How can I confirm that a supposed creditor is legitimate and not a scam? Posted on July 12, 2011

I went to a college in 2006, and I had to drop out due to monetary and transportation reasons. I understand that I have to pay back the loans that I took out to go for what I did go, but starting last year I've started receiving phone calls from a Company called AvanteUSA saying that I owe them $1000 from things that the student loans didn't cover. I'm suspicious because I heard nothing about it until last year, about 5 years after I stopped going. Is this something that could be real or just a scam?
