Hello everyone, YES THIS SO CALLED UNIVERSITY (PCU) IS SCAM PLEASE TAKE CARE. Here's my story: I applied to Paramount California University last month, thinking it was an actual, accredited online university.
(The "counselors" (Jennifer Scott and David Boyle) sounded too professional, I would never have suspected a thing - which makes sense cuz they need to sound as professional as possible in order to steal anybody's money. I mean they gave me a really good deal and even managed to find me a scholarship seat. I went ahead to paying the "admission fees which was $299, but then as I searched the internet for more reviews, I got worried, as the negative reviews were high. Furthermore, I checked the CHEA (Council for Higher Education Accreditation) and sure enough, PCU was not listed there.
The counselors assured me that the university is listed as University of California and that PCU is the online version of University of California (***). Turns out this scam university, among many others, is owned by a Pakistani software company called Axact, that sells fake degrees and theses to foreign students. Read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axact (you'll also find the list of scam universities that are also under this company - Paramount California University is also listed there) After learning the truth, I played dumb and told them I got into a sudden financial crisis and that I need a refund of my $299.
They called me and said they're willing to help out by offering another scholarship program i could apply to and they kept giving me new offers until this "Jennifer Scott" lady got mad at me and told me she'll blacklist me from this uni as "I willingly gave up my scholarship seat" I was later sent an email confirming that a refund will be made (which I never received), so I went ahead and issued a complain to PayPall for a refund. I am still waiting for the refund.
