Forum Post: Student loans are fraud. You didn't get a loan.

When a "loan" is given, no money from the lender is involved. The "loan agreement " is actually a negotiable instrument that is signed by the "borrower". It is like a check. It is immediately cashed by the "lender", for the full amount. It was created by the signature of the "borrower", but no actual "loan" took place. and the lender is immediately paid in full. When "borrower" repays the "loan" he/she is actually paying it for a 2nd time, plus interest. No money from the "lender" was ever involved. This is fraud, and fraud voids all contracts. Also, to have a valid contract both parties must put up something of value, this is called 'consideration'. If both parties do not put up something of value this also voids any supposed contract. This is called "fractional reserve banking".Do your research, and challenge the alleged debt on grounds of fraud and no consideration. Good luck!

There actually is merit in this argument, and just about any other, like housing, all throughout this economy.

Almost everything they do is illegal on basic grounds.

I don't think it works like that, my friend. It's a promissory note. I'm not a economics whiz, so I'll let those who are explain it better. A word of warning: you're probably about to be called a moron and an idiot. Be prepared.
