Can I have two judgments for the same account placed against me?
I was living in TN five years ago and had a judgment placed against me there. I moved to NY and did not hear from the creditor, but they have been checking my credit report nearly everymonth for the last year. I contacted the creditor to attempt a settlement, but they told me I would have to wait for them to contact me once they computed ''how much I owe.'' Can they put a second judgment against me if I have already have an open judgment? How much interest do I have to pay?
