myeddebt.ed.gov - is this legit?
« on: December 30, 2015, 11:40:43 AM »
I just got a call from a supposed student loan debt collector.  It was myeddebt.ed.gov

Has anyone worked with this organization before?  Are they legit?

My myeddebt.com is where the Department of Education sends your loans when you're in default. They are contracted debt collectors for the Department of Education. Not a good thing.

If you're looking to get out of student loan default, follow the steps outlined here: https://thecollegeinvestor.com/15577/how-to-get-your-student-loans-out-of-default-with-rehabilitation/
