SLM, Sallie Mae Faces Class Action Over Unauthorized Calls to Borrowers
February 3 2010 - by Lucy Campbell
Seattle, WA: A nationwide class action lawsuit has been filed against the student-loan giant SLM Corporation, popularly known as Sallie Mae, over alleged unauthorized autodialer calls to the cell phones of borrowers who took out student loans with the national lender. The class action complaint seeks both injunctive relief and money damages.
"Sallie Mae harassed me with dozens of unwanted calls on my cell phone, including calls that woke me up at all hours of the night and often within hours of each other. These unrelenting calls unfortunately corresponded with a time in my life that required great attention to family issues," stated plaintiff and Seattle resident Mark A. Arthur.
According to publicly available information, Sallie Mae manages over $180 billion in education loans and serves ten million student and parent customers.
Sallie Mae loan holders who originally entered into a student loan with Sallie Mae prior to 2004, and received a pre-recorded phone call to their cellular phone on or after October 27, 2005, without their prior express consent may be eligible to join the class action.

Received robo calls from Sallie Mae and Naviant to my home and cell, sometimes no one speks to you when you pick up, because the robo call hasn't connected to the caller yet. One time my cell voice mail picked up and they never noticed it was recording they were making fun of the people they talk to and one of them was talking about harassing some to pay $10,000 on their loan.
***I have one saved on my cell currently from Navinent, where they called me at 8.05pm 1-9-2017
when my cell voice mail answered they just keep talking to each other about a car and never noticed my cell was recording, these calls are not professional, and the robo calls are calling my work now which I never gave them the # or permission to use.
