Issue: Dealing with your lender or servicer
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: Over the last few years Navient has added tens of thousands of dollars in fees to my student loan and repeatedly refuse to provide me with an accounting of said fees. As well, they recently erroneously reported to the credit bureaus that I ADDED to the balance of the loan despite the fact that I have not missed a payment and that it is currently deferred until XX/XX/XXXX. They refuse to discuss my balance or the fees and refuse to prove to me where they came from. In addition they have refused to work with me at all on the balance or extra fees even going as far as to refuse a larger monthly payment at one point saying that the loan had to be repaid by the schedule agreed upon. They have no proof I agreed to that.
