I Thought Student Debt Relief Looked Legitimate?

“Dear Steve,

I was looking for refinancing and when I typed in student debt, this popped up. It looked like a legitimate company and I gave them all of my information including my fafsa pin.

The name of the company is I gave them $260.00 and authorized them to take it out three times and then they said that it will take about 40 days to complete.

The Answer

Dear Janet,

The best place to start your search for student loan help is to read The Ultimate Guide to Dealing With Student Loans You Can’t Afford.

Just because you can enroll in one of the government student loan programs does not mean it is a smart thing for you to do.

And if you read the guide and decide to move ahead with qualifying for one of the programs, you can do it for free and save the money to use to pay down your loans instead.

Maybe after doing all the homework you might decide to hire someone to do this for you, then would be the time to make a commitment to hire someone, not before.

I went and did a site audit of and found out in Florida the company that is actually behind it is not registered to use the name Student Debt Relief. It’s not even their name. Their real name is Debt Relief Pros.

And the address the company uses comes back as an apartment.

See my review here.

Big Hug!
