So. I’m in credit-card debt, and my bank account was just cleaned out of the $8.87 I had in my checking account and the $1.00 in my savings account by a legal garnishment fee. That was all the money I had in the world. I have no income and no prospects of getting a job during the COVID-19 crisis (I can’t lift more than 5 lbs. in a work situation). This is rather upsetting to me. I already called my bank and found out who did it, and I plan on calling them at 9:00 a.m. when their office opens. I realize I owe money, but geez!
I’m going to call the office at 9:00 am when they open and explain my sitch to them. If I had a job, I’d be okay with them garnishing my wages, but this is not cool.
P.S.: I am NOT selling my house.
UPDATE: Fuck waiting for the next available operator, I remembered I had the collection agency’s lawyer’s email addy. Sent him three emails, one of which pointed out that I was not notified (to my knowledge; if they sent a letter, I didn’t get it) by them (the bank doesn’t have to notify) and they’re supposed to do so. I mean, I had a total of almost $10 in both accounts and they take it all without telling me WHEN.
