Check if the SOL is over. What state do you live in?
I know you're worried about your mom. This much is evident from your post. Can you please tell me what state are you in? 4 Years is a long time. Even if the debt is a genuine one, the SOL period is most likely over. They can't take her property just like that. It's a scare tactic. They can only impose a lien on her property, and that is only possible if they win judgment against your mom from the court. They can't touch her SSI. Okay. Much depends on what these papers are.
How much are they claiming by the way? Is this debt valid or fraud?
