Complaint Review: Forster and Garbus
Forster and Garbus60 vanderbilt motor parkway commack, New York United States of America
Forster and Garbus Forster and Garbus are the worst type of collection predators commack, New York
*Consumer Comment: You must have signed a "consent judgment"
I couldn't afford a lawyer, so I signed the settlement. Forster and Garbus provided me with no proof of the debt so I could pursue my relative for this money. I paid the 100 every month for 12 months paying a total of $1200. I sent in a payment after the holidays that they said they received after their ten-day grace period. They accepted the payment and sent me a letter saying they filed for a full judgment of $9,000.
I was only late that once because of the holidays. I tried for 2 hours to get in touch with someone at the office. I eventually got someone that said I would have to talk to the supervisor who never called me back. I would have never agreed to a settlement if I knew that they could get a judgment for the full amount plus more. This company has no morals. Under the settlement agreement, I only owe them $2800. Now, they are getting a judgment $9,200. The $1,200 I already paid is not included. I have very little money, I was displaced and out of work for two weeks because of hurricane Sandy. I could barely afford the hundred a month, so now they want to garnish my paycheck for more. I could understand this if the debt belonged to me, but it didn't. I don't know what steps to take from here.
