I WAS SERVED JUDGEMENT IN JUNEOF 2011, AND MADE PAYMENT ARRAGEMENTS MONTHLY FROM JULY, 2011 TO SEPTEMBER 2012 TO SATIFSY THE AMOUNT OWED. I HAVE ALL THE CKECK STUBS AND PAYMENTS TOTALED $3850, AMOUNT OWED WAS $3717. NOW IN JULY OF 2013 MY EMPLOYER RECIEVED A WRIT OF GARNISHMENT FROM THIS SAME LAW OFFICE, YET I WAS NEVER NOTIFIED OF THIS WRIT. THE BALANCE OF $1100 WAS STATED AS THE AMOUNT THAT I DEFAULTED ON. MY WAGES HAVE BEEN GARNISHED SINCE 7/29/13 TO DATE FOR A TOTAL OF $3476, THIS IS NOT RIGHT! AN HONEST EFFORT WAS MADE BY MYSELF TO PAY THIS DEBT IN 2011 AND THAT WAS DONE. THE LAW OFFICE HAS MADE NO ATTEMPT TO INFORM ME OF THIS DEFAULT, IT APPEARS THAT THEY ARE FINANCIALLY RAPING ME TO A POINT THAT I HAVE NO FINANICAL MEANING TO PROVIDE FOR ME AND MY FAMILY.
