Collection Attorneys Bishop, White, Marshall & Weibel, P.S. The first contact I had with this firm was around the first of June 2010. They informed my wife and I that we had an outstanding debt owed to Household Finance Corp of appx. $5500 and that they would work with us to resolve the debt if we made a good faith payment of $50, which we did. The second contact we had with them was on June 16th, 2010 when we recieved court papers stating they had obtained a writ of garnishment judgement against us in the amount of $6984.75. Within days we were notified by our bank (Chase) that all funds were seized in the amount of $4,124.90 (2 mortgage payments, childrens savings, etc) My paychecks were then garnished for an average of $550 every two weeks for a total of $2006.92. The next contact we had with them was when we recieved a 2nd writ of garnishment for the amount of $2,649.88 because they mistakenly filed for an incorrect original amount. My paychecks were ((again)) garnished in 2011 for appx $550 per pay period, totaling just over $2,100. On April 20th, 2011 we recieved notice that this firm has ((again)) applied for a writ of garnishment for the amount of $2,797.70. I have repeatedly tried to get an answer to justify these additional charges but always rudely told they they do not have to disclose anything to me. On May 2nd I recieved a notice from this firm (Karla Harris) that I can settle the debt immediately. I called and spoke with ms. Harris who is apparently the account mgr. She said that if I paid her $2,530.54 (which is different than the court judgement of $2,797.70) she could settle this case. When I asked about the funds garnished from my paychecks since 2/11/11 she had no record of any of those monies being applied. Who is monitoring these collection firms!? Why are courts casually signing off on these judgements without any explanation of charges!? This is the true definition of a circle jerk! Obviously I need to get a lawyer, but just wanted to let everyone know who is dealing with this firm that you will NEVER get a straight answer on what you owe and they will bleed you for eveything they can. Do not try to negotiate with them, because they will string you along while the paperwork is being filled out and blindside you with a judgement. They have learned how to use the court system, and no one seems to give a rip!!
