We live in West Virginia. My father is a 50 something, terminally ill, handicapped man that loaned a lady $5,000 in check form over a year ago. She hasn't attempted to pay so he went through the Magistrate to collect from her paycheck. She since filed bankruptcy. He called the banruptcy court and found out when her first hearing would be held and also at that time discovered his name was NOT on her list. So, does this mean he can still collect all the money he is owed or does he need to show up at the hearing and ask that his name be added for consideration of payment? I feel she scammed him!!! She took advantage of him -- Isn't this fraudulent?? We also found out she has a criminal record for embezelling money from a previous employer which was over $1,000. She was convicted in court so will this be relevant and apply to this case??
