  • So the creditor took you to court, did you show up to discuss options? Your bank recieves a court order and they have no choice. The bank wants you to stay a customer though they can't mess with the law. Sorry.

  • They can't legally take money from your bank account without either your permission or a court order. So you better look into what's going on here.

  • It's the IRS ladies, they don't need a court order.

  • Have you phoned your bank? It may be a scam...
