Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
Good evening Chris
The bank whose credit card debt was discharged in your Bankruptcy can do nothing to attempt to collect that debt - including taking money from a savings account that belongs to you.
Even if that savings account is in that bank.
Yes - it does not matter where the savings account is, the bank would be in violation of the Bankruptcy Code if they touch your savings account. The fact that the savings account is in the same bank that you owed money to does not give the bank the right to take that money.
And please have a pleasant evening!
