If you are struggling to pay your student loans then you are the target of a ever-more popular scam. Many times a caller will solicit help with paying off student debt, as seven in ten students are in student debt, and will ask for a fee up-front. President and CEO of the Better Business Bureau Michelle Corey tells The Big Z to stop right there before going any further.

She also says that FASFA doesn't have any fee to apply and using FASFA can easily be done by the student looking to consolidate their debt. She urges to never give out numbers like your social security number or Financial Aid Identification number without personally knowing and trusting the person asking. If you think you are a victim of this scam call the Better Business Bureau at 314-645-3300 or follow the link at this story at AltonDailyNews.com.
