Yeah, that's what I thought also...
These student loan cases, as I have horrifiedly found out, are almost unwinnable ( I have not been able to research /find even one case that the Defendant won, unless basically they were dead.
This fact, in itself, points to something really unjust going on. Unfortunately, when, over 23 years ago, I received some loans (not the 52k they say but can't produce the notes or even copies) I was young and naive. Additonally, the Gov has systematically, retro-actively changed the terms of the agreements on the notes I signed. A BIG one is that when I signed the notes there was a statute of limitations. They now come after me, 23 years - 23 years...after the fact for a HUGE amount that has been built up over the years on a 9% (by law unrefinanciable, another predatory term of the agreement) years interest rate that has become a monster.
Truly, truly unjust...this is BIG Gov abuse. I mean no statute of limitation applies to murder, kidnapping, war crimes, treason..BIG criminal crimes and then here comes student loans...UNBELIEVABLE. A bank or big biz can borrow millions and claim bankruptcy if things don't work out and walk. BUT POOR STUDENTS who can't and or don't know how to fight back get crushed.
Truly amazing, but through the years I have learned to trust the GOV less than all authority. I am a good citzen, but I now reilaize that the Gov can be very abusive and very unaccountable to that abuse when it happens...REALLY SCAREY STUFF.
Anyways, I'll be back in touch soon with the details of the case so far. Anything you advise/do to help would be very much appreciated.
