    so, I did also recieve a call from these people.  Was mildly offended by their request for my social security number upfront, so I said:  "Okay, but this is not the way we are starting this conversation, so gave them my address, birthday (which was probably stupid, but hey, they can find that other places, publicly) and they indeed were able to look up my personal information including that they knew the exact amounts for my loans as well as the fact the they were in deferrment.  Their guess was that someone else gave them my phone number as primary for their account.  While I don't know about the phone number not matching that on the site, but outgoing phone banks for large corporations are often offset, etc.  If you doubt its authenticity then call the damned DOE and stop slandering the rest of us who are trying to help.  I've come to realize that they are probably legit.  And if not, they have enough information on me already (including the last 4 digits of my SSN, that I'm prolly screwed anyways.) My 2 cents.

    THIS IS A SCAM!! DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER! It's NOT the Dept. of Ed. It's NOT a government site! It is very misleading, as they intend. If you have collage age kids, or kids who graduated from college, they are on "a list". Hence, it sounds legit when they say they have info about your Student Records. IT IS A PHISHING SCAM. Don't be fooled by these evil people! Anyway, NEVER give out any personal info or your SS# to anyone on the phone!

    You have to give the scammer credit...When the well-written, coherent reviews didn't completely assuage our healthy skepticism, they turn to half-literate posts, thinking 'maybe THIS will make them think it's real'!I wouldn't pay that Stafford, Shelley.  Your school obviously failed you, and you should sue your educational institution for your money back.

    They try to make it sound legitimate but are poor at answering the phone.   The firsd thing they asked for was my social security number.  As soon as I said no, they hung up on me.

    A recorded message in a female voice from the United States Dept of Education tells us that we need to call them or go online for a very important message regarding our student loan.We don't have a student loan...

    Just another scammer trying to collect money via misrepresentation.. These peple just hang up. A legit company would identify themselves, the company or organization they represent, and the reason for the call without leaving identifying details, or making threats. Don't provide any identifying information, or agree to any payments. Tell them if they are legitimate, to write a letter to the address of record, and send it certified mail! Don't verify any data they may try to have you verify.

    this number is legit...i called the number off my direct loan mail and they said it was the 24 hour number. I was worried myself because I gave my information out to the 18008480981 number like a dumbass. It is legit and they said that you may not have a loan through them to contact you but someone that does have a loan with them might have put you under as a contact person.

    Since loans are assigned a number, why are you not asking for that number to verify if they are the people you want?

    The 1800 848 0981 number is NOT a scam. I received a call from them today and I gave out all my information and they told me to disregard the call. I then got worried it was a scam because I was still in school and should not be getting calls from them until I am out and need to start making payments so I then looked off a direct loans paper I had and called a number off of it and I asked the lady about that number and she said it was their 24 hour number and that someone may put you under a contact person and they might call you even if you do not have a loan through them.

    I did not answer as it was an 800 number. Voice message was left - it was for my daughter in regards to her student loans.

    This phone number is not part of a scam. It is the direct loan servicing center. It is mentioned on the OIG website (office of Inspector general) for the department of education https://wdcrobcolp01.ed.gov/CFAPPS/OIG/englishhotlineform.cfm. (notice the .gov which indicates its a government website). In addition it is also a phone number which was on a bill for direct loan servicing which was part of a complaint in Ohio. ftp://data1.cco.state.oh.us/2005/C2005-04888- ... 001008257-1.pdf. Once again this is a legit number. If you do not have loans out, someone you know might have loans out and used you as a reference. Just relax.

    This phone number belongs to the Direct Loan Servicing Center Collections Department. It is not a scam and if you ask you can use other means to identify you other than your Social Security number. The number is mentioned on the OIG (office of inspector general) website for the department of education. https://wdcrobcolp01.ed.gov/CFAPPS/OIG/englishhotlineform.cfm (notice the .ed.gov in the web address). In addition the number is included in documents in a complaint which was found on the state of Ohio's website in case you needed alternate confirmation. ftp://data1.cco.state.oh.us/2005/C2005-04888- ... 001008257-1.pdfTheir tactics are very shady, however with a little investigation, they are on the up and up. You may not have loans out, but someone you know may have used you as a reference to get loans which may explain why you are receiving the calls. Be careful who you give your personal info to if you dont want people to use you as a reference without you knowing.
