I previously introduced my debt story here: The One That Got Away (except from all her debt)
I’m a former medical student who was on scholarship with the US Army. When the Army terminated my scholarship due to academic difficulties, I went through the appeals process and was informed I would have to pay my debt back. I never received documentation of my obligation until the US treasury sent a collections notice. After it was determined the collection decision was in error because all the correspondence was returned as undeliverable (wrong address). Unfortunately, I’ve been unable to get any assistance in this matter since then. Once the debt was returned from the treasury, DFAS told me I was ineligible for a payment plan because the debt was now too old. Current debt status: $86K “charged off as bad debt”.
TL;DR: Obligated to repay Army medical school scholarship; debt was put into collections and charged off without due process.
Any one have suggestions? At this point my patience is past the “I would like to set up a payment plan” stage.
