Out of state judgement--Bank Account Levied

I received a judgement over four years ago in Connecticut for a credit card debt. I moved to Pennsylvania one year ago. My bank account was levied one week ago by the judgement creditor. They drained my two checking accounts and my savings. The debt I owe to them is around $2800. I do not believe that the judgement was transferred from Connecticut to Pennsylvania.The letter that the bank sent me advising me of the levy has a court in Connecticut on it. My question is, weren't they supposed to transfer the judgement to Pennsylvania? Also, I did not receive an intent to levy notice. I have not recieved any communication from this debtor in years. My address was forwarded from Connecticut, yet I've received nothing. I do not believe that they made enough of an attempt to notify me, what can I do? Could this be a valid reason for expemption? Do I have to file a motion to vacate in Connecticut? Or contact my Attorney General?

Any advice would be appreciated.
