University of Phoenix Fraud Rip Off Scam phoenix, Arizona
*UPDATE Employee: Office of Dispute Management
I attended the school for a little bit over 2 months and then just dropped out other than finding out this degree would be of no use in my State, I was going for Early Education and I asked if the Degree would be good in my State and was told immediately yes. Soon after doing a bit of research I found that my State does not accept this degree. The classes didnt seem to deal with early education.
Since then, I have had bad credit due to this school. I am in the process of disputing the fees that they are claiming to charge me. The course cost $2210.00 they received $1750.00 from the Loaner (in which I am paying off as of now) University of Phoenix is trying to tell me I owe them $1105.00. I have been back and forth with one of their Financial Adviser's for over a week now and from the beginning I have been circled talked. They keep coming up with these crazy fees. they sent me a screen shot of how much I "owe" and on the screen shot in which I have in an email clearly states $229.69 owed by the Student, but when I do the math, the fees of the course and what they received from the lender I get a balance of $460.00. They claim to have sent me in 2010 306.25 that was excess money which I never sent a dime to them and now they are telling me I owe that 306.25 on top of the 229.69 and some how come up with an amount of $1105.00.
I am not going to pay them 1105.00 on top of paying the lender back $1750.00. That is more than the actual course fee itself. I have been trying to make them understand but I think I am going to look into an attorney.
Any advise legal or from a former student who has been through this please feel free to comment.
i do not recommend them to anyone and I am now trying to just clear this off of my credit report.
