Consumer Complaint: In XXXX I responded to a wage garnishment. I went to the court and filed the necessary response. The officer informed me that the company had 30 days to send a response. The 30 days came and went. Since I had asked for a copy of my application and the amount owed at the time of write off I assumed this information could not be found. I then called Discover and was told to contact the agency that had my account. I spoke to a rep who was located in New Jersey about my account. He started to ask my information like address, ss #. I decided that if this company was suing me they should have this information. When I asked this question I was ” disconnected ”. I did n’t hear from the agency again. XX/XX/XXXX I was informed by my payroll department that my wages would be garnished again I tried to get information. This time I found that the agency is in XXXX XXXX. The practices of this company are sneaky and unfair. I feel I did respond within the time frame. I was also told by the sheriff that I had correctly responded to the order. Why was there no response? The company then waits a year to garnish me without any further notification?
