Complaint Review: Westwood College Of Technology
Westwood College Of Technology19700 S. Vermont Ave., Suite 100 Torrance, California U.S.A.
Westwood College Of Technology (South Bay Campus) "Westwood College" "Scammers" Liars Rip-offs 18% Westwood Loans Torrance, CA Torrance California
July 11th, 2007 I spoke with a representative from the financial aid office and asked about the piece of paper they wanted me to sign. She informed me that I needed to get out of "this Westwood Loan" and apply for a private loan and I did and was not approved. She then instructed me to find a cosigner. I explained to her that I do not have any cosigners. I was then told that there is nothing else that she could do, and that I had the option of seeking other private lenders, but I had to sign the paper until then. I refused to until I can negotiate that ridiculous 18%interest rate.
Westwood's sales reps lied to me, Westwood's Financial Aid personnel lied to me. I was promised that I would be able to receive grants to help me pay for my education. I was told that Westwood College was regionally accredited, which was a lie. I was sold pure lies and scammed out of money pushed in to sever debt. I have sacrificed a lot to pursue a higher education and now I am being ripped off for it.
I am also experiencing a last minute notice of my financial obligation and status. They know that they are robbing student and the only way to get their authorization to do so is to wait until they can hang it over your head right before graduation.
I am in desperate need of help. Readers if you read this and could be of any assistance please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You for Your time.
