The loan company came after my husband and a judgment was filed against him. Although he did not have his own checking account, we have a joint account. (I put him on my account after we married). Unbenounced to me, they went into my checking account seized it and took every penny I had. So yes..this does happen. Be carefull about who you have a joint checking account with, because It happend to me!

Yes, they do. Unfortunately, they will take every penny that is in your account, and they won't tell you before they do it either. All they have to have is a judgement against you. I was falsely informed that if my husband's name was on the account that they couldn't take money from the account, but that wasn't true either. They can garnish any account with your name on it, or with you as a co-signer. The smart thing to do is to take your money from the account and have your pay deposited into an account that doesn't have your name on it...someone you trust like your spouse or parents or child. They can garnish your pay as well, but only 25%.
