Reply To: Identifying Scams – Student Loans
We’ve partnered with Debt.com to help match our readers with reputable businesses willing and able to help with their financial problems, including student loan debt, within our Solutions Center.
You can fill out the form here to get started (there’s also a phone number you can call directly): https://www.moneytalksnews.com/solutions/student-loans/ The companies still employ the standard sales tactics (calling you and pitching their services), but they should all be legit. If you find one that isn’t through that page, let us know immediately.
Another great resource is the website of the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, or NFCC, located here: https://www.nfcc.org. There you can find a reputable credit counseling organization who can help with most financial situations (they can help you do everything from build a budget to pay down debt). You can read about the standards they require of their members here: https://www.nfcc.org/about-us/why-work-with-an-nfcc-agency/accreditation-standards-of-excellence/
