Navient continues to say I owe a XX/XX/XXXX payment of {$560.00} that I paid. It was not due until XX/XX/XXXX, but posted on XX/XX/XXXX. The XX/XX/XXXX bill reflected a past due amount of {$550.00} with a total amount due of {$1100.00} I called the company on XX/XX/XXXX or XX/XX/XXXX and explained the payment had been made. The representative insisted I send proof to fax # XXXX. I went to the bank, where the bank manager said the check had been processed electronically, so she gave me bank proof of payment to Navient of {$560.00} which posted on XX/XX/XXXX. Then I became confused when the Navient representative said my bill group # is XXXX???? That has NEVER previously been my group number and if it has changed, why was n’t I notified? I wrote the usual Account and/or Group # s as they appear on my bill and I have NEVER previously had a problem. I pay my bill promptly and regularly every month. I received a call from Navient, when I was not home on Sunday, XX/XX/XXXX. I assume that was a collection call.
I called the company again on Monday XX/XX/XXXX, and my payment had still not been corrected and credited. Later that day, I received a letter from Navient COLLECTIONS department demanding the XX/XX/XXXX payment. I called that department at XXXX. I originally spoke with ” XXXX ” but that call disconnected. I called again and spoke to ” XXXX ” # XXXX who initially told me she could see where a {$560.00} payment had been made, but it had apparently been miss-applied. She then said I would have to wait until after XX/XX/XXXX to allow for the adjustment to be made. She also said she would roll back collection calls. Why could n’t she just stop those calls, since even she could tell the payment had been made? She then supposedly consulted with someone else who said the correction would be made in 2-3 days. Why? I need it corrected now! I mailed the XX/XX/XXXX payment on Saturday, XX/XX/XXXX … 4 days after the fax proof of XX/XX/XXXX payment had been sent. The correction has yet to be made. I am now afraid the XX/XX/XXXX payment could mistakenly be applied to the XX/XX/XXXX payment and now Navient will say I have not made that payment. That will then propel me into a spiral cycle of nonpayment. I have also received three emails demanding XX/XX/XXXX payment on XX/XX/XXXX, XX/XX/XXXX, and XX/XX/XXXX. This is harassment. I have uploaded documentation.
