Blac Chyna Scheme Influences Students To Get Involve In A Fraud ‘Student Forgiveness Loan’ Scam?

By Conan K.

Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian's breakup drama last December caused a havoc on her Instagram account. Despite the issue, Blac Chyna still remained peerless in the social media community. Weeks later, Blac Chyna sent a very unacceptable message for all her 10.6 million followers. The caption noted in her post that students could get rid of their loans if they would engage in the promoted activity.

Teen Vogue reported that the deleted post last Dec. 21, contained the caption: “Get rid of your student loans now!! Before it’s too late and Obama is out of office. I need all of my followers to CALL 1-855-578-3444 and qualify in less than 5 mins hurry!!! IT WORKS!” Of course, the posted advertisement is a scam.

In addition, The Student Relief Center, which was mentioned in the post is one of the companies which offer student loans and advertise their agency through the social media. Her post was specified to pertain to “student forgiveness loans” scams that are surfacing the media today. Student Forgiveness Loan Scams charge students for something that could be done as free. The aforementioned Student Relief Center is one of the runners for this typical scam for students struggling to pay for their fees in school.

More so, after conducting a thorough investigation on the matter, Buzz Feed revealed the reason why Blac Chyna posted the dubious message on her Instagram. Mike Heller, the president and CEO of Talent Resource, a celebrity lifestyle marketing company stated on Buzzfeed that types of scam companies like Student Relief Center probably might make Chyna earn as much as $35,000 for her supposedly effective way to promote the company. Blac Chyna and the company have not yet responded on the issue until today.

These widespread scams charge an amount of money from helpless students and just disappear without performing a service at all. Thus, Student Aid advises students to watch the video below to distinguish the scammers and to stay scam free.
