In February 2018, the Federal Trade Commission filed a complaint against American Financial Benefits Center as part of an ongoing crackdown on student debt relief fraud — a joint enforcement effort called “Operation Game of Loans.”
The FTC’s complaint targets three other defendants: AmeriTech Financial and Financial Education Benefits Center, connected businesses accused of the same deceptive practices, and Brandon Demond Frere, the founder and majority owner of all three companies.
American Financial Benefits Center also does business as AFB and AF Student Services.
