NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A Nashville man says it's just not fair.
The state says it began seeking the back support in 2008 after they were contacted by Mayes' ex-wife. Now all of the money paid, including the interest, is going to her.
The state also in its statement to us, said it doesn't matter what he was told by child support collection workers, that what he owes is based solely on the original child support order back in 1987. Yet for the last five years when Mayes maintains child support workers told him he didn't have to pay anything, the interest continued to grow at a rate of 12 percent a year, adding up to thousands of dollars extra in interest.
