Types of student loan fraud
The United States government guarantees billions of dollars in student loans every year to students pursuing a higher education. Some of the most common types of student loans include Stafford loans and GradPlus loans. This money is distributed to students by the Department of Education under the Higher Education Act.
Some of the ways people attempt to fraudulently obtain such funding include:
- Students falsifying academic credentials to obtain a student loan
- Academic institutions helping students falsify academic credentials to obtain a student loan
- Lending agencies operating illegal student aid scams designed to falsely obtain student loan funding
These are just a few examples of student loan fraud. Whatever the circumstances of your case, it’s critical that you have an attorney on your side who can discretely investigate your claim and make sure your rights are respected.

As a result, the government offers a financial reward to whistleblowers that expose such wrongdoing.
