I spoke with Cody from Wells Fargo today, who said I should be grateful my student loan isn’t a car loan or mortgage because they would have already taken my house by now. Grateful.
When I asked to speak to a supervisor he denied me three times before transferring me to Scott Miller. Mr. Miller said I have only three options: 1) pay the settlement amount ($25,500) now; 2) if I can’t, Wells Fargo will pursue litigation and garnishment of my and my dad’s wages (and I’d be responsible for all of their court and attorney fees); or 3) Wells Fargo will hand my account over to a collections agency, whose repayment terms wouldn’t be, “nearly as agreeable as Wells Fargo’s” (his words).
And I should be grateful.
