Debt Collectors Have Figured Out A Way To Seize Your Wages And Savings

Debt Collectors Have Figured Out A Way To Seize Your Wages And Savings

Commented Jun 2, 2014 at 10:46:04 in Business

“This is NOT a new tactic. This has been the standard for a long time with debt collectors. First come the letters, then the phone calls, and then it goes to a "law firm" (jumped up debt collectors) who go to court.

It is VERY important that no one ignore any mail that comes from these agencies, even if it's incorrect. Even if you're in the right (i.e. this is not your account, or it's been paid, or whatever) you need to address this, possibly in court.

If you do owe this money, and you don't address it, they can successfully garnish your wages, although state law on how much they can garnish varies; I believe there are limits depending on how much you make, your dependents, etc.

At a previous job we received these wage garnishment notices all the time. I had to contact the employee involved and talk them through it. It was always traumatic for them, and I always did what I could to try and walk them through the process.

If you owe money for a credit card or hospital bill or whatever the case is, don't ignore it, even if you're out of work and having a really hard time. Try contacting the the agency involved and working something out. They may not be willing to work with you, but at least try.

I know this from experience. Best wishes to anyone dealing with this massive headache.”

“I understand completely & couldn't agree more! :)”

“You understand nothing. Nothing I've stated is factually or morally wrong. Your same form of reasoning is the equivalent of saying that our children will become gay simply because they see gay married couples on the street. It is spectacularly short sighted and underestimates the intelligence of those children. Instead of trying to protect them for reality parent them. Tell them what is normal, what isn't normal. Tell them about what is healthy and what isn't healthy. Raise them. You guys are advocating for lying to children, a lie has never done any good. It is better to have the conversation especially now when they are young and still responsive to parenting and forming good habits rather then later when they hit puberty. By then your lack of parenting will surely lead to a eating disorder rather it is eating too little, or eating too much. The fact that my point wasn't even intended to be harsh shows how closed-minded both you and Fran Jaime are. It is was actually nuance in its tone acknowledging the need for better understanding of what is healthy. Being overweight does not mean overweight. It means you are statistically over the average weight range for age. That is all it means, anything else is your own projection and prejudices.”

“Over a pound? Really? That's the silliest thing I've heard today. (And I'm a New Yorker. I see and hear silly things on an hourly basis.)”

MeanMachine on May 28, 2014 at 00:22:38

“That is how math works. That is how it has worked since counting was invented. The report was standardized like any other statistical exam. Sometimes people read what they want to read into the results, instead of stating the actual results. It is not silly. Why would you think it is silly? Give an honest statement, nothing hyperbolic.”

“As a product of the New York City school system, I can say with experience:

Never listen to anyone who runs the New York City Department of Education.

This child is lovely. Throw that letter back at them!”

Alex Aviators Coles on May 27, 2014 at 16:21:26

“i never do this but F&F”

MeanMachine on May 25, 2014 at 11:43:12

“Overweight does not equal fat. There are plenty of people who are overweight but not fat. The letter said she was 1 pound overweight. Meaning 1 pound over the average range. Now the issue is that the school system should have set a parent teacher conference to go over the results with parents or mail directly to the parents. Let's face it some kids are obese and fat. But that isn't their fault, it is bad parenting. Simple as that. Stop trying to shelter our kids and start preparing them for the rest of their life, because this is only a drop in the bucket.”

“Nicole Kidman looks and sounds nothing like Grace Kelly, who was one of a kind. She might not have been the most brilliant actress, but she had "something" that worked (see "To Catch a Thief" and "Rear Window," for instance).

I think Nicole Kidman is a fine actress in general, but I can't imagine how on earth she could play this part.

I did enjoy those reviews, though... what is it about vitriolic reviews that are so enjoyable???”

“I look at some of these women and wonder - with all the money they have for stylists, WHY do they end up looking like this????

Lena Dunham's dress is cute, but she's too short for that length. Lupita N'yongo is stunning - and I think she was going for a sort of 1920's look - but this just isn't working. (Even the most fashionable women can have an off day.)

And Katie Holmes... "Belle" from "Beauty in the Beast" after being caught in the rain. As for Woodley, Upton, and some of the others, I just don't get it. These are beautiful women - where are all the sane stylists?”
