    Wow, since they took over from Sallie Mae, I have been overwhelmed with calls especially with the right contact number but the incorrect borrower since I been unemployed.

  7. Dwight Petersen says:

    I received many calls from Navient to my telephone number which is 7167961678 but when I enter my number to file a claim it says it can’t find this number. Their is something wrong that this number does not come up in the data base because it diffidently should be in there as a number called by Navient automatic dailer.

    ADMIN – Hi Dwight,

    If you have concerns about the database you need to contact the admin.

    • SHIREE BASS says:

  9. VONITA TAYLOR says:

    When I click on the Navient Solutions TCPA Class Action Settlement I get a message that says this website can’t be reached.

    ADMIN – Hi Vonita,

    When I tried it it worked.

    • Donna L says:

      I am also getting that same ERROR message: “This site cannot be reached”
      Please advise.

      ADMIN – Hi Donna,

      You can reach out to the class action administrator to report. I tested it again and it works for me.

  10. Barbra Miller says:

    I would like information too.

    ADMIN – Hi Barbara,

    What kind of information?

  11. Anessa says:

    Does this include if they call your home# as well?

    ADMIN – Hi Anessa,

    Cellular only.

  12. Kaye says:

    I did as well. I lived in california and my son was in school in IT. Navient has been a nightmare, and abusive. I tried your claim submission but it clearly has not been setup fully I suppose since it says it does not recognize my phone number. Please correct this. Its not fair Navient gets away with this abuse.

  13. Mike says:

    Who do I contact about this? My loans were through Sallie Mae and Navient latter. Navient and Sallie Mae were the reasons I had to use software to Block the monthly almost sometimes weekly and some multiple per day. Fix your database as its not complete, thats not right.

    ADMIN – Hi Mike,

    Follow the instructions by clicking the on the claim form.

  14. Donna C says:

    I get so many stupid robocalls from tons of companies its hard to keep up with who is who…How do you know if one has gotten calls from this company? Are the only for tuition loans only or they do other stuff as well?

    ADMIN – Hi Donna,

    There is a field for you to enter your phone and check if they have contacted you before you file.

  15. san says:

    I would like to know why my contact number is showing up “not recognized”. I have had loans and payments with Navient since 2000, and still do. I am part of the class action that is being taken against them due to my qualification of receiving a call. So what now?

    ADMIN – Hi San,

    I don’t think you have legal recourse, but go ahead and contact the admin.

  16. Tara R Bryan says:

    I want to know when someone is going to start a class action against Navient fka Sallie Mae for all of the compounding interest and other charges Naviet charged after it took over Sallie Mae?? As well as failure to abide by agreements for payments, discharge and other such agreements borrowers made with Sallie Mae and Navient did not abide by those agreements. When is someone going to hold Naviet accountable for the excess fees and charges for student loan borrowers whose loans just increase every year and they have no accountability?

  17. Melissa light-branch says:

    They have screwed up my student loan so many times; I cannot even count!

  18. Melissa light-branch says:

    They have messed up my student loan so many times I can’t even count the number of times they’ve messed up!

  19. Cassandra says:

    it gives me no options to speak to someone when I call! What do I do, my number is not pulling up.

    ADMIN – Hi Cassandra,

    If your phone is not showing on the list you are most likely not a member of the class. Remember, they pulled this info from their dialer.

  20. Bridget R Shackelford says:

    I have received called

  21. deb says:

    I received over 200 calls from Navient, but as others when I enter my cell phone number, it says it’s not there. I have a copy of my cell phone records showing the many times Navient called. Should I send it to the Admin?

    ADMIN – Hi Deb,

    I would.

  22. Luis Franco says:

    I have received a countless number of calls during work hours and off not happy about this as per my phone rang off the hook metaphorically speaking most embarrassing while in meetings even when set to vibrate or silence just watching the number pop up in the screen was distracting enough not happy about this seems unprofessional and annoying.

  23. Donna Gaffney says:

    I have been receiving so many calls i don’t know who and where they are coming from but i know some say phone owner, unknown. I answered one he told me he was from the federal government i couldn’t here him i was on my way to the doctor to take my son. I just want them to stop calling. I had a car loan also that was financed with different companies combined into banks they have to help people but put higher interest rates on the loan once you miss a payment and do abide by their verbal agreement in which the operator is telling you on her screen when your payments are caught up and ahead a payment you have eight payments if you get sick. I told her good because i had to have surgery some time on my knee and she told me i could use them all at once. But when it came down to it i had a stroke and they wouldn’t even let me use none claimed they didn’t know what i was talking about i told them when i filled out my paperwork for the loan i took out and additional form if i got sick my payments would be paid that is why i paid extra for it myself and the operator told me i didn’t write her name and operator number down.

    ADMIN – Hi Donna,

    Interesting story. The important part however is the class action settlement. Did Navient call you via an autodialer? If so please submit a claim.

  24. Susan says:

    I got a post card today to fill out and sent in but have no idea if they called! I need to know if my cell number was dialed and there is nothing on their website that says if your number was called! Please help. don’t want to get in trouble for falseifying

    ADMIN – Hi Susan,

    Call the admin and ask them to check their list.

  25. Connie Duncan says:

    I tried entering my cell # and my husband’s cell #. Like alot of comments on this forum, the database could not find either phone number. Not sure if this is NAVIENT (Aka-Sallie Mae) or another totally different company altogether.

    ADMIN – Hi Connie,

    If your number is not validated with the tool you are not a member of the class.

  26. David Mayo says:

  34. Cheryl Hopkins says:

    I have received numerous calls from Navient.

  35. WL says:

    My # doesn’t appear on their list either. Just an FYI for everyone, if Navient has been abusive, falsified information, gave you incorrect information file a complaint with the Consumers Finance Protection Bureau and the Office of the Inspector General. They are nothing more than thieves.

  36. Tamika Henderson says:

  49. Elois says:

    I am received an excessive amount of calls. They say my number does not qualify. I have a loan with the company

    ADMIN – Hi Elois,

    Having a loan does not necessarily mean that you are a member of the class.

    ADMIN – Hi Luis,

    How exactly did you call us via comments?

  52. Doneva Krantz says:

    Hello.
    My name is Doneva, I’ve received hundreds of unwanted calls from Solicitors of every kind as well as constant scam calls claiming to be computer repair co. & IRS tax collectors.
    I am & have been registered on the “National Do Not Call Registry” for 15+ years & I have filed complaints with them on lots of the calls I’ve received but after so long you get tired of filing complaints so you stop but the calls continue.
    I started logging the #s in my contact list & filed all of them under the listing “scam calls do not answer” so if same # is used I see it & don’t answer.
    I tell a lot of callers, ” I’m on the National Do Not Call list so why are you calling me? Then they just hang up on me. Some #s call & if I don’t recognize the number I don’t answer it then I block my phone and call it back at which point I get one of two things: it’s either a number you can’t call back and it just hangs up or recordings answer the call and say push to to be placed on our Do Not Call list.
    They’re all annoying & never stop calling! I have no idea who or what company they are! Please check my phone# against your list, it’s. (503) 453-4773. Thank you for all you to putting an end to these extreme nuisances. 🙂

    Hi Doneva,

    Sadly I am not in charge of any lists so I can’t help you with your request.

  53. penelpoe says:

    i have gotten many of these calls and it drives me nuts. i have tied to block the calls but some how the get to us// i have no idea who they are and they do not care about the do not call list.

  55. Tracy Zwak says:

    I have 2 numbers that are on the lost. I just want to say it is such a great joy to see these people have to pay for what they did. I have even waited thru the Robot part so I could get to a live person to ask them to please stop calling. They get very rude and just hang up on me. A few days later I get the same calls agian. So thank You for what you are doing.

    ADMIN – Hi Tracy,

    I am glad you feel justice was served. Your gratitude goes to the awesome class action lawyers

  56. Randall Stevens says:

    I know to file for this claim has past, but I was effect by these phone calls. At the time I was without a job and tried several times to get them to help me, but with no success. I would like to be apart of this lawsuit due to their recent phone calls by calling my sister and my brother-in-law’s mother to which I did not give their phone numbers to. If there is any way to be apart of this class action lawsuit please sign me up. Thanks.

    ADMIN – Hi Randall,

    Once the deadline has passed you cannot file. You can however contact class counsel to see if there is a similar case that they are willing to bring against Navient.

  57. Midnight Snacktime says:

    I just wanted to say I cracked up when I read the comment by Luis that read “I’m calling about the suit..” and the admin wrote “How exactly did you call us via comments?” Lol. That brought a brief moment of joy in my life. I thank you all.

  58. melody Carter says:

    if your not in school and your wages are not being garnished and you have 5000 dollars or more in student loans . then I get hung up on. from who they call theie self premier and the same number called their company premium student loan when I asked who they are but a text message is sent to my number first about Navients class action suit to call 956-347-8673 I call and robo says to speak to specialist to see if qualify for Navient class action suit press 1 then with out knowing it you are speed dialed to phone number 1 855- 871 2227 a agent answers aa..student loan forrgivness program. Just happened twice . I don’t know what company this really is but they are not who they say they are and they are not the federal student loan forgiveness program. my 3rd time I question why are you class action and then go to a agent as giving answers that are not what they want then get disconnected and being told differentthings he repliedThey said they are there to help us to consolidate our student loans and other loans? because of Navients lies Funny I thought my student loans were already forgiven . why do I keep getting calls about i the matter from so many companies all yr round. for 5 to 7 yrs now.I have been told after telling them I already have , forgivness that I need to go through their forgiveness program. the other was not legit because there were others but who I was speaking to was that Navient. ,I also been told that my number or name wasn’t on their list. toeven being sent applications.. no even after I have been sent my letter of forgiveness.by agents to retract and consolidate because forgiveness is not good and ruins credit.. I have been sent letters to prove I’m still worthy of forgiveness to not repond and also call and respond. oh Lord help me oh Lord help us all. They have caused me a nervous Break down, anxiety and depression. I’m just doomed..oh yes now I’m being promised federal money of up to 300 dollars ,money to say I’m interested in going back to school but don’t worry you don’t have to be interested just say you are and given 5 degrees to be interested in, to say yes I agree to be contacted my other marketers or schools, say yes I have a GED or high school deploma so who they put on the phone cant get sued and has your permission and you saying you were not coached in what to say or promised anything, well I do want to go back, I have an American dream and I told them this and they didn’t have to coach me for right answers I already have them but they are not paying that 300 dollars for giving out my number to schools and they called me back this same number 15 times in one day and just called me 30 minits ago, 347-444-6538 2 times.. Now if you are a legit company you will take this and help me stop being harassed , bullied, lied to and put into distress making me feel that all thing legit are really not and there is no legit and Government grants all grants being given to frauds who are getting paid to pay foreign people being human trafficked or paid good at centers. , Making American lives distracted and misguided.. LMAO to keep from going crazy….
