Hello and welcome.
My name is XXXXX XXXXX my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. I am sorry to hear of your difficult situation. Before I can give you an accurate answer to your question, please provide the following additional information:
Have you responded to the lawsuit they filed against you? In which court did they file the suit?
I look forward to assisting you as soon as I have received this information. Thank you.
It was the financial aid company that sued me, not the school. The school held on to the money and didn't return it to the financial aid company. The amount was $10,000 of the school loan which totaled over $50,000. The financial aid company sued me for the original loan amount plus interest and fees. I was wondering if I can sue them for the entire loan amount to repay my student loan company back since they closed up the location and didn't make any effort to either return my money or work with me to get my schooling done without wasting my time and money. Or can I only get the $10,000 they held on to (with interest of course, I am paying around 9% on my student loan)
I hope this helps clarify the situation for you. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need so I will be compensated for my time from the deposit you posted with this website. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
So would I have a chance to get more than just the amount they kept, since I feel they wasted a portion of it. When you fly you have to have current maps, charts, etc which is updated every few months so because I wasn't going as often because of the closing, I had to spend quite a bit on constantly buying new materials, also they kept "refreshing" me constantly because if you don't fly on a regular basis (weekly) you have to constantly refresh to make sure you remember everything. I feel alot of my money went towards this costing me double what it should have cost to get to the point I did. Now that its been 5 years since I flew, I may have to refresh quite a bit and feel it would eat up the remainder of what I have there without being able to finish. I have my private pilots license, trying to get my commercial to be able to be employed as a pilot.
Thank you very much for your positive rating of my service. It has been my pleasure to assist you and I hope you will ask for me should a future legal need arise.
