Have you been sued by National Collegiate Student Loan Trust?
Who are they?
National Collegiate Student Loan Trust (also sometimes referred to as “National Collegiate Trust” or simply “NCT”) is a company that purchases defaulted student loan debt from various banks so that they can turn around and sue the borrower.
Are they legitimate?
Like many debt-buying companies that primarily purchase debt in order to turn around and sue consumers to collect payment, they are certainly subject to scrutiny. Sometimes they can produce documentation required to obtain a judgment, sometimes they cannot.
If you have been served with a Summons and Complaint by National Collegiate Student Loan Trust, you should assume that it is a an actual lawsuit and take swift action to try and prevent a judgment from being entered against you.
Simply ignoring a lawsuit because you don’t recognize the company that is suing you will not prevent the plaintiff from pursuing relief from the Court system. And once a judgment has been entered, the law assumes that it is valid, thus allowing NCT and its attorneys to take lawful action to involuntarily collect payment from you (including wage garnishment, frozen bank accounts and liens on property).
