Investigating deceiving student debt relief calls


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A call that sounds legitimate is targeting people with student loan debt in KELOLAND, saying that your debt could be “wiped out.”

“I’m with the Federal Student Loan Advocates and since we had this recent government shutdown back in January and February, I wanted to let you know that you can now use the William D. Ford Act to have the balance of your loans wiped out, and um, all your future payments halted.”

That’s just part of tonight’s report, when you’ll also hear someone who said his name was Trevor.

Angela Kennecke investigates the deception behind the promises of wiping out student loan debt, coming up later tonight on KELOLAND Weekend News at 10 p.m.
