Consumer Complaint: XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX, VA XXXX Dear Sir/ Madame My name is XXXX XXXX , I am writing in regards to Navient/ XXXX XXXX XXXX from whom Ive been trying to obtain the original signed promissory notes/ loan documents for student loans I supposedly signed for.
After finishing my studies in XX/XX/XXXX from XXXX XXXX in Florida, I contacted Sallie Mae to consolidate my student loans and my loans were consolidated. After graduation, I worked for a time and I became unemployed. I reached out to XXXX XXXX to apply for hardship deferment, but I never received a response from XXXX XXXX in regards to my requests. After several attempts, I received a phone call from a company who identified themselves as Navient/ XXXX XXXX XXXX . They stated, they were the owner of my student loan and all payments going forward will go to them. I requested for them to provide the original signed promissory notes /loan documents to verify they were in fact the company that service said loan. From XX/XX/XXXX until present day Navient/ XX/XX/XXXX has not provide any such documents.
I have contacted Navient/ XX/XX/XXXX several times in regards to my student loan, so that I will have an option to have the loan with an estimated balance of {$15000.00}, place in deferment due to inconsistent employment ; however, I was told the loan will be place in Forbearance instead of Deferment.
I provided Navient/ XXXX XXXX XXXX documents stating that I was unemployed and was receiving government assistance, so I should be automatically qualified for Deferment ; instead I was told I was not eligible and the loan will be sent to Default.
I have made several follow up calls indicating I was still unemployed, and sent Certified Letters to Navient/ XXXX XXXX XXXX requesting to have the loan place in deferment and provide the original signed promissory notes/ loan documents, but I never received any response to my requests instead I received several e-mails and letters demanding payments.
Upon review of my credit reports, I was stunned to find out not only do I have several loans totaling {$83000.00} along with my original consolidated student loan of {$15000.00}. In addition, I filed my XX/XX/XXXX taxes and did not receive a return. I contacted the Internal Revenue Service inquiring about my return ; I was told the money was taken by the US Department of Treasury via a request of the Department of Education/ Default Offset Unit. I never received a letter from Navient/XXXX XXXX XXXX stating that I was in default on my student loan.
I called the XXXX XXXX XXXX/Default Offset Unit in reference to the tax off set. I was informed that they sent a letter to XXXX, VA stating that my money will not be granted due to my defaulted loans. When I asked which address the mail was sent to, they were unable to provide that information. I am currently homeless and dont have a place to stay. Upon further inquiry on how to get the money back, I was told unless I am in Foreclosure or Evicted from my apartment that the funds will not be reimbursed to me. I asked the representatives, which I have their first name and Id numbers, if I can speak to a Supervisor or someone in management in order to have the funds return until I can resolve the issues of obtaining the original signed promissory notes/ loan documents stating that I was in truth the holder of {$83000.00} in student loans, which I believe is fraudulent and are not my student loans.
Ive tried on several occasions to reach upper management at Navient and XXXX XXXX XXXX but I was unsuccessful. I was told by call representatives at XXXX XXXX XXXX that upper managements do not pick up calls nor answer questions.
I am requesting your assistance to resolve this matter in regards to said loans to obtain the original signed promissory notes/ loan documents, as well as removing all those fraudulent loan accounts from my credit reports. I would like to have Navient and XXXX XXXX/ Offset Default Unit to dismiss my alleged loans, if they can not provide me the original signed promissory notes/ loan documents. It is severally affecting my ability to find work or complete a security clearance due to these loans that are under my name and credit reports.
I will like to request the return of my XX/XX/XXXX tax refunds that was off set from The US Treasury Department to the XXXX XXXX XXXX, so I can begin the process of getting back on my feet. I am in the process of filing a complaint with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ( CFPB ) against Navient and XXXX XXXX XXXX.
The individuals I spoke with at the XXXX XXXX XXXX as listed below by First name and ID number.
