So it evidently wasn't bad enough that I made the
mistake of a lifetime by starting up with "University
of Phoenix, online" to try and make getting some
school credits more convenient.
The University of Phoenix was bad enough;
* they provided incompetent 'teachers'
* had robo-correcting and flawed paper-checking
* non responsive counselors
* scammed me for two credits on a semester not taken
* lied to the federal government about me
* blocked my transcript from being released
* then stole money from my account
* and now have an inflated debit against me
So, let's see-- failure to deliver on goods promised, lies,
theft, falsification of documents, and more. What a stellar
institution this is!
Now, on top of that, they have turned over my account,
refusing to take any responsibility for their wrong-doing,
and are trying to collect the monies they fabricate that I owe
them through a "student services" group named the i-3 group.
These lovely folks have been calling and leaving harassing
phone calls at my mother's home, where I do not live, and
talking shit to her.
When I got their number and called them, they were hostile
and aggressive with me, talking shit and telling me to "Take
care of my bills!" Not only is that extremely unprofessional,
it's also against the law. I told them I had no intention of
paying their trumped up charges, and why, and that I was going
to file a lawsuit. They were expressly told to stop calling that
number, and that I wished nothing to do with them.
Nonetheless, the harassing phone calls continue unabated.
The rudeness and pushiness persists.
Whatever you do, don't ever use the University of Phoenix.
I wish I could say you get what you pay for, but the poor
quality of what I received was nowhere near worth the
astronomically exorbitant fees they charge.
Slow, inconvenient, costly, and chock full of shit.
Just what one needs during efforts to learn and prosper.
