On February 7, 2018, this company was sued by the Federal Trade Commission for practices related to their student loan debt relief operation. The United States District Court entered a Preliminary Injunction Order on November 29, 2018, and appointed a Receiver to take possession and control of American Financial Benefits Center d/b/a AFB and AF Student Services, AmeriTech Financial, and Financial Education Benefits Center. The Receiver conducted an investigation, issued a report to the Court, and has permanently suspended operations of the businesses.

We recommend that you immediately contact your student loan servicer. A list of student loan servicers can be found at: For free information about repaying your federal student loans, go to

The Receiver has established a webpage with information about the lawsuit which will be periodically updated.

However, we pride ourselves in providing value in saving time for consumers to maneuver everything just as a tax preparation specialist charges fees for its services, even though consumers can complete their documents on their own.

That is why we charge a fee if you work with us. We do not make any loan payments on your behalf and the loans remain in your name. We do not operate/function as a loan servicer in any way. We do not receive payment until after you are accepted into one of the Department of Education’s programs and make your first payment on your loan. Learn more…
