Hello, I am having the same trouble with the Dept. of Ed. They are saying that I owe 11,000 from when I too went to United Travel in Clearwater in 1988. The school went out of business and was supposed to have a life time job placement and they taught us on old systems that not even one airline used. I never got a penny change from these so called loans that I took out. I want to start a class action lawsuit. Let's get started
When did school close? Do you have paper work that says that?

Haven't been on here in a while....anyone have the original bankruptcy letter still??? I found an article regarding a similar issue with George Eyler, but cannot find the bankruptcy information on United Travel Schools......my mom is being garnished her SS because of this crazy loan saying she owes $10,000 for a $2500 loan. I consolidated my loan (not given any other alternative) which was also $2500....awful funny the national loan center has a record of the loan but NOT a record of the bankruptcy filing by the school.....email me at kenteoth@aol.com for a copy of what I found....

Pat, I had a similar problem, but I never participated in the correspondence school.

My loan was originally $5000, it is now over $20,000 and cannot make the DOE or ECMC understand I did not participate.

I would appreciate any information you might be able to provide, and I agree there needs to be a class action lawsuit

Me too, I ended up going to Nursing school in 1992, and now they want over $12,000 on a less than $3000 student loan for a school that closed BEFORE I could graduate.. This is illegal to enforce, according to an IRS offset statement I signed, but I guess Dept of Ed is immune to the laws of the USA, right?
Pat, you need to prove the school closed while in attendance. What was the name of the school ?

I have some records of school closings in MI which is where all the United Schools were located until the FTC got after the guy and moved to Florida...jimturnipseed@hotmai l.com

Anissa, did the school close while you were in attendance? If so, you can have it squashed through ECMC which is the colleting arm of the Department of Education

My sister and I attended the school and owe a ton of money for student loans, of which they have gone after my parents because they co-signed the loan and so the Dept. of Education is taking part of my parents Social Security Check which is not much to began with. I can't get any info on how to help. Suggestions, ideas or help would be greatly appreciated.

uanita, My wife and I also live in Dallas. After almost 23 years, we finally got her debt relieved. It ook a lot of digging, but we came up with the school closing document, submitted to ECMC and they did away with the debt. AND we are to get what ever money they collected
