Hi. I recently took an expemption on a judgment after having a bank account garnished and frozen. The judge granted my exemption for the full amount sought.

Upon leaving court however, the collectors lawyer said they would keep coming after my assets. Can they really do that? If so can they come right back and seize the same funds from the same bank? I’m wondering if my money will be safer at another bank or safer at the bank where they already garnished me?
I imagine a judge would be upset to see them again on the same matter after having made the ruling ..,


... I should mention, I live in MD, and the amount allowed exempt is up to $6K. I elected to exempt only ~$4k....the amount specifically sought by the collector.

You should have patience. do as you have planned and transfer your money if you want to. They can't just seize the same funds from the same bank.

What the debt collector is illegal. He can't go against the ruling. He is just playing a scare tactic. But to be on a safe side, keep your money in another bank. You should rather tell him that you'll report the matter to the court if they continue to harass you like this.
