Fraud Suit Targets Call Center Pushing Predatory CollegesFebruary 23, 2018 |
by David Halperin
A former employee of a call center that pushed students into predatory for-profit colleges has initiated a blockbuster whistleblower lawsuit on behalf of taxpayers against his former employer, Utah-based EduTrek, and against numerous for-profit colleges that have used the company to recruit new students. The complaint, filed with the federal court in Utah in 2016, was unsealed today.
Republic Report wrote about the ex-employee, retired U.S. Army captain Jack Suenram, in 2014. Suenram had recently quit the EduTrek call center, called EdSoup, after working there for four years.
