    Money taken in a judgment
    Hello my sister opened a credit card from Washington mutual and put me on as an authorized user which I never knew or used the card. On 9/6/2007 they went to our local magistrate and there was a default judgment against my sister first the defendant and then me on another page same cv # but it says judgment against another and my name is there . I never received of this, and I sold my home in 2010 and put extra money in that account well come to find out on 4/15/2010 they took the full amount out of my account $1856.34. Do I have any way to get my money back. If I received a notice I would have went. Please help!!

    Yes, you can sue your sister in small claims court for the amount. At this late date that would be your only choice. I doubt if you can prove that you weren't properly served in 2007. You might have been able to fight it in 2010 on the grounds that you were not a borrower only an authorized user. But almost 4 years later?

    But if you never used the card, then you can sue your sister for what they took from you.

    Thank you
    It is an account that we never ever use I just happen to be moving banks and that is how I found out. It is more of a saving account that was never suppose to be touched till my 3 year old daughter turned 18. If I sue my sister and she has nothing but I do know she is getting 2500.00 from the IRS I would love to seize that to teach her a lesson.

    Please let me know thank you in advance for your help.
    I have never sued anyone just go to the local magistrate and tell them what happened it just happens to be the same magistragte

    You need to use Small Claims court. What you have to present depends on the local court.
