Beware of student loan payment scams

Student loan payments start again Oct. 1, and now scams are back on the rise.
Here are some tips on how you can avoid those scams.
  • Never give away your Federal Student Aid ID login information.
  • Don't trust anyone who contacts you promising debt relief or loan forgiveness.
And keep in mind, you'll never need to pay to sign up for any programs to lower your loan payments.
