Copy

If the main creditor shows as transferred--but paid as agreed prior--leave it alone. It is not hurting your credit. If it shows a past due balance or just a balance still unpd but transferred then by all means call the lender and ask for a letter stating that this is being corrected. Make sure you have the person's name and ext so you can reach them later-- make sure the letter has your name and account number--and is signed or the repositories won't use it. You can send a copy of this letter to all 3 credit repositories (although there are 4 now)-- YOU keep the original for yourself. Don't throw it away as you may find that you will need it later--6 months, or even 2 yrs from now.

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.


Does a creditor have to have a court order for garnish a bank account?

Actually, the court would probably order the bank to pay a certain amount to the creditor from your account rather than give the creditor the right to take money out of your account. A supreme court decision stopped that racket in Arizona.

Can creditor garnish bank account when I am listed as a custodian on my child's account?

Yes. In the event a creditor has secured a judgment against you for a bad debt, that creitor may secure by garnishment any account on which you appear. By legal definition any account on which you appear is your account. It is an old trick, and not very successfully done in past years, for debtors to try to hide their finances behind their children's names. Collections agencies and many creditors now have people on staff called skip tracers who specialize in locating the assets of debtors. If it is out there, they will find it.
