I have a letter stating owe debt to MRC Receivables but no details of what those debts are. The Marshall who sent the letter stated to make check payable to him (his name)..

This does not sound correct I have heard of some scam going on.

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..."

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.
