I recently received a phone call from a woman from “Student Loan Relief Counseling.” They said they could have my loans invalidated with my loan providers, and then I would pay them instead of the original lender. In exchange, I’d pay them half of my current balance. I’m obviously tempted to give this a try, but I held off for now because they asked to share my Social Security number over the phone, which I thought was unusual.
Is this sketchy? Has anyone heard of this company?
