College Says Student Recruiters Are Bogus

JERSEY CITY (CN) - Aspen University says in Hudson County Court that it paid $63,000 to a recruiter, Halyard Education Partners and Elearner.com, under a contract in which the college agreed to pay the defendants for each "qualified lead" - i.e., each student who might want to attend Aspen. But the leads were bogus.

Aspen claims in Hudson County Court that most of the 2,790 "leads" the defendants provided were fraudulent. It says it paid them $63,825 and the defendants wrongly demand $180,000 more.
