Don't Get Scammed
If you are contacted by a company regarding your Federal student loans, you should first verify that they are in fact a Federal student loan servicer through the U.S. Department of Education’s website.
Many scam companies claim to be “Student Loan Debt Relief Companies” and will ask you to pay them for services that a federal student loan servicer provides for FREE.
If you believe that you are a victim of a student loan scam, we encourage you to do the following:
- Contact your bank to stop future payments and reverse any previous payments
- Revoke your Power of Attorney, if previously granted
- Change your Federal Student Aid account login information
- Change your CornerStone account login information
- Contact CornerStone to resolve any issues with your account
- File a complaint against the debt-relief company through your state’s attorney general
