A reader recently inquired in the student loan assistance company NSLFC Financial Freedom was really a member of the Association for Student Loan Relief as they indicated.
Well the NSLFC website at fed-help.org does display the AFSLR logo and also the logo for the American Fair Credit Council (AFCC). A look at AFCC could not locate any such member and AFSLR denies any membership. – Source
Not a great confidence boost.
So I went to find more information on the domain name. DomainTools says the domain was registered on July 7, 2016 and it owned by:
Student Help Center
3435 Wilshire Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90010
However the fed-help.org website lists:
6464 Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, California 90028
Both addresses may be associated with virtual offices/mail drops.
The State of California had no registration for any business by that name.
I did however discover the same address that created this site is also related to: collogeclosure.org, forgivemyloan.info, loanforgive.info, and studenthelpcenter.info.
Up until November 11, 2016 the domain name fed-help.org was owned by an Alex Neal of Los Angeles.
I have no clue what is going on here but I will use some emails I found and ask the company to provide an update and clarification.
I would recommend that anyone considering using such a company should read the following free guides.
