MyCreditCounselor.net Helps Struggling Private Student Loan Borrower Negotiate 30% Settlement With KeyBank

July 31, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - MyCreditCounselor.net, a professional private student loan negotiation company operated by a NACCC Certified Student Loan Counselor, has recently negotiated a 30% settlement for a private student loan borrower. Jenna Harner had $43,000 outstanding on her loan when the lender, KeyBank, increased the monthly payments to an unsustainable $1,000 a month, despite Jenna having never missed a previous payment. KeyBank then denied Jenna any option to lower the payments and insisted that the payments should be made to the new amount, despite there being no reasonable explanation for the increase, and after being informed that she simply could not afford them.

Feeling like she had no power over the situation, Jenna exhausted all of her communication options with the lender, only to be met with representatives informing her that there was nothing they could do to lower the payments and she would have to pay them or face default. After the loan defaulted, Jenna researched which steps she could take. Upon finding several informative articles by the owner of MyCreditCounselor.net (Andrew Weber), she promptly contacted him for advice.

Following discussions between Andrew Weber and Jenna about the unresolved and stressful situation with her private student loan lender, Andrew made it clear that he had previous experience with this lender and was confident he could arrange a reasonable settlement of the defaulted loan. He began intensive negotiations with KeyBank which resulted in a 30% settlement offer, which she took.

Claiming that the daily phone calls stopped immediately after agreeing to let Andrew take over negotiations on her behalf, Jenna was relieved that a resolution was found quickly and without any further stress.

She had this to say about her experience with KeyBank and MyCreditCounselor.net: "Mr. Weber kept me informed every step of the way while negotiating. The process went very quickly and Andrew Weber was able to negotiate a 30% settlement with the bank."

She continued: "The stress of defaulting was making me sick. As soon as I saw the letter from the bank agreeing to Mr. Weber's negotiated amount it was as if a great weight was lifted off of me. I felt the negotiation charge for the service was well worth it. I never thought I would be out from under this student loan debt. Without Andrew Weber's help, I would still be struggling under the mental stress of the situation as well as the financial stress. I could not have asked for a better outcome."

Andrew Weber is proud to have been able to, yet again, guide another borrower through the arduous process of private student loan settlement. Speaking about the negotiation, he said: "This was one of the best settlements I’ve negotiated this year. We put in place a specific custom strategy to achieve the best outcome with this lender."

In the private student loan world, two of the largest private lenders are Navient and Sallie Mae. For those wishing to find out more about loan forgiveness, and in particular Sallie Mae and Navient student loan forgiveness can read a very helpful blog article here.

Protests squeezing Hong Kong economy, tourism, leader says

Oct 18, 2019

HONG KONG — Hong Kong's economy is languishing after months of increasingly violent protests, the city's embattled leader Carrie Lam said Tuesday. Lam, addressing reporters after a long weekend of more turmoil, said tourism arrivals were down by half and that hotels and retailers were suffering. Hong Kong's third quarter economic data will definitely be "very bad", said Lam, the semi-autonomous territory's Beijing-backed chief executive said. Lam said she did not have the data with her. But empty streets and tourist attractions are evidence of the fallout from the protests that began in June over a now-shelved extradition bill that...

US priest who gave out gifts in Philippines accused of abuse

Oct 18, 2019

TALUSTUSAN, Philippines — The American priest's voice echoed over the phone line, his sharp Midwestern accent softened over the decades by a gentle Filipino lilt. On the other end, recording the call, was a young man battered by shame but anxious to get the priest to describe exactly what had happened in this little island village. "I should have known better than trying to just have a life," the priest said in the November 2018 call. "Happy days are gone. It's all over." But, the young man later told the Associated Press, those days were happy only for the priest....

In Japan, a court case highlights paternity leave issues

Oct 18, 2019

TOKYO — He sits in an office of a major Japanese sportswear maker but reports to no one. He is assigned odd tasks like translating into English the manual on company rules like policies on vacations and daily hours, though he has minimal foreign language skills. He was sidelined, he says, as retribution for taking paternity leaves after each of his two sons was born. Now he's the plaintiff in one of the first lawsuits in Japan over "pata-hara," or paternity harassment, as it is known here. The first hearing is scheduled for this week. His case is unusual in...

China ban on some textbooks seen aimed at Uighur culture

Oct 18, 2019

BEIJING — For 15 years, Yalqun Rozi skillfully navigated state bureaucracies to publish textbooks that taught classic poems and folk tales to millions of his fellow minority Uighurs in China's far western region of Xinjiang. That all changed three years ago when the ruling Communist Party launched what it says is a campaign against ethnic separatism and religious extremism in Xinjiang. Suddenly even respected public figures like Rozi were being arrested, caught up in a crackdown that critics have said amounts to cultural genocide. An estimated 1 million Uighurs have since been detained in internment camps and prisons across the...

Hong Kong police and protesters clash, ending violence lull

Oct 18, 2019

HONG KONG — Hong Kong protesters threw bricks and gasoline bombs at police, who responded with tear gas, as chaotic scenes returned to the summer-long anti-government protests on Saturday for the first time in nearly two weeks. Hundreds of black-clad protesters armed with bamboo poles and baseball bats fought with police officers wielding batons on a main road following a march against "smart lampposts" that was sparked by surveillance fears. The chaotic scenes unfolded outside a police station and a nearby shopping mall as officers in riot gear faced off with protesters who set up makeshift street barricades. The violence...
