Consumer Complaint: My compaint is about the unnecessary classes XXXX sold me on. I wanted to only take XXXX cources, but the person who told me about the classes told me to take XXXX classes also to make more money. Unfortunately I signed. Shortly before I finished the guy who sold me on the classes got fired. After graduation I could not afford XXXX for both XXXX work and XXXX work so it was not possible to do both and they are both full time jobs so nobody would have time to do work in both fields. I want my XXXX related expenses terminated. It was very deceptive to want me to do both programs.
