It sounds like you've not complied with the repayment terms if there have been penalties (and probably interest) applied to your account.  That can certainly add up and result in more payments than what would have been expected if you paid according to the contract.  You should consider having an attorney review your loan agreement, payment history and give you an opinion if there are errors in the amount the lender is telling you is due. 

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
