Elkhorn, NE asked in Collections for Nebraska

Q: I received 4 different letters from different attorneys saying I was being sued by a debt collection agency

The amount due was $160.00 and I had called the collections agency after the first letter asking if I was still able to pay it. She said yes but it got sent to their attorney and she would find out when I needed to pay it by and the official total amount. Am I really being sued and she just didn’t tell me?
