Complaint: Enrolled in Fasttrain’s Pembroke Pines campus back in 2006 for a program that would assist me in obtaining Microsoft and CompTIA certifications. Committed to a Sallie Mae Loan of around $9000 dollars which I still pay until this day faithfully only so that my credit remains in good standing. I’ve worked extremely hard to keep it that way. My disgust with this school became very apparant when I realized that the instructors simply wasted our time by reading a few excerts from the books and making us do useless meaningless excercises on severely out dated equipment and sending us home to basically learn the stuff on our own. In which case If I knew that this is what I was in for, I would’ve just bought the book and read it on my own without getting into this ridiculous debt. I became frustrated stopped going and actually pursued my CompTIA certifications on my own. Needless to say I should’ve filed a complaint back then. Now I find out that the owner was convicted of fraud and screwed over hundreds if not thousands of students and is doing jail time. I entered into this loan and because of the ridiculous interest rates have paid more than double what I owed and yet I still owe 4000 dollars. I’m simply looking to have this eliminated and it’s not fair that I should still be paying this loan for a service which was garbage and for a fraudulent school such as Fasttrain.com If anyone can point me out to a consumer advocate that can help me in my case I would greatly appreciate it.
