If wages are being garnished from unemployment overpayments what can be done??? My fiance, the soul provider of our family of 5, recently has begun to have his wages garnished for this reason and we cannot survive without his full pay check!!! To make matters worse, he supposedly owes the state of Minnesota for this overpayment 16000.00!!! Yep, 16 THOUSAND dollars!!! Like who in the heck can pay that back!!! I have heard that bankruptcy might not do anything at all because it is a debt owed to the state, does anyone know if that is true? Also I read on this forum that federal taxes can be taken for this sort of debt, I have never heard of federal taxes being taken in Minnesota for any kind of debt but, would love to hear the facts if anyone has them!!!!!! Thanks!!!!!
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.
