I was contacted by ERS about a student loan at work. He called me by my first name and I thought the voice sounded familiar so I answered him. He went on and on about the debt and what could happen. At the end I'm to send in money and then pay a real low amount each month. But after reading some of these inquiries I don't know if the DOE contacted them or not. I'm just going to ignore the call and send payment to DOE instead. I'm just sorry they have my work number. But they can't hassle me at work that's the LAW and I'll let them know it!!!

You are in default of a federal loan that has been assigned to a collection agency. Sounds like the DOE has placed the account with them. I would highly suggest you follow their instructions to the T...failure to do so will result in them garnishing your wages without a court order. They have your work phone so it would be easy for them to get your work address and start the garnishment process.

Did you ask them not to call you at work, that employer does not permit work calls? That is is the law....they CAN call you at work unless you specifically ask them not to.
