Customer Question
Hi, I hope that...

Hi, I hope that you can. I am a former student of Careers Australia, I have a VET FREE-HELP LOAN of $20.000. The course was sold to me over the phone and I realized as I commenced studies, the course was not what I expected.studies as I am suffering from depression, and caring for my elderly parents

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Sorry entered too soon oops

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, that pretty much wraps my situation thanks

Good Afternoon

Do you have a copy of the course terms and conditons that you can email me so I can see about withdrawing?

How long have you been studying the course and have you approached them about the issues?

I assume the $20,000.00 has been paid in full and you are paying off the loan?

Hi Leon, I'm in Adelaide SA. I will need to search for the documentations you require. I am and have been unemployed during my studies with Careers Australia. I did advise them of my predicament, was advised to call a number, and communicate my problem but by the time I got around to do so they went into receivership. I commenced studies in 2015.
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 1 year ago

Good Morning

They are in recievership?

Hello Leon, sorry for my delay in responding. I need to know, what your charges are for this advice?
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 1 year ago

You have offered an amount to pay and as long as you stay on this post you do not pay anymore. Only once you accept my information will I be paid. If you elect a call then they will advise you on what that will cost.
