FTC charges operators of student loan debt relief schemes
The Federal Trade Commission announced yesterday it has charged the operators of two similar student loan debt relief schemes, and a financing company that assisted them, with bilking millions of dollars from consumers. The defendants allegedly charged illegal upfront fees that they led consumers to believe went toward consumers’ student loans, and falsely promised that their services would permanently lower or even eliminate consumers’ loan payments or balances. The defendants also signed customers up for high-interest loans to pay the fees without making required disclosures.
