California Francise Tax Board had court issue garnishment of my pension accounts with HSBC in New York City, claiming I owe them $14,182.54 from wages in 1992. I was not a California resident at that time but may have income from American President Lines located in Oakland, California. I received a total of $3,765 monthly between XXXXX XXXXXcock Annuity (my union pension fund) and social security. I have been a retired seaman here in Thailand since November, 1993. HSBC has issued a LGL document on 9/25/12 and docked my account the sum of $100.00. What is your advice? I had contacted the CFTB this morning and requested they provide me with the company I worked for. I was not a resident of Californian in 1992. They were unable to provide me with that information. I was requested to call them on Thursday, Wednesday their time.
My research has shown that they cannot granish social security or my XXXXX XXXXXcock Annuity pension benefits. In addition statue of limitations is 10 years. They are going back 20 years.Those two pension checks are the only income I have being deposited into my HSBC accounts. NOTHING ELSE!
