Not very often, because it is usually not worth the hassle. The laws and procedures on this will vary by state, but most states allow you to protect a certain amount of the equity in a vehicle. In theory, the judgment creditor could get a writ and have your car taken and sold and an auction. However, unless there is enough to pay off the card loan and pay you the amount of your equity that the law protects, chances are that the creditor will not proceed with the sale of the vehicle.

A person's wages can not be garnished unless a judgment is obtained in court against that person. People get sued all the time for credit card debt. Once the credit card company gets a judgment, then they can garnish wages.

In this state a credit card judgment can not put a lien on a house. Other answers indicate that in other places it can. You will need to find out about the law in your area.

They go before a judge and explain how the payment for that credit card was not made and what is owed including collection costs. The cost of judgment is then added to the total and that becomes the collectors judgment. That stays on your credit report for a long time so avoid!

No, unless the refund is directly deposited into your bank and the credit card company has a judgment and files a lien on your account. Not legal in many states.

To transfer a credit card balance means to use the available credit on one credit card to pay off the balance of another credit card. This is often done by credit card holders to pay back a balance at a lower rate.

Yes, that is the way a garnishment works. When the credit card company sues you for non-payment of debt, they win a judgment. The judgment can be a garnish on your paycheck or your bank account. It makes no difference who you have a bank account with if they were awarded the garnishment by court.
