A class action lawsuit filed against student loan collection company, the National Collegiate Student Loan Trust, and the Law Offices of Patenaude & Felix APC, alleges that they used deceptive practices to collect student loan debts in California.

Lead plaintiff Dawn Zoerb alleges in the class action that in June 2013, after she fell behind on student loan payments, her debt was transferred to National Collegiate and then to Patenaude for collection. Zoerb claims that Patenaude filed a collection lawsuit in California debt court on behalf of National Collegiate but failed to identify the original creditor in the lawsuit.
