Just remind her that she has to-by law- send you verification of your debt. Maybe ask to talk to supervisor.My second advice is this. Get a second job. I hemmed and hawed over being broke, then finally I bit the bullet and took on a second job. I've been doing it for two months. Results? I have paid off almost $2000 of debt in TWO months. You have to make more money. It's not a choice at this point. You simply must.I know it probably isn't what you wanted to hear, sorry.P.S- It's amazing how understanding my 10 year old son has been about my extended work days- especially when I have money for him to attend basketball camp, and other things.... think about it.
