College Lending Solutions will tell you that they can take care of your defaulted student loans and if you don't qualify for their program they will gladly refund your money.

But when it comes time to refund your money, they DON'T.

When you call to inquire about your refund they promise to call you back but never do. Their accounting office is magically at lunch or not available at the moment. Then a person named Steve tells you a strange story about how they had to switch companies that deal with your refund check because they were having issues with the refunds.

They tell YOU to call YOUR bank and ask for a CHARGE back.

Don't deal with College Lending Solutions unless you are ready to lose your MONEY. If you qualify for their program you might be OK but if you don't then kiss your REFUND goodbye.

Confused...

AUTHOR: College Lending Solutions - ()

Dear Stevie - Philadelphia, PA

My name is Stephen DeVito and I am one of the owners of College Lending Solutions.  We do not employ anyone with the name Russ.  I believe that you are confusing us with another company that is located in Tampa Florida where this original complaint started from.  I would suggest contacting your credit card company and file a charge back to get your money back.  My office would be happy to help you and you can contact us at 877-509-3179 and we can review your situation for you for free and advise you accordingly to what your next steps need to be in order to get your situation resolved in your best interest.  I am sorry that you are currently experiencing a difficult time with the company that you have decided to do business with - I would ask that you review your paperwork and make sure that it states College Lending Solutions  PO BOX 1412 Salem, NH 03079. 

Best Regards,

Stephen J DeVito

Very helpful

AUTHOR: Satisfied - (United States of America)

My name is Joe and I just finished using College Lending Solutions to consolidate my loans that were in default. Not only is this not a scam, but they were very helpful in aiding me through the process the entire way. Anytime I had a question I called and talked to Steven Devito personally. This company also helped me cause they were willing to accept payments towards the consolidation and I did not need to pay a lot of money upfront. All in all I'm a very satisfied customer and told Steven on the phone that I would be writing this rebuttal.

#5 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Never charged her card and was never a client of CLS

AUTHOR: College Lending Solutions - (United States of America)

My name is Stephen DeVito and I am the owner of College Lending Solutions.  The complaint listed on this website is incorrect.  The client was never charged any money from College Lending Solutions, she paid a debt management service who transferred her to me at College Lending Solutions.  I went over the clients loans and it was determined that she did not qualify for our program.  The client believes that she paid College Lending Solutions but if she would check her credit card statement she would see that College Lending Solutions never charged her card she was just referred to CLS as a possible candidate for the program.  College Lending Solutions has an A- rating with the Better Business Bureau and we have always refunded our client's money that we couldn't help.
