Complaint Review: Al Collins Graphic Design School
Al Collins Graphic Design School student ripoff scam. So does anyone know how I can get all those extra loans they lied about taken away?
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: no one is entitled to success - YOU have to work d**n hard to earn it
*UPDATE Employee: BUYER BEWARE: COLLINS COLLEGE GRADUATES DO NOT MAKE ENOUGH TO PAY OFF LOANS!!!
*Consumer Comment: A little late, but the anger is the same.
*Consumer Suggestion: You weren't cheated
I am finally back on my feet as a secretery in Pine Grove, California. I feel that I was cheated and there is no way on my current pay that I could pay that money back. I got nothing but problems from that school. After attending there for a year, I needed some time off because my boyfriend had commited suicide.
I was gone for 5 weeks but not fully recuperated yet, but because I didn't come back at that time, I was kicked out. Now they say that I owe them over $25,000. There is no way I could pay it. I thought they were going to help me find a job. If there is an ongoing case against this school, I would love to be a part of it, otherwise I am going to have to file for bankruptcy at the age of 20.Another thing is that I was told that they were going to provide a place for me to live, and that was in my tuition, but they put me in a 2 bedroom apartment with 4 other people and told me I had to pay $295 a month to live there. All my roomates paid the same amount.
They made about $500 a month off every group of students. Apartments around Tempe are only like $400-$500 a month. Where did all that money go? I was ripped off bad and I want them to be paid back. I had to work nights every night after school and barely made my rent, minimum wage is $5.15 in Arizona.
