Asking for my son.......... can DCS garnish wages without a court judgment? I was told not. His loans are from state universities in Wisconsin and they are substantial (undergrad and masters both). Please advise. He now works and lives in the Twin Cities / MN.
Note: they did threaten to garnish his wages in a recent letter
By signing up a debt counseling session, your provided details (Name, Email ID and Phone No.) will be forwarded to the company advertising on the DebtCC. However, you have no obligation to use their services.
Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
