My check was garnished and it isn't my debt?
(Lakeville, MN )
My paycheck was garnished for a debt of someone with the same name as mine. I had no knowledge of any unpaid debt nor was I ever notified of the debt. $530 was taken from my paycheck. I called our payroll person and she said she should have caught the error because the address for the debtor was different than mine. Upon checking, the social security number was different as well.
What can I do to get my money returned to me? Is there anything else I should do to prevent more garnishments against me tht are not my debts?
