Guyton, GA asked in Civil Rights, Consumer Law, Collections and Small Claims for Georgia

Q: I paid off my civil judgment in full in 08/29/2022 through wire transfer. Today I called & was told payment was rejected

I called today as I still have not received any payment confirmation, court documentation, such as satisfaction of judgement, etc. and was trying to figure out why. The day payment was made I was told by this company my wire transfer was successful and applied to account.

Today though, They told me my balance was $0 & paid in full but after asking my question about judgement release form they claimed my wire transfer was rejected so the account couldn’t be closed & gave no explanation as to why. I have confirmation from my bank where this transaction was successfully completed and taken from my account. As previously mentioned, this was through a wire transfer not check and sent to the right account per my banks receipt.

They also refuse to send any previous payment history to me bc I believe they charged me way more than the judgement amount or didn’t apply payments I made that I do have proof of making. Should I move forward in hiring an attorney over these issues?
