Is Hardship Relief Program a Scam? Loan Offer Call

The Hardship Relief Program call below appears to be a scam targeting people who are facing financial difficulties. The FTC is asking the public to be wary of any loan offered over the phone like the Hardship Relief Program. According to the FTC, any loan offered over the phone for an advance fee is illegal. Loan robocalls are almost always an illegal scam. Legitimate lenders will never call you on the phone to initiate a new loan.

A Hardship Relief Program Call (Transcript)

This is Faith from the Hardship Relief Program touching base with you concerning a Facebook inquiry we recently received. Today is Wednesday, June 14th. I wanted to follow up with you about your recent approval for our Hardship Relief Program. This program aims to eliminate credit card debts, collections, personal and payday loans and even medical bills. Your approval code is, let me confirm, 38947.

This approval is time sensitive and valid only for the next 24 hours, so finalizing your information promptly is crucial. Kindly return my call at your earliest convenience on 682-338-6477. And be sure to mention your HR pre-approval code of 389427. To reiterate, the correct number is 682-338-6477. We're keen to help you with this process. Enjoy your day!

Loan scammers may pressure you into paying immediately. They often offer large sums of money without ever checking your payment history. Legitimate lenders will always want to know about your credit history and past payment. Loan scam robocalls skip the history; they're just interested in getting to your money or your personal information.
