American Education Services Complaint - Don't Go Through American Education Services For Any Of Your College Loans!!!!
I took out a small loan while I was in college obtaining my associates degree. I am now working on my bachelors degree thinking that all of my loans would be deferred until after I finished college. I recently got a call from AES stating that I owed them 185 dollars on back payments and that I needed to pay that day or they could start taking my car, house, or anything of a value.... Keep in mind this was a 2 minute conversation en which I was never allowed to state I was still attending college after I finished my associates.
I did not pay and ended up having to hang up on the man because I could not explain to him my situation because he simply was not listening. I called back 20 minutes later and talked to a different person who told me I could defer my loans and it was simply a process of filling out another in-school deferment form. This was a Friday night so I immediately called my school and had them fill out the paper work but they were not going to send it till Monday morning. It is now Monday and I have received over 30(literally!) calls saying I need to pay my loan back immediately even though I have talked to a couple different people and explained the situation.
I will never get another loan through AES and I advise other college students to find another loan provider. If I new they would be so horrible about loan payments I would have just gone with the mob!
