I was never contacted about a debt ( that I do not owe ) from the Department of Education. the debt i ‘m told starts from 1994. All of a sudden my wages are being garnished. I had no knowledge of ANY debt owed, and I was not given an opportunity to communicate with anyone to either confirm or deny that I owe anything, but instead the order was sent to my employer. If anything was mailed to me, I never received it. Absence of a response does n’t mean I owe anything. I was never given a chance to defend myself. And now out of the blue, I have to figure out how to pay my rent!!
