  1. All I need to know if the mississippi state tax commission is held to any debt practice laws.

    • Good luck on that I went round and round about money they said I owed . Then they froze my bank account and garnished my paycheck…get an attorney I couldn’t afford one but maybe you can .

  2. how to respond to a garnishment and what are the statute of limitations.
    Its from a credit card open around 2000 and has been off my credit for a number of years

  3. More than 5 years ago hot waterheater caught fire in rental apartment. Was taken to ER. by ambulance. Had full medical coverage. Have not had any communication, in writing, to validate debt claimed.

  4. collection agency called to discuss payment medical bills with me, during the conversation they ask about a family member if I know of him because his last name is the same. Does that falls under the privacy law. They were talking with me concerning my debt.

    • They are allowed to verify your family member’s whereabouts and/or employment, but may not discuss a relative’s debt with you.

  5. I recieved a letter from a debt collector that is in another state. The letter said they are collecting on some debt from service rendered in MS from 4 years ago. I know nothing about the services that were rendered and they wont give me proof of it. Am I bound by MS Law to give them money?
