...did not accept TCN stuff anymore she then told me about TCN scam and how she talks to atleast a couple people in the same situation everyday she told me the price that i could have paid had i just used Excelsior directly and i would get Financial aid! I didnt want to believe it so i called TCN and talked to several different people and got vague run around in circles answers. I stopped the payments and now here it is 2 years later and i literally get phone calls every three months or so from some company saying they are representing TCN and that TCN is currently moving my account to prelegal status where they will seek legal actions and the right to enforce that by any means necessary should i not pay and what are my intentions. The last time they called which was today the guy told me that the SCHOOL was...
