Consumer Complaint: Specialized Loan Services ( SLS ) issued a XXXX to cancel the foreclosure debt in XXXX. In XXXX SLS sold my information to XXXX XXXX XXXX ( XXXX ). XXXX XXXX XXXX purchased the information and some how got a judgement against me in a Wisconsin Court. XXXX XXXX XXXX contacted me in XXXX stating they had a garnishment against my wages from a court date that happened in XXXX. I was never notified and did not know about the court date to try to show that the debt was cancelled and no longer a valid debt. Several attorneys have told me that it is illegal to ” double dip ” meaning getting a tax break from the government by issuing a XXXX and then selling the bad information so that another company can collect. I would like for this to stop. I have notified the XXXX XXXX XXXX that this was a cancelled debt and they refuse to stop with the garnishment. Stating that it is a different account number.
