Consumer Complaint: I’m resubmitting this complaint because you have not investigated but provided a canned answer 1 ) THE CALL I RECEIVED WAS NOT ABOUT MY LOAN 2 ) STOP CALLING ME ABOUT A LOAN THAT IS NOT MINE 2 ) STOP CALLING ME AT THE NUMBER YOU CALLED FOR ANY REASON. As you know, if a consumer says, ” stopped calling me ” you have to stop, and again, you were not contacting me about my loan. In your response you said my loan ( yes I have a loan with you, but again, the call WAS NOT ABOUT MY LOAN ) is past due – IS NOT ACCURATE. Again, after using abusive language your representative determined that she called the wrong person. Investigate this and do not provide me with another canned answer.
Here is the original complaint.
— — — On XX/XX/XXXX and XXXX I received calls from Navient to my business line. I returned the call on XX/XX/XXXX and realized It was Navient ‘s attempt to collect a debt. While I do have student loans with Navient they are being paid and not in default. I was previously contacted on my business line on XX/XX/XXXX about the debt. I went through the prompts and the woman realized that they had called the wrong person. I asked her to not call my business line again and she obliged. So when I got the call in XXXX I was surprised. When I spoke to the woman I immediately said, I asked you not to call this line. She immediately went on the attack and threatened to sue me ; I explained to her that I’m not even who she was looking for. Again, she used very abusive language but when she went through all the identifying information, she realized ( as I tried to tell her ) it wasn’t me she was looking for and then she hung up. I called Navient customer service to complain and ask that my business line not be called. Apparently they have no real process for this and could not identify who to call. They said call the person who initially contacted you. It was a direct dial to that person so I’m supposed to complain directly to the person that’s the issue? I was told to leave a message asking for a manager to call me back. I’ve been calling for a week with no answer and no response. I want them to 1 ) not call my business line 2 ) stop calling me about a debt that’s not mine 2 ) be fined for continuing to call a number I asked them not to. The person at issue is XXXX XXXX or XXXX her direct dial is XXXX. I spoke to her the morning of XX/XX/XXXX around XXXX.
