Atteddyarethy : A note was pasted on the door saying that there's a delivery for this address, with a phone number to call. I called the number and was told I was being sued by someone and they were going to deliver a citation. I would have thought that something like that would be delivered by legitimate law enforcement, or certified US mail, not somebody driving around in a delivery truck. The note that was on the door is computer-printed, too, with the phone number of a "process server" in the area, so it's not like it was UPS or FedEx. They wouldn't have these slips of paper on their trucks.

Also, concerning credit cards, I thought banks would write off bad accounts and sell them to other companies which would then try to collect on them. Now any bill I ever charged, I always intended to pay back, but through things beyond my control, many of those bills never got paid and I can't pay them now, either. But in my view, I would still owe the original creditors, not these people who have bought the account. That, as I see it, is their "risk" of doing business. They assume they can get a certain number of people to pay on the old debts so they can receive in payments more than they paid for the account. I wouldn't mind paying the original creditors one day, but I don't want to pay someone who I never owed any money to. That just seems wrong to me because someone else profits off a bank's loss through my payment of someone I never borrowed money from, and the original creditor is only helped by what that company paid them for my account.

It's not my goal to get out of paying these things, but it's hard enough to get on your feet without debt at all, and it doesn't matter if it was caused by "mental problems". They still pack on the interest and make any kind of recovery impossible.



What do you think?

free ads : They still have to serve you in person, but anyone can serve you.
As to credit cards, once the bill is in collections, it is sold to that company and they retain the legal rights to it. If you wanted to get it off your credit report you would have to pay the reporting company.

WeresocaFarie : The requirements to serve a summons vary from state to state. In some states, a summons can be mailed but in others it must be served by a sheriff. Many states allow anyone to serve a summons.

Once you receive the summons be sure to respond within the time allotted. Failure to respond could result in a summary judgment. You also need to show up in court to avoid a default judgment.

Many credit card companies now are very aggressive in collecting defaulted accounts. Some, like CapOne and Citibank, have in-house collection depts and will sue for even a small balance. Likewise, collection agencies who specialize in buying defaulted credit card debt are also more likely to sue. They bought the debt and you owe them. Your "view" about owing teh original creditor is wrong.

You are correct that these collectors do not care what caused your financial problems. They just want to be paid. When you go to court, you will find that the court also does not care about your personal drama. Mental problems are not a legal defense to not paying your debts.

I think the best thing you can do is negotiate a settlement with the collector BEFORE you get that summons. You should be able to settle for 25% to 50% in a lump sum, depending on how old the default. Forget about payment plans -- you would be required to sign a consent judgment. Be sure to get any settlement agreement in writing before you pay and dont' give the collector direct access to your bank account.

pypeMuttutice : I've download GTK+ 2 but I cannot compile the program based on whats on the tutorial at https://developer.gnome.org/gtk-tutorial/stable/c39.html using the commands:
gcc base.c -o base `pkg-config --cflags --libs gtk+-2.0`

It comes up with an error saying pkg config is unknown. I later found out that this is because that's a linux command. So what I want to know is how do I compile this simple gtk program below on windows? Can you also give me the list of steps on what I need to change the PATH to after downloading and also ensure that the compilation process is clear. The simple code is as following:
#include <gtk/gtk.h>

int main( int argc,
char *argv[] )
{
GtkWidget *window;

gtk_init (&argc, &argv);

window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
gtk_widget_show (window);

gtk_main ();

return 0;
}

Please help me out, various sites haven't proved useful

wattplailky : all compilers use Environment variables to access Search paths for includes.
in other words pkg-config lives somewhere and you must make sure something is pointing to it.
at a dos prompt where you type in the gcc command type in SET to SEE your environment variables ther should be one for INCLUDES and one to point to pkg-config so it seems to be called pkg_config_path from a search on the internet. it looks superfluous anyway for windows.
it seems to HELP set other GCC options for you. just write a bat file to do that.

# Program name: File Search
# Author: Aaron Murillo

# Purpose: Allows users to search though a file for phrases

# PROGRAM'S MAIN LOGIC
print "FILE SEARCH PROGRAM\n"
phrase=(raw_input("Enter a case dependent phrase for which to search the Jargon File (Press enter alone to quit):"))
jargonFile=open("jargonfile.txt","r")
phrase=jargonFile.readline()
while phrase!="":
dog=int(jargonFile.readline()
fish=int(jargonFile.readline()
print phrase,dog*fish
phrase=jargonFile.readline()
jargonFile.close()

raw_input("\nRun complete. Press the Enter key to exit.")

I''m not sure if I'm on the right track. This is what Im supposed to do.

COMS B10 – Structured Program Design
Assignment #5 (File Search)

Create the Python program that will allow users to search though a file (jargonFile.txt) for phrases. Your program should be able to create a run that looks EXACTLY like the sample run.

Your program should perform the following:

1. Print “FILE SEARCH PROGRAM” as your heading.
2. Print a blank line.
3. Ask the user for the search phrase (this phrase is case dependent).
4. Using the file “jargonFile.txt” found on my web site, search for the phrase
5. Print the line number and character position anytime the phrase is found in the file until the end of the file is reached.
6. When the end of the file is reached, print how may lines the phrase was found in.
7. Keep asking for a new phrase until the user types just the enter key without any other characters being input.
8. Print the number of times the user searched the file.
9. Terminate the program in the normal method.

Additional notes:
• You must use the program template for your program.
• Upload a copy of your program source code to Moodle AND turn in a printed copy of your source code to me.
• Your messages and prompts should look EXACTLY like those in the sample. Duplicating all blank lines and spacing.

Sample run:

FILE SEARCH PROGRAM

Enter the case dependent phrase for which to search the Jargon File (Press Enter alone to quit): Dog
Found it in line 8496 - first occurrence at character 44
Found it in line 12738 - first occurrence at character 12
Found it in line 12750 - first occurrence at character 66

Your phrase was found in 3 lines.

Enter the case dependent phrase for which to search the Jargon File (Press Enter alone to quit):Fish
Found it in line 4295 - first occurrence at character 25
Found it in line 5199 - first occurrence at character 25
Found it in line 15000 - first occurrence at character 22
Found it in line 24922 - first occurrence at character 61
Found it in line 35734 - first occurrence at character 20
Found it in line 35891 - first occurrence at character 18
Found it in line 35902 - first occurrence at character 23

Your phrase was found in 7 lines.

Enter the case dependent phrase for which to search the Jargon File (Press Enter alone to quit):

You searched for 2 phrases.

Run complete. Press the Enter key to exit.
