I signed up ($10.00 deposit) with CIE to pursue a degree program via distance learning but changed my after doing more research on the program and institution. They claimed they mailed me study materials for which I must now pay in excess of $3, 500.0 even though I never studied, acknowledged materials or ever pursue any program with the institution. They subsequently sent me a bill demanding payment in full which I immediately appealed. They promised to look into but subsequently emailed me saying if I paid $400.00 plus they would right off the debt. I replied asking what debt have I incurred if I never pursued anything in addition I removed from the last address and I was not in the country at the times they claimed they sent materials. They again promised to review but never did because I was bombarded with calls from a collection agency for payment of $3, 500.00. I again contacted CIE via phone and email and they again promised to review my matter and promised it would be recalled from collections agency. That was latter part of 2012. This account is now on my credit report and I need it off.
The course is Cet 351 Computer- Aided Circuit Design And Drafting.
I don't receive Grades for Lessons done the instructor keeps telling me he sends them out but i never get them. Says He can't e-mail them. Then says he will e-mail them But never does. I just had a conversation with Bruce the instructor. Said he would e-mail my grades have still not seen them. It's like talking to a wall.
Very disappointed in This school.
CIE (Cleveland Institute of Electronics) lures people into registering for their online courses at a $35 charge and once registered, they send you material for the first lesson but start billing for half of the course. Even if you do not continue with the course they continue billing and if you don't pay, they send your account to collection agency SECURITY CREDIT SYSTEMS. These people at the agency, do not respect any bankruptcy laws and continue to harass you for a payment. They are rude and insult you when you tell them that you are under the Chapter 13 bankruptcy protection.
Cleveland Institute of Electronics was notified of the Chapter 13 bankruptcy and I did not pursue the course. I did not mail any lessons to them and yet they continue to harass me.
Under the Bankruptcy law all creditors are advised to attend a Creditors Meeting to declare their claim. These clowns did not show up to the meeting and did not bother to tell the clowns at SECURITY CREDIT SYSTEMS that the account was in bankruptcy filing . Once past the alloted time to stake their claim, the court will deny their claim every time. So what do these clowns at SECURITY CREDIT SYSTEMS do? they continue to bill me and harass me hoping that I will give in and pay. I have notified my attorney about their ILLEGAL behaviour. These guys can be prosecuted if they violate the bankuptcy protection laws.
