My son Niket Anand was initially enrolled in the Tiny Tiger Program of ATA. Within a month, MR Brotherton and Mr Box of Baymeadows Branch of ATA, Jacksonville was trying to convince us to put my son into the Leadership program,
According to their opinion my son was doing great over there. I told them very clearly that my Job is not
permanent here, They told us that it is not a big issue, It will take only $50 to cancel the contract. Even i have not signed any contract with ATA and ASF international. Finally they put my son into Leadership Program without signing me the contract. I have a copy of their said contract, which is not signed by me.
In the middle of June, I moved to Virginia because i lost my Job in Jacksonville. In the end of June, I contacted Mr Box and Mr Brotherton to cancel their said contract, their response was very bad, the same guys who used to talk to us every day, is not ready to talk to us anymore. They are just doing this business to fool the people.
Finally they told me to contact headquarter to cancel the contract. When i contacted the headquarter, they told us to fax the cancelation letter, which i did. They said it will take 15 days to cancel the contract.
After two week when we contacted their headquarter, they were not ready to cancel the contract.ATA is a greedy and unethical company. People should not join these places.
Needless to say anything about this unethical company, I will not do that. I am going to file a complaint with the Florida Better Business Bureau about ATA Black Belt Academy and ASF, and will be filing a complaint with the BBB of Colorado, where ASF is based. I will also contact the Colorado Attorney General's Office to file a complaint about this company. I urge anyone who has been ripped off or harassed by ASF's unethical billing practices to do the same.
Even though my son loved the school and the instructors, I will never put my child in another ATA or ASF
International affiliated school again.
