Loan Collection Scams
Our student borrowers are receiving phone calls from (646) 461-2206 stating that a complaint has been filed against their name regarding federal loan taxes and the caller is identifying themselves as Federal Law Enforcement.
This is a scam. Do not return the phone calls.
Be aware phone collection scams are ongoing and seem to be increasing. If suspicious calls are received regarding your outstanding federal loans or any debt with WSU, please ask for proof of debt before agreeing to payment or providing any personal information.
