Consumer Complaint: On XXXX of XXXX, I called to get my monthly payments lowered. No help waited on hold for 45 minutes to be told to go online and try to select an option. She stated on her end that she could n’t lower it if I did n’t apply for IBR. So I did what I was told. Never heard anything back so now its XXXX XXXX and I get an automated call telling me I was denied. I need to start paying XXXX by XXXX XXXX, XXXX I ca n’t afford that. So I called again this time waited on hold for 1 hour. Explain my situation and everything. She basically told me there was noting she can do I need to pay by the due date and hung up in my face. So unprofessional and rude.
