Hey all.  I posted this on another thread https://forums.thecollegeinvestor.com/index.php?topic=1508.0.  If that's not allowed I'm sure an admin will edit for me.

I also made the same mistake with Clarity Solutions Center a while back and feel like the biggest dummy ever.  I got all the way to the point where I had to sign things before I noticed, but I didn't sign anything.  I did on the other hand give them my ssn#, DL#, bank account, email, and some other personal information that I never should have.  That being said I have not had anything sketchy appear as of yet, but I did the following immediately after the event just in case:

  • Contacted my federal student loan provider and made them aware of what happened, and that I had given no consent to make any changes to my account

  • Closed the bank account that I gave them

  • Froze my credit with all three credit bureaus

  • Purchased an identity theft protection service

  • Contacted the social security administration and confirmed there have been no requests for a new card.  I have been doing this monthly.

  • Had a bit of a psychotic break.


It took me about a month or two to calm down, but I'm an anxious person as is.  Hope this information is comforting to someone.
