Sent to Collections

I was making regular payments to Unisa after graduating from a program (which the school closed after I graduated) and the loan was "assigned" to Deville Asset Management. They are reporting it to Equifax as a collection even though I am making on-time monthly payments. This business is a scam and part of what is wrong with the American Collegiate Education System.

User's recommendation: Take out a loan through your bank or credit union, take out a loan from a back alley loan shark before you deal with this company.

Last I "saw." If you owe the money, you owe the money. If you don't, then stop talking to them.

Of course, a collection agency will add to your debt, that's what happens when you let a car get repoed. You can talk all you want about lawsuits against them if that makes you feel better but if you owe it, you best watch out. You could find yourself being sued and then the fun begins with garnishments etc. You probably should be online learning how to write and checking to see if you're being sued on a weekly basis.

If you're being sued and have moved like a nomad or changed your number, you won't know about it until it's too late. IF you're being sued, show up or else...

Horrible

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
So I made it a goal to pay off all my debt which I have been doing. There was this one company that was on my credit report and I owed them $1300. We settled for $525 and they were going to remove it. I kept in contact some in June, all of July and I finally made a $350 payment at the end of August. So now it’s almost the end of September and I called to pay the remaining balance of $175 so it could get removed. I called.... “The number you have reached have been disconnected or no longer in service, please check the number and dial again “. Smh even the agent I was working closely with number is disconnected smh! I googled the number and it’s the same number from my credit report. I called the original creditors and these are the people they sold my account to. What am I supposed to do now? Who the *** am I supposed to pay to get it removed? I just want to buy a house

I am in the same position. Santander sold my debt to Deville and they were shut down for a Ponzi scheme.

Now Experian has it as a closed account and the others have my account as in collections.

And its preventing my home loan approval..I'm lost. I was told to dispute with the three bureaus and after 60 days with no response it will be removed.

Non working number

These people are causing my credit score to get lower and lower they keep reporting that my payments are late and I never had a payment arrangement. When I look at the information on my credit report there is a non-working number 188********, all I need is for them to take this money and get out of my life! Every week they are posting that my payments are late and that is not true I don't know what to do if any other debt company can find who owes them why can't they. I never knew anything about them until now and it says they bought the debt from someone else which I never received paperwork stating that information when the company they bought the debt from has my updated information because I was trying to pay them biweekly but they wanted it all in one payment and by the time I get all the money to pay they sold it to these folks, so now I got two people haunting my credit for the next 10 years this is a mess!

Beware of this Predatory Collector!

Beware of Deville Asset Management…..they are shysters and predatory collectors! I have a school loan being serviced through Unisa, which I pay every single month on time, by auto pay. I’ve NEVER been late and I’ve NEVER missed a payment. Deville owns the account which is serviced through Unisa, and put everyone in collections, in an attempt to get everyone to pay off their balance. They can report it as a “collection” simply because they are a collections company. Borrowers are offered a discount to pay in full, but can only do so within 3 months of payments. (This is a large school loan!) How can they report someone as in collections, that has never been late, just because they want the loan paid off? That’s fraudulent reporting!! When I called to speak to a manager, “Leo White” (I’m sure a pseudo name), Mr. White was defensive, immature, irrational and unprofessional. He would constantly talk over me, and when asked if he could let me finish, he would then act like a pouty child and not speak at all. I am already upset I have to deal with this mess that is obviously very unfair and not legit, but then having to deal with a bully manager who clearly couldn’t care less about my feelings is the icing on the cake. I realize no one has an option with what “collection” company you get stuck with, but hopefully some lending companies out there will read this and chose NOT TO USE Deville as their collection resource. Lenders, If you have to use a collection company, use one that is legit and not one that is using predatory, fraudulent, manipulative, unprofessional, iffy and scummy business practices.
