I wanted to get my masters degree but the demands of my full time job did not allow it. I found CTU online to be interesting due to the fact that they "claimed" to be part of the actual CTU. I quickly enrolled and signed papers. I enrolled in my first class which I got an A. I didnt feel I learned anything but I figured it was just an easy management class since I have been in management(My Major was Information Systems/Security).
I got to my next class, and I started to catch on to what this school was. They make you verify your paper for authenticity. Problem is that if you reference alot of sources, your authenticity score gets worse. The school's standard is 30% max of sited sources. I decided to test this theory out. I started copying papers from other people and things and I would get 75% , 95%. And I would still get an A.
I finally decided that this was enough and wanted to unenroll. When that time came, I could not get ahold of anyone. I emailed, called, and I did everything. I signed onto the class to tell the teacher I was withdrawing from the school. I continued to call and it wasnt until I took the school off of my fasfa before they could take anymore money that they called me. They tried to charge me $200+ dollars for signing on and "Demanded" payment. They threatened to sue me. I told them to please be my guest.
After a month, a collection agency started calling me asking me to pay. I told the agency that I will pay on one condition. That I see something in writing that I signed say that I agree to pay x amount of dollars for signing onto the school before unenrolling. They guy said ok. Called back a month later and asked me to pay again. I told him exactly what I told him before. He said that I should call the school. I told that It wasnt my job to prove it, but its on CTU. And the fact is that they might be representing a fraudulent company trying to get money from me. If they continued to call me without emailing, faxing, or regular mailing me something saying that I agreed to pay this, I will file for harassment, write to the BBB, and possible sue.
I have not heard a peep out of them since. It used to be on my credit report, but it magically is removed.
