I paid cash in full for this debt and my graduate degrees before that to same school. I am alleging that I do owe them money, but not the amount they are asking for. They have warned me not to claim or allege that an employee might have taken it, but thats what I think as 15 years ago the way to make payments was in a box you dropped the envelope into.
I did not make payments. I have a good reason, but it is not a legal argument.
California does not accept copies, it must be an offical transcript which only the school can give me.
They did not want or suggest that I sign a contract.
They want 1,000.00 immediatly and 200/month for two years. I have gone through my retirement. No, I cannot afford that.
Thank you, Joseph.
