Private Student Loans / Re: Private Student Loan Attorney a Scam?

You would have to read the cancellation agreement. Typically, if you don't pay, it gets cancelled, but you have to read the agreement you signed.

Hi

I had a similar thing happen to me recently. They gave me payment options and I gave them a lot of info. No payment has been taken out of my account yet and if worse comes to worse I could cancel my account and open a new one. But should I be worried that I E-signed this document saying I would send them monthly payments of $107 for 96 months? Or can I cancel this contract at anytime?

Student Loan Scams / Re: Certified Document Center Scam?!

Yes it is a scam in my opinion. I feel  it is not what you are promised in the beginning. And in the end they will use all their lawyer jargon against you when you call them on it. It is my fault for not doing more research and reading between the lines I guess and it is embarrassing.  You can do it all yourself and save money. Year later I'm left with headache, wasted hours on phone and I'm  $900 short. I signed up year ago, spend money and year later I still am not where I was promised with my paperwork. My consolidation just got approved in February after my multiple calls and reaching out (mind u I signed up with them August 2016). Of course they blame delays on Fed Loan, YOU, misunderstanding, and oh yeah mainly YOU! Don't do it! You have enough debt!!!

Techincally not a "scam" because they did provide a service, but they mislead you into thinking you need the service.

It's like if someone said you need to pay someone to fill up your gas for you. So the person fills up with 70 octane, water filled gas because they don't care, and they charge you $700 to fill up.

I ended up losing $700 and having my loans under one horrible loan company based on all the reviews. I then cancelled the consolidation and stuck with my original service provider, Great Lakes.

You can consolidate your loans for free! Look it up.

Has anyone heard of or gone with Assure Direct Services? Is it legit or just another scam?

You should find out about the debt you owe - not about the processing fees. Do you owe money to someone? Did you ever take out a loan? You would know that.

Ask for proof of the debt...in writing if you feel it's necessary.
