Consumer Complaint: I have a school loan with a company out of Kansas that was called Educational Computer Systems Inc. or ECSI, now they are known as Heartland ECSI. My current balance is XXXX. The last statement I received from them is a bill stating that I am 30 days past due. Which came as a surprise to me, because I am supposed to be ” in-school ” status. I am currently attending The XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX online. I did have to drop from full time status for one semester because of the class schedule they have worked out for me. I have tried to get in contact with ECSI once I realized this and for the past week on the XX/XX/XXXX, XX/XX/XXXX, XX/XX/XXXX and XX/XX/XXXX, to no avail. I have tried by phone, by chat and by their site. Apparently their site is down. I can understand the site being down, but what about the phones? Ive put my number on their list to call back three times, … nothing. I was on hold for over an hour on the XX/XX/XXXX too. I ca n’t help but think that they are n’t doing every thing that they can to keep in contact with their borrowers.
