Complaint: I went to this school about a year and a half ago. I went for 2 days and than ended up having to leave the school because of my new born son wasnt doing to well and my wife lost a lot of blood and we ended up in the hospital. I had went down to the school and said I had to leave for an emergency and that I wouldn't be able to come back until they made a full recovery. They said that was fine and that it wouldnt even mess with my ** bill. After a whole year and tax time came around they ended up filing that I stayed the whole semester of schooling and took all 100% of my tax return which was $9,600. I had called the Irs and told them that it was a false debt. They explained that it was out of their hands to do anything about it. So we called the VA and tried to get them to understand that this school had taken my ** bill falsely and that they ended up taking my ** bill and my whole tax return. I have tried everything to contact them and it has now been a year of trying to get them to pay me back the money they falsely took from me. I actually left Virginia state to come here to get a hold of the president of the school and he refuses to contact me period along with his VA rep which is extremely rude. I have both letters from the VA stating that I do not owe that debt anymore and I also have the letter from the school stating that I never owed that debt and dont owe it anymore but no one wants to contact me and give me my money back at all. I am getting a lawyer and going to try to get it back that way because as a veteran they have caused me so much debt when they took that tax return. I had just gotten out of the army at that time and had bills to pay up on. I now am being ignored and no on wants to pay me back the money they took falsely even though it has been proven that I never owed them in the first place at all. I need help with this because no one wants to help me and I have all the paper work to prove my case but no one wants to help me even though this school has taken from me falsely.
Desired Settlement: If I cannot get them to contact me and return my money I am further going to get a lawyer and sue them for all credit damages they have costed me by taking my tax return falsely and being so rude to me over the phone every time I call. They shouldn't be allowed to just take someones ** bill illegally by a false claim and make me have to jump through hoops to get it back when it has been proven that I never owed them anything in the first place. It has been a whole year now to resolve this.
