Student loan debt is one of the most pressing financial issues facing young Americans today. With the cost of tuition skyrocketing, more and more students are taking out loans to pay for their education, leading to an unprecedented amount of debt. Unfortunately, some scam companies are making matters even worse for borrowers by promising "student loan debt relief." These companies prey on distressed borrowers, claiming to offer thousands of dollars in savings on student debt while charging illegal upfront fees and falsely claiming expertise or a relationship with the Department of Education.
The result? Borrowers find themselves with even more debt and less time to avoid financial distress or default. With such dire consequences, it's crucial to know the warning signs of student loan debt relief scams. Some red flags to watch out for include pressure to pay high up-front fees, promises of immediate loan forgiveness or debt cancellation, demands that you sign a "third party authorization," and requests for your Federal Student Aid PIN.
