So 7 years ago when I was 18, Childrens Aid Society told me they were applying me for grants and bursaries and that I would need to sign some papers to be eligible. 7 years later I am getting something in the mail telling me that my OSAP account is going to the department of justice and that if I don't pay them $8000 within the next 15 days that my wages will be garnished. They have contacted me a few times before then and every time I have told them I don't know what they are talking about and that they would need to contact the CAS about it. Should I just continue to ignore this? I feel like I am in real trouble here and I don't have a clue what to do about it. 

 

I also got a letter 2 days ago thanking me for my payment of $601 when I never sent them anything. Is this their strategy to try and have the debt acknowledged to refresh the statute of limitations?

I think the first step is to visit Children's Ministry and get copies of what you signed.  They may have filled out student loan documents for you that you signed?

Student Loans wont really help unless you escalate the situation, but I think your best bet is to contact the CAS and find out what the documents were and what your obligations were and what their obligations are.

If you do have loans and don't have money to pay you should be applying for RAP.
