Q: what should i do about a false wage garnishment that I have been ignoring for quite some time now?
If you have been ignoring a false wage garnishment for some time now, it is important to take action immediately. The longer you wait, the more difficult it may be to resolve the issue.
Contact the creditor who is trying to garnish your wages. Let them know that the garnishment is false and that you are disputing it. You should also provide them with any documentation you have to support your claim.
