Washington announced favorable resolutions for consumers with six student loan debt adjustors that overcharged Washington state students and collected unlawful fees. The six loan adjustors will pay a total of $162,000 to refund Washington students for illegal charges and an additional $56,000 for the Attorney General’s costs and attorney’s fees, as well as monitoring and future enforcement of the Consumer Protection Act. Student loan debt adjustment firms offer to help students fill out and submit paperwork to the U.S. Department of Education to consolidate their federal student loans. But information about repayment options and help consolidating federal student loans is available — for free — directly from the U.S. Department of Education. All 346 Washington student victims will receive full refunds of the money they paid to the various companies. The Attorney General’s Office will notify eligible consumers and distribute the refunds directly to them in July 2016. WA
