I recently found out my boss put my name on her LLC as a Manager when lfiling for the corporation. I was not aware of this. We recently found she was involved in fax blasting to market which is illegal in most states. She got sued by a lawyer who received two of her faxes for 3100 dollars. Her name was not listed on the LLC filing to obvoisly, protect her name. Instead, she listed an Agent of service, another company member and me as a manager. I was not aware of this. Becasue she was not listed the agent of process got served and the company had a judgement against it. but the agent was dismissed for payment. Later on, I got served ("the manager") paper saying I had to go in for examination to provide information to the creditor for payment for money that is owed and that the judgement was against me. Along with the notice to go to court I was given a SC-133 form to give the judgement creditor my information to garnish wages, property, ect. My boss told me that doent apply to me, I am just an employee and I just need to go to court and show my ID so they know Im just an employee. The judgement creditor told me that I was listed as a managing member so I was legally responsible. He said that if I did not cooperate He could have the judge seize my purse to get personal info and that I had to give my bank info, other property and social security. I told him I was not the owner and he realized that I may have been involved in fraudulant activity. He asked the judge to give me another court date to find the owners info or address I could get off the hook. Unfortunatly, I work from home and have only met my boss a few times and dont know her address.. .
What I want to know is am I really legally responsible becasue she listed me as a Manager on the LLC filings? Why is the Agent not responsible? Why did I receive a judgement withought a hearing? Will this affect my credit even if I get my boss to pay it off in full? If my boss pays it, do I still need to go to the next court date the creditor set? What other things has my (ex-boss) got me into and what I can do?
