Product: I do not know
Issue: Attempts to collect debt not owed
Consumer Consent Provided to Share Complaint: Consent provided
Consumer Complaint: I have been receiving robo-calls from Navient regarding a debt for a person that I don’t know. The calls started out once or twice a week, then ramped up to once a day. After contacting them via phone and explaining, this is a place of business, I have been receiving twice the calls, the last one today, XX/XX/XXXX. I don’t mind speaking with an Agent, even though the debt isn’t mine in the hopes of resolving the issue. However, these calls are from an automatic messaging system, so you need to call them back and wait for 10-15 minutes to get a live person. Each person is cordial enough and tell you that they will take you off the list, then you receive two calls the next day. Please assist in fixing this issue. I’ll provide all the pertinent information. Since, this is a business line, we’ve got all inbound and outbound call data saved.
Company: Navient Solutions, LLC.
