While I was still legally married to (but in a divorce dispute with my ex-wife) she and her then boyfriend took out loans
and even used my name in an insurance
fraud. I was able to resolve the insurance fraud, and a Citi Bank/Home Depot loan with a police report. Navient and Wells Fargo will not budge on the student loans.
There are two student loans totaling about $20,000 that are now crippling blotches on my credit. One loan has a provable fraudulent signature, and the other simply has an E-signatrue. Both loans were taken out an month apart in 2009.
I have a signed and notarized statement from my ex-wife saying that I didn't actually co-sign her loans. I filed police reports and complaints through the Consumer Financial Bureau. The Attorney General
's office has contacted me regarding the Navient loan. I haven't head from the AG for several months.
Wells Fargo with the obviously forged signature has stopped calling. Navient, however, has turned their loan over to National Enterprise Systems.
The question then: They say simply because I was still married in 2009, my wife was free to use my name and make me a co-signer on her loans. If this is true, it would seem I'm screwed. True?
