Help. I opened my door and there were rolled up paper on my porch. No envelope, nothing. When I read the papers it says I am being sued in Tenn. for something I posted online about a company I was an independent contractor for in the fall. It says it is a summons. I am in Virginia. No one knocked on my door, I was home all day. Also, the certificate of service says it was served to me on 1/6/11 by the plaintiffs atty. at my Virginia address and he has sworn to that and notarized it himself, he is a notary. Funny, thing is that the court papers were also filed on that day. Was I legally served? How does a Tenn. court have jurisdiction over me. I am so confused. Also, wouldn't they are to prove that I am the one who posted the comments that they claim I posted. They are also claiming I lured other people to work for other companies in their field. This not true. I currently do not work for anyone in the field of telemarketing and have no relationships with other telemarketing companies. In fact, the four months I worked for them is the only telemarketing work I have ever done. They also do affiliate marketing and I have never done that type of work. I am in grad school for education. They have been threatening me for a month. I am wondering if this is even a real lawsuit. As I said, it is just the paper they supposedly filed by the court, witness by the atty. that is suing me for them. I have gotten things from civil courts before and they were always mailed by the clerk of the court.
