Nine years ago I lived in an apartment newly divorced with my three children. I was on state aid and working. The owner of the apartment complex came to the door and told me that he was raising the rent from $800.00 to $950.00 a Month only giving me 2 weeks notice.
I told him There was no way I could afford that amount in such short notice. He told me to move out and give him 2 weeks rent. I gave him $400.00 and I started to move out. After 2 days I was served a three day notice. I moved out the following day.
He kept my cleaning deposit of $700.00 so that was a total of $1100.00 that the owner had from me.
I thought everything was taken care of.
Now it's 2011 and I have been employed at the same job for 9 years and out of the blue I recieve a court paper saying I owe Seventeen hundred dollars to this collection agency / Law Firm I called them and asked what it was all about they said I needed to pay this money to them. Because I owed money to the owner of the apartments for past rent.
I asked them for proof I owed this money they had no proof. I ask then why was I not informed that there was a case against me. They were so rude threating to garnish my wadges if I did not make arrangements with them to pay.
I called them several times and they just treated me like I was a criminal not letting me speak interrupting me every time I tried to get information from them. I asked them for a proof of service several times or something that they could show me so I could work on this and get to the bottom of it.
They could not provide me with any paperwork showing that I was served or anything saying I was contacted about this matter.
It is very scary to think that anyone could just get a judgement and take money from you without showing any proof of the charges. I don't know how the law works in this matter but after 9 years you would think that they could have contacted me sooner so I could tell my side.
I am sure that the judgement has to be expired by now and they would have had to go back to court and get a new one. If they knew where I worked why didn't they contact me before now? they allow me to protect myself.
2 weeks ago a police officer came to my place of business and served a garnishment against my wadges. I tried to call and ask if I could go to court a fight this and they said it's to late.
I really tried to work with them and it seemed like they just wanted to argue and insist I owed money. I really feel that they forged some of the documents and was pushing for the garnishment because they did't think I would defend myself. Well they are wrong. I have reported them to the State Bar as well.
