You don’t have to pay someone to get an extension on your student loan payments.
The state’s consumer protection division is warning people about potential coronavirus-related scams. DTACP’s Lara Sutherlin says one scam involves calls or emails that claim they can get people a break on their student loan payments. Sutherlin says it’s a scam because anyone with a federally qualified loan is getting an automatic extension on their payments.
She’s also warning about people who claim they can erase student debt because of the pandemic.
