Consumer Complaint: I am an unemployed, XXXX-year old man who is currently going to school, hoping to improve my chances of being hired. I am a XXXX veteran with over 25 years of experience as a XXXX XXXX. Therefore, my credit history must remain untarnished for me to successfully land a job. Unexpectedly, a few months ago, I started receiving notifications from Navient that my private loans were delinquent. Immediately, I started doing XXXX to come up with money to repay these loans. Navient offered me to enter a Rate Reduction Program, which I accepted.
A few days before my second qualifying payment was due, I called Navient to forewarn this institution that I might be a couple of days behind, seeking their understanding and imploring them not reporting me to the credit bureaus. The lady whom I spoke with supposedly granted me this request, but when I made the payment on XX/XX/XXXX, Navient reported three ( 3 ) late payments to the credit bureaus. I believe that this negligent act violated at least two provisions of my rights under the Fair Credit and Reporting Act ( FCRA ) 15 U.S.C. 1681.
I called Navient several times and they continue to misrepresent the fact. Their employees and supervisors are covering up for one another. My third qualifying payment was made on XX/XX/XXXX. However, per Mr. XXXX ( Navient ID XXXX ), my third qualifying payment was not processed on time. It was processed on XX/XX/XXXX, upon my last call to Navient. In sum, I was asked TWICE to wait : a ) Until the XX/XX/XXXX ; and b ) Until XX/XX/XXXX to wait for the 6 wrongful past due reports disappear.
This is abusive and likely will preclude me from passing an employment credit background check. Also, my other creditors might raise their rates on me due to a higher perceived risk.
