Franklin credit union named in NY AG case against Indiana company

Southeast Financial Credit Union has become ensnared in the New York attorney general's case against an Indianapolis company that sells study guides. AG Eric Schneiderman is accusing The College Network of using false and deceptive business practices.

The suit alleges that The College Network charged consumers approximately $500 for each study guide and required prospective students to purchase upfront guides for every course they would need to earn their degree from Excelsior. In many cases, the total cost of the network’s program exceeded $10,000, which forced most consumers to accept the financing offered by The College Network. In addition, in many cases, the network did not disclose that the loans were being provided by Southeast Financial Credit Union.

A spokesman for the Franklin-based credit union, which has about $450 million in assets and last year posted a net loss of $3.1 million, says the institution shouldn't be a co-defendant in the case against The College Network. Read more here.
