While I was stationed in Turkey Navy Federal gave a $20,000 consolidation loan and opened a line of credit for $6,000 in my name to my ex-wife. I had no knowledge of this and certainly didn’t approve of this. When I confronted Navy Federal about the situation I was told that they were going to investigate however I never received the results of the investigation and I’m still stuck with this $26,000 debt. My credit score went from high 600s to low 500s even doing as low as 452. I want to know if I can sue Navy Federal for allowing this to happen and for the way it affected my life.
