There's not a whole lot you can do. If they got a judgment for a garnishment, which your employer has to abide by, unless you work for the federal government, they should no longer be calling you.

Tell them nicely that you know you owe them - send them 5 bucks as a measure of good faith - cut back your expenses, too, like your internet access (ouch).
