A marshall said make check payable to him
You might want to consider filing a police report on this, it's sounds very fishy to me. :shock:
You need to file a police report asap it sounds like to me they are trying to strong arm you into paying. No Marshall is going to insist you that you make payments payable to them that is ludicrious on so many levels.
Sounds like a major scam, I agree file complaint and police report!! Wow unreal.
I received letter from the law firm which had consulted the U.S. Marshall person. The law firm stated they can work out a payment. But I still dont have details of what was owed (Credit cards, light bill, etc..).. This really sucks. Don't know if this is really a debt owed by me..
I had a account which did not had couple thousand.. still no detail of what is owed.. Law firm subpoena account now the $1,1372 is gone from the account. No detail of what is owed (i.e.: credit card, light bill, etc.) only a paper with MRC Receivables and my name and SS#
Do you mean that a company called MRC receivables took money from your bank account. I'm pretty sure that they are not legally allowed to do that without a judgment and a court order. Have you been sued by anyone? Do you have any judgments against you?
nytny-1, you really need to talk to your bank manager, the police, and a good attorney about this, in that order.
There was a subpoena, all it had was a court order, my bank's name to comply, my name and social security. I am pissed, because it the order had said for outstanding account from credit card or account ... from utility bill then I understand. I will contact attorney general to ask question. Also the annoying thing is that MRC Receivable address in San Diego is not the correct address, as I try to find out what is this $11K that I am being told that I owe.
I have no idea what the $11k is for or what was actually defaulted which amounted to $11K. no breakdown. I have no idea if this is something from 2001, 1997. I thought the lawyers would be more professional by stating in detail or even providing a photo copy of what is oustanding. What I also fear once the law firm takes this money will my name ever be cleared from the subpoena. Will my name ever be cleared from this MRC Receivables as debtor. alot of unknown.. "shi..."
It sounds very confusing! I would recommend that you follow Unclewulf's advice above. Let us know what you find out! Good luck!
Spoke to secretary at the law, and explained why money is missing from my account(there was a subpoena) All the document they sent over never stated the original creditor. The secretary explained this was a credit card payment, so I advised her to send me the document. I ask that the money from my account I hope it went to payoff part of the debt, she re-assured me that it was the case. A bit more relieve, but I will wait to see the copy of the defaulted credit card statement. I told the secretary it was not very professional as no documentation was sent with detail information of what was defaulted. she kind of replied . "Uh.."
Thanks for all the guidance..
Sorry, but I'm smelling BS here. You need to go to your bank, in person.
Talk to the branch manager.
Tell him you want one of two things:
A copy of the court order levying your account.
- or -
Your money back,. immediately.
I had a Target credit card which defaulted. Cohen and Slamowitz eventually won a judgment against me. I had set up a monthly payment with them. One month was 4 days late, due to the Christmas Holiday. C&S turned it over to the NYC Marshal to collect.
I had to set up a weekly payment plan with the NYC marshal, and it took me a year to pay if off but finally did it. The check was sent directly to the marshal's office, written out to the marshal. They in turn paid C&S. Once paid in full, the NYC Marshal sent C&S a letter stating it was now paid in full, and sent me a copy of this letter. C&S sent me a letter stating the account was paid in full, and my credit report will be updated, which it was.
