I have been dealing with a debt collection agency that is not giving me any information as to the nature of the debt how much is owed and no contact is made until after they go to court usually in a city I don't live anywhere close to. This company has been garnishing my state taxes for close to 10 years and the debt has not been settled nor have they given me an addition info on what the interest is or where they received the debt from.
You need a consumer protection attorney. If you have been paying regularly for ten years you should be getting regular updates on what is owed. Get an advocate on your side right away. Good Luck,
