I just finished dealing with my lawyer and the government red tape we have to go through to open an estate (a hassle in itself. 6 months and two lawyers just to accomplish a half hour paperwork job
), just to be hit with a banking institution I never contracted with for online services looking for payment on a "debt" that was incurred over 2 years ago. This debt was over a bank error that I disputed, but they refused to acknowledge. When I refused to pay bills until they recognized it, all of a sudden they found my dispute and we finally resolved it with final payment to the bank to as the seal to the issue - or so I thought. Apparently the bank insulates itself by using third party contracts for the online payments, but now they refuse to pay the contractor and the contractor is comming back to me. Even with the letters of resolution they are not bothering to even contact the bank for proof of payment and my legwork can not access the bank records.
The entertainment industry is well known for their underhanded, conniving ways, but I think there is more corruption elsewhere. What do you think?
