I havent been paying my debts for about 4 years now. Sounds like from your response that this Writ of Garnishment is a very strong tool for debt collectors..yet in 4 years of not paying no one has seized money from my bank accounts. Not sure if anyone else had this type of Writ of Garnishment against me though Maybe thats becausue. Why wouldnt they all have used this tool and sooner?
No one has seized money from my accounts so far although I have changed banks and brokerages so maybe they cant find the $, not sure.
How good are they at finding peoples bank and brokerage accounts? My bank account is about 2 years old and my brokerage accounts are new this year
Any chance they could come and take my Car with this Writ ? The Car has no debt on it
Well my Car is worth probably approximately $4,000. So youre saying unless I see a "Writ to attach non exempt property" from them my Car is safe.
I was planning to ignore the request they have sent me to list all my exempt property. Is that a good idea? Perhaps I should respond listing my car as exempt and list the value of my car as $3,000. My Car does have 108,000 miles on it.
