Cannot afford to pay this debt that I do not owe

Debt amount: 
Date debt issued: 
Wednesday, 8 May 2019
Has your case been referred to a collection agency?: 
Payment Type: 
Youth Allowance
Tell us about your debt and how has this affected you? e.g. anxiety levels, financial and accommodation stress: 

My anxiety levels due to this debt are crazy I am stressing about it all the time. I was waiting on my tax money so I could pay some bills and centrelink took my whole tax refund to pay off some of my debt!!!!!! They didn't even give me a chance to dispute it.

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

It's ridiculous you have good honest people out here being told they have all this money they cannot afford to pay back. I understand that some debts may be legitimate but most certainly not this amount.
