I searched online, but had trouble finding an address for Springcastle America Funding Trust. This company had taken over an account originally owned by HSBC, HFC, or Beneficial entity. A client was able to provide a copy of a collection notice which contained the address for this collection agency: PO Box 1231, Brandon, FL 33509-1231.
A few days ago, I posted about the disappearance of an active Yahoo! Group for EZ-Filing users. No answer has emerged and one attorney I communicated with could only speculate about why the Group was deleted.
Since I have archives of messages from this Group going back to 2009, I have a pretty decent list of the most active members. The best solution seemed to be to start a new Yahoo! Group for EZ-Filing users and invite the member of the previous group.
Then, while I was at it, it seemed reasonable to start similar Yahoo! Groups for two other bankruptcy software programs which I use often: Bankruptcy2013 by New Hope and Best Case by Walters Kluwer. So three new Yahoo! Groups are up and running. Here are the links:
If you’re a user of any of these software programs, I hope you’ll join these discussion groups and add your feedback and advice!
I don’t have an answer, but I’m curious if anyone has any information about the Group’s sudden disappearance. One attorney and former member of the Group emailed me and said it had to have gone offline sometime during the past week. I wonder how many Group members are not even aware yet that the Group is gone.
I follow a Yahoo!® Group for EZ-Filing users and have been hearing about the misery being experienced by many of the bankruptcy lawyers who use EZ-Filing. Whatever is happening with this bankruptcy software program, it is certainly not being clearly communicated to its loyal customers and they’re not liking that fact!
Some are so unhappy, they are considering a switch to Best Case. (Some have already moved on.) Today I posted a reply to the Yahoo! thread and suggested that any attorney who is thinking of giving up on EZ-Filing take a look at Bankruptcy2012 from New Hope before they commit to Best Case.
In my reply, I linked to a post I had written on this blog about the New Hope software and why it is my favorite of all the BK programs. I shocked myself when I realized that post was written in 2009 when the program was called Bankruptcy2009 (they change the title each year). I can’t believe three years have passed since I wrote that post and I pointed out, in my Yahoo! reply, that the program has been so reliable there hadn’t been anything to write about … except that it was still working.
So, I decided to update my 2009 post to let you know: Bankruptcy2009 aka Bankruptcy2012 is still working … GREAT!

Using Microsoft’s Snipping Tool, I grabbed this address from the back of an electronic invoice from Comcast Communications. It’s an address for the Legal Department of Comcast Cable Communications (One Comcast Center, Philadelphia, PA 19103-2838). I searched online for a specific bankruptcy notice address, but this is the closest I could find. The effective date is only a little more than a year old (March 1, 2011) so it’s fairly current.
