Default Beware of Harriet Educational Group Scam

Please look at the following story on Singapore Straits Times for a scam from Harriet Educational Group. Currently police is now investigating this company. Both agents and students may have to make police report in order to take back the money.

Private school in dispute with agents
At least 9 file police reports over money paid for training and licence; fees transparent, says school
By Jane Ng
SEVERAL agents who were supposed to recruit students for private school Harriet Educational Group have filed reports with the police complaining about the practices of the Tanjong Pagar institution.
These agents said they each gave the school between $20,000 and $50,000 for training and a licence that would allow them to sign up foreign and local students.

However, some saw their services terminated within a year, causing them to lose their investments.

Now, at least nine of these agents, called international student consultants or country managers, have lodged police reports against the school.

When contacted, Harriet chief executive James Chua brushed aside the complaints, saying 'anyone can make a police report'.

Read the full story in The Straits Times today.
