Why would a creditor garnish a bank where I don't have an account?

This begs curiosity as to why you would be aware that the creditor attempted to garnish an account where you have no accounts. Prior to serving garnishment of an account, the creditor will need to know that you do have an account or accounts at the bank. This is typically verified by the legal department or a skip tracer. If no account exists, or if there are no funds available to attach, the creditor will be notified, but there is no reason for a bank to notify you if no account exists. If you have no account at a bank, for all intents, you do not exist to the bank.
