Debt Consolidation Scams Targeting College Grads! Don’t Fall for it

Hey there, wel­come back to ScamTV, where we help you spot and avoid scams. Today, we’re div­ing deep into a top­ic that affects many of you: debt con­sol­i­da­tion scams for col­lege debt. 🚨

🎓 What is Debt Con­sol­i­da­tion?
Debt con­sol­i­da­tion might sound like a life­saver if you’re jug­gling mul­ti­ple loans, but not all debt con­sol­i­da­tion ser­vices are cre­at­ed equal. Some are out­right scams designed to prey on your finan­cial stress.

đź’ˇ How Do These Scams Work?
These scams often promise to com­bine your mul­ti­ple stu­dent loans into one easy pay­ment with low­er inter­est rates. Sounds great, right? But here’s the catch: scam­mers can charge exor­bi­tant fees, or worse, steal your per­son­al infor­ma­tion and dis­ap­pear with­out a trace.

🚩 Red Flags to Watch For to Avoid Debt Con­sol­i­da­tion Scam

Upfront Fees: Legit­i­mate ser­vices usu­al­ly add fees to your new loan rather than demand­ing mon­ey upfront.
Guar­an­tees: Be wary of any­one who guar­an­tees they can low­er your inter­est rate or pay­ment amount.
Pres­sure Tac­tics: If they rush you into mak­ing a deci­sion, it’s a big red flag.
🔍 Real Sto­ries from Real Peo­ple
We’ve gath­ered sto­ries from peo­ple just like you who almost fell for these traps. Their expe­ri­ences can help you rec­og­nize and avoid sim­i­lar pit­falls. Lis­ten to their warn­ings and learn from their mis­takes.

🛡️ How to Pro­tect Your­self

Do Your Research: Look up reviews and check if the com­pa­ny is reg­is­tered with the Bet­ter Busi­ness Bureau.
Ask Ques­tions: Don’t be afraid to ask for detailed expla­na­tions and be sus­pi­cious if they can’t pro­vide them.
Con­sult a Finan­cial Advi­sor: A pro­fes­sion­al can offer advice tai­lored to your sit­u­a­tion.
