I Want My Money Back
A law firm acting as a collection agent for the Bank of America recently seized approx $2400 from my checking and savings account for a debt well over 15 years old that was discharged in bankruptcy. What legal forms would I fill out to start legal proceedings to get my money back and in which court would I file. I live in the Bronx. the law firm is located in Nassau County. Bank of America is headquartered in California. The law diem claims that a judgment was rendered in Bronx county Court enabling them to do this. I do not recall ever being served and I surely was never in court. Thank You

i want my money back
If you have good documentation to back upyour claim you have a good civil litigation case.
You can file to get your money back and for other damages in Civil Court or if you wishyou can start a Supreme Court Action if your damages are great enough.
There is a possiblity to proceed in a contemptaction in bankruptcy court.
You should also review the New York State and Federal Consumer Debt and Collection Laws.
