I have been receiving calls from a guy stating that I owe the University of Akron tuition of $9,000 because of failing to drop my classes properly and not withdrawing from the college correctly.
I was 17 years old at the time (Fall of 2001) and thought all I had to do was clean out my portion of the dorm, advise all of my roommates that I wasn't coming back after Halloween, and just leave the campus. Also, I was failing a couple classes and was told that we were automatically kicked out of the school if we finished the 1st semester with failing grades, which I did.
Now, it's 2009 and I'm getting calls from a guy stating that unless this is repayed by putting down 10% now ($900 of which I don't have, I only bring home 1342 a month after taxes), I will be garnished my wages and my federal income tax return as well!
Is this true? Can my wages be garnished because of an unpaid school tuition? Not a federal student loan, but tuition fees. Can somebody help me please......

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
