Over the weekend we were served with a wage garnishment , but the money was already taken out of our bank account in February . This is the same court case number and amount that was already deducted in the February withdrawal. We never received a garnishment letter from the withdrawal in February... Read more »
Unless the earlier garnishment was insufficient to repay all of the debt underpinning it, I cannot think of a reason why the garnishment has re-appeared. If you want to get rid of it--temporarily--close the bank account; and do not open another account at the same bank.
I recieved a business card from a repo company PI. Not only did i recieve it at my house but it got addressed to me and sent to my boyfriends house as well. I never put his address on any documents what so ever. The only place i have his address is my phone and my car GPS. I never put his address... Read more »
In these days of very advanced high-tech electronic systems and devices there is no doubt that smart investigators, private or otherwise can track anyone, anywhere at anytime--without stopping for coffee. There is nothing legal that you or I can do about it either. Welcome to America, circa 2019.
I got scammed for concert tickets. I sent the money through Zelle. My bank launched an investigation and it took them 2 weeks to find the person who did it. They told me they have the persons name but cannot give it to me without a subpoena. I tried to go to small claims but they said to even get... Read more »
We found an error on our escrow account analysis in January. When asked Flagstar about it, we got the run around, saying it was our fault. Back before October we got a letter stating it was time to renew home owners insurance. So we called, and we had to get the insurance company to fax Flagstar... Read more »
Yes. Why? Because you are the only person who has (or had) the $901.70. Surely you do not expect any bank on this planet to eat money just because you accepted a fraudulent check? No; they are making you eat your own money.
Hello. In 2018 a deceased family member's home was destroyed by Category 5 Hurricane Michael while still in probate. We had been keeping up with all payments on the estate, until we were told by Wells Fargo that they would no longer accept payments. We have had a case open since October 2018, which... Read more »
Having the probate papers will not stop Wells Fargo Bank--unless you can convince the probate judge to take jurisdiction in order to preserve the assets of the estate. This strategy will require someone with proper credentials to appraise the storm damaged property high enough to be able to sell it...Read more »
Lawyers are very intelligent and highly trained--but we are not soothsayers; nor do we do crystal balls. Therefore, I am constrained by a fundamental law of the universe and unable to opine on your current dilemma.
I went to a hotel, to get a room that costs $60 per night. The hotel has a policy that there is only 15 minutes within paying to either change rooms, or ask for a refund, and makes people sign a paper stating this, and does not let people look at the rooms first before deciding to pay. In my case,... Read more »
Wow. It's too bad you did not anticipate any problem when this (very cheap) hotel made you sign an agreement not to complain about their cheap rooms unless you do it immediately. In any event, there is nothing you can do to force your bank to give you the $60 that the hotel kept. Why not consider...Read more »
FYI: All banks in Pennsylvania--and all other states--are very highly regulated; banks do not just keep someone's SSI deposit without very good reason--like to cover an overdraft. If you are still unhappy, contact the appropriate state or federal regulator supervising your bank.
I have a name and offer contract. I was contacted by phone and approved before I received the "offer contract". Questions arise due to the payment amount stated does not compute correctly with the stated interest rate and months of loan agreement, also they are asking for a "collateral payment" of...

She never listed the account in probate court and never helped get the account reopened it's been closed now for 2 years now and my grandfather can't get Access to... Read more »
Unless someone does something before your grandfather passes Banco Popular will win. If they have not been doing it already, Banco Popular will start service charging the account each month, draining off as much money as possible before the government of Puerto Rico requires them to turn over...Read more »
I was talking to a guy. He paid my credit card off. Then asked me to get him 350 dollars worth of gift cards to pay him back. I thought it was a scam and called then bank to have my account frozen and asked to have the payment sent back. But they guy is claiming that he can have me arrested
I am not licensed to practice law in Texas but I do know banking law very well. People who have their bank stop payment on something without any cause are considered in the same category as people who write bad checks.
If "the guy" who paid off your credit card did so using a valid check,...Read more »
If it helps to know it, you are only one of many thousands of Americans who have collectively lost billions of dollars to international fraud stings in the past few years. And I am sure the London police also told you there was nothing they could do about it; right? They were not lying.
I got a letter saying I was approved for a $60000 home equity loan. The next day I was called and told that they were wrong and it was only $40000. The next day I received a letter that stated I was approved for the amount of $60000 signed by a loan officer. I was later informed they wrongfully... Read more »
I didn't have time for asking for the finding out more about some sort of account that I was beneficiary or some kind of account from a will. I didn't get the information about account number or any info about this account, just told on phone call to the banks 1800number, then I went to the bank... Read more »
The bizarre story has all the markings of a scam in the making. Why? Because reputable banks do not just call people on the phone to discuss their bank accounts--especially if the person called has no idea they had the "accounts."
