You can ask them to validate your debt as its your civil right under FTC. Go to www.adviceontime.com they have an article that deals with credit, educate yourself and good luck.

Yes a 3rd party collector can sue you (chances are they own the debt now). No, you can't get out of paying it if there's a judgement filed against you. The only way you can get out of it is by filing bankruptcy, but I'm not sure if there's enough time to do that with your impending court date.

Not if you do not show up for court. They will get whats called a default judgment and then can attach bank accounts, garnish your wages and file liens on any property you may own like vehicles, land or homes.

If the debt wasnt yours, go to the court and dispute it. If you do not go to court, they will get a judgment against you and be able to garnish your wages and/or bank account. And yes, a collection company can sue you for a past debt because they bought the debt from the original creditor.

Nope, if you owe a debt and refuse to pay the collection agency, on behalf of the credit, can sue you. If you can and want to avoid court, and if it is not too late, call them and see if you can settle. Be prepared to make a payment over the phone right then and there.
