Sorry about the lack of recent posts. I now intend to get back to the business of blogging and would be particularly keen to receive any information about World Language Academy and Seven Languages Center, which seem to be the latest sprouting of the multi-headed monster which is the multi-language academy scam of Indonesia.
We have long heard bad reports about WLA and SLC in terms of broken promises, unprofessional teachers and a curriculum which lacks focus and clarity. But the latest revelations are more shocking than just the usual incompetence and sloppy teaching. It has been alleged that both of these schools have the same owners as ILC, namely Hussein Lee and alleged rapist, Werdy Kasim. The money for the whole operation came from a lawsuit against their former employer, Celebrity Gym, and this pair have been regularly bribing government officials to stay in business. The whole tottering edifice is built in fraud and bribery.
In particular, it is alleged that these new two schools WLA and SLC are nothing but an elaborate money-laundering scheme to conceal the cash generated by the much larger ILC. The plan, according to our source, is to declare ILC bankrupt when they next have to pay the rent at their high-profile locations in malls, as they haven’t managed the businesses prudently and don’t have the capital to pay another years’ rent. In the coming months, they will close down ILC and then say there is no money left to repay the thousands of customers who have paid for courses which will never happen. In truth, the money will already have been laundered through WLA and SLC, which have the same owners anyway, enabling Lee and Kassim to keep the bulk of their ill-gotten gains.
ILC, WLA and SLC are all a criminal operation which will end in nothing but tears for Indonesian families.
