Announcements 

It has come to the attention of the Trustee's office that a possible scam is being perpetrated on some Chapter 13 debtors.  The Chapter 13 debtor is contacted by telephone by someone who claims to be calling from the Trustee's office.  The person calling demands that the debtor make an immediate payment.

The Trustee's office will NEVER contact a debtor by telephone and demand a payment.  All payments must be made through TFS or be mailed to the Trustee at P.O. Box 190, Memphis, TN  38101-0190.  If this address changes, debtors will be advised in writing and the address change would be posted on this website.

If you receive a suspicious telephone call or email, contact the Trustee's office or your attorney.

Electronic Debtor Payments!

The Trustee now accepts electronic payments through Nationwide TFS.  Nationwide TFS is a third part vendor not affliliated with the Trustee's office.  If debtors elect to make payments utilizing this service, they are entering into an agreement with TFS, not the Trustee's office.  Any fees charged for this service are collected by TFS, not the Trustee's office.  Neither the Trustee nor the Trustee's office shares in any fees paid to Nationwide TFS.
