Asking for a friend: A recent cc app revealed a default on a student loan from a large bank. My friend has never taken a student loan out with this bank and has no idea why it's on the report. Anyone have thoughts on how to get to the bottom of this? Call the bank? If so, what branch of the bank should we try to reach? Get a copy of credit report first? Is that necessary if we already know the bank's name?
My only thought is maybe this bank "bought" my friends' student loan from its original issuer. This happened to me when my fed loan was taken over my MOHELA. Now I pay MOHELA.
