Consumer Complaint: I called XXXX XXXX on XXXX XXXX, XXXXto get clarification about why my number of payments toward forgiveness was inaccurate ( it is about 6 payments short of the correct number ). The representative stated that the payments I made through my previous servicer had not been transferred over. She stated that she would put in a ticket to have this issue resolved, and that it would be corrected in 30-60 days. 60 days later ( XXXX XXXX, XXXX ), I checked my account and the issue was still not corrected. I spoke with another representative, who stated that it could take up to 90 days and that I should call back in 2 weeks and request it be expedited if it is still not corrected.
