in the begining of 2002 i signed to go to this school. after only a week or two of "classes" i decided it wasnt worth my time. i had to stand in the halls for class. their were no supplies to work from . and no teacher to teach the classes. i chose to be discharged from the school and signed all the apropriate paper work. i was told being that i was being discharged from the school befor the "cut off" period i would not be charged for any tuiton.

several months later i started receiving calls from collectors about the school loans. im thinking to myself at this time "what loans". so i called the school to find out what was going on. its seems that the school had convienly misplaced my discharge paperwork and had me enrolled for a period of approx. 2 months.being that i was moving around alot at this time. i had no paper work to clearify this error. and the school was " not showing any record of my discharge". i ask for copyies of all the paper work only to find myself waiting to get nothing from them. the more i called the less anyone was willing to talk to me. as i tried over the past few years to explain to the collectors of this loan . this loan is fraudulant. their answer was and still is simply " its not our problem...you owe this money.. now pay".

they have taken my income tax for this loan for the past 4 years . the collectors are reluctant to send me any paper work involved in this loan...as is the school. i have disputed the collection on my credit report however the damage is done. my credit is destroyed. now at the age of 27 i am looking to increase my score and buy a home and it has become impossible

i have been doing research and came to find that in 2003-2004 their was a lawsuit against the gibbs school and its parent companies for reason such as; falsifying documents to show longer enrollment , forged paper work, umong other things. however this lawsuit is only for the investors of the company and not any of the student involed with this matter. i have endured countless phone calls form collectors and have many times found my jobs to be in jepordy. with no person or persons willing to help clear up this matter i find myself stuck in debt...witch i feel is not mine...and stuggling to live day to day. i know whithout a doubt that my paper work has been altered to increase their income from government funding and that my dicharge paperwork has be conviently placed into the trashcan or shredder.

i strongly advise any person looking at this school to STAY AWAY and any persons with similar problems with this school and its "other companies" i ask you to e-mail me at kgibbssux@yahoo.com i am looking forward to hearing your story and possible get enough people together to take legal action. thanks and beware

CECO- also known as career education corp.

AUTHOR: Danny - (U.S.A.)

still no word on wether or not the school will help me in this matter . i have contacted k. gibbs and sent a fax requesting all my info to be mailed. i have also contacted the fraud dept. at sallie mae (the originator of "this loan")as well as a few lawyers. and ever notified the credit burrow of this incident . i strongly sugest people to look up the info on CECO AND K. GIBBS and read exactly the worldwide scam they are pulling. it has been stated in few reports that their are even politicians that side with this company ...for personal financial gain. i will soon post links to help aid in letting people know exactly what type of company this is. links showing how school under this company wont even accept their own accreditation. and how instructors were set on quotas to increase profit for shareholders and owners of this company. it is said ( and i firmly believe ) this company tries to recruit people regardless of any race, age, sex, or any other criteria....as long as they sign on the dotted line. after they have you signed ...your enrollment is no longer needed ..because they will now charge the government for loans. thus increasing their profits, and leaving the students out to pay the bill. reguardless of if they even attended . dont get caught in this scam allowing rich people to get richer. of the backbone of the middle and lower class americans. as i said ...links comming soon. any and all paperwork or corrispondance will be posted soon as well. REMEMBER READ THE FINE PRINT.....AND IF POSSIBLE STAY AWAY FROM THIS CHOOL AND ITS AFFILIATES
