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

Been ongoing for an entire year now!! Every time I call I speak to someone different, half the conversations I discovered the other day have not even been recorded. I know for a fact I DO NOT owe $8000.
The system is an absolute joke. We are an honest hard working farming family obsessed with doing the right thing and making an honest living yet we are being treated like criminals!!
For the first few weeks after receiving the letter I barely slept, can't even begin to describe the stress this has caused!!

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

The Government of this country is nothing short of disgraceful!!
They've not handled any part of this situation, instead they have brushed the whole fiasco under the carpet, leaving innocent hard working people to attempt to fight their own battles!
