Complaint Review: Ayusa International
Ayusa International600 California Street, FL 10 San Francisco, California U.S.A.
Ayusa International Global Exchange Host a student with Ayusa and you end up resposible for the bills so dont host with Ayusa San Francisco California
We had a contract signed with the one student, Yola Seeger which we had no problems with.
The second student, Merel Leemans, the one in question was removed for no reason, prematurely, prior to completing her term, and prior to being able to pay all her obligations, so we had to pay her unpaid bills. These were for a cell phone contract, stolen cell phone, cleaning bill, 24 hour fitness bill.
Ayusa told us to send in the bill and we would get paid back right away. We did this over a week ago mailed certified mail, we have called to follow up, and emailed, we get no reply at all, no call back, nothing. Bills totalled $515.28
We complained to them and to BBB, and Ayusa claimed we signed a contract, and they were not obligated to pay her bills.
There was never a legally signed contract for Merel Leemans, signed by neither my wife or I, and the other contract was allowed to be signed by their representative without me being there, forging my name.
As you know, the U.S. does not allow host families to get paid for hosting exchange students, and host families are not supposed to have to pay for these kids bills, other than room and board, and food.
We have sent copies of all bills, and Ayusa says us, a host family, who gave our time has to pay for their student's bills.
They took this child out of our house, for no reason given, and all we want to end this matter is the money we are out for the bills incurred.
