student debt predatory lending scam

On the excellent MarginalRevolution econ blog

The US federal government makes money on lending to naive students, and this money-making happens even if students default on that loan, since the government has ways of forcing payment that private lenders don’t. Garnishing wages, revoking professional licenses, and other nasty steps. And declaring bankruptcy won’t erase the financial liability either.
