Consumer Complaint: I have 2 loans through Navient ( aka Sallie Mae ) both within a 6 month span, for nearly 5x the tuition they charge back in XX/XX/XXXX. They are private but the issue is I was the ‘Original ‘ signor and have the paperwork to show that. But after year, they claimed my ‘dad as the signor and not only that the student ‘ he was at XXXX and in his XXXX ‘s. Now come full circle to 2 months ago I am out of work, my parents both retired and well they got nasty with all of us as it was time to re-up the pay as you can go program ( been doing it for 3 years ) was told that program doesn’t exist and your lucky to be even in it hasn’t existed for 2 years? Yet have been in it for last 2 years. The other end saying you make way more than your claiming and we must talk to the ‘signor ‘ which i haven’t been for 12 years but all of a sudden I am. Not only did my parents income drop, but now they are claiming I am the signor but since the loan was taken out on the original papers returned I am not, I demanded that paper work and they won’t comply whatsoever and was hung up on when asked. In the past for bad and miss use a layer of Navient out of XXXX contacted me and removed 2500.00 plus off the balance. But now they are just coming for the throat, loss of income, not working yet they want 300.00 plus more a month by telling me a program that does exist and shows on their website today at this current minute ‘does n’t exist and sorry ‘ Not only that we as ending the last program as they claim as ‘gone ‘ was told XXXX XXXX, XXXX payment XXXX, now they are saying 2 months behind for XXXX as charging late fees and service fees and what not.
