I was able to file insolvency on my taxes, I almost crapped a brick when turbo tax said i would owe over $4,000 to the government. Any how, I have no idea what to do about the loans. I've been paying $266 a month for about a year now. got my Private pilot out of the deal. If you can call it a deal

I know its late in the game to say anything. Like many out there I didn't get anything from this mess but a gynormous headache. Had to file an extension when I was suppose to get money back. I see people all around me losing their homes their jobs and I haven't worked now in a year and a half. I myself have had the run-around from Advocacy to BBB to Consumer Affairs to the Attorney General. No one seams to know what they are doing. Another loop-whole in the system the rich have found to screw the poor. I guess you guys have all read the article in Rotor and Wing Mag. I mean when the VP of a company comes out with info like this I can't believe the goverment would sit still. What happened to "We The People"? Now reads "We The Rich". When they filed Chapter 7 the money was frozen. Nobody could touch it. Well it didn't evaporate. The day I signed my name to join this scam the people at that table knew I was signing on the Titanic. They knew I was one of the 80% that would never see the light of day. And they knew what they were doing. For them I have no remorse. They where looking out for number one. I just hope you remember what you did. I know I'll never forget.

They tell me I owe $6000.00 and I only took 3 classes. Can you explain that?

Look if any of you have questions about how this stuff happened and why. All your questions from state to state, court to court is listed at www.wa.gov . go to the bottom of the page and under documents: click ASSURANCE OF DISCONTINUANCE. You will find page 22 to 31 very important. If you don't make the payments on time you will go from a 75% discount to a 7.5% discount. Discribes QUALIFIED CLASS MEMBER and DISQUALIFIED CLASS MEMBER. It wouldn't hurt you to read it all. You don't need an Attorney to understand it. WE ARE
!!F$%k'd!!. If you know what I mean.

They have this stuff so scattered no one can tell where anything is. It took me 5 years to find what little I know, which is nothing.
They call this thing a "Class Action" which means if a person (in our situation)loses and you don't 'counter' within a given time, you can't "OPT-OUT". I think we're stuck.
Another way to see it,....
I file suit from my area. No one else is involved. I cut a deal to take a fall. They absolve my case. The rest of you suckers pay my way out. This was an "F,U", "save me" deal from the start. The BANK always wins.

I'm afraid that if you've received a 1099-C against your 2011 taxes, its too late to do anything but make arrangements to pay.
Air(head)ola has won this bout. The "Iron Curtain" has fallen. Your money was taken the switch was thrown. We owe, and he walks.
Case closed.

If someone tells you different?! They are the ones screwing you now. Good luck with your venture.

I don't know what happened to the page. It has changed since my last blog. It now reads www.AccessWashington.gov . Before it was just www.wa.gov . The page was green and you had to scrowl down to
DOCUMENTS: ASSURANCE OF DISCONTINUANCE. It had every case listed and they "ALL" lost. Must have been six national banks and investors listed and Mr. Air(head)ola sitting right in the middle. How could he possibly loose. A bag of #$%@ smelling like a rose.

He told us that the new helicopters parked out side would be left at our new school and that we would be flying them. We had 70 students fighting over one broke helicopter.

Folks that received the 1099-C are, those of us that opted-out still can go after this magot.
Also, if anyone hears about Airy starting any other business venture we need to warn the next victims. Keep you eyes and ears open..

Its not just him but the people giving him money in our name. I warned these people not to give him money. They took my name off the roll call. The school close my account then reopened it without my consent. Five years goes by I hear nothing then 'BAM' 1099-C out of nowhere.

I was taking fixed wing classes at another school at the time and a SLED agent gave me a heads-up on the situation. Thank God for that. I would owe $49,000.00 if it hadn't been for him.

I ask my tax person about the 1099-C and was told I had to pay because I wasn't insolvent in this case. I own more than I owe. I ask the IRS about my home and they say they won't take my home. I know this is what all cowboys say to the horse just before they shoot it. A Shealy man in SC tried to fight this matter and lost along with many others across the US. I was told that if I tried to file my taxes without the 1099-C I could be found guilty of defrauding the gov. and the penalties could include jail time. It sounds to me like I'm stuck with this bill like it or not. I filed an extension and I'm in the process of getting that straight. Its really sucks when you have to ask for help from family because this magot wanted to show off to the world. I have already tried the attorney thing and got nowhere. I dropped my fix wing classes to pay him and still have no answers and didn't finish fix wing courses. 58 takeoffs and landings as PIC and no certificate. Thanks a lot Jerry.

I was receiving statments, but never paid a dime for this PONZI SCAM. I have since been able to get the letters to stop and DO NOT HAVE ANY trace of this PONZI debt on my credit.

Simply put the Burden of proof upon the banks to prove that you owe the money. Ask them to provide the original contacts. They can't!!!!!!

The "settlement" lawyers never did this because they were working for the bank. by being part of the "class" you were accepting the ponzi scam debt.

Based on my tax prep pesons advise,I too opted out because I couldnot afford pay the amount after settlement and taxes on top of that. Not much to do now but wait. Government has a big student loan default rate problem and rising to deal with. Maybe they will make the loan dischargable under bankruptcy like it was possible before 2004. They have to do something.I get bills,phonecalls and default notices on biweekly bases but I am not doing anything till I get court papers. Then, I will hire a lawyer and see how will all this play out.Till then, Im just chilin

For a long time I'd get notices from AES but for the last couple of months I've gotten several notices from a collection agency (NES) asking me to settle my debt by paying half (about $45K which includes interest) but I haven't paid them a dime. Anyone else in the same boat?

If you don't mind your Credit. pay the student loan people just $5.00 a month.
If you pay them nothing they take you to court and they will WIN by default and Judge will order your wages to be garnish then you're screwed. By paying them just a couple buck they can yell all they want telling you your loan is in Default and what not. That's okay as long as you're sending them crumbs after a few months they will send it to collections and that's where you can settle. BUT A WORD OF CAUTION. The collection company will ask you to settle for 5k or 6 k and not tell you that its for just one of the 3 loans and just when you think its over they will send you another request to settle for the next one again, so on, tell them you will settle for ALL 3 of the loans for what ever you want and negotiate it you want it in writing and read it carefully watch how they structure their letter because they will come back and tell you Didn't you read the settlement letter? so heads up there. Also, they will ask you as part of the deal it has to be electronically debited. DO NOT GIVE THESE MAGOTS ACCESS TO YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT......OPEN A SECONDARY ACCOUNT AND LEAVE IT EMPTY UNTIL YOU GET READY TO DEPOSIT THE PAYMENY AND PUT NOTHING IN THERE. BECAUSE THEY WILL GO IN AND TAKE MORE OUT OF IT. JUST LEAVE IT WITH A ZERO BALANCE UNTILL THE DAY BEFORE THEY ARE SCHEDULE FOR THE DEBIT.*****BY THE WAY I FOUND THE FUGITIVE JERRY*****
