I was told they could lower my student loan rates and cut my loan almost in half.
They said the fee was six hundred and I could use a payment schedule.
I told them that the loan was in default.
My husband had been out of work for a short while, but his income was very low. I have been trying to pay all of our bills by myself. He said no problem it would all be resolved quickly. This was about three months ago.
Two days ago I received a letter from my company stating that my wages were going to be garnished for student loans. First I was afraid I had misunderstood or forgotten something so I reread my emails. I was assured that everything was handled.
I called immediately and was informed they were working as fast as they could, but looked like I was going to be forced to enter a program with Windham Professionals and make one or two payments of a nine month program in order to avoid garnishment. What!?!
The company that is about to garnish my pay is Windham Professionals wage withholds department 380 main st PO box 1048 Salem, NH 1-877-726-0060 ext 2363
The loan was NSLP and my total after collection fees totals 32,765.79. My initial dealings were with Rick, but it was Paul that I spoke with today and informed me that they had several cases that were with Windham and that he had informed them all that the only way to avoid garnishment was to ember the repayment agreement to buy time until the government approved the reduced monthly note.
