I just recieved a letter from the san benardino county sheriffs dept. Notice of levy under writ of execution (money judgement) on any and all accounts for a boat I voluntarily repossesed to the credit union 2008 because I was out of work for six months and could not afford the payments. It says "limited civil case". It says judgement entered on 5/30/2008. The notice was mailed to me 3/6/14. This was six years ago. I know I cant be sued because california law is four years. Is bancrupcty a good choice? This was filed in the county of los angeles in th city of pomona.
