Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Have you considered filing for bankruptcy to eliminate this debt (since in a bankruptcy the same exempt property you claimed would still be considered exempt)?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
