Finaid Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Student financial aid in the United States is funding that is available exclusively to students attending a post-secondary educational institution in the United States. This funding is to assist in covering the many costs incurred in the pursuit of post-secondary education. Financial aid is available from federal and state governments, educational institutions, and private organizations.
An angry customer shared his experience, "I RECEIVED ZERO $0 from financial aid. OMG, don't go to that Michael Chen, he was such a painful person to deal, he only takes people money and doesn't do his work. I heard something wrong with his license too (some of his licenses were suspended). He is so LAZY, UNPROFESSIONAL and BAD ATTITUDE. He only communicated with you one time (at your initial sign in). As a result, I RECEIVED ZERO $0 of financial aid at all. I signed up with him to help my kid to get financial aid. Just at the initial meeting, the receptionist asked me to pay her upfront $100 which she didn't mention it when I called to schedule appointment. He took all of the documents and told me $1000 application per school (at that time my kid applied for 7 schools so I paid $7000 in total), which is something I thought it would have been alright and he took a picture of my face. I don't know why that's necessary. In additional to getting my money, he persuaded me to buy some oil wells from him. I told him, I gave him all the money he asked for and I didn't want to have any other investment. He then turned his face and kicked me out of his office. The following months were the most painful months I had to deal with - 1. He didn't reply any of the emails from the financial office 2. He didn't reply any of my phone calls and emails (I sent this scammer numerously emails). 3. His receptionist always said Michael Chen were out of town (later, I found out the best time to get a hold of him was after 5pm when that girl left). 4. Until the day of the deadline, I was crying and begging him to reply to the financial aid office and all he told me "WHY ARE YOU PUSHING ME?" He hanged up on me right away. Without doing any work, of course, my kid didn't received any financial aid at all. It was such a nightmare for all the money I spent and all the stress I experienced with Michael Chen's bad attitude. This guy just takes your money and does nothing at all, he is a scammer and don't trust him with you hard working money because you won't get a penny from financial aid."
