I signed up for Loan Forgiveness under William D. Ford Affordable ACT once I completed with the company I started getting calls from Equitable Acceptance.
I let them know this was not what I signed up for and was confused as to why I paying them. They said I would have to pay them( rudely) and when I was late they charged a fee and this dropped my credit report.
I was not told that Equitable would be handling my student loans. On top of everything else, I am handling my own student loans by contacting the server. This company is not doing anything for me. I need out. When I speak to this company they can’t give me any information. Help me. I don’t make a lot of money and can’t afford to give what I have away. Initially I was told in the event that I could not make payments on time. I would be dropped from the program. This is not a program.
Consumer Action Taken:
I contacted Equitable Acceptance to cancel but they told me I can’t. I let them know that I was not told nor is there anything in writing stating I would have to pay them.
