Should I have to pay a collection for services I was forced to use?
I was charged with a DUI. I was
actually just parked, waiting for a
ride and fell asleep with my car
heater on - it was snowing outside.
Anyhow, I was taken to jail and the
police later called an ambulance to
come get me from the jail. I was
very intoxicated, but never
requested or authorized the need for
an ambulance. I was taken to the
hospital and they said I did not
require any treatment. I was then
taken back to the jail. So, I was
forced to go int his ambulance that I
did not need and the ambulance
company has sent it to collections. I
am being asked to pay 475.00 plus
260.00 in interest for a debt in
2003. Is this debt truly my
responsibility? Is it worth it to
dispute this debt?

You can dispute the debt and make them sue you to collect it. It is up to you whether it is worth it.
