Product: Private student loan
Issue: Struggling to repay your loan
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: Navient has continuously harassed, lied and pushed me into forbearance. I had my student loans with them since they took them over nearly 10 years ago. I have more than $ XXXX in student loans and I was forced into consolidating them with another company. Unbeknownst to me, I was bombarded with refinance/consolidation letters from a few companies, but it was always this one company called XXXX. When I was receiving the letters, I was never told that Navient owned XXXX. When I requested my loan promissory notes, they told me to do it online, yet you can not. My biggest concern is that Navient has essentially coerced me and many others into believing they could get student loan help by using this other company XXXX. But, they own the company they are telling you to move to. What a bunch of bull.
