Philadelphia School Fraud Lawyer

School fraud occurs when a for-profit school or place of education promises more of an education than it can provide. Often educators and administrators point to inflated or entirely false test scores, reports, statistics or fake certifications. These types of institutions are for-profit schools, including private schools, charter schools, vocational schools and colleges, online schools and universities.

  • Fake testimonials or accounts of job placements
