Can collection agency take my inheritance?

I received half of my father's estate few months back. The other half went to my brother. I owe around $40,000 on credit cards. The debt is around 4 years old. Actually, I had forgotten about the debt also. Last week, I received a call from a debt collection agency. They threatened me that they will take my inheritance if I don't repay the debt. Can they really do that?
