Thank you for your question.

The collection agency does not have the power to take your property unless they go into court, sue you and obtain a judgment against you. Once they have a judgment, they may try to force the sale of your assets to pay off the judgment. However, Pennsylvania does not allow for the garnishment of wages in this scenario.
