Do they have the right to do this, without me even knowing about it?? Is that the way that the court works?? I am looking for adviced on this. Thank you,
Yes, this is how these collection agents work, but it is also illegal for them to obtain a judgment without providing you service with the actual lawsuit and giving you the opportunity to answer the suit in court. Since in order to obtain a judgment a suit must be filed and you as the defendant needed to be served with the suit. You need to file a motion to vacate the judgment based on denial of your rights to due process in that you were never served with the suit. Then you would have the opportunity to file an answer to the suit and fight the case.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX going on for 3 1/2 years already. the thing is that an individuo Forgery my name and signed a document that said, in case of any problem with the business western union will charge the person who the business was under, incluring lawyers fees. On top of that he also send information to the IRS with my name and SS# XXXXX time he got the SS# XXXXX so, I was available to get the IRS out of the mess. They send me a letter that said becaused of the Fraud that was committed with my name and SS# XXXXX was not responsible for the taxes of that business. western union on their side being changing from one lawyer office to another. The first one said we done with you, you are not responsible. that one is gone. then they got another one after 2 years of nothing happening, that one is gone to. Now they got this lawyer, and without any knowloges of his existance or action, he did this execution on favor of his client. I think he was using information from the other lawyers, maybe?? But where are my right here, that was a fraud reported to the police back them with my name and SS#. The person who committed the fraud got away with more than $20,000 dollars belong to western Union money transfer agency. And i found out that he did it before to western union. Their first lawyer told me that. But Western union do not want to go after him, he is out of the country. So, i am the one here. They want me to pay for what that person stole from them using my name. that is the whole picture.
reason why I got confused yesterday with that execution of money judgment that looks like a done deal?? That is not right, is not fair, and i did not take anything from them. I can tried to go back to the lawyer that have that case for me, back them.
But my question to you will be: is that execution of money judgment that their last lawyer got a done deal? what is my chances of fight this here. Does the facts ever matter to anyone, but me in this case? do I really have to pay what someone else stole using my name and SS#?? really,
After this answer I sure be done, and know what to do in this case. thank you,
If you do not file an objection to the execution and file a motion to vacate the default judgment, the execution would be a done deal. What this bottom feeding firm did is they filed a suit and then lied about serving you or pretended not to know where to locate your to serve you and they obtained a default judgment against you which then allowed them to get this execution of judgment against you. Thus, you now need to backtrack and undo whatever underhanded thing they did without your knowledge and get the court to undo it based on their conduct. You have good grounds but you need to get to court and get these motions to vacate filed
