The FCC issued a consumer alert on Nov. 3, 2022, announcing the robocall response team is warning consumers about a potential uptick in student loan debt robocalls in the wake of the recent announcement of nationwide federal student loan debt relief. The team said consumers should be aware there is no fee to apply for student loan debt relief and that applications are accepted only at StudentAid.gov/DebtRelief. The FCC also issued an enforcement advisory to remind voice service providers of their role in protecting consumers by combatting illegal robocalls aggressively, especially student loan robocalls.
