    First, unless the creditor has statutory authority (tax agency, child support, court order, etc.), it would be extremely unlikely for ANYONE to be able to place a lien against ANY asset of yours.

    So, without a judgment first, this creditor can't do it.

    Second, even though it is possible to place a lien against some state income tax refunds (only a few allow it), it would be uncommon for an individual to do it (usually done by a state agency).

    Bottom line... if this is NOT a government agency AND if a judgment has NOT been rendered, they are lying to you.
