I was called by United Relief Center claiming if I consolidated my loan with them, my student loans would be forgiven after 40 months.
All I had to do was pay $49 a month plus interest for 40 months. What they did was take a loan out in my name with a 3rd party entity (Equitable Acceptance) and now I owe them. What happened was, Equitable Acceptance paid United Relief Center in full for the loan so got their money.
Equitable Acceptance is out that money and want it from me. I call United Relief Center and they say “Hey, we don’t have anything to do with this; you need to contact United Relief Center. They have your loan”. So I was really scammed here and feel like an idiot!
