Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have been trying without success for months to get Navient to work with me ony student loan. I went into a payment agreement which I informed the representative, I really could not afford because of the amount they were requiring me to pay. The representative stated their was nothing else she could do, even after speaking to a manager. It’s like they want to see you fail at making payments to them. The representative then made me be signed up for debits to automatically be taken out of my account. As I informed them and suspected would happen, one payment was returned and they stated the whole agreement was null and void. They still would take money from my account per the agreement but it will show negative on my credit report. How do they expect people to get better jobs if they keep making negative hits on reports and don’t work with the borrowers income? The loan is XXXX due and I have XXXX dollars being taken out of my account every two weeks. Which is a struggle, the loan number is XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. The loan was for the University of XXXX XXXX in XX/XX/2007.
