Hello! I got a call from a Debt Collector about a company in Germany called AMVI that says we owe them money. I have been out or Germany for 4 years and is wondering if any of you have heard of AMVI? I have searched Google and cant find anything on them. Also my wife told me that any debts in Germany older than 2 years falls off and isn't tried to be collected anymore? Is that true?
I have issued a Vollstreckungsbescheid against a former vermieter who has failed to return my deposit to me.
My question is what will the court do from this point forward in order to return those funds to me?
The matter may be complicated by the following:
1.) the vermieter (or the renter of the property) is not the actual owner of the property
2.) he is an artist and may be hiding his money in cash
3.) he still collects rent from other tenants in order to pay the owner
Depending on the answers here I think I may never actually see my deposit again.
This vermieter has also failed to pay back 2 other previous renters.
In the event that civil action proves fruitless could i move forward to push criminal charges?
The amount owed to me alone is 1800 eur - combined with the amounts owed to others it is likely over 3000 eur
ps - does the Vollstreckungsbescheid have an expiry date or would it stay in effect until i get paid? As in...at some point in the future he will have funds and at that point I could have them seized?
