Issue: Struggling to repay your loan
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: On multiple occasions the department of Navient / XXXX XXXX placed my account into forbearance. I received emails from their employees that said respond yes to this message to place your account into forbearance. Me not being able to afford the outrageously high payments being offered I agreed to the forbearance and responded yes. I have accrued several thousands of dollars in interest over the last 5 years without them attempting to set me up with feasible payments. Im questioning the legality of what they are practicing. Do I qualify for the class action suit against Navient? Should I seek legal representation? Im aware of the multiple forgiveness programs available now but thats after the fact that Navient caused me to accrue roughly 10,000 to 15,000 dollars in additional interest. Please explain to me what my options are. Thank you for your time.
Sincerely, XXXX XXXX
