Product: Private student loan
Issue: Struggling to repay your loan
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have been struggling to make my payments on this private student loan that I have with Navient. I had a co-signor and when I miss a payment they will repeatedly call the co-signor several times a day. She has received at least 1 call from them every day for over 60 days. The last time I spoke with Navient ( which was XX/XX/XXXX or XX/XX/XXXX ) I confirmed all my information and asked them to call me and not her, but they still call my co-signor relentlessly. Several times a day, but have not tried to contact me. I understand that i took the loan and I am responsible for it. But to call us continually, every day, several times a day is HARASSMENT!!!!
And should we discuss the fact that the people she and I have spoke with in the past seem to think they can be rude and disrespectful just because I am 1 or 2 months behind on my payment!!!! I am willing to submit any documents I have including and not limited to phone records showing the # of incoming calls my co-signor has received.
Seems Navient ( among other companies ) thinks they have the right to harass people just because ‘we ‘ owe money.
I would appreciate a response to this complaint. I have been dealing with many financial and personal hardships since I took this loan.
