Yesterday I logged into my bank account and to his horror discovered that he had a negative balance of 5800. I had no idea what happened. I called the bank and all they could tell us that there was a tax levy or garnishment applied to the accounts and gave us a phone number for the law firm Pressler and Pressler in New Jersey (973) 753-5121.

I never received any notification from them that they were sueing or anything. Nothing certified in writing, absolutely nothing! It's not even on my credit report or anything. I called them on Jan 24, 2009 to find out what was going on. They said it was a debt from ATT from about 8or 9 years ago. They said they served me a court suppena in 2006 at some address in New York and my physical description was 160 lbs with brown hair. Now the funny part is I have lived in Florida since Aug 2005 and am 330 lbs with balding no hair. I have never been 160 lbs!!! I asked if they had any certified letter return receipts with my signature, they have none. So I was never served any documents and never received any letters. How can they do this??? It is not legal. I want proof from them that they contacted me or served me, which they can not provide and will not provide. How can they get a judgement against my bank accounts with out ever sending me a notification, certified letter or suppeona in person??? Is there a way to go after them for faulty practice. They took my child support, my rent, everything...with no notification at all! My account is all screwed up now and frozen.

I understand the Attorney General of NJ has already started an investigation against them, I hope she succeeds.

Any lawyer looking to take a class action lawsuit against these filth of humanity will have a ton of people to represent and I hope they win big. Please contact me if you need me to be added to the pile. I want JUSTICE!!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

File a Bar Association complaint immediately!!

AUTHOR: Steve - (U.S.A.)

File a complaint with your State Bar Association for the UNETHICAL practice of law.

They knowingly engaged in FRAUD here becaues they are lawyers and know the law.

They know that in a civil matter a garnishment cannot be legally obtained without first suing and obtaining a civil judgement.

I would also seek criminal charges for GRAND LARCENY. Go visit your State Attorney's office and also file a police report for the THEFT.

Stay off the phone! Do everything in writing! Hold them accountable.

Good luck!!

You need to go to go to court and file an Order to Show Cause immediately


If you have not already done so, you need to go to civil court for your county and (1) Get a copy of the judgement against you and (2) File an Order to Show Cause. Bring along any communication from your banks with regard to the levy against your account(s). This may help to expedite your case. You deserve a chance to be heard in court.

Do not let Pressler & Pressler get away with this.. not for $5800, not for $5.00.. hell not for 50 cents!!! They are the worse form of scum on the planet and hire unethical, overly aggressive, easily corruptable morons to do their dirty work for them! Bottomfeeder is too nice a term for them. As you have had dealings with them on the telephone I am sure you are already aware of their fake scare tactics and threats. You need to become more educated than they are (which, lets be honest, isn't that hard a chore. In some cases, completing the 6th grade would suffice).

In your Order to Show Cause explain how you were *NEVER* served the Summons (P&P is NOTORIOUS for Sewer Service) and that you have never heard of this debt. Do NOT communicate directly with P&P again until your day in court. Admit NOTHING to them, give them NO MORE PERSONAL INFORMATION as these dreggs of society will simply find a way to use that information against you. Do not sign anything and do not send them a dime. Once you do, you reset the Statue of Limitiations and give them further fuel to use against you.

Once you have file for an Order to Show Cause and it has been granted, you will need to either certify mail or overnight mail it to the leaches at their NJ address (always return receipt requested). The court will explain in detail how to do this. Civil Court is basically Peoples Court. You do not need a lawyer to request a copy of the judgement against you and you do not need a lawyer to file a Order to Show Cause. Trust me I've done it in NYC. I was nervous as I had never done this before and was worried "what if I mess up?" But the civil courts generaly have free counsel with a "Pro Se" attorney who you can sit with, explain your situation to, present your documents and they will tell you step by step what you need to do, what to file, how to file, where to file. In NYC it didn't cost me anything for either getting a copy of the judgement that was sewer-served nor the Order to Show Cause. I am not sure in FL though so you have to find out.

Once you get the Order to Show Cause you can force the charm-school-dropouts at Pressler and Pressler to show proof of debt. This includes SIGNED DOCUMENTATION OR CONTRACTS by you, date of last payment, etc. Do a search on here for "Pressler & Pressler" and read the comments there is a lot of HELPFUL information here.

Also make sure to read: http://www.geocities.com/presslerclub/

So please, for your sake, make sure you get yourself down to civil court and get a copy of the judgement against you TODAY! SPEAK with a Pro Se attorney (they generally work for the courts so they have years of experience and know these bottomfeeders and their tactics by name), and let them guide you step by step to filing the Order to Show Cause. There is a good chance it will be Granted by a judge. Remember to bring your bank communications about the levy on your accounts as proof that the lowlifes of Pressler & Pressler did infact place this levy against your accounts. The Judge will generally set your court date to the ealiest possible date (for me it was less than 10 days). If Granted, IMMEDIATELY call your bank(s) and get the fax number for their legal department and fax a copy of the Order to them and demand they release the levy so you can gain access to YOUR money again. Also, if granted, do NOT under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE communicate directly with the maggots at Pressler and Presslers evil empire until you have had your day in court. Make the trained monkeys of Pressler & Pressler PROVE IN COURT that you owe this debt and that THEY (or whomever they claim to represent) are the LEGAL OWNERS of said debt (both by SIGNED ORIGINAL CONTRACTS), and that said debt is NOT past "Statute of Limitations". They are the plantiffs, the burden of proof is ON THEM to PROVE first and foremost... which in most cases they cannot.
