    I appreciate your passion, and thanks for the advise. You really sum it all up . . . it’s going to take everyone who has been a victim of these abuses and scams to step forward and be noticed and heard . . . it’s the only way these things can get changed. These companies and schools have gotten away with these scams for too many years, and now “our” voices are being heard and noticed . . . keep it up. One person can’t do it . . . it will take everyone who has ever been victimized by this industry to speak out and move forward in holding them responsible for their actions and letting them know that “we” just are not going to let it continue any longer . . . thanks
