Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: Navient is practicing predatory lending with my private school loans which are over 120,000 in debts that continue to grow even though I make payments. These loans are designed so that I can never pay them off. They have created an undue hardship on myself and my family. I have had these loans over ten years and the balance is greater today than when I first took them out. I will never get them paid off at this rate. This is against the law and I want Navient to forgive this debt to avoid a lawsuit.
Company: Navient Solutions, LLC.
