Not that long ago, I received a post card in the mail.  Initially I was not sure why I got it, and I thought it was junk mail.  Luckily I didn't throw it out.  I then got an email from the same place that sent the postcard.  It was a message letting me know, that I am eligible to receive a check from a settlement from a former holder of one of my student loans, Navient.  Perhaps some of you are still making payments on student loans, or are a student who took out some to go to college.
