Um...

So the money I've been saving up for the trip is gone.

I just called my bank, and they've wiped everything out.  Even though I'm already getting my wages garnished at work, they took everything out of my bank.

The stickler is, I share this account with my girlfriend.  Last I checked, her wages can't be touched because of my support, but if it's a mutually shared bank account, they can take it all.

I guess I won't be visiting my boys after all.  Shit.
Please Share it! :)

....they can just take your money like that?

i'm sorry, man :( I'm sure you'll be able to see them soon enough

I don't understand, how can they just take your money?

Astronomy Pirate said...

Wait what? How did they just take all your money? I think it vaguely suggests that your money was taken out to pay for child support or something?

Annabelle said...

Damn that sucks. I know what it's like to think you've got what you need on thee bank, only to have it disappear beyond your control.

I know telling them will be hard.

feeling for you

Al Penwasser said...

Yeah, what ironchefman said...how can they do that?

Bank told me that Child Support put a levee on my bank account, and they took all my money.

The papers they sent into my work, so they could garnish my wages, said they can take 50% of my income or $1000 a month, whatever is less. They took half my paycheck, and I deposited the rest yesterday.

Today, they took the rest of my paycheck, plus my girlfriend's paycheck as well. Her an I have a joint account. She's not responsible for my support payments, but they wiped her clean as well.

And I can't call to complain until Monday. So I'm ill, and stuck like this all weekend.

So sorry to hear about that man...

Well that blows chunks.

Heather (aka Sugar Free) said...

Oh my shit! I have had that happen to me before; although for different reasons. I know just how it feels to be skipping along, plans in mind, even meek ones, and BAM!! goddamn money has been swiped from you with no warning. Plans all shot to shit. I feel for you. I really do. I hope things get better. And fast.

Lady Estrogen said...

Who the F is taking the money? That's fucked up.

after3 said...

Cant win. dont try. a3

Autumnforest said...

That fucking sucks! I'd suggest you start regularly taking cash out and hiding it so that they can't take everything. That is just so wrong!

Claude said...

Dude that's just stupid, I hope you get it sorted out mate, that sucks.

Leila said...

If you simply analogize that to the situation of American tax payers to the erroneous power of the Federal Reserve, then you can pretty much see that we're all getting fucked without us knowing.

I'm sorry that the system is so corrupt, that everything has a price on it. I'm not complaining about child support, but i AM complaining about the credit system and how it is handled in regards to paying for stuff like child support.

shitty fuck banks

LilPixi said...

Ugh!! That's such BS. I'm so sorry. =(

kitkat said...

huh.. isnt that wrong? u shld sue them!!!

On My Soapbox said...

That SUCKS! I'm not surprised, though.... I would not marry a prior bf because his ex-wife would have taken us to court for more child support. If we would have married, we would have been considered double income. Anyway, you and your gf need to get separate bank accounts.... The banks and child support systems can't tell from a joint account what is your $ and what is hers. They just see $$$$. Don't get me started on how the non-custodial parent gets screwed....

man thats fucked

Byakuya said...

I had a load of money stolen from my bank recently by loan companies (I didn't owe them anything, it was fraud)

It's pathetic how my money would be safer in my bedroom than in the bank.


I've made a new page that makes it easier to navigate my other blogs, take a look sometime:

Alphabeta said...

Surely that's not legal.
Hope you get it sorted.

The Reckmonster said...

The Angry Lurker said...

I don't understand why?

The Angry Lurker said...

Sorry I understand now, that's really wrong.

Thank, Q said...

Aw, man. I'm sorry to hear that. For you and your girlfriend. I realize the support is important, but taking it all like that just doesn't seem right. It'll all work out in the end.
