Thanks for the info. I see another message from you. Did you give further info or was it just posted twice?
They say that they will provide accounts when the accountants are finished tallying everything up. How do I know if these accounts are corrected and not fixed in some way? I transferred my money to their account in the US but they must also have an account in France. Should I get confirmation on that as well from the attorney to prove that there is in deed no money?
Can I ask the attorney acting for the school, for the names and contact info of the other parents that must be in the same position as me?
If there really is no funds left to repay the school tuition, I don't have any recourse, do I? I can't go after the owner's assets, can I? The school is Incorporated.
Thanks Eli. Should I wait until I hear back from them to see if I am going to get something and if I don't then contact an attorney? Or should I start the process now?
Ok great thanks Eli. I will take a look at the web site you gave me re getting a lawyer.
I will rate you now and come back to you at a later date if I have any further questions or don't get through with a lawyer in California.
So sorry Ely, I just realised that I have been spelling your name wrong!!
Thanks again for all your assistance, I have taken a loan out to pay for my son to go to this school, so I have having a real hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I may never see the money back when I am still going to be liable to pay the money back from my end!
