Debt collectors can seize your $1,400 payment; lawmakers plan to stop that

The latest round of stimulus payments that are soon going out are open to being seized by private debt collectors. Recipients with unpaid credit card or medical bills for which a company has obtained a judgment against the debtor could see the amount taken from their bank accounts. Sen. Ron Wyden plans to introduce a fix to this that would shield the payments from garnishment as early this week.

No need to worry about the citizens in the bill. AMERICAN ppl last. Let's give money to other countries, illegal invaders and bail out blue states who will still raise taxes waste the money and be on the verge of bankruptcy.

That should have been in the bill right from the start. Did they learn NOTHING from when the LAST rescue checks got intercepted?

Maybe instead of stimulus they should just... idk, open up? The WHO and the CDC both have said that lockdowns are not effective control methods.

Mixed feelings about this. A debt is a debt and it should be paid. However, perhaps a portion only of the check?

I used my last stimulus toward my debt. If I get this one I'll use it for debt too. I firmly believe if you borrow you need to pay back

It’s good they plan to fix it, but this oversight is incredibly irresponsible.

Sharks with no care for life. They're not even original debtors. They bought thr debt. Cocid relief bill after a shambles economy. These people are predating on this. No thoughts about their country or shame. Only profit for these snakes to get their 30 silver coins.
