I enrolled at the University in 2014 and I was given proper counseling by their representatives. I offered my online exams and was awarded the Degree. They charged me additional $ for the attestations from UK & USA etc but suddenly they went offline. There is no response from the university and don't know where to find them? It was a total waste of money and efforts as this degree is just a piece of useless paper. But I was lucky that I never used it otherwise I could have been in trouble for presenting the false document. Now I am doing another degree in the same discipline from another university. I wish they don't run away.Show more...
Refund of money
Last November (2014) I applied and was accepted on 'scholarship' to do a Master's degree in Fine Arts (Film) with a USA online USA based 'University' called RAEFORD UNIVERSITY.
However, due only that I have a heavy teaching workload, I delayed the start of my studies - and I only discovered when I went to log into the main website portal this week, that the entire online 'University' has gone - vanished.
I have been defrauded of my full course payment - over $5,500 AUD ie. the online University has vanished without trace. This had full lessons once inside the login portal, with many choices of Bachelor degrees and Masters degrees. I have also been contacted at least four times by Raeford representatives immediately on payment of my course, with follow up ie. asking if I'm settling into studies. Then the phone calls stopped - sometime around late April or May 2015. I can no longer reach any of the previous email addresses :

I have been in contact with two other students via the Raeford University facebook page who also have been fully defrauded of their funds (we all paid up-front, in full, our course fees - this is not uncommon with overseas students).
Here are the online entities (that are now un-monitored or gone completely):
Official University website: http://raeforduniversity.com/ (now just a dead page - this used to house all course entry information, login portal, and general student information
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Raefo... (please read the comments by students who have been scammed; and the 'University' has removed many posts since last I logged on two months ago).
