    Wait, slow down...

    You don't owe the debt? Were you contacted prior to the filing of the suit, to give you the opportunity to dispute the debt?

    If you were contacted, did you dispute it in writing? If you did not, why not?

    If you weren't contacted at all, you might be able to get the suit thrown out. Elsewise, the burden is on them to prove that you owe the debt.

    Should they prevail, they may be able to attach any assets you have - place a lien on your house, garnish your bank account, etc.

    One thing to note, should they win...
    check to see if your state disallows them from touching your veteran's benefits. Many states do not allow Veteran's benefits or the deposited benefits (that portion of the bank account) to be garnished.
