Beware the National Student Loan Help Scams

As many of our readers are aware, we assist people with their student loans. There are programs that are available to make student loan payments affordable. We help our clients evaluate whether they qualify for the programs and, if so, help decide what programs are best for them and even assist in preparing the applications to qualify. Recently I have begun hearing advertisements for national programs that offer a similar type assistance. They sound remarkably like the tax relief ads we all heard a few years ago — until they abruptly shut down (and in some famous cases, went bankrupt). They also sound a lot like the debt relief programs that were flooding the airwaves, which caused the Minnesota Attorney General and the legislature get involved in regulating these programs. While I have not yet explored how these guys work, I am betting that if the ads sound the same, so will the sales pitch. Make payments to us upfront and hope we come through for you before you run out of money!

If you have student loan payments that are budget busters, call us to see what we can do for you. Our fees are affordable and are not hidden. You may be amazed at what we can do for you.
