Academe Advantage is a Scam….I received a solicitation email from them stating how they can help my son get into college and that with my son unique grades they would be able to receive a 100% of financial aid and scholarships and all we had to do was attended their workshop. | Well we attended their workshop at what appears to be the home of Alana Albertson in Winchester, CA in April of last year (2018) where they showed a presentation and then afterwards they had a one on interview with my family and assured us that with my son honor roll grades they will research the scholarships he would need to apply to attend college, they would also help him with all college applications, financial aid and etc. I stressed to representative Alana many times before anything was signed and paid for this program exactly what their roll would be in this process. This person assured my husband and myself that they will help my son with getting into college and will do all the research require to match him up with the BEST Scholarships. | Yes, you guessed it we signed up paying Academe Advantage the amount of $1,998 and what a big mistake!!! after they TOOK our hard earned funds they said my son needed to complete an assessment form which will help them determine the scholarships that would best meet his needs. Well my son complete all the forms they require and we never heard from them again. | A month later I called them and said why haven’t we heard from you and the response was that we now needed to apply for financial aid download the file and they would view and make suggestions to us…this was to be done before we can move forward, so we completed FAFSA application and guess what? the file sat on my son’s account for 5months they did NOTHING!!!!. | I am the one that did the research for scholarships and financial aid for my son to attend college. My son is enrolled in college because of me the parent! Academe Advantage did ABSOLUTELY nothing but take our $$$$. | Very Frustrated I called left messages sent emails and no response from them…Finally a couple months later in October I called and spoke with Alana to express my feelings and asked the question why did I pay your company $1,998 for a program that was to provide guidance and information to help with my son and I have received nothing. Well to my surprise her response was that Academe Advantage is there to provide any answers to any questions that a parent or college student may have. Really!!! I paid 1,998 to ask questions, I expressed to her that when I attended their workshop that’s not was sold to me then if I knew that at the workshop I would had never paid for this program that is a SCAM!! I said I wanted a full refund back because Academe Advantage did nothing to help my son and was told NO!!. | I will not stop FIGHTING this company until I receive a refund or until they are SHUT DOWN!!! | Please as a parent if you receive ANY solicitation from this company just THROW it away this company is just a SCAM!! They will promise you everything you want to hear but instead just take your funds and do NOTHING!!!
