I heard a radio advertisement for a company that could consolidate all my loans. When I called, what struck me so strange is all the personal information questions they were asking me.. Also, that I had to sign a document titled “Limited power of attorney”!! I hate to admit this, but the lady was being overly nice and this caused me to become suspicious. The name of the company is AP Student Loan Relief. While I was on the phone with the lady (Liz) I asked her for the website, and when I went there, it was not sophisticated (a bad flag). I went to Sunbiz.org to look up the company name and it had been incorporated as an LLC in June, 2013 (another flag). Then I looked up online reviews on the company and found this website with very similar experiences such as mine. Admittedly, they were not charging me a terrible amount for consolidating my loans, but I guess this is something I can do on my own without incurring more debt than I already have!! I feel really stupid because I should know better than to give out so much personal information over the phone to perfect strangers!!! Live and learn I guess.. Hope this helps others not get scammed..
