Can Amsure Take Money Out of Pay
by: Mary

Thanks for submitting your debt collection question on our Q&A page.

With a few exceptions, PA law does not allow a collection agency to threaten you with the garnishment of your wages. However, if the debt collector sues you for the money you owe and wins a judgment against you, it COULD take the money in your bank account, including any wages you've been paid that you've deposited there.

If you have been threatened with the garnishment of your wages, I strongly advise you to contact a consumer law attorney in your area with experience in debt collection cases. Find out how to get FREE or low cost legal advice about debt collection from a consumer law attorney here. You may have grounds for legal action against the collector under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.

You should do the same thing if you've been sued by the collector for the money you owe. Bottom line: You need legal advice from an attorney who is knowledgeable about the law in your state and I am not an attorney.

Please share what happens with your situation in the comments section for this question. We are very interested in hearing how this turns out for you, and your experience can help others who are struggling with debt collectors.
