Can a debt collector garnish wages if they are not the original creditor?

Yes. If they sue the debtor and win a judgment the creditor or

collector can execute the judgment in accordance with the laws of

the debtor's state. Texas, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and North

Carolina are the only US states that do not allow wage garnishment

for creditor debt.
