Well I challenged it online, taking advantage of a program that allows a judge to review a statement that you type up.
A few days ago I got a letter in the mail stating that they had received my challenge and they wanted to offer me two options:
- I could go ahead and pay it, and they would knock off $20 bucks (um . . . thanks a lot)
- Or I could do nothing and it would proceed to a judge for review
I chose to do nothing. I figure it's a long shot that it will get dismissed, but it's a chance I'm willing to take, and it's worth an extra $20 bucks to have my voice HEARD!
