3 weeks ago I called AG Affiliates in what I thought was bayshore, ny regarding the possibility of getting into the security field. I had found them on the internet. I called the number listed and was given information about classes and prices. I wanted to  loook  further with some other places before signing up with AG.
 I happened to be watching the news in the evening with my wife  and Arnold Diaz was doing a story on rip off schools and scams in New York which I found interesting.
 it turned out that the school they were investigation was scamming customers for alot of$$$ and promooses of job placement which never happened. At the end of the segment he gave a state website to check for legit schools so I wrote it down and then went on line.

The school AG AFFILIATES that I was considering to register with WAS REVOKED BY THE STATE
and this company is still operating.

EVERYONE BEWARE OF THIS GUY***** I DONT KNOW WHO TO CONTACT BUT

ACCORDING TO THE SITE HIS SECURITY SCHOOL IS NOT APPROVED OPERATE.
I also noticed on his website that he has several addresses listed as his business location
4 West Main Street Bayshore, N.Y. 11706
P.O. Box 606 Babylon, N.Y.
450 B Commack Road Deer Park , N.Y. 11729

Sonething isn't making sense  but im going to continue my search and not fall into this trap.

past complaint a mistake by JoeyaM

AUTHOR: Joeya m - ()

I am wrong about Agaffiliates Training school of 4 west main street  

4 west main street 

po box 606 Babylon ny

http://agaffiliates.com

They are a very reputable training school Mr.Greg Bravo is a high end teacher who I See would never rip any one off due to his high stature and level of his law enforcement experience.I wrote a negetive review 

due to my lack of knowledge of the level of this school.

Yes I would do business at ag affiliates. I was looking to be a guard and wrote several reviews on bad schools ..Thinking this was one of them.I was wrong.I see agaffiliates has high status. Number one school 

I also see they are fully licensed by New York State.

Ag affilites school 631-991-2620

is on my list.

 my apologies for any misunderstanding.

This is definitely a FALSE REPORT! Wow!

AUTHOR: louc83 - (United States of America)

I am a New York State licensed and certified security guard and got my state license though classes I took with AG Affiliates MONTHS after this so-called rip off "report" was posted in October 2012.

My friend got his armed guard license through them last year in 2012 and referred me to this so-called "revoked" school. I took my classes in January 2013 at two of their locations and have been licensed and working for over a month with my new license now. They even helped me get my job by helping me with my resume and sending me to my new employer without costing me one penny for that.

I have no idea what the problem could be but I have an official state ID in my possession which I could have NEVER received without this school's certifications! They are are also listed on the state's own website as a licensed security guard school in Suffolk County like a few others have already said.  So then my question is why would a "consumer" post such a very lengthy, detailed, and fraudulent report on a site like this when they do not claim to have done any business with this school that has helped so many including me?  They claim to have lost nothing, that they never even visited the place, so why are they so pissed?  Are they so concerned about their fellow man? LOL  I don't think so. Something else must be up with "joeya" who cannot seem to even spell. And thank goodness because I have my license and a job through the school he told a BIG falsehood about!

Other Security Company constantly slings mud

AUTHOR: rny - (United States of America)

I know three people who had a new opportunity at gainful employment with this training school. One of them is a wounded vet (my cousin) who was trained for free. He loved it so much he got two of his friends to go and they found good jobs! He did research on the Department of States web site and saw that AG Affiliates was a great school. He said he spoke to one of the trainers (who was actually ex-black ops , ex navy seal...had a whole bunch of credentials) and that the bad reports were spam.

Owners of other schools have no morals. They purposely slam this school to knock it down. I think thats pretty dirty. All I know is I'm thinking about becoming a security guard now because there seems to be a demand for it. I know which one I'm going to. They helped my cousin out without charge and that speaks VOLUMES to me about the character of this school's mission. I'm in! AG Affiliates rocks!

This Is a Totally Untrue Report and They Train Wounded Warriors FREE!

AUTHOR: VinMan81 - (United States of America)

It is a crying shame that someone would post such a negative, cutting, and false report about a company that trains Wounded Warrior Heroes that served our country and then places them into jobs for FREE!  It has done so for years, and pays special attention to all veterans, not just those wounded in combat or with service connected disabilities.

The person who posted this report talks about "this guy" but there are quite a few instructors at AG Affiliates that specialize in different areas.  It is a real company and a company I know personally. They are definitely licensed by New York State to operate as some have already indicated above. I  am currently an advanced student, and am PROUD to say that I was trained by those who were former US military special operations teams (Green Berets and Navy SEALs, etc.) and also from law enforcement. The head of the school was once a US marshal and his associate was FBI among things.

It is very easy to check all of this out yourself by going to New York State's own web site. All you have to do is put in the search terms "New York State security guard license" and the state Criminal Justice Services official web site comes right up. The state's site has links on it to the approved and licensed schools, and AG Affiliates is definitely listed under "Suffolk County". 

While I appreciate RipOff Report's efforts to protect consumers and like its general style, I am giving a "thumbs down" to whoever wrote the original complaint as it hurts the school's reputation and therefore effectively cripples their efforts to help the Wounded Warriors and others in need in some way. 

Why doesn't RipOff Report go online for themselves and set the record straight!

THIS REPORT IS FALSE, THEY ARE NOT REVOKED!

AUTHOR: Cristilaw - (United States of America)

I don't know what the problem is because my son used them to get his security guard certification.  I found this ripoff site and report while looking for their phone number again on Google, and I immediately went to the NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services site today only to find that they are NOT REVOKED and are IN FACT are listed on the approved security guard school list under SUFFOLK COUNTY.

Anyone can see this for themselves right here on the OFFICIAL WEB SITE OF THE NYS Division of Criminal Justice Services right here: 

http://www.criminaljustice.ny.gov/ops/docs/sgtraining/pubs/sgpapprovedschls.pdf 

I do not know what the motivation was for the person who wrote this complaint, but whatever the case there seems to be some misunderstanding about this school by him.
