Grieving Father Struggles to Repay Dead Son's Massive Student Loans
Continued from previous page
Seemingly the only party who knows — and is obligated to tell Reynoso — about this debt is the servicer, ACS Education Services.
Citing privacy reasons, ACS declined to disclose any specifics about the loans to ProPublica, even with Reynoso’s full consent. Three weeks ago, Francisco Reynoso himself sent a letter to ACS asking who currently holds the loans, but he has received no response.
ACS is a subsidiary of Xerox, so ProPublica put in several calls there. Given more than a full week to respond, Xerox’s corporate communications team has yet to provide a response to queries about when Reynoso can expect basic information about his son’s loans, including the amount he owes and the name of the company that now owns the debt.
