Prince Sues

Debt Collector

Owes ME $116K

EXCLUSIVE

1019_princePrince just filed the most awesome lawsuit against a collection agency -- 'cause, for a change, he's going after them to get back more than $100,000 the agency allegedly jacked from his bank account.

According to the suit ... Capital Asset Protection made two withdrawls from Prince's bank accounts back in June in the amount of $105,949.14 and $10,278.94.

CAP was collecting the money for a lawsuit Prince previously lost over a music production contract.

But in the new documents, filed Thursday in L.A. County Superior Court, Prince says a judge vacated that original judgement in October, 2011 ... thereby erasing his debt to the production company.

So, according to the suit, CAP collected on a debt that didn't exist. Oops.

Prince is suing to get back his $116,228.12 ... plus interest.

Baby, he's a star.

MADE MAN    

I was sitting at my desk at work thursday and a collection agency called my Verizon wireless phone asking about an almost 8 year old Cingular wireless account that I had for my little sister lol. I asked him how did he get my number and he said (verbatim) "sir, that's the least of your concern" I'm thinking it was an outrageous amount and it was like 200 dollars lol. I asked him "so your hounding and harassing me over a $197, 7 1/2 year old acct in which the company doesnt even exist any more" he said "well I'm just doing my job" and I hung my phone up on him. I hate collectors

prince pay your bills so you will not have to go to a debt collection. you should never give your bank account espically with your money. you should have also sued for lawyer fees & inconvience(pain & suffering). you need to teach these people a lesson. you need to be aware of your everyday life in general not just music. good luck. a long time fan. cathye o.
