I recently that I unable to consolidate and I contacted South Coast Financial to discuss my options. Their representative confirmed that I would not be able to consolidate my student loans and that I would be refunded all the money I had paid for their services.
After repeated phone calls and assurances, I received my refund check for the full amount. However, today I discovered the check was returned to back for insufficient funds.
