Have you experienced any problems with you student loans from Navient? Were you ever not notified of loans going into default? Did any of your loans go into default without being notified and now your wages are being garnished and you can't get any answers or solutions? Are you getting the run around from Navient and Pioneer Credit Recovery Inc? Did any of your loans from United Student Aid Funds get transferred to Navient or Great Lakes and now none of them are claiming to own your loans and some collection agency is aggressively going after you to collect? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then please read on. What I do know is that USA Funds (United Student Aid Funds) have changed their name and longer service student loans. They transferred federal loans to Great Lakes. The problem i'm encountering is that Great Lakes told me they had two of my federal loans for a short time but transferred it back to Navient. Navient tells me that they are speaking on behalf of USA Funds, but can't do any modifications or changes to the defaulted loans because they are not the original guarantor . Pioneer Credit Recovery says only USA Funds can change or withdraw the garnishment (do you see the problem?) No one is claiming to own my two federal loans that went into default. No wonder why I was never notified. Now, I have heard from Navient saying they do not have my defaulted federal loans and I should contact Great Lakes. But Great Lakes say they too do not own the loans (like chasing a ghost). When I contact Pioneer, I let them know that USA Funds apparently do not exist and should null the garnishment order immediately, they declined and said they are going off their contract. I let them know since USA Funds no longer exists their contract is invalid and illegal (the whole conversation has been recorded) They didn't seem to care. The really interesting research I did, is that both companies are currently being sued by several attorney generals and the CFPB. And the really interesting part is that both companies are connected (several board members on Pioneer are also board members on Navient). I too currently have complaints in on both companies with the: BBB, CFPB, US dept of Ed, Illinois AG, Washington AG, New York AG. I am asking you that if you answered yes to any of the question above, PLEASE take the time and respond to this post. I think these two companies are starting a new scheme and should be stopped immediately. If there are enough responses and others that are experiencing the same problem, I WILL try my best to start a Class Action. Also, please post this forum on any social media account to help get the word out. Also, just in case someone or some company has this blog taken down and as long as the owner of this site allows, send me a PM or email me your contact info (Name and contact method only) in case this does go to court, I will be able to keep you updated.

Equidata has placed two collection accounts on all 3 CRA's. The original amount was $712 owed to a cable provider. Equidata bought the debt and is now splitting the debt in two and reporting as separate accounts. They did send a payment ledger from the OC that shows the full amount of $712 under one account number. The amount is from damaged equipment and a late payment. Equidata has one collection account for $185 for service and on for $527 for equipment. Are they allowed to buy this one debt and split it like that? What can I do if anything to get this taken care of. This is a validated debt but I am unsure if them splitting the account will work out in my benefit. Thanks in advance
I have read so many different rules about collection agencies and junk debt buyers and their ability to report on your credit report. Ive compiled some questions below specific to my situation. If anyone can give me some insight, it would be helpful. Questions Regarding Debt Collection Accounts (Not w/ original creditors, sold to 3rd parties after charge offs) 1.) Are debt collectors allowed to make repeated hard inquiries to one's credit report? 2.) If a debt collector assigns an attorney to your account, can the attorney make repeated hard inquiries to your account? I've had a "frederick j hanna" lawyer make three hard inquiries in a period of 2 weeks. 2.) Should a debt collection account be listed as an OPEN account or CLOSED account on one's credit report? 3.) Shouldn't these collection accounts be under "Collections" rather than open/closed? 3.) Should the 'Date Opened' reflect the month/year that the collection agency acquired the account from the original creditor? 4.) Should the 'Balance Date' reflect the initial balance after acquiring account from original creditor OR should it be the updated balance indicating when the account was updated? 5.) Are debt colelctors allowed to make incomplete credit report entries, such as as collection account with no balance listed or no dates? 6.) What does Loan Type "Factoring Company Account" mean? 7.) How can a past due status be more than the high credit? 8.) what should i do if a debt collector who owns the account is reporting it as an installment account when it is not? (I have three collectors reporting this incorrectly) Believe it or not, I have one LVNV funding account which has posted the same account TWICE, once under OPEN accounts and once under CLOSED accounts! Questions Regarding Accounts Listed Under Original Creditors (after being charged off and sold) 1.) If an original creditor account is listed as a charge off on a credit report (and is has been sold to a collector), should the 'Account Status' be 'Collection' ? I have one that still has a '120 Days late' notation even though its been charged off. 2.) Should the 'Balance Date' reflect the last date updated or date they sold the charged off account? 3.) Under one charge off, its noting delinquencies in the months preceding the charge off, however, there was no account activity for two years. Last delinquencies listed should be last activity right? 4.) What if an account was charged off and sold, shouldnt it be then noted as Balance: $0 ? If it helps, some of the scum im dealing with is ARROW FIN, LVNV, and MIDLAND.
