I have carefully reviewed your post. However, I did not see a specific question. What is your specific question?

Was this a government loan such as subsidized or unsubsidized Stafford Loan?

A levy cannot be put on your bank account without a Court Order if this is not a government loan.

Have you checked to see if a lawsuit was filed, but you did not respond to it?

It is just weird that after staying dormant all these years that your bank account would now be seized.

Kindly explain a little more.

Thank you for your cooperation.

I do not know if it was a government loan. I received papers after the fact. Was in a envelope with no info I almost threw away I thought was junk mail.
Consumer Protection Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 3 months ago

Thank you for information.

Well, in order to figure out if the levy is proper, you need to get more information regarding the loan. It makes a difference whether the loan is a private or government loan.

What is your specific question?
