Complaint / review text:
I have a student loan with Sallie Mae from the early 90's. The loan was around 8,000.00 dollars. I enrolled to Southern Tech College. The first semester of school, I was activated into Desert Storm. When I returned the school, said I could not start until January. While I was waiting to start school, the school filed bankruptcy.
They never refunded me the student loan I was unable to use. My 8,000.00 loan is now 20,000.00. I have tried to contact senators & sent letters to (3) presidents explaining my story. I had to put my education on hold to serve my country. The school accepted all my loan but when they filed bankruptcy, never offered to refund me the money. I feel anytime a school you when your serving your country someone should work with you. Sallie Mae has denied me a public hearing and has always sent me letters. I feel like they do not want my story to be told and I have heard they have done the same thing to other people in the military.
I have been married for 19 years & have 2 children. I feel like my children will suffer from this. I have read other stories by people with loans from Sallie Mae. I feel like they are very sneaky company that has screwed alot of hard working Americans.
