Student Assist Network Scam Calls - Loan Forgiveness Program

An official voicemail from a woman named Janis James or Janet James who identified herself as agent #1691 calling from "The Student Assist Network" from telephone number 888-719-2635. Janis left me a voice message saying that she works on some type of student loan forgiveness program and if I would call her back she can help me with a "student aid forgiveness program" for my student aid loans, but that the program is a "first come first served" and limited, so she advised calling her back right away. But, I happen to know that these types of student forgiveness loans only come from official government agencies. So this is a total scam! Block and report the telephone number.

Student Assist Network Scam Calls - Loan Forgiveness Program

Here is a transcript of the voicemail:

"Hi this is Janis James from The student Assist Network, my agent id is 1691 and my number is 888-719-2635. Um, I'm just calling to let you know that your student aid is qualified for the forgiveness program, we may be able to grant you a partial or a full forgiveness package but I'd like you to know that this program has limited openings and in a first-come, first-served basis, so call me back soon to finalize the details and again my number is 888-719-2635. You could talk to me or any of the reps to finalize your file. Thank you."

      Yea I got the same exact voicemail and when I called I spoke to some guy, and went along with it, but then I asked who he was with and he said he was with the Student Advisory center. So then I asked if there was anyway to verify who he is and who he works for, and then he just says “good luck with your student loans” and hangs up... total scammer

    Me too. I got two VM's from two different people with two different ID Nos.

    Very official sounding. No machines, no foreign accents.

    I received TWO VM from them, two diff names and 'ID Numbers...' But the numbers were from diff area codes-seems spoofed.

    I got the same call

  • May 19, 2021 at 12:11 PM by an anonymous user from: McMinn, Athens, Tennessee, United States

    I received the exact same voicemail on my phone the number that it was calling from was a Phoenix, AZ number 602-877-0713... nothing like what the voicemail number leaves for you to call back. It’s like a recording spoofed from a different number... sounds like a scam to me.
