Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

This so-called debt has been hanging over me for 1.5 years. I was so close to giving in due to the mental and emotional stress, however I continued to be resistant to the tele-service people on the phone and continued to prove my innocence.

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

It's a disgrace. If only they were this challenging to unlawful people who are costing the government big money.
