GC Services Complaint - GC Services - Student loan collection
I am a soldier who is being harassed by GC Services for a student loan that I had deferred while I was over seas in a combat zone. After my early return due to injuries sustained while over seas I discovered on my credit report that my student loan was delinquent and in collections. I called up Sally Mae and spoke to them about the situation, and they said that they had sold the collection to GC Services. I contacted GC Services to dispute the collection. They said I needed to pay them money for a probationary period to get it out of collections. I explained to them that my last re-enlistment that I received "Tuition Assistance Repayment Program" for $10,000 dollars to cover the loan. They have refused to send the collection back to the original debtor so the loan can be paid off. I have been fighting with them sense. They call and harass me on a daily basis calling me at at 730 in the morning. This time they went too far. They some how got a hold of my commanding officer and spoke with him about the situation divulging the amount owed and all my personal information. I believe this to be a violation of my privacy because it is a civilian matter. Tomorrow I will kindly call them and speak to them as well write them a letter not to contact me on my phone or at my place of work or I will sue them for harassment at my work place and violation of my privacy and make them pay for the debt. I'm currently in a situation where I am trying to recover from injuries sustained fighting for this country just to return have some collection agency cause me that much more pain and suffering.
