This is the link to my original thread:

Today, at work (I work in an office), I received a letter addressed to my employer from Javitch, Block & Rothbone, it says to the payroll department. It has to be about me! I just received a judgment from the court to vacate the original default judgment, and am in the process of answering the original claim. What in God's name is going on! I am panicking right now because I can NOT open this, yet I know it's about me. This is so humiliating, all I need is for my employer to know how many financial problems I am having right now. What should I do?? :(




I feel like rolling over and playing dead. I'm becoming overwhelmed dealing with all these problems. :(

[Wulf here...]

Wonder why you received the letter, if it's addressed to Payroll Dept? Is that your function?

If you've gotten the judgement vacated, they don't have a leg to stand on with it. If this turns out to be a garnishment or some such based on that vacated judgement, they've just opened themselves up to the mother of all lawsuits! FWIW, if that's what it is, you may well also have cause of action against them for third party disclosure, among other things.

Don't sweat your employer finding out that you may owe money. You likely aren't the only employee there who does.

I'll be back on later, when I've got more time. Hold it together, bud!

My stomach is in knots right now Wulf. Why would they be sending a letter to my employer when everything is still pending? And addressed specifically to the payroll department. :shock:

Is it possible that the letter was sent prior to your vacate ruling? Please let us know when you do know its content!

It's postmarked March 26th, the ruling was on March 21st. But yes, I will let you know when I find out. Even still, if it's a garnishment I would think it would have been sent Certified mail (the last one was). Maybe they are trying to get information about my income?

You would have supoenaed for wage and asset verification prior to a garnishment being ordered. Just keep your vacate order handy just in case you need to show it to your employer! It sounds like they may be trying an underhanded trick! If so sue the pants off them!

Sounds like they may be trying to use a copy of the original judgment to push a garnishment through (even though it has be vacated and is void) you may very well have a nice lawsuit in your pocket thanks to them. Keep us updated and we'll do whatever we can to help you out.

Could it be that this really has nothing to do with you but another employee? Wouldn't that be great....for you not the other employee :wink:
