Any creditor who has been given a Judgment against you in a Court of law, can levy your bank account. A levy is one way a writ of judgment can be enforced to collect a debt until it is paid in full.
A judgment is the Court order that gives the Plaintiff/Creditor the power to levy (attach) the Defendant/Debtor's bank account. There can also be a levy against wages, but in Texas this is not allowed.
If there is a judgment against you, there really is no recourse to stop the levy.
