Consumer Complaint: In XXXX I realized that I had negative credit reporting from Loan to Learn. I called the number on the credit report which lead me to XXXX XXXX ( collector for loan to learn ) I asked what I owed and why I had not received notification that I owed a debt. XXXX XXXX stated they did not have an account on me and gave me the number to Loan to Learn ( XXXX ). I called Loan to Learn and spoke to the rep and was told that I have one outstanding loan balance and that the law firm was collecting on it not XXXX XXXXXXXX and that is why I had not heard from them. I contracted the law firm ( XXXX ) and was told that they do not have access to the account to collect. I stated that this was being reported to the credit bureau and that I needed a resolution. They stated they are not reporting the account and they could contact me when they could collect. I waited for a call back never received one. XXXX I received notice again that I had negative credit reporting, I called loan to learn ( XX/XX/XXXX ) back and was told that they would reach out to the law firm and they could contact me. When I did not hear something, I called back on XX/XX/XXXX. I requested to know a status he said if they dont call you back tomorrow I will. I asked about my credit report he stated well you signed the loan documents we have the right to report. I stated I have never received so much as a bill he stated they did not have to give me one I know I owe the money. I asked when the last communication was sent out he stated that it was sent out in XXXX I stated I was under bankruptcy then and did not have to pay since they were included In the bankruptcy. I stated that I have not received anything since. He stated that they may not have the documents to show they have contacted me because things get purged but I knew I took out the loan. I asked for the most recent notice he stated they have not sent one but they still have the right to collect because I signed the loan docs. To date I have not received anything, I know they know my address because it was public record during the bankruptcy. I also know that they have my phone number I called everyone involved in XXXX. To date no one with the ability to collect a payment has contacted me and they are still reporting on my credit report.
