Raeford University

Hi everyone, I live in the Caribbean and I got a call from a university called RAEFORD ONLINE UNIVERSITY. The site looks very legit, but when I looked up the accreditations I found one of them on your banned list and couldn’t find the others. Also, they are very much similar to Redford University. I foolishly didn’t research this website carefully before I got caught up with the scholarships etc. they offered me. I paid them some money and would like to get it back is this possible? Also, can you tell me if this is a valid institution?
