Issue: Written notification about debt

Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided

Consumer Complaint: I took out XXXX private student loans several years ago. I had retained an attorney ( see below for address ) who assisted me in paying debts to other loans. In the two year span working with the attorney, they never heard from XXXX. XXXX never returned phone calls, nor could my attorney find out who ( at this time ) actually owned the loan. I was just served with a civil suit for payment which amount and date do not match anything I have on file. The amount and date are not reflected in my credit report either. I don’t actually know who owns the loan now and why they waited so many years before filing suit?
