Product: Private student loan

Issue: Struggling to repay your loan

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I filed a chapter & bankruptcy to legally discharge the supposed debt I have with XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. This was presented to me as a private loan through XXXX XXXX that could be used for college expenses or personal expenses not related to school. Obviously, not one dime of this money was used toward college or I wouldn’t owe the federal government over {$80000.00} in student loans today. My credit report is showing this matter as having been closed ( see attachment ). I already paid over {$2000.00} to XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX after the bankruptcy because I was unaware that they had no right to further collect on a discharged debt nor could I afford an attorney at that time. My current attorney sent a letter to them last year which subsequently led to the debt being removed from my credit report as closed. I was served with suit papers with a court appearance scheduled for XX/XX/2018 in XXXX XXXX court by XXXX XXXX XXXX the latest law firm to take over these collection practices. They had attempted collection last XXXX via mail and I replied via email that this debt was legally discharged via Chapter XXXX and brought up the lawsuit by Consumer Financial Protection Bureau against XXXX that stated collection could not be pursued while the audit of over 800,000 records was in process.
