Consumer Complaint: For years my student loan payments were on automatic draft from my bank account. Suddenly they were n’t able to draft the money eventhough none of my information changed. I contacted them to see if maybe a digit was off, I aslo went in to my bank where I was informed there had been no attempts to draft any funds from my account. After going through this for several months and late fees and NSF fees that were never returned I changed the method of payment. Still my phone continued to ring month after month and my co-borrower was being contacted eventhough the payments had been made up-to-date. To make matters worse they also charge to make a payment over the phone which after much complaining from me was waived. Company : Navient/ XXXX XXXX
