Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I tried calling Navient at XXXX about my student loan where the caller keeps getting automated menu responses after a lengthy period of time – there is NOTHING ON THE MENU to connect the caller to a real person. When I finally was able to connect I asked who & where I was talking to the person would not give me their name and said they were from XXXX ( would not give specific country ) ; additional they had difficulty articulating in the English language. I asked multiple times to be connected to the UNITED STATES – each request was denied. I do not trust giving my information to someone overseas and I heavily object they have my information as well as that of other students.
Navient needs to provide, without delay, a phone number that connects the student borrower to an actual person in the United States.
This is highly unacceptable and there should be legislation preventing this from happening.
I DO NOT AUTHORIZE THE ” CONSUMERS FINANCE PROTECTIO BUREAU ” to release my email to Navient whatsoever.
