Subject: Frozen bank account from default judgement ~ HELP, please!
Posted on Fri Jan 08, 2010 4:39 pm  

I realized yesterday that my bank account has been frozen due to an unpaid debt to Capital One in the amount of roughly $1600. A judgement was entered in VA on 10/09 and the order to seize the account in 12/09. The return date is 2/10. I was never served for any of these court dates, neither by mail or in person. After contacting Capital One, I was able to determine that the paperwork was served to our previous address (in VA ~ we moved to NC in 2006).

My husband and I are jointly on the account. I have no source of income, thus all of the money "belongs" to my husband. The account includes his VA benefits. My bank has held the amount on the order they received and has released the remainder to us.

I was contacted by phone by Capital One in Sept. '09 to inform me of an "impending court date" (no specifics given) with the opportunity to settle the debt. I requested validation of the debt as I was not familiar with either the account number nor the amount owed. I never heard back from them and assumed it was an error.

The questions...Do I have grounds to have the motion set aside based on 1-improper service or is the last known address good enough and 2-I live in NC and am being sued and required to appear in another state? Can I still dispute the debt with Capital One even though a judgement has already been entered? If so, will disputing the debt stop the garnishment and require the bank to release all of our funds? Can the bank hold the full amount when there is a joint account holder and some of the funds come from the VA? Can (and if so how do) I petition the bank to release my husband's money? I believe VA monies are exempt from garnishment (?). Do you know a round-about figure an attorney will charge to help us with this?
I'm sure I have more questions, but will start with these.
Thank you!

Do I have grounds to have the motion set aside based on 1-improper service
**Probably, check Rules of Civil Procedure in the State where you were sued. All States have rules as to what constitutes "service". They probably had to serve you or someone 18+ in your household. If you didn't live there, it wasn't your household. You have to move fast though before the money goes to them. Once they get it in their greedy hands, good luck getting it back.

Can I still dispute the debt with Capital One even though a judgement has already been entered?
**Disputing the debt is done with third party debt collectors, not original creditors. You could dispute it with the attorney who filed the lawsuit but not with Cap One.

Can the bank hold the full amount when there is a joint account holder and some of the funds come from the VA?
**If your name is on the account, they can take it unless it is SSI benefits.

Do you know a round-about figure an attorney will charge to help us with this?
**That varies greatly as to where in the country you live but most attorneys are going to ask for a retainer of a few thousand dollars to start.

I am NOT an attorney but I hope I was able to help a little.

I am not sure how soon you have after a judgment is places to have it vacated but I would check and see if this is possible. call the clourthouse and ask them if it is too late to file a motion to vacate the judgment.
When you sent the valdation letter do you send it by certified mail return reciept? If so that would be proof you were not given proper validation. By looking at your dates it seems you requested validation after you moved so they should have had your current address from the validation letter. You could prove that if someone from the collection company signed for the validation letter.
Collectors are notorious for sending information to a previous address. One of their tricky tatics.

Can a lawyer debt collector freeze your bank account with only mailing you a letter or does the letter need to be served?

Hi Harold,

Can I know what this letter is about? A lawyer can serve you through mail. However, this also depends on the state laws. You need t check your state laws regarding serving summons.

Democrats must learn how to address Blue America's housing crisis

definitely much talk of a crisis, Based on statistics that fit this description one, From a 2018 report by the Pew charity Trusts: Of the nearly 43 million households who rented their homes in the country, 7.3 million 17percent spend half or more from the monthly income on rent. frequent, Their apartments are an hour or two away from where they work.the specific situation is worst in booming coastal cities such as Los Angeles, sf and Seattle, Which means it is really a Blue America problem, And that Democrats both those who run the blue states and those campaigning for president are under pressure to come up with solutions.It's difficult: Democrats are the party of govt, But the housing crisis is largely government created. communities neat, Green and oh so pleasant hinder work.That web of rules has accrued over years: present in 1960, indiana had 2.5 million people and enough zoned real estate to accommodate housing for 10 million. The sponsor was a Democrat from frisco, subsidized by Newsom. Opponents were progressive groups that said the bill would enrich private developers but not ensure value and Democratic elected officials from such places as Beverly Hills, Palo Alto and West the show biz industry.Among Democratic applicants for president, Sen. elizabeth Warren (D block.) one of detailed housing plan and, To her credit reports, It detects "The root causes of trouble" As deficiency of supply, "And state and local land use rules that needlessly drive up housing costs,She would encourage states and localities to change these rules through a $10 billion grant program may well fund parks, Roads or schools in return for land use reform. It's prefer the Obama administration's " Race to top rated" working out reform program, But for a place to stay. It also resembles a state level incentive plan Newsom has proposed in California.Then Warren would spend $500 billion over following decade "to get, maintain and rehab" appealing units on the freed up land (And at the neighbors), Paid for by rejuvenating estate taxes repealed by the Republican Congress and President Trump in 2017.evidently, If Warren really wanted to shake things up, She would fund her plans through the elimination of both the mortgage interest deduction, For an estimated savings of $33.9billion annually, And the exemption of capital gains on home sales, very good $36.3 thousand.Ending those breaks would raise revenue reducing huge tax code subsidies for single family housing another "real cause" Of America's distorted residential real estate markets. West seminole florida, And the rest of America's suburban upper middle-class, could not like it, even although.Tax changes might even be more sound, As house policy reform, Than spending a national fund on a shortage that is crippling in some spots but nonexistent in others. Warren would distribute the online dating ukraine money through all 50 state governments guaranteeing that the dollars would not always go where they were most needed.Warren pinpoints a real challenge and its real origins. Her proposed approach taxes the ultra rich "14,000 of the wealthiest families, In the words of Warren's plan but this populist flourish tends to obscure the much wider role of the suburban upper middle-class.positive attitude people who would ultimately decide whether local communities accept zoning reform. And recent political events in California suggest that their acceptance would be grudging indeed, Even if the government sweetened the pot with infrastructure funds per Warren's plan. Perhaps it's better to see what that state's own efforts yield before committing the whole country's resources.It is largely in Blue America that the future of the nation's most sought after living spaces will be dependant, With huge effects for the Democrats, And for the social and economic company the party champions.
