Jim...Thank you. This is what I try to advise people. you are not the first and surley will n ot be the last person this happens to. I had this happen to my sister and she didn't even have a garnishment or judgement. Nope, they just decided to dip into her account and take some funds. She had disputed it with her bank and the bank had replaced the money and gone after the creditor that took it. I fo not believe she even had it set up on the automatic system. They somehow (creditors) have ways of finding bank accounts (should be illegal) and doing this. People usaully get their money back when they do it this way but it takes some time.

I have had this happen to me, I have posted before about how they just go in and take the money out and I have had to go to the bank to file the dispute and get my money back. Pain in the rear and I have no clue how they got my bank account information.

Violation of rights.....peeves me off...You think you could have sued them for doing this since it smells illegal to me. Did the bank say you had any legal action you could take against them? Be nice to see them pay for a change.

No, you do not have any other option. Your bank account will continue to be garnished so long as the judgment amount is paid back in full. Whenever any money gets credited in your checking account, the bank will debit it from your account automatically and send it to the creditor.

No they can not take wages that are from Social security. You will have to make them aware of the fact that this is what the money is from. You may also want to notify your bank. They also can not take money from your bank account,unless you give them permission, until they get a judgement in their favor.

No, the creditor cannot take money from your checking account if the money that gets credited there is your social security benefit, because according to the Federal law, ss benefit cannot be garnished. However, you should inform the bank in writing that the the credited money is your ss benefit so that they do not garnish it. SS income can only be garnished for outstanding Federal Tax recovery and alimony and child support obligations.

How do they find out your checking accounts and what bank they are at?

If the creditor or the collection agency has your social security number, they can easily track your bank account details through that number, because the ss number is required when we apply for a new checking account.

Hi Prudence
There are two options available to you. You either need to keep the money in your bank account or keep cash with you. Now, since you owe money to the creditors, they can sue you to the court anytime and bring judgment against you to garnish your bank account and take money out from there. So I think that the best option is to keep cash with you. However, you can also invest the money in gold.
