Consumer Complaint: I am reaching out for assistance with a payment made to Navient.

A payment was initiated by XXXX XXXX on XX/XX/18 to Navient electronically. The payment was in the amount of {$4200.00} which was to payoff my final Navient loan. On XX/XX/XXXX, I realized that my payment had not posted and it was then discovered that the account number was one digit incorrect.

At this time, I contacted Navient. I spoke with a CSR who informed me that I needed to send proof of payment through my online account and they would reroute the payment to the correct account. I was given a 7-14 business day resolution time-frame with it being complete on XX/XX/18.

On XX/XX/18, my payment still had not posted so I called again. The CSR at first stated that they still had my payment and that I would need to wait 10-14 business days for it to post. I had already waited that time so I pressed about it being a high priority. She placed me on hold and then said that the payment had actually been sent back to the bank on XX/XX/18. She can not give me the bank name, routing, account, reference number, trace number, etc. As of today, XXXX hasnt received the refund. The Navient CSR gave a 7-14 business day window to get the payment back. An electronic payment does not take 7-14 business days. I need assistance tracking this money down so I can payoff my loan.

Thank you, XXXX XXXX
