Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I had complained about this previously in complaint number XXXX. I have now paid in FULL the entire about of the judgement filed against me, which by the way was three time the original debt, which they purchased for pennies on the dollar. I called the court yesterday to find out the status of getting my bank account hold released since I completed the payment of this judgement in XXXX. And I received a statement from the court showing a ZERO balance due, listing all the payments made and the amounts. I was told that the collection agency is looking for MORE money. {$47.00} to be exact. And the woman from the court was going to make a second call to them to find out the status. And would call me back if she made any headway. Needless to say I did not hear back from her. I also went on the website NJ courts to see the status of the docket. The case status shows as closed. The Proceed status shows as completed. And there is a Document type of ” Wage Exec Iss ” that shows as ACTIVE. My wages were never garnished. And I would like to know why this is active. And how I can get a COMPLETE release from Pressler and Pressler stating I have COMPLETELY and TOTALLY satisfied any and all judgement and dealing with them. XXXX XXXX XXXX ( the account they levied on in XXXX XXXX ) will not allow me to close that account as they are saying they have received NO paper work stating they can remove the levy. Meanwhile they handed over the {$2400.00} or so dollars to the court and charged their {$120.00} in legal fees. I have now paid close to {$4000.00} for a debt that was originally {$1300.00} and I am still Being EXTORTED by this company. Their behavior is criminal and their tactics are shady. I want this done. I want a complete release from them and I will not pay them one more penny. As this is unfair and unethical treatment. They are taking advantage because they know where I work and how detrimental a problem like this could potentially be. This is the worst form of legal extortion I have ever encountered. Pressler and Pressler and XXXX XXXX ( another arm of their corrupt marginalization ) should be disbarred. Who ever heard of lawyers collecting debts for THEIR own profit. There should be so legality against this. I want the wage garnisment closed, erased, destroyed, however it is done and this docket closed. The docket number is XXXX. Everyone should know what a fraud this firm is. I am SURE I am not the first nor the last to complain about their unethical practices.
