Why Did My Student Loan Get Transferred?

A few months ago, I logged onto the website for my student loan in order to check on my balance—when I found that I did not have one. Suddenly, the $12,000+ I owed had gone down to $0. I’m suspicious by nature, so rather than celebrating that some secret patron had paid off the rest of my education, I started wondering how this obvious mistake could possibly mess up my financial plans. I put in a call to my federal loan-servicing center, and I was told that my loan had been transferred to MOHEL...
