Case Summary

SLAC (also doing business as Aspyre), Navloan, Student Loan Assistance Center, and Adam Owens -- three California-based student loan debt relief companies and their owner -- have agreed to be permanently banned from the debt relief business in order to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that they falsely promised to lower or eliminate consumers’ student loans for an illegal upfront fee. The FTC also alleged that the companies and Owens failed to disclose that they paid consumers for positive Better Business Bureau (BBB) reviews.
