FOLLOW-UP TO YESTERDAYS POST
After endless wrangling on the phone today I was just informed ten minutes ago, to my amazement, that this levy was not from the Alabama Department of Revenue but from a 20-year-old credit card I believed Id paid off long ago. (I certainly havent received any calls or mail from them, let alone notice of a court order.)
This is in direct contradiction of what I was told yesterday and of the printed document they gave me that distinctly says tax levy. (I can provide people with a copy of the document if anyone wants to see it; I dont want anyone thinking that Ive been raising money under false pretenses.) Apparently Wachovia itself had been under the impression that it was a tax levy, and only when I finally got through to the creditors attorney did I find out otherwise.
I realise that many people who donated yesterday or today may have done so solely because they thought my emergency was tax-related. If anyone would like their gifts or loans returned in light of this new information, please let me know and Ill get your money back to you as soon as I can.
Obviously I still need help just as much, whatever the cause, but I dont want to exploit specifically libertarian sentiment to get it.
