    Hi there. After years of struggling to have no leads or customers use our services to 'pay back' our trade account, and with terrible, inconsistent local franchise support, Bartercard wants me to pay $10k+ trade back in cash.
    After no contact from Bartercard after explaining the history of my account, I heard nothing from them for approx. 4yrs, only to now, out of the blue, receive court documents?

    a demand for payment

    You are obliged to reply within the timeframe.
    if you don't then you risk a default judgement against you.
    Its time to get formal legal advice.
