A Debt Collector is Garnishing Our Wages Over a Student Loan

Huffington Post Reader Question

Dear Steve,

My husband received a call from the EOSCAA in Nov, 2013 that he owed $56000 on a student loan. Between Nov 2013 and March 2014 we tried to get to the bottom of the situation. In March the EOSCAA began garnishing his wages, twice a month at a rate of near $1000. I filled out and mailed in a hardship package to the Dept of Ed containing every bill we pay, 2013 tax forms and a detailed financial inventory showing what we bring in and what is going out and it clearly showed a deficit. <more>
