Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I am having extreme difficulty contacting my student loan collector Navient. On XX/XX/XXXX at XXXX I attempted to contact the Federal Loan department of Navient, and after getting their automated system to understand that I need to talk to a real person I was transferred to another automated message saying that their offices were closed. This runs counter to their ” contact us ” information provided online as well as in the automated message that I was transferred to, with both sources of information saying their Federal Loan department was open till XXXX on Fridays. After this I attempted to call another number, and got through to the Private Loan office. The woman I talked to said she could transfer me to the Federal Loan department, but after the ” transfer ” I was met with another automated message and a dropped call. I am still trying to contact Navient, but not much is helping.
