All Department Employees are eligible for Public Loan Forgiveness, Scam (8-9-18)

There is a scam circulating around campus about loan forgiveness. This is a scam in which the scammer is posing as the university offering loan forgiveness. The scammer is using Employee Benefits are their name, but using reducemyloan@aol.com or studentloanadvisor@aol.com as the email. Since the email did not come from a VCU Service account this is a scam.

If you have received this email please delete it.

Trump’s budget could end public service loan forgiveness for school employees

We specialize in helping nonprofit, public school & government employees to qualify for the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. We also help to lower payments, and provide default relief. We encourage all eligible Athletic Department staff to enroll in this program while it is still available.

Through the College Cost Reduction and Access Act of 2007, Congress created this program to encourage individuals to enter and continue to work in public service jobs. Eligible borrowers may qualify for forgiveness of the remaining balance due on their eligible federal student loans after they have made 120 income driven payments on those loans while employed full time as public service employees.

We have assisted employees of YMCA, YWCA, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, United Way, Salvation Army, The US Departments of Justice, Commerce, Transportation and Defense, Miami Dade schools, the Colorado District Attorneys Office, and the LA Public Defenders Office.

We would be happy to research your loan status. We do not charge a fee to help you determine your best repayment options. Please pass along this message to anyone who we may be able to assist.
