Heilig Meyers - London, KY / One of the biggest mistakes of my life!

1 United Kingdom Review updated:

My last dealing with Heilig Meyers turned out to be one of the biggest mistakes of my life! In 2000, I purchased a washer/dryer and mattress/box springs. It started going bad right away, because I was paying my payments in advance, and every time I would go in, they would claim I owed a late fee. I would have to argue with them every time a payment was due. Then, without any notice, they closed the store. They never sent me any information whatsoever about where to send payments, or how to contact them in any way. I waited patiently, months passed, and still nothing. At the end of 2000, I moved to a different city. Still, I had no idea how to take care of my debt. Now, almost seven years later, a law firm contacted my dad, and then myself, about the account. Unfortunately, I do not have the money to pay them off in a one-lump sum, and that is what they are expecting me to do. I feel that they do not have the right to insist on full payment, because it is not my fault that the debt has not already been paid! I would have gladly continued payments, if they had given me information on where to send them! Has anyone else faced this problem? What can I do to resolve this matter, without putting myself in a financial crisis? Thanx!

    I had purchased a living room suit from Heilig Meyers in 1999, I was making payments as agreed. When I received my income tax return for 2000, I went into the store paid my account in full. I remember the man that I had given the money to, his name was Miles. I started getting calls 5 years later from a collection agency stating that I owed Heilig Meyers over $1,100.00. I informed them that I had paid that account in full over 5 years ago, they stated that If I don't have a receipt to prove that I owe them then I would have to pay. Now today 11-29-06, I have been served a summons, where I am being sued...Someone please tell me how they can do this almost 6 years later.....Thanks
