The College Network rn program

I went through this school because I thought with working full time as an LPN it would let me work at my own pace. This company did nothing to help me succeed. I paid 10, 000 for an education I never got. The exams were impossible to pass without enough information. There were no books. The study guide was useless. I would have to spend hours upon hours looking up everything. It was a waste of time and money I didn't have.

The College Network lpn to bsn program

In 2011 a representative from the college network came to my home, gave me the promises of the world - he told they would supply me with all of the modules, books and information I needed to get through the course. Well, I got a binder, I called them asked where all the other information, books and studying materials they promised in the contract were. They told me I had a list of places I could purchase the books to study from - I told them per the representative they sent to my house and the contract the books and all studying materials were included - they told me I misunderstood - no I did not. I then purchased some books did the studying - nothing matched - information was different from the online information to the modules to the books. I then contacted them and told the that I did not want to continue with this program. They told me I had no choice, I was to late to get out of the contract. I kept calling, no one would call back, only got answering machines, or put on hold forever and no one would come back to the phone. I know it has been 7 years, but I have just recently learned of all this scamming going on. I to want my monies back paid in full. If anyone can help me how to go about this I would greatly appreciate it. Yes, of course there is much more that they did not do but I don't have all day to write it down. But - I did save everything and write down everything. Thank you.

The College Network lpn to rn bsn program

SCAM! SCAM! SCAM! You have taken thousands of dollars from people including myself. Your services do not provide anything. You made it to be believed that the "tuition" that we are paying include the exams fees for Excelsior...LIES! In order to take the exam I am going to have to shell out another $300-$400 for each exam! That is 12 exams I have to take! I WANT MY MONEY BACK! You are ruining people's lives. So that I have to not risk damaging my credit I have been making $130 payments each month for the past 4 years! Which also the credit union in Florida has 12% interest rate. And I have nothing to show besides debit. You take advantage of newly graduated LPN's and suck them dry of all their hard earn money.

The College Network lvn to rn

I was scammed out of over 6000 dollars.. I was promised assistance and never received, they threatened to take my nursing license if I didn't pay 6000 dollars by the end of the day... which I did after I found out it was all a lie. I am now left with no chance of going back to school, and money that could have been used gone with no answers or anyone to help.

Not sure how TCN filed bankruptcy seeing they have overcharged, stolen, and scammed millions of people who fell for this crap and that's including me! Hate to say it but it sounded to good to be true! Can't believe they got away with so much fraud. There to chicken and are cowards to own up to the truth of it all. Everyone deserves all the money back plus double the interest since they are [censored] liars and have been late to return everyone's payback!

The College Network scam!!!

I signed up with the college network under the impression that it would help me with my transition from lvn to bsn. I was told that all my testing fees were included in the amount financed. When I called and asked for a check for testing, they stated that they would give me a check for $160. The test itself was $450, so I would be responsible for $190 more than I had already been paying for. They said that was all that I paid for. Not what I was told! I was told that all the test fees were included in the financing. I stopped paying on this loan due to it being a scam and now they are ruining my credit!

The College Network lpn-rn program

I was also scammed by The College Network. It was presented to me as a program consisting of 8 modules (classes). I was informed that after each module there would be a test to take at the cost of around $100 at a Pearson Vue testing center. After the 8 modules have been completed, there would be a weekend clinical in Columbus that would be cumulative, pass or fail. The cost of the program is $10, 000, which I have already paid $6, 000, taken directly out of my checking every month. After studying the first module, I contacted The College Network to find out how and where I should test. I was then informed that I had to apply to Excelsior College before I could test. After applying, I then find out that I have to pay for the program through Excelsior as well and that they are in no way affiliated with The College Network. I want my hard earned money back from The College Network!

The College Network test prepare

I had enrolled in college network in 2010 because I need to be able to study and pass those online classes from excelsior college. The promised that I will be able to study and pass all tests. I only used the first module and did not pass that one. They promised if I don't pass a class they will send someone to study with me and help me pass. when I called them they told me or not I need to study again and only if I failed two time they can help them. I realized that I should used other avenue. I told them that their program is not working for me I want to cancel they said no. I kept calling them about the situation how I don't even used any of their modules they said I can see that but their nothing they can do about it either I paid or they can send my name to the credit bureau which they did and mess up my credit. I don't think it is fair especially They sent a remaining of $3700.00 of a over $6000.00 as unpaid debt. After being harassed by debt collectors Please help me . I am a single mother who is trying to get a better life to provide for family. Thank for your help

The College Network lvn to rn scam

While I was at that school, a representative from The College Network came and talked to us. After graduating, I reached out to them for more info. I was told that there wasn't an office in my area, but an Admissions Advisor would meet me at Starbucks near my apartment. I did not have a job secured yet, so I was unable to make the $50 application fee at that time. He said that was fine, had me fill out what appeared to be the school application and informed me that I had a 30 day cancellation option. He called later that week and collected the $50 by phone, using my husband's bank card. A week after that, I was told by several students at my school that The College Network wasn't actually a college. I called the rep and informed him that I would like to cancel. He asked why and informed me that my $50 wasn't refundable, but he would process the cancellation paperwork and mail me a copy. I never received it. Time went by and I figured that since I never started the school, I didn't have much to worry about since I never attended classes.
Something appeared on my credit a couple years ago and I was told it was for a car repossession The company was called WE Financial out of Florida. I disputed the claim and it came back valid. I kept checking my credit report and it was showing payments being made to that account. I figured that was the payments that I did make towards the car.
Last Friday, I received a letter in the mail stating I was in default for not responding to being served back in August of 2015. I never was served, regardless of what the process server says. It states that it was personally handed to me. Of course the court doesn't question it, even though they say they want to stay neutral on cases. I contacted the attorney's office and spoke with a couple different men. I was able to get a copy of the contract and the supposed copy of what I was handed over a year ago.
I started researching everything. Integras bought this debt from City County Credit Union. They are the company that finances the loans for The College Network. Here is what I found.
-The College Network is being sued by the Indiana and New York Attorney General.
-There are thousands of people just like me that were not notified properly (not giving any time to respond to the lawsuit) and the attorney has won the judgment.
- The school contract I signed, is not the one the Admissions rep gave me!
-USA Today even did an article on the fraudulent activity of this school.
I have a little over one month before my default court date arrives. I do not qualify for legal aid, nor can I afford an attorney. I've spoken to several attorneys and they keep suggesting I contact Integras for a payment arrangement, or I file bankruptcy. I tried so hard to pick myself up and better my family and now I'm stuck with a fraudulent lawsuit.

I had signed up to do that College Network thing as well, back in 2010. I never took one class because nothing had ever been sent to me. Well I got a credit check done and College Network was listed under it for a little over 3000.00 dollars. I contacted them and they stated there was nothing that they could do. Well I left it as was for the time being because I was attending another college full-time and did not have the time it took to call someone and spend hours on the phone with them. Anyways, we just checked the College Network site and when Google came up that they were being sued, my husband went to check my credit report and it was taken off of there and listed as paid. Or charged off because the school was deemed fraudulent. I was happy to see it, because to be charged something that I never used one time was a bit nuts. Plus when I asked for the school papers that they were supposed to send me, I never received them. I hope that helps a little bit. End of Story is that The College Network was a big huge scam.

The College Network education

WOW WHAT A SCAM! I was also duped by my College Network Rep. She told me I could try the program out for 3 months and if I didn't find it to be to my liking I could actually withdraw. No I'm being sued by a legal firm for the full payment. This will ruin my life as I don't make enough to cover the $4000.00 charges not to mention court cost. Yes I should have known better than to trust another human being! How sad we have come to this in this day and age. If I lose any of my pay I could lose my rented home, my car and finally my job. Don't fall for College Network promises. They are bogus! If any one has ideas as to how I can now help myself, please let me know

The College Network education

I signed up with college network over the phone in 2014, I was not given any information regarding what I had agreed too. I was told this was a online nursing program through Indiana State University. Only to find out later that I was given false information. I have attempted to cancel my illegally obtained contract with no luck. They will not return any calls or emails. I just want out. I dont care about the thousands I have already paid in. I just want out so I can attend an actual accredited college.

The College Network rn adn

I have the same issues in regards to the college network. I was unable to grasp the concepts of college algebra and seemed guidance from the support I was promised would be there and I basically got the same info from the texts I already had.. I also tried to drop out about a month later and had been told I could cancel at any time. I was told this could be a educational write off and that I would get the same type of tax form at the end of year and that turned out to be a lie. The associate who came to my house and signed me up is the one who gave me all of the false info I speak of. I am very disappointed in the conduct of this school and would never recommend it to anyone. I blame myself for being naive and trusting. But I was also lied to about several issues and need help getting this debt resolved.

The College Network scam!

For anyone concidering using The College Network, DON'T DO IT! It's a rip off! The "study material" they give you is a joke and doesn't prepare you whatsoever for the exams. Half of what your "academic adviser" tells you at your first meeting is a lie. They have been ripping people off and shattering dreams of further education for years and I do not know how they are still in buisness! I joined TCN in hopes of receiving my RN through their LPN to RN 18 month bridge program. Ha! It's a joke, I've been in it for 2 years now and am still no closer than I was on day one. Please do your research before signing that dotted line! I wish I did!

The College Network - Want a refund asap

A year and a half ago I signed on with the college network to the tune of $6000 +. I am paying monthly to southeast credit union who deducts the payment directly from my checking account. Trouble is I am not using the college network curriculum., I have taken all my courses through regis university. I do not need half of what the college network said I do!...

The College Network finance

Lets add insult to injury. Aside from their deceptive educational practices. The credit union that claims to be independent of the college network isn't. It seems that if you are a day late paying your bill the college network locks you out of your classes. Yet the credit union claims they paid the college network in full. So by extension it shouldn't matter if I pay the credit union or not my education was theoretically paid in full. Why is the school involved in enforcing payment to the credit union. However when you try to get TCN to refund the money or pay back the credit union they say they cant. So file a complaint with the attorney general of your state the BBB in Indiana and Indiana's attorney general and don't forget to go after the credit union in Nevada who interestingly enough shares an address with TCN according to the BBB of Indiana. File complaints with both the state attorney generals office and the state and federal banking commissions. Lets get our money back and shut these thief's down.

Let me get this straight. So you enroll in a program and then stop making payments. Then you wonder why you have been "locked" out of your classes? I'm just wondering if everyone expects to use something and not pay for it? Of course they are going to stop your program if you stop paying. What other recourse do they have?

The College Network misrepresentation of a product

Msiepresentation of a product - not an education. No books just computer printouts you have to print out and you get to pay thousands of dollars at 12% interest rate for nothing. The college network scammed me they said they were a reputable educater with affilications to many colleges. They said that you would be able to get financial aid - only it turns out you have to reside in the state of your choice of college in order to get state aid. I feel so bad so I wrote to them refusing to pay any more money. They need to be stopped before they ruin more futures Any one reading this beware of the scam...believe nothing you are told by the representatives they send out. Mary
