Complaint / review text:
I graduated from Strayer University on June 20,2010. I recently found on Jan. 9,2013, that Strayer University is still taking out loans in my name and had disbursed on 1/20/11-1/5/2011; payments were received at Strayer. I called Sallie Mae, and they confirmed that in the amount of $12,866. I went online to Direct Loans, and the printout has this amount. I did go to Strayer University Financial Aid and was told that a student is attending class with my SS#. I did go to Melvin (Director), and he told me that nobody has used my name. Yet I confirmed all the information that Strayer University received the check.
This college is the worst when it comes to theft.in the past, they have been in the newspaper and were reported to Department of Education due to putting loans in student's name that never applied for loans. This school should be investigated ASAP. Now, I am reporting this to OIG, IRS, Department of Education, and the police department. I had alert on my account. This is now the information that comes up with the loans. They told me that they don't know where the money is. This school should be prosecuted for fraud. I am going to make sure they pay for taking out loans in my name. I would never refer anyone to attend this school. I am taking action against them. When you call headquarters, nobody ever answers the phone. And Mr. (a director) was no help at all, and he told me not to come down there because nothing ever happens. Where are the check and the promissory letter that I sign when the checks came in? I am going to let the authority deal with them.
