I had a judgement placed against me for $1,7715.61 and have paid in full. The company sent me a letter saying that I owe more than the state said that i have to pay. Can I sue since i'm pretty sure that's illegal.
Not sure what you want to sue about? Did you pay more? Have they made threats if you do not pay more? You may want to just report the company.
I am not certain that I understand your question. If the debt has been paid, you should file a motion to force the creditor to file a satisfaction of judgment. You may be able to sue if you can show that you suffered harm, such as not getting access to credit or high interest rates.
Have you paid the interest that runs on judgments according to statute as well? If not, you haven't paid in full. You'll likely need to bring the question back to the court that rendered the original judgment before considering a separate lawsuit. Good luck.

Go locate a consumer lawyer in your state, get them a copy of the letter, and ask them to take a look at it. I agree with the other lawyers; there are a few different factors (like the interest that accrues on the judgment) that you need to consider. You should be able to get a lawyer to look at it for no-charge for you.
