More About The National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts
The National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts (e.g., “National Collegiate Student Loan Trust 2005-3,” “National Collegiate Student Loan Trust 2007-2,” etc.) are investment vehicles created by First Marblehead, a Massachusetts company that concentrates on education lending. From 1996 through 2007, First Marblehead purportedly bought student loans from lenders including Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, and a bank now owned by Citizens Bank.
It then transferred the loans, in batches, to trusts, like the ones named above, that it created – of which there are known to be at least twenty four. These trusts then sold bonds that were backed by the student loans to bondholders. The trusts would collect the loan payments from the various student-borrowers and would pay interest to the bondholders. In 2013 Moody’s Investors Service, a recognized bond rater, said it expected losses to reach as high as fifty percent in fifteen of the National Collegiate trusts it examined. (Does any of this sound like a Ponzi scheme of some sort?)
National Collegiate trusts have reportedly been among the most active in suing student-borrowers. Since 2011, they have filed thousands of lawsuits in several States (averaging several suits filed each day). They have now set their sights on student-borrowers in New York State, utilizing the notorious debt-collection law firm, Rubin & Rothman, LLC, and have begun suing student-debtors here.
The combination of an apparently exploitive outfit like the National Collegiate trusts with a law firm like Rubin & Rothman appears to be a recipe for disaster. Student-debtors in New York have already begun complaining that they have received collection notices from Rubin & Rothman seeking payment of a debt allegedly owed to one of the National Collegiate trusts, only to learn immediately thereafter that Rubin & Rothman had sued them – allegedly without ever having served them with process (Rubin & Rothman, like many debt-collection law firms, has been embroiled in legal problems stemming from “gutter service,” a term describing a process server’s intentional act of fraud by swearing that papers were served when in fact they were not) – and default judgments were entered against the unsuspecting student-borrowers.
Student-debtors are challenging the National Collegiate trusts in court, and judges in Ohio, Florida, and Kentucky have already found that the trusts have failed to prove they even own the debts. In California, a group of people are seeking class-action status for a law suit against National Collegiate trusts for suing them to collect on student loans without identifying the original lender, a violation of California debt-collection law. National Collegiate has denied the allegations in court filings. Litigation can be expected to follow in New York, both against National Collegiate and Rubin & Rothman, if the preliminary reports are correct.
