[SIZE=3]I recently was informed that my wages were about to be garnished at work. I had no idea why because I never received any paperwork prior.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I went to court to fight the garnishment and found out it was from a credit card my ex-wife had many years ago (At least 10 years).[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I donâ€™t think I was a co-signer on the card and calling the bank gets me no info (Citibank) because they say they sold the account.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I found out it was then sold a second time to yet another credit debit collector and that is the one that has the judgment now.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I believe they must have served someone at an old address but that never made it to me.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I was able to stop the garnishment because I currently pay child support and pay more to support the kids than my ex-wife does.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]So now I have it on my credit report and I want it off. I asked them to fax me the paperwork showing I am on the account and they have yet to do so.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Either way according to the court I donâ€™t have to pay until I no longer have to pay for my kids support (another 15 years!).[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]They offered a settlement of 6k off of the original 12k but I donâ€™t think I owe them a penny.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I would consider paying $500 just to make them get rid of all this since Iâ€™m sure a lawyer will cost me more but I donâ€™t think they will take that little.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Any ideas on what rights I have in this case.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Any help I could get would be greatly appreciated.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]I looked up the law office online and they are a bunch of scumbags that have plenty of cases against them for bullying people for money.[/SIZE]

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the pay off amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
