Feel free to let me know if I should remove or move this post elsewhere… I just got off the phone with the Washington State AG’s office.
They called in response to the Group Discharge Request submission I sent through their website 2 DAYS AGO. Very quick. And I’m not even a current constituent! I used the template provided and added my own story about being defrauded by ITT Tech and it continuing with Navient. He gave me an update on WA’s actions around for-profit fraud cases etc. He didn’t sound very hopeful as their hands are tied on a lot of fronts. ITT Tech is a particular challenge for them. But they are listening and collecting information! He did ask my permission and will be passing along my information to the CFPB regarding a Navient case they are working. He said WA is also working their own info gathering on a case regarding Navient; if you are currently from WA and have had struggles with Navient, I would encourage you to contact the AG’s office, voice your story and get on their witness list (if you would want to).
I applaud WA for their quick response. I sent a similar letter to my current AG in Delaware about a month ago and am still awaiting a response.
