terrifying man

Dear Maurice,

I’m not clear how you feel Navy Federal is abusing you.

Is it possible you made late payments along the way or defaulted at some point and that caused additional interest, late fees and penalties to be added?

Are you current on the payments?

Do you have any other accounts there? Bank accounts? Car loan?

Do you know what your credit score is? If so, can you share it. If not, you can get it for free at Credit Karma.

Please post your responses and follow-up messages to me on this in the comments section below.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.

  • Why don’t you just try to work out a payment agreement with them whit reduced payments or interests rate. A win/win for everyone

  • They won’t settle with you as long as you are current on payments. So you need to stop paying, save those payments, add it to the 7k you’re willing to drop, and give it to them when they are ready to settle with you.
