I am in the beging stages of having problems with this company....I can see it coming. Why i was in school I took out several loans to pay for it with a local company called ESF. Well in may before i graduated I tried to Consolidate my Loans with ESF to save a little money with intrest and whet not.Well during my Grace period my loans were sold off to American Education Services which my mother assured me that this does happen bieng my first time I have ever taken out a loan.
Well about three months go by during my grace period well I decide to give them a call(ESF) and see how my consolidation was going and they told me everything was sold to AES . So the phone chace began...I called AES and asked them about my consolidation .the gentleman assured me that everything was on track and that it was taken care of.Well after my grace period was up I started recieving multiple bills from AES ...when in fact I should have only been recieving one.
Well I make a payment for X amount of dollars...well the next month my payment tripled and relized that my loans were never consolidated...I WAS PI**ED...so now I am playing email tag with them and reapplied for consolidation AGAIN and I will be posting my progress with them just to let others know the Hassel and regret that I am dealing with..WHO WANTS TO GO THROUGH SCHOOL ONLY AFTERWARD TO BE HASSELED BY A LOAN (SHARK) COMPANY.
This is thier response to my first email...I also responded to this very upset about the whole ordeal...Because my student loans should have been consolidated and payment shouldn't have exceeded a 150.00 bucks a month and now they are doubled and tripled that amount. I really need some help on steps to take to get back at this company...I cant stand corporations that rape American harworking citizens.I will keep posting my emails as they go back and forth.

Additional Comments: I had applied for consolidation in May of 07 after I graduated ..Today I look at my loan information and none of it has been consolidated yet . I am very upset with this service ..I applied for consolidation once again. Also the last time I called you all which was in September the gentleman that I spoke with assured me that the consolidation was on track to go through .Now I find out that it hasn't. I cant afford a xxx dollar payment a month and i wouldnt expect any college graduate with a two year degree to afford it.Also I am applying for a forberance today and will be sending it imediatley.I hope for some type of resolution within days on this situation.
