Product: Federal student loan servicing

Issue: Dealing with your lender or servicer

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: My total school debt is $ XXXX ; XXXX with XXXX and one or two semesters with XXXX that was not completed due to medical issues. Later found out I had have a XXXX removed from my XXXX. My loans were deferred and forbearance due to hardships. But, I kept up with my servicer until XXXX XXXX sold my loan to XXXX XXXX. My loans were consolidated under XXXX XXXX. However, XXXX XXXX broke up my loans when it was sold to XXXX XXXX. At this point, my loans were report as $ XXXX. This amount is incorrect. It appears it is ” estimated interested ” already added to my loan. I did not learn of this until some of my loans were reported in default and XXXX XXXX came after me wages by attempting garnishment. I got my lawyer involved and then they agreed to put me in a repayment plan. However, even though I was paying them as agreed XXXX XXXX was still reporting me as default. The rest of my loans were with XXXX in good standing. After the ” rehabilitation period ” was over XXXX XXXX sent me to Nelnet. They are charging {$20.00} interest day ; $ XXXX monthly or $ XXXX annually. This is just in interest. My monthly payment is {$690.00}. So that is a total of {$1200.00} per month. I was told an additional 30 % would be added for the life of my debt with Nelnet. There is no way I could ever pay this loan off. I don’t make enough to keep up with this outrageous predatory lending tactic towards graduate students. These terms were not agreed upon when I took out my loan or exited my school process. I need help to protect my credit. Interest monthly should never exceed my monthly payment. Nelnet and XXXX XXXX are one in the same. I contacted XXXX XXXX and it gives me XXXX, as well. I feel trapped and need help fast! Every day is costing me {$20.00}. I want to pay what I owe, not 3x ‘s plus 30 % ” insurance ” for the life of my debt with Nelnet/XXXX. HELP!!!
