Hi! My name is ***** *****. I have received a writ of garnishment
for a vehicle I surrendered in 2008. Plus, it is $6000 over what I owed at the point I surrendered it, which I am guessing is interest? I thought they only had so many years to garnish my wages or attempt to collect any more dept.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I was married in 06 to a man that also co-signed for the vehicle. The way the dealers told us, was that neither one of us could get it by ourselves, but if he co-signed, I would be able to. My ex was going to make the payments because he was a driller at the time and ended up only making 3 payments and then they fell to me (he couldn't keep a job). I already had 2 kids and then him to take care of. Anyway, in the beginning of 08, the railcar repair shop I worked at laid everyone off and shut down. We moved to a different town, I finally found a job and was struggling to keep us afloat. My ex disappeared due to threatening my kids and myself (and much more) so then I called the company to surrender because I just couldn't do it anymore. That was in May of 08, I believe.
