Back in 2017 I went to court and had a judgment vacated by the judge over alleged unpaid tuition at a school name Taylor Business Institute in NYC that was shut down by the State Department of Education. I complied with all the request given to me by the court and to my surprise, just before Christmas, I received a notice from the Marshal's office threatening to garnish my wages and a letter from my bank stating that the same debt buyer is trying to obtain access to my finances. Today, I got home and found a letter from my credit card company with an attached Subpoena Duces Tecum.
The interesting thing is that the subpoena from 2017 and most recent are signed by two lawyers with only phone number and email address of the debt collector.
What can I do to make this go away once and for all? This guy sounds super shady and seems like a fraud. Is what he's doing constitute as harassment?
Debt to consult with a debt collection attorney in your area. Have them draft a Cease & Desist letter to the collection agency.
If my answer is "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL" please acknowledge and mark it so. I appreciate your comments and feedback. I have more than 25 years of successful legal experience with cases like yours. My response is often general in nature because all facts are unknown to me. Specific answers require knowledge of all the relevant facts of your case.
If there is an entered judgment, it is not harassment they are trying to collect it. You may need to bring another order to show cause.
What happened when the judgment was vacated in 2017? Just because a judgment is vacated, that usually does not end the case unless the judge threw the entire case out.
