in 1997 I was in college in MA and signed a promissory note for about 3000$. I was poor and not able to pay off that loan as I left the college after they did not offer full finananical aid. somehow over the years they calculated those 3000 to have reached 28000. I never signed any additional documents. They were never able to get in touch with me but the debt has been sold over and over again as I had to ask in writing several credit collectors to stop harassing me since the debt was over SOL. now i live in FL and a few months ago I received a phone call into my voice mail from yet another new debt collector. I ignored it. This week they sent a person who seems to be a process server to my door. He has been relentlessly knocking on my door and windows.I was in shower once and he came up to my window, I asked what was the issue and he said he is looking for a missing girl and if I could come out the door. I am not sure what to do. It has been almost 15 years since the original date of the promissory note to (a private) college. Should I open the door and take the papers or what can I do? I need an advice since I am in real distress. Thank you. I appreciate your help, anyone:) early Happy Thanksgiving!:)

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.
