Complaint / review text:
This is upsetting! How can the Dept of Ed let companies like ECMC get away with tactics like this? I had student loans in the mid 90's. All paid off and I have receipts. They inputted my last paid off payment 4 years AFTER!!! I paid in 2009 - computer on national student database said 2013. By law they are suppose to notify you to take any taxes. Luckily that didn't happen to me. I sent them a cease and desist letter, valid receipts and payments and they avoid and do not talk to me. However, the problem is they try and keep my account open and get me to paid a debt that is not valid and avoid my dates and receipts. Also, ECMC is not actually part of the US Dept of Ed but a collection agency to try and get monies (valid or not) - that is what most collection agencies do. If they brought your loans from ED FUND or whatever company they were before they don't care if they were paid off. They just want to get you to think you owe them when you don't. So frustrating and these practices and people have to be stop!!
