Vernon, NJ asked in Civil Litigation and Contracts for New Jersey

Q: Any exception I can use for a small claim I’m abt to file for an online course w/ a no refund policy I purchased ?

Thank you for your time. I purchased 2 online courses earlier this year. 1 in January for 1257.00 the other in March for 750. I fell sick within 2 weeks and I am still recovering to this day. I have prepared limited medical documents since I don’t have health coverage along with an explanation.

For the course in January via a chat message- I was told by a sales rep I could get a refund if asked. Now of course rep is denying the conversation. Really would like to have something i can use to bolster my SC complaints

God Bless the respondents and this wonderful service! Smile

A: The best course of action is to file a small claims complaint demanding the return of the paid tuition. If no settlement is agreed to, the matter will be heard by a judge. The judge will determine whether a refund is warranted. The judge’s decision will decide the issue.
