This was my Google review after I suspected a scam:
"PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!!
I was contacted by Cesar from Allied Enrollment Centers last week. Everything he was explaining me about being qualified for Federal Student Loan Forgiveness Program at first sounded amazing. I applied for it and he told me in a few minutes that application was approved (although, I wasn't employed by public service entity), and half of my debt was forgiven, for the other half he helped me to set up a payment plan, which was 10 times more affordable than my initial plan through my servicer. He also asked me for my password from my FSA ID account, and asked not to change it, gave me quite legitimate explanation. He also asked me not to contact my student loan servicer before my first payment with Allied will go through, given another legit explanation. Then he sent me a form to e-sign, and another one to provide him with my bank account info, and I felt the happiest person in the world!
Then in couple of days I receive e-mail from U.S. Department of Education, about potentially suspicious activity on my federal student loan account. That got my attention, and I called FSA office of Department of Education, to have them check and verify if Allied Enrollment Centers is in fact a legit company. I was told, they are not aware of such. They checked, this company isn't accredited by Better Business Bureau (and normally if it's legit, it would be). I also called my official student loan servicer. They also confirmed that know nothing about legitimacy of this Center. Both confirmed that my FSA ID account password is only for me to know, and no legitimate entity would ever ask for it.
I went ahead and changed my password on my FSA ID account. I red the agreement I signed with Allied, where I saw some weird phrasing (see attached photo). I also found explanation on who qualifies for public service loan forgiveness program on my FSA ID account page, and I didn't see I was qualified. I called back Cesar again to see if he could answer my questions. Not only I didn't receive clear explanation how they approved my application, or why they need to have my password from my FSA ID account, I also didn't get an answer to how they're authorized to approve application for federal loan forgiveness program while not being sponsored or endorsed by any government agency, but yet will be receiving my payments. He never clearly answered my questions, but only was insisting on giving him my new password from my FSA ID account.
SO PLEASE, DO YOUR RESEARCH FIRST! AND IF SOMETHING SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.... IT PROBABLY IS!
I HOPE THIS HELPS...
We are so sorry you had a less than ideal experience.
We searched our system to reach out to you, but had no record of a "Bianka Roberts"
Regardless, we did want to address your complaint.
BBB accreditation is something we are working toward, however it is not the sole measure to whether or not
a company is legitimate and honest.
A quick google search will reveal that we are backed by our local chamber of commerce in Newport Beach
and have 250+ testimonials on our Google business profile from real borrowers that have shared their
experience working with us to resolve their federal student loan debt.
We hope that you can give us a call to allow us the opportunity to make it right.
