Product: Credit card debt
Issue: Written notification about debt
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: This company has sent documents as a CERTIFIED DOCUMENTS ADDRESSED in MY SON ‘S NAME! I believe it is a time-barred debt. The debt was filed on XX/XX/XXXX, the judgement date is XX/XX/XXXX. This debt originated when I used to live in XXXX ( which was years ago ). The issue I have is that my son ‘s name was typed on a sticker and pasted over my name. My son is only XXXX years old. My check was being garnished. I believe that is part of a step to try to resolve the issue. Also, I do believe about two years ago a statute was passed that debt collectors could not garnish your pay if you lived in certain counties in XXXX. XXXX County being one of them. My concern is that is this even legal?
