Loan relief scam costs man $900



JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — A man reported Dec. 1 that an organization claiming to be a student loan relief company swindled him out of $900.

The man told police that in April, he was contacted by the organization on the phone. He said the company and caller seemed legitimate because the representative had the man’s full name, address, school history and loan amount. In return, the man provided the caller his Social Security number and bank information.

After several months of payments, totaling $900, the man decided to check the legitimacy of the caller. He called the company and was told that no payments from him for his loans had been received.

The man said he immediately called his bank to close his account and froze his credit.
