My wages had already been garnished for several months when the debt collector and I agreed to settle. I sent them a check for the full amount of the settlement and I received a letter saying my debt was paid. It's been two weeks and my wages are still being garnished. I don't understand why they keep garnishing my paycheck when we agreed to settle and I paid the amount! I am calling them tomorrow, but is there anything else I can do?
I called last week and inquired as to why the garnishment was still in effect. They told me they had sent the necessary paper work to the sheriff's office and would send a check for the amount of money my paycheck was garnished for. I have not received the check, and my paycheck was also garnished this week. I'm really frustrated by this.Thank you for your response, but I now have some more troubles... I called them and said they were backlogged due to paperwork and my garnishment was being processed and the paperwork was being sent to my payroll department, it was sent on February 24th. I figured this meant that my next paycheck was not going to be garnished. My paycheck for this week was garnished as well! i am very frustrated by this since in our settlement it stated the garnishment would be settled on February 12th and the account cleared. is there anything i can do? I feel like I've held up my part of the agreement and they haven't. I feel like this is taking longer than it should. Should I contact an attorney?
