Colorado Technical University Online CTU Online AIU Online Attempt to collect a nonexistent debt Colorado Springs, Colorado
In May of this year I was contacted by a collection agency that identified itself as calling on behalf of CTU Online. It said it was trying to collect a debt of approximately five thousand dollars that I allegedly owed to CTU. Not having attended CTU since Fall of 2006, I challenged this debt and retained an attorney at my present school. The attorney contacted the collection agency with an order to turn over all evidence of the debt that I owed. The collection agency never replied. The attorney then recommended that I contact a credit agency such as Trans Union to see if the debt was recorded on my credit report, and I found that it was. The attorney contacted Trans Union, challenging the debt. In July I received a letter from Trans Union saying that the claim had been deleted from my credit report.
This was the consequence for my having attended CTU Online. I hope this helps if you are thinking about attending this online college.
