Hey there, welcome back to ScamTV, where we help you spot and avoid scams. Today, we’re diving deep into a topic that affects many of you: debt consolidation scams for college debt. 🚨

🎓 What is Debt Consolidation?
Debt consolidation might sound like a lifesaver if you’re juggling multiple loans, but not all debt consolidation services are created equal. Some are outright scams designed to prey on your financial stress.

💡 How Do These Scams Work?
These scams often promise to combine your multiple student loans into one easy payment with lower interest rates. Sounds great, right? But here’s the catch: scammers can charge exorbitant fees, or worse, steal your personal information and disappear without a trace.

🚩 Red Flags to Watch For

Upfront Fees: Legitimate services usually add fees to your new loan rather than demanding money upfront.
Guarantees: Be wary of anyone who guarantees they can lower your interest rate or payment amount.
Pressure Tactics: If they rush you into making a decision, it’s a big red flag.
