Trinity Seminary is not an accredited school as they claim. Do not even sign up for one course!!! They will charge you for an entire 5 year degree!! I applied to the school unfortunately thinking it was THE TRINITY SEMINARY, an accredited institution. They ended up charging me for attending the school and I never attended. However, even though their website shows that they charge 150.00 per credit hour-- I was charged for an entire degree program, when they never graded one paper for me.

When I call and ask them if they have any records of my having attended their school they say that they have none. However, they have reported me to the credit bureau as owing their University over 3,000.00. I am praying that God's judgement will be rendered to them for their lies and swindling. When I asked to speak with the person who I had originally talked to in their finance department--a man and his son--- I was told they had been fired for some fraudulent practices!!

However the University refuses to correct my credit report even though they admit I have never attended their University!!! May the good Lord give to this institution what they are dishing out by having every one involved with this institution experience the same fraud. DO NOT RELEASE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THIS INSTITUITION. DO NOT PAY AN APPLICATION FEE. IT IS A FRAUD! THEY WOULD NOT KNOW CHRIST IF HE CAME UP AND SLAPPED THEM IN THE FACE. THEY WOULD DO WELL TO REMEMBER THAT JESUS REBUKED THE MONEYCHANGERS IN THE TEMPLE WITH WHIPS!!!

A Similar Thing Happened to Me!

AUTHOR: Angela Eastwood - (United States of America)

I fell for this Rip Off as well. I called Trinity Seminary just to make an inquiry and didn't really have the money to pay for the course, but they "sweet talked" me into signing an agreement where I would put down an initial "tuition" payment and then make monthly payments. The amount they charged me for was over $1,200.

When I got the course materials and started going through them it became clear to me that the first assignment was impossible to complete. I spent many hours on the phone talking with "counselors" about how to complete this first assignment and suggested that maybe this course was too hard for me and I was thinking about dropping out and asking for my money back and they would always "encourage" me to "hang in there" and finish the assignment.

I never did send in even one assignment and when I called to cancel the program so that I could stop making monthly payments, they said that it was past the "deadline" to drop out and I would have to pay the full amount whether I finished the course or not. I told them that they were not behaving according to the Bible and that I did not feel that what they were doing was moral or ethical. That did not seem to bother them at all. They still insisted that I had to finish paying the full amount.

I had already paid them over $700 at this point so I stopped making payments and they turned me over to a collection agency. The unpaid balance when I stopped making payments was $755.

Three years later I got a phone call from a woman who said she was from a law firm that represented Trinity Seminary and they were suing me for $1,300, which is more than the original amount that they charged me in the first place!

This woman from the law firm said that I had to agree to make a payment arrangement with them to pay this debt and that once I agreed to make payments if I stopped making payments they would issue a warrant for my arrest and prosecute me and put me in jail!

I have been a Christian for over 40 years and I know the Bible well. The Bible says that you can judge someone by the "fruit" that they bear. From my experience with Trinity Seminary it seems to me that their "fruit" is rotten to the core!!!

I will join you in prayer that God will call these people to account for what they are doing to others.
