Windham Professionals / Student Loans

1 FL, United States Review updated:

I've been getting these phone calls from a company called Windham Professionals based out of Salem, NH, regarding student loans. I've been dealing with this person named CHRISTINE DAVIS. Now I know that I do owe some money on loans taken out although I've been out of work now for 3 months and paying them back at this moment is not on top of my list. A couple of weeks back she said she would help me out by enrolling me in a program called the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Consolidation. She explained to me that this program was designed to work with your current income. I explained to CHRISTINE DAVIS that I was currently unemployed and currently looking for a job and that I have no income coming in now. CHRISTINE DAVIS then said she was going to send documentation about this program so I wouldn't have to worry about it for the time being and once I get a steady income coming in again then I can pick up the payments. A week passed and received the paperwork, it all sounded legit I then signed and and mailed it back.
I got a follow up call from CHRISTINE DAVIS about a week and a half later and said she received the paperwork and everything was in place. I said great and we left it at that. A couple of days ago I was out at a job interview and my girlfriend received a phone call from CHRISTINE DAVIS wanting to speak with me. She told her that I was out looking for a job. My girlfriend said that when she told her this she sounded surprised and asked why I was out looking for a job when she was fully aware I'm not working at the time. My girlfriend then hung up the phone on her. Today about 20 mins ago I to another call from CHRISTINE DAVIS. She asked me how my interview went I said good but haven't heard anything back. Her tone changed instantly and said that my account is still sitting here waiting for payment. I then asked her about the consolidation program that she enrolled me in and she said that paperwork never arrived. I was furious. After I took the time to fill out the paperwork and talk to her about it she had the you know whats to tell me that we didn't talk about this. I then proceeded to hang up the phone on her.
This company is a total scam. My advice to anyone dealing with these farm animals is if you get a phone call from them it's not even worth your time and just hang up. I kind of hope CHRISTINE DAVIS calls back soon.

    I talked to someone from windham pro about the william d ford program, which does exist but not how they explained it. They wanted me to pay some money over the phone, i told them i would send a money order. Reason being, i do my research before i give out money. First red flag when i looked them up online they are a collection agency which they never mentioned. They said they would take care of my student loan debt through the program and i could go back to school. Then i found this with all these complaints and one just like mine. I never did receive the email with the paperwork they wanted from me, but thats okay because they were never going to get it back and definitley not my money.

    I’ve had my dealings with Windham unprofessionals, I tried working with them at first, but when they don’t have the upper hand of the conversation, they get rude with you. And they will hang up on you. But I did find away to not make any deals with them, I contacted direct student aid to consolidate my school loans that went into default. When they heard I was going to fix my problem without their help, they pushed to have my wages garnished. Don’t let them get the best of you, please call direct student aid1-888-467-8833; I hope they can help you as they have helped me.

    Clever move! I hope they didn't get your wages garnished? They can't do it without a court decision. So if you get sued always show up. But prepare and seek help at debtorboards.com
