NC License extortion charges

In November of 2008, I went and renewed my drivers license in CA. On December 13th I received a letter from the CA DMV stating my license is suspended in North Carolina, an I had thirty days to get a clearance from that state or my CA driver's license would be suspended. There was a NC contact address and number. This is where the nightmare begins. I contact the NC DMV and was told I had two outstanding issues which needed to be resolved. The first one was that I owed $100 dollars for a ticket from 1986. The second was that I needed to schedule a court appearance or hire a lawyer for a ticket I received in March of 1999 for driving on a suspended license. First the ticket from 1986, I did have a charge in 1986 in Fayetteville NC where I hired a lawyer and was found not guilty. The contact from the NC DMV said I need to contact the Fayetteville court, which I did and was told my case was never resolved, and that even though I was found not guilty I had to pay a $100 dollar revocation fee. 1986 was the last year I have ever been in the state of North Carolina and when I left everything was taken care of. I did no keep records from 22 years ago. So fine, I will pay the $100 dollars. I had to contact the Durham court for the ticket from 1999. I was not in North Carolina in 1999 and I thought it would be simple to clear up, boy was I wrong. Durham court told me I was charge with driving on a suspended NC driver's license, which I never had a NC license. I would have to contact the DMV who referred me to them. I called back the DMV and explained I was never in Durham in my life, let alone 1999, I was working and living in CA since I got out of the military in 1986. They told me my license was linked to the NC license with the same name as mine. For all they know I could have came back and got the ticket. And the only was to clear it was to appear in court or hire an attorney. So now I am faced with spending $$$$ to try and prove the person cited in 1999 was not me. They even gave me a NC license plate number of the car which was stopped. How could their records be so screwed up? Is it by design to rip-off out of people from out of state? How can I resolve this with out spending an arm and leg in these hard economic times?
