Yes. If you were not served then the court had no jurisdiction (authority) to grant a judgment

against you.

You need to file an Order to Show Cause in the same court to vacate the Judgment and get your money back.

I disagree. Once a satisfaction of judgment is filed, there is no action to vacate. In other words, you cannot vacate a judgment that does not exist.
