The VLC "Virtual Learning Center"

I am (was) in the transcription portion of the Medical Transcription course. After a break due to moving, I just discovered today (by looking for an answer key to a transcription assignment online) that the VLC does not exist anymore. I have all my receipts, assignments, and grades printed out in a binder. I'm shocked, angry and want my money back. I paid $873.95 on February 19th of 2009 for the MT Course-Expert Certificate. I spent almost an entire year studying medical terminology while juggling 5 kids and hectic family schedules only to find that what I was working towards is nonexistent. You'd better believe I'm pissed. I won't be taking any online courses again unless it's part of an accredited college or university. I'd like any info anyone has as well. kaghoppe@***.net

Wow! You all didn't pay that much at all.

I'm sorry you were robbed out of your money and did not complete it, that is just so wrong on many levels. I payed almost 2,000 for my course. It took me a year to finish as I was working 12-hour days at my factory job that was moving to Mexico. I landed a job at a company nearby for six months and then finally accepted to work from home after several hundred resumes being sent out.

I have now been working from home from the same company for 10 years now. I'm so sorry this happened to you. Is there any way to find out if there is a court order from multiple clients ordering them to pay clients back?

This is the first I'm hearing of it closing, but then again it has been many years since I gone there. Sorry again :(

I just happened to do a search for this school to find out what the latest was. I did hear the school had closed at one point and reopened under new management.

I graduated with VLC in August 2003 in only 8 months' time. I keep reading so many who take long breaks, like 2 or more years-- a huge no no IMO. I'm so sorry to hear of so many that were unable to complete the course due to school closing and losing their money. I also read someone graduated a couple years ago and has yet to find a job.

I landed a job a week out of school and am now working for my current company just over 3 years typing ER for a hospital in NC bringing home net pay $3000+/month (and climbing), full-time status. I think those having trouble finding employment need to blame themselves rather than the course itself if you're not passing the tests.

Again, so sorry to those who were unable to complete the course and lost your money. Just unacceptable.

The VLC disappeared so I can't finish my studies.

On April 20, 2005, I paid $1457.95 for a course with The VLC. On February 02, 2007, I paid an additional $449 for the internship program. I have kept all past emails and correspondence, including receipts for payment and grades. I was in the last part of the program and the school has disappeared. For the past several weeks, there have been no responses to emails or submitted assignments. In the latter part of November, 2009, I attempted to access the school forum and check my grades. I could not do either. I assumed there was a problem with the website and waited several weeks. In December 2009, I attempted again to contact the instructors and access the site. I can still access the site but no grades or forum. Emails are bounced back. Telephone numbers are disconnected. On December 23, I filed a complaint with the Ontario Canada BBB. On December 24, I saw notification that the company "appears to be out of business" on the BBB site. Their student recruitment website http://www.thevlc.com/ is still up. There are several reputable organizations' logos on the bottom of the page, and a blurb that says " The Virtual Learning Center are proud members of AHIMA, AMBA, AAPC, adhi, and BBB". They are not. I have been in contact with 2 other VLC students and we have all been doing research. One student questioned these organizations. AHIMA claims never to have heard of them and their BBB membership has expired. She has not yet received replies from the others. There are several names associated with the VLC. Owners are Stephen B. St. Louis, Bill Redford and Pat Filice. Others are Amy Rudd, Ken Mack, and instructors Carol Simpson and Linda Najar (who claims to be 'exclusive transcriber to the president of On-time Transcription').. Alternate methods of contacting these people have failed. They are/were owned by a group called Mindsplore (Stephen B. St. Louis, Bill Redford and Pat Filice), along with http://www.homeworkers.org/. This is the information that is on their website; Canada: Virtual Learning Center, 143 Main St. East, Suite 203, Hamilton, ON L8N 1G4 Canada USA: Virtual Learning Center, 1925 Pine Ave., Suite 9035, Niagara Falls, NY 14301 U.S.A. Phone : (905) 521-****, Toll Free : (866) 539-****, Fax : (905) 521-**** (24 hr.) Email : support@***.com Hours : Monday-Friday 9am-5pm EST (NONE OF WHICH IS WORKING) Please assist me in resolving this. I want my money back, and I certainly don't want this happening to anyone else. I now have to begin researching other schools, who will not accept any grades or give credit for what I have learned. I have already asked. This is a time-sensitive issue, as my fulltime job ended last week, and I need to start back at square one. Not only am I out the $2000 that I paid, I have nothing to show for all of the work that I have completed.

So, after some health and family issues and continuing through some of my textbooks, I finally get a chance to get started with the virtual correspondence to find out the same as what many of have posted here.v.a.p.azevedo@***.com

#351030

I too paid for the program. However, I was told in '08 that the program did not support VISTA operating systems.

I was floored because that was all you could get on a laptop. I explained how I just got a lap top and that was the operating system. They told me too bad, maybe in the future. So I stopped putting forth the efforts.

They would not refund my money then. I went another direction, now I am heading back to where the transcription began (WI) and was interested in seeing if they had upgraded to VISTA.

Can't find 'em. Saw this post....go figure right?!

I'm contacting a a Class Actiion Litgation Attorney on Monday to see if I can get this resolved. However, it will take more than just myself for this lawsuit.

If he should decide to take it, he will need more than just my word. By helping me out, you will also be helping yourselves out as well. We all went into this course to help ourselves out.

We need to stand together and let them know, that we're NOT going to let them rip us off in this fashion. Please let me know if you are in at: NBROWN55@***.rr.com

#221413

I too signed up for this course, and forked over $3000 in one payment. Sure,I received my materials, and a few of the online lessons.

I had to take a break in the course and when I tried to go back into it and low and behold I can't. Let me know if any of you have or are receiving any help in getting our money back.

Thank you!! NBROWN55@***.rr.com

#220373

I thought about signing up a few years ago....I just saw all your complaints. Will keep you in my prayers.

Hope you all get your money back. :roll

#204011

I turned in a dispute with my credit card company and got my money back. I did belong to a group that was trying to figure out what was going on.

I guess his wife refused to give the money back to all of the students. I think they knew they were going to close down because the school went from 50 some employees to 3 when the school closed. There was one girl in the group that had her money taken from her after the school knew they were closing down so that would be considered as fraud. We contacted the police department in Canada and the guy working on the case said there was not fraud even though we had evidence.

There wasn't anywhere we could go with it. Good luck to everyone and I hope there is a solution, they shouldn't be able to get away with this.

#201931

Yup same here, I signed at the end of 2007, juggled 2 other jobs and was finally at the end of the transcription course when.....One day the site wasn't working! My money over 3000$ gone. If there is a list of people doing a law suit please let me know, I can't afford the loss.
