In Calif. law, is there a penalty for avoiding process server?

One of my cr.card people is sending process server over long pastdue

balance. Can I get in trouble for avoiding them, denying my identity in person? They came to my house and more or less told me I must not be telling the truth when I denied identity & said I forwarded mail.

Update:

It's almost exactly one year late, about

$17,000.

    No. If a process server can't serve you personally, you can be served "by publication," publishing the summons as a legal ad the the local newspaper and adding the cost to the judgment.

    A process server has no legally enforceable power.

    how long is the balance past due?

    Is it past the statute of limitations?

    You might not even owe them the money.
