OHIO FAMILY RECEIVED 55,000 COPIES OF THE SAME STUDENT LOAN BILL
So I have to admit that I had student loans. It’s been years. But I paid them off over many years as well. I don’t miss them. And I really don’t miss the extra hassle in my budget every month. But most people who go to college have these loans. You’ve probably heard about the record amount of education debt people have these days. So millions upon millions of Americans get these student loan bills every month. But for one Ohio family, this translated into an obscene amount of bills. How many bills? 55,000. Fifty five THOUSAND bills. In one month. Can you imagine? Well, you don’t have to! A student loan company sent them 55,000 copies of the same damn bill.
STUDENT LOAN COMPANY ALSO USED WRONG INTEREST RATE, SO ALL THE BILLS WERE WRONG!
One member of this family is Dan Cain. He knew something was weird when their postman told him he couldn’t get his mail the normal way. But shortly after, he saw two postal workers literally wheeling out two big bins of mail. It was all coming to his address! Cain told local media, “I was shocked, are you kidding me, who makes that kind of mistake.” For reals. So how does a mistake like that happen? Well, there was more than one mistake. The student loan company is The College Avenue Student Loan company. They also copped to the fact that they also used an incorrect interest rate to set the bill for that month. So ALL 55,000 copies of the same damn bill are…. Wrong.
55,000 INCORRECT, STUDENT LOAN BILLS NOW JUST SITTING IN FAMILY GARAGE, AS TREES WEEP
In total, Cain added up all the letters. They totaled 79 plastic bins. Each plastic bin held about 700 letters. And they were all a student loan statement for a loan he and his wife took out for his daughter’s tuition for college. It took Cain 2 trips in his truck to get all the letters home. Now? They’re just sitting in their family home garage. But at least now, the student loan company is working with Cain and his family to get rid of all 55,000, pointless and worthless loan bills. Maybe Cain and his family can switch to paperless billing?
