I agree with the class action law suit against united travel schools. I attended in 1988 and graduated . They never did offer job placement and then I found out they went bankrupt. With all the money they collected from all the students who attended, they had a gold mine. However, the person or persons who owned or ran the business obviously hit the lottery. This school was a sham. I had students loans up the wazoo and they got there money when I filed my taxes every year until it was paid off. Class action lawsuit would be the right step but who do we sue? No one knows what or where to go. Any suggestions?

United Schools had several corporations listed under their name. United Truck Master, United Institute of Technology or UTI and United Travel Schools. The company filed bankruptcy through the Tampa Florida Bankruptcy Court. I believe that United Truck Master was bought out by Truck Master which still operates out of the Tampa Fairgrounds. The company was also affiliated with Pittsburgh Technical Institute or PTI. I believe they all closed when they filed bankruptcy. The original company ran there offices out of Clearwater Florida on US Highway 19. You may want to contact the Tampa Bankruptcy court in Florida. Hope this helps.

I have the same problem with this school,and i have had the payments owed to this taken from 3 tax refunds many years ago.And last year i recieved a nasty letter from the Dept.Of Education saying i owe over $15.000.00 for a loan that has alredy been payed for.I agree we need to get an attorney to take our case,and join together and get a law suit in effect soon as possible .Somebody somewhere is using us to pay off there debts.

I also am a victim of the this horrible nightmare ! I attended in May 1988 and now some company is after me for the money. Which more than tripled. They took my income tax this year after not hearing form them in almost 24 years ! I contacted the Attorney General's office in Florida and she was not help. Told me to contact DOE or get an attorney. Yeah what ever. Anyone got any info about this ?
