Consumer Complaint: I am cosigned on a loan with my son- he is making a {$75.00} a week payment/ {$300.00} a month – this loan should be paid ahead of the payment is only {$230.00} a month leaving a surplus of {$65.00} per month.

XXXX they called and stated that they haven’t received payment since XX/XX/XXXX- I got on my sons account and there is consistent {$75.00} weekly being sent. This was a lie.

XXXX called the number on my way to work was connected with a XXXX person that was not very cooperative- she stated that they are receiving payments I tried to get her to explain to me how this could be behind if the payment monthly is {$230.00} and there is a weekly payment of {$75.00} which is {$300.00} per month this loan should be paid ahead since XX/XX/XXXX of this year- she tried to push me off the call I waited to speak to a Team Lead and asked the same questions- since there is obviously research and misapplied payments that need to happen on XXXX XXXX side of the house I asked for to have my number removed and not called. She stated they can remove from dialer but will still manually call- I have been really sick this year with 2 XXXX and not doing well- there is obviously some misappropriation of funds and this needs to be escalated.
