Deragatory Account
I received a scholarship from the Marines and with the scholarship I would get a monthly stipend. I ended up leaving the program and Scholarship, but I was still receiving the monthly stipend. I called to tell them what was going on and it finally stopped. However after that i never got a call or letter saying anything about paying the money back. Not even the people I called told me anything. I never spent the money thinking I would get a call someday, but no call ever came. I recently applied to a college credit card but was denied due to this issue. The account was sent to collection and is now marked as derogatory! I never even got the chance to pay it! Now my credit has to suffer for their mistake? I called and no one would listen to me so i just paid the account in full but now they won't even updated it that I have paid it? What do i do? who do I talk to?
