More details to this question:
The lien was filed for a debt that was from a wholesale co that was included in the bankruptcy. I also thought that my personal property was protected by the incorporation of the business

Perhaps you signed a personal guaranty of the debt incurred by the coporation.  Also, if the creditor filed suit to obtain a judgment and named you in the suit and you did not answer the suit, that could have resulted in a judgment lien against you personally.  The final option is that they filed the lien improperly.
