Consumer Complaint: My loans are defaulted. I was told I could rehab the loans for $ XXXX/month and after 5 months wage garnishment would stop and after 9 months the loans would be out of default. I made XXXX payments in XXXX, XXXX, XXXX, and XXXX. When making my payment in XXXX they told me that my payment was now going to be XXXX because they recalculated based on documents I sent in and I had to send a letter back to them. I made a XXXX payment in XXXX and was told none of my XXXX payments count as part of the rehab. I was told the XXXX payment would be counted as my 1st payment. I was led to think each time I made a XXXX payment is was counting toward my loan rehabilitation. My XXXX payment should be and is my 5th payment not my first.
