Regardless..... They deserve a refund by the head institution. Franchise or no franchise.

Apparently this is the way Sylvan treats their customers.

It is bad business practice, and word of mouth will spread quickly.

I'm sure their will be lawsuits pending if the money is not returned. That is just unbeliveable that they are refusing to refund the money and are just taking it and running with it.

I paid for the tuition for my step-daughter by check, because it was the lowest cost- Imagine my anger when the center closed without warning only 2 weeks after they accepted my check! If I knew an attorney who would take this case, maybe they could turn it into a class-action suit against both Mitch
Kupperman AND Sylvan- I may not get my money back, but I would get justice. Makes me wonder what the CT attorney general office is doing if it can't help me get my money back(even if partially).
