As many families deal with college financing this summer, the Better Business Bureau reports an increase in fraudulent texts, emails and voicemails about loans.

  1. I get 2 to 3 of these calls a day. I block every time. They’ll keep calling with different numbers.

  2. Government should take strict and tight action on such type of activities…

  3. Get a call from them everyday talking about some student loan everyday

  4. ALL OF IT IS A SCAM!! If you can’t get a job will they refund you? Who is the one really getting rich? Not you!

  5. What’s sad is that since I changed my phone number, I’ve been receiving these calls for the past two years.
    They claim that I must act quickly and it’s urgent, even though this is been going on for two years.
    And yet, more interestingly is that the voicemails are all the same script. Lol

    1. Turn your phone to mute or vibrate. Then wait for them to leave a message on your voice mail. Chances are they will hang up. This way if you dont recognise the caller it goes to voice mail to examine later when you save or delete these messages . or better still, check what time they call you and put your phone on air plane mode and turn off your phone during those times they choose to call you. I remember when MCI used to anoy me with friend’s and family plans….

  8. I got this call from a company called student loan doc based in Nevada . In the USA there are scams why isn’t Biden taking action on these scumbags . To me he has failed already

  9. American voice on the voicemail, when you call back you talk to an Indian you than know it’s a scam
