Asked in Collections and Consumer Law for Colorado

Q: Is legal for a garnishment company to share my information with other collection agents they work with?

I had my wages garnished over a medical bills from 18 months ago. After I paid the debt off I found I was being garnished again over a car loan from 2005. I have a feeling the garnishment company alerted these people as the loan was very old and had dropped off my credit bureau.

I had NO warning that this was going to happen and when I asked about being served and a court hearing ..I was told my daughter was served back in 2008. They are taking 700.00 a doesn't seem like all of this is legal

A: You should contact a lawyer. Some information can be shared; sometime debt collectors simply review recent court filings (open to the public).
