    To Whom It May Concern: Refund Approved But Not Received

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    I have apply for my refund and was told that it has been approved since last year. We are well over the 45 days period for the refund to be processed.

    Please let me know if the college has any intention to refund the due fees to me or do I need to contact the local police in order to get support.

    As I understand, I am not the first person who has waited so long for a simple refund.

    Best regard

    I had enrolled myself in LSBF canada on sept, 2011. As soon as I got my Letter of Acceptance after paying a deposit of CAD $ 4, 475, I had applied for my visa for Canada. Unfortunately I was rejected the visa twice which forced me to apply for refund. I created a ticket with number 6703 on 12th Feb, 2012. After being approved the refund, I provided my bank details as per asked. Due to delay I started inquiring more often and I would get replies that my refund would be processed by July, than mid of November and lastly end of January. It has now been more than a year since I have applied for my refund and I am still waiting.

    i had applied for the same course cima glyndwr.They gave me offer letter on 26th march.My visa was expiring on 12th.They didnt gave me cas letter for that course they told me that glyndwr is not satisfied with my application so they are not going to me give cas from glyndwr but however they said they can offer me lsbf cas letter.I told them i need my £3000 deposit back.My advisor told me as it will take 3/4 weeks but i will definetly get it coz it wasnt my fault they coudnt manage to get me cas from glyndwr university.they did issued me offer letter than what was the problem.i have seen hundreds of students who didnt got cas letter like me and offered lsbf cas.some of them took lsbf cas and some of them went to some other uni.Then they told me, for refund u have to apply for ticket and i did.After waiting 3 weeks they canceled my refund saying all the deposit paid is non refundable as it is metioned in their terms and u r not going get even a single penny back but however u can take online course.
    So right now i am planing to go for legal fight.Our money is our blood and they are sucking our blood.Our parents work really hard to pay for our education and this kind professional thiefs are stealing our money like that.its not gonna happen.

    AGAIN, Can I get a further update on my fee refund? I see my ticket history has been cleared and the 45 working days I was instructed on is now up. When will the money be transferred into my account? It's funny how quickly the fees were taken but the school finds it so very difficult to give refunds! Id:M1007200

    lsbf - Deposit refund
    England, Greater London
    United Kingdom

    I have started to apply for ACCA+MBA with Lsbf they issued me offer letter and showed me how much the life will be easy, then I got my CAS and visa to find out that course don't entitle me for work or to bring my family with me, I requested to cancel this CAS and they actually FDIC and started convincing me of another course that entitles me for work and bring me dependents, I asked directly when will this course start they confirmed, it starts every month so no problem to join any thus I requested to start on September, they astonished me that u can only start in July so send us your paper to issue u a CAS that was on 10th June, It takes about 10 days to issue a visa here, I am working in international bank here, so I have two months notice period, it's not going like that to say bye and leave.

    I requested a refund for my deposit they didn't show up after that

    Could you please help with that

    Good luck Mustafa.
    As for me its two years and i have never received my payment. LSBF staff are very good before and during your payment. They go on and promise a refund if you dont get a visa. But once the visa is denied its a different story they will tell you they dont handle matters concerning refunds and they will give you a telephone number tocall. This phone is never answered and if it is answered the contact person (Larry king) will never be availlable or even reply your email or voicemail. It also seems nobody else can help you on the matter.
    They go on and change your status to "to be paid' and then two months later they say they need more paper work, and ask for the same paper you sent them. My student number is T10200024.
    Deal with Lsbf (Toronto) at your own risk

    Lsbf are thieves...exact thing happened to me. I enrolled for CIma, no cas letter issued. Then I asked for my refund, it has taken now 9 months and there is absolutely no one to speak to. everything need to be done via an electronic system. but when it was to enrol, there was always a living a person to collect bank details even late via the phone. This school will defi pay. I will do my best to publish this at local, national and international level. We should make a website to market these bandits, , , being international students doesnt mean you can be manipulated...London School of Business and Finance is BAD BAD BAD. if you want to enrol there, please do not. i have paid 4, 300 and now 9 months... no news, nothing... my money will be paid back boys... we will fight for this...and i am sure this school will close.

    I have asked for the refund (ticket # 14151) on 06/08/2013 and I was told considering my situation I will get it by 18/08/2013 by Oliur Talekder who was supposedly looked into my refund request and give me a call back on the 18/08/2013. Until today 23/09/2013 which is more than 50 days didn't have any response from him despite of being chasing him up on each and every day through switchboard. Everyday Oliur Talekder received a message on his desk about me calling him and I never received a call from him nor from anyone within the refund department. According to switchboard only Oliur Talekder can get me a refund out of the whole LSBF but I didn't receive any email or call or any communication from him.
    LSBF is holding £3075 of mine which shouldn't be charged in the first place as they couldn't issue me a CAS letter. They should have advised me before charging the tuition fees for the course after going through the documents.
    I'm still waiting to get my refund since 06/08/2013 and I didn't receive any response yet from the refund department yet even though switchboard has been leaving messages on their desk about my refund.
    My name is kashif iqbal and my refund ticket number is 14151.

    Hi friends the same thing happens to me they gave me a offer for Cima but later they said that they cannot give me a glyndwr CAS, they forced me to get lsbf CAS. I'm really disappointed, the same story happens to 4 of my friends and one of them had to leave the country without getting her money and she didn't have money to pay for another uni. Very sad story.

    Hi all, I am also a victim of LSBF, I enrolled for a full time CIM 2012 and my visa was refused due to the course level, In the offer letter they provided me they said that the course i will be studying is level 6 course whereas in the CAS letter is says Level 5 which doesn't exist as for CIM courses in LSBF they only have Level 5 and level 6. so then my visa has been refused due to the course level, So when i went to LSBF to complaint and asked them to rectify the CAS letter but the staff were really rude and disrespectful. So I have requested my refund online and also send them so many emails but I am still haven't heard from them yet.

    I have been cheated too, they wont give me my money back because apparently i defered my course once.
    I think we should write an official complaint and get signatures of student or something. this has to stop

    I completely agree! I was enrolled for a 2 semesters (ACCA) starting from February 2012 and I could not attend the second semester which I had paid for as i could not renew my student visa due to new rules that the home office had put into action.
    The reason for my refund was that i had to apply for my refund 15 days before the commencement of my course. This is absolutely ridiculous as the new home office rules came into effect on april 2012; two months after the commencement of my course and i had no idea that i will not be allowed to renew my visa.
    I think we should report this organisation and write formal complaints to the relevant authorities, namely OIA, UKCISA and QAA.
    We should collaborate together to make sure our voices our heard and that lsbf stops cheating more students out of their money. As an establishment that deals with a majority of international students, they should consider unforseen circumstances such as a new home office law coming into action.
    My email address is [email protected] Please get in touch and all the best with your cases!
