Shawn

Where do I go to post a scam, fraud message about a company? Besides BBB.

Russ:

That depends on the nature of the scam, and what industry the company is in.

Shawn:

It's a University.

Shawn:

Enrollment agreement states "withdraw within the first 30 days of enrollment: 50% tuition refund." They are telling me I owe them the full amount, minus 800 - although the four people I talked to couldn't exactly say why they took off that 800 bucks. I went to the BBB website, and saw a few reports similiar to my complaint. Wondering where else I could post this on the internet.

Russ:

First demand a full accounting (a statement of your account) showing all credits and charges. You are entitled to that. Do that first, and let me know.

Shawn:

I've already done that and received it. What information would you like to know off of it? $3400 for tuition. Minus 800 (but doesn't indicate why and over the phone I got the statement "this isn't a refund, but you can look at it as one) total tuition: 2400. Pell grant for 1,077. Student Loan for 1,168. Total owed: 3400. Start date: Aug 22,07...notification of withdraw received: 12 Sept. Withdraw completed: 10/10/07. (apparently it takes an entire month to withdraw from two classes at this school.)

Russ:

They are ignoring the Pell and loan which offset your debt. This makes NO sense, at all. 30 years as an accountant, and I cannot figure out what they are saying.

Shawn:

I have four accountants in my family that looked at my statement. they told me to find a lawyer. I've asked to speak to a manager, a quality assurance specialist at the University - and each time I do - I get disconnected. A total of five times now. I reported them to BBB, and they said they would refund me in full, but received a letter yesterday saying I was 20 days past the due date for paying my account. I also called the lender - they haven't received any information concerning the refund of my tuition to them - and until they do, my account is supposed to be paid in three months. So Russ, do I call a lawyer? Do I pay it so it doesn't go to collections?

Shawn:

If they are ignoring the pell grant and the loan - the 1,168 load would have been returned to the loaner...whereas the pell grant would have been sent to me (which, from experience, usually occurs so that thought process is pretty logical in my opinion). By the way Russ, I really appreciate your comments on this.

Russ:

Sorry, but bed-time last night. I think that legal advice is on your agenda, here. This is incompetent accounting, sloppy controls, and unnecessary worry and work for you. You are very welcome, Dancer, anytime.

Shawn:

I'm really to the point where I'll have my lawyer take legal actions, even if I end up having to pay more in the long run (i.e. legal fees) to get my refunded tuition. I don't like being hosed and it is becoming abundently clear that's all that is happening here.
