I am a South Carolina residence who purchased a vehicle when residing in Virginia back in 1999. Due to engine failure & inability to pay car note and repairs, the vehicle was repossessed within a year. The finance company was awarded a judgement for the balance after the car was sold at auction. Since 2000, I have been under wage garnishments from this finance company that seem to increase in the amount owed rather than decrease. The balance now exceeds the original amount of the judgment by over $3000 and almost meets the original amount financed. Is there a limit to how long this can be pursued and do I have any avenues to prevent this company from running me into bankruptcy?
