US Marshals make arrests over non-payment of student loans
Being behind on student loan payments in Texas could cost you more than your credit score. The US Marshals Service in Houston is arresting people who aren’t paying their federal student debt.Paul Aker said that seven deputy US Marshals showed up at his Houston home in combat gear.
He claims he was taken to federal court, where he signed a payment plan for the debt.
"It was totally mind-boggling," Aker said.
This is far from an isolated incident, a source told the station. It isn’t the first time Marshals have served someone for being behind on loans, and they are planning to serve between 1,200 and 1,500 other people who have student debt.
