My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: California
I have a student loan that went into default. The department of education sent the loan to a company called Diversified Collection services. They sent me a letter stating that I may be eligible for their loan rehabilitation program. It goes on to state that once my loan is rehabilitated: 1) my student loan will be removed from a default status 2) I will no longer be subject to offset on tax refunds or government payments as a result of the this defaulted student loan. Now last year this company took my tax return and I am trying to avoid that this year. Aftering doing research on the internet about this company I have read that they are not completely honest about not taking your taxes. I have also learned of pending lawsuits against this company. I just need some advice about setting up payments. What should I ask for in writing before setting up my payments or even making a payment to protect myself?
