Very stressful as I am already struggling on my current income.

There’s not a chance this debt could be accurate.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

It feels corrupt, deceptive and impossible to fight but I won’t give up because it is so wrong.

I feel terrible for those people whose mental health or intellectual disabilities prevent them from fighting this and who get put on a ‘payment plan’ - ongoing robbery.
