Can anyone do anything to help the people who have been dooped by fraudulent practices having to do with Microsoft Job Training Programs.

My son and daughter in law got sucked into the New Horizons schooling for Microsoft IT Job Training from a fraudulent ad in a newspaper in Los Angeles. New Horizons advertised they were offering jobs and when all the people got there to apply they were fed the sales pitch for the school and sucked into the scam. They were talked into schooling that promised job placement and a private loan for 18,000 each which is now at 10% and rising and cannot be refinanced and have pretty much nothing to show for it. Do they have any recourse?
