See if you can find a subsidized or free law clinic near you who can help you resolve your problem with Harcourt.
If you quit with them because they were not living up to their promises, you would probably have a case. If it was because you changed your mind, they may have the advantage. Again, a clinic should be able to help or advise you.
I looked them up on the internet, while their home materials correspondance class policies, etc were not listed on the net, their online policies were; every i was dotted and t crossed. I have a feeling that they included a cancellation fee whether you realized it or not. By signing a statement agreeing you would pay $x dollars/month for x# of months, it could be binding. Again, check the small print and in some cases it is on the back.
If so, a clininc could help you settle or make a payment schedule.
You can't run or hide for long becasue they have your social security number. YOur social is used for jobs. If they can't access money through a bank account, if they pursue it enough, some states will let them garnish wages. YOu need to resolve this problem so you can live life without worrying about someone finding you and taking your money.
