I have arranged with PCR, (Pioneer Credit Recovery), to take payments directly out of my paychecks. (They call every six months and get permission anew).
They show NO record of my federal income tax nor the economic stimulus check having gone toward my debt. (This is according to 2 people from PCR I've spoken on the phone with as well as via hard copies of my monthly statements).
Pioneer Credit Recovery, Inc. is located in Arcade, New York. Their phone number is XXXXX
I will try this phone number, though it is the phone number I'd been given by the U.S. Department of Education, Default Resolution Group as well as P.C.R. This number had been one where I'd merely gotten recording after recording.
