Consumer Complaint: I have been paying my loans faithfully through XXXX, but it seems nyshesc hires or sells defaulted loans to different collection companies. My wages are being garnished by XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, but as I mentioned I have been paying my loan faithfully. I need this garnishment removed from my employer ‘s payroll. Reference number XXXX. I had a XXXX and I have an XXXX XXXX, worrying about this company and other companies hired by nyshesc is making my condition worse. I might end up homeless. Please stop this abuse. I already wanted to XXXX XXXX because I see no light at the end of this tunnel of sharks after money that I have been paying. Maybe that is the best solution. Then they can’t rob me any more. I’m paying and they are still garnishing please I beg of you, stop this garnishment.
