      Same scam was pulled on us the first day of Magic college. The entire faculty disappeared, we were very angry and impressed.

    There seems to be a higher than normal percentage of sheisters in the language school business. It probably should be regulated more closely but doesn’t everyone risk their money when paying up front for anything?

          Mrs. Simpson, don’t you worry. I watched Matlock in a bar last night, the sound wasn’t on, but I think I got the gist of it

      Whilst its a fairly unpleasant situation for these unfortunate people. Is it reasonable to expect the state to pick up the tabs for the victims of scam artists. Or for the creditors of failed businesses – which (technically) covers this group.
      Historically, it only picks up the tabs of bankers.

    What a Disgrace!! This country is such an embarrassment sometimes, have they still not regulated these language schools?

    shouldn’t the Gardai be called in to investigate this carry-on? the blonde wan off the RTE news has been chasing this story for quite some time but no indication yet that the cops are involved.

    No doubt the owners are members of golf and rugby clubs, go to Mass every Sunday, send their kids to private schools and are considered to be fine upstanding members of the community.

    That old Irish business tradition of making money from shafting people instead of producing or offering a good quality service or product is alive and well. The other way of making money of course is to shaft your suppliers and re-open under a new name.

    Half of south county Dublin is populated with such w*nkers.
