National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts and related companies are unlawfully harassing and suing thousands of student borrowers across America and we want it to stop.
Jane Winne, Sarah Coffey, Vickie McMullen and Karin Hills are fighting back against unlawful and unfair debt collection practices by the National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts in a groundbreaking case now pending in federal court in Maine. With your help we can work to protect all student borrowers and their families from this type of unfair and illegal debt collection.
Winne v. National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts, 1:16-cv-00229-JDL (D. ME), has simple but very important goals: (1) stop National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts and their affiliates from bringing or continuing lawsuits and collection activity on debts they do not own, (2) compensate student borrowers who have been harmed by unfair and unlawful debt collection activity, (3) undo wrongfully obtained default or summary judgments, and (4) deter future bad acts.
If successful, we also want to be reimbursed for expenses and paid reasonable attorney's fees in accordance with the law.
Abusive debt collection tactics by the National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts are ruining lives, damaging relationships and causing lasting and permanent financial and emotional damage -- and you can help stop it with a small donation. The trusts and other corporate defendants have hired 20 lawyers from big firms across the country to defeat our case because its the first, we believe, to assert the very simple proposition based on our extensive investigation that the underlying student loans were purchased by the guarantor and therefore no longer are property of the trusts, in addition to challenging ownership and bad acts on other grounds.
Because the trusts do not own the loans, collecting them is fraudulent and must be stopped. Our case has potential to have national implications for student borrowers in a positive and meaningful way, so please help if you can and pass along this site to friends and family.
Money raised on this site will be used to help cover costs of legal representation for student borrowers, including court filing fees, discovery and research expenses, reasonable staff compensation, office expenses, travel and equipment.
