I called the number and they charged me $129 to my credit card. I have proof of this from my statement. I signed up on the website they gave me: www.workalliance.com for a local postal exam. I waited 5 months for the closing date, and never received any information regarding my postal exam (even waiting 2 weeks after the closing date). I tried accessing the website again, and it won't come up anymore. That $129 has been on my credit card at 14% since (It's not November). I am so angry as I was looking for a career change, and this has put a huge damper on my life and my career path. I also do not have a lot of money right now, so this charge is a lot to me. I feel so betrayed.

EXAM SERVICES IS NOT A SCAM...YOU NEED TO LISTEN AND READ WHAT WAS TOLD TO YOU ALL!

AUTHOR: Brion - (U.S.A.)

IT AMAZES ME HOW INDIVIDUALS WANT TO BADGER SOMEONE OR THING FOR THEIR OWN IDIOTIC MISTAKES.

EXAM SERVICES IS A COMPANY THAT SELLS STUDY MATERIALS FOR THE POSTAL BATTERY EXAM.. WHEN YOU TALK TO A REP, THEY ARE BASICALLY READING A SCRIPT THATS VERBATIM WORD FOR WORD, WITH THE ABILITY TO ADD INFORMATION THATS TRUE.... I WORKED AT EXAM SERVICES ON TWO OCCASIONS AND THE OWNER IS A GREAT PERSON WHO LOOKS OUT FOR HIS EMPLOYEES. NOW I DONT AGREE WITH SOME OF THE RULES AT THE JOB BUT I GUESS EMPLOYEES ARE TREATED LIKE KIDS BECAUSE PEOPLE TEND TO TAKE JOBS FOR GRANTED.

EXAM SERVICES CLEARLY STATE THAT THEY ARE "NOT THE POSTAL SERVICE", THEY SELL STUDY MATERIALS FOR THE POSTAL BATTER EXAM...

THEY DO....OFFER A REFUND AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE MATERIAL ONLY IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS THAT ARE EXPLAINED TO EACH BUYER.....
YOU ARE ADVISED THAT IF YOU #1 FAIL THE EXAM OR #2 DONT GET HIRED AFTER A INTERVIEW, THEN AND ONLY THEN WILL YOU BE GRANTED A REFUND...THIS IS EXPLAINED TO YOU IDIOTS ON 3 OCCASSIONS, EVEN AFTER YOUR PAYMENT IS TAKEN VIA CREDIT CARD OR YOU SEND MONEY ORDER IN.

IF YOU PASS THE TEST BUT DONT GET A INTERVIEW OR YOU DONT TAKE THE TEST AT ALL, YOU DONT RECEIVE YOUR MONEY. THAT IS THE POLICY EXPLAINED TO EACH BUYER ON 3 OCCASIONS. NOW IF YOU COMPLAINING ABOUT NOT GETTING YOUR MONEY BACK, MAYBE YOU NEED TO REREAD THE PAPERWORK THAT WAS SENT TO YOU OR GO BACK TO SCHOOL AND LEARN ENGLISH.

THE SERVICE ISNT A RIP OFF BECAUSE PLENTY OF PEOPLE HAVE RECEIVED JOBS DUE TO THE STUDY MATERIALS BECAUSE THEY ACTUALLY "STUDIED". UNLIKE OTHER COMPANIES, EXAM SERVICES IS NOT A FLY BY NIGHT FIRM, NOR DO THEY ILLEGAL TAKE YOUR INFORMATION. THEY HAVE BEEN DISPLAYED IN THE AJC NEWSPAPER FOR METRO ATLANTA AND THE OWNER HAS HAD INFORMATION AND HIS PICTURE IN THE PAPER ABOUT HOW WONDERFUL HIS MULTIMILLION DOLLAR COMPANY IS.

I WOULD AGREE AT FIRST IT DIDNT SEEM THE COMPANY PAID ENOUGH FOR THE WEEKLY STRESS THATS UPON THEM TO MEET CERTAIN NUMBERS...BUT AT LEAST THE BASE PAY HAS RISEN FROM $10 TO $12 A HOUR BEFORE COMMISSION...ALL REPS START OFF AT $3-5 DOLLARS PER SALES PENDING IF ITS CREDIT CARD OR MAIL IN.....AFTER A PERIOD OF TIME THE COMMISSION OF EACH SELL INCREASES TO AS MUCH AS $30. THIS NORMALLY TAKES A YEAR TO ACHIEVE BUT THE COMPANY IS LEGIT....

AS FOR THE WEBSITE NOT WORKING ONE DAY, THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANY COMPANY......REREAD THE REFUND POLICY PEOPLE AND MAKE SURE YOU LISTEN BEFORE YOU PURCHASE....BY THE WAY, ARE ANY OF YOU EDUCATED TO KNOW YOU CAN DISPUTE CHARGES ON YOUR CREDIT CARD BY CALLIN YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY...A BUNCH OF IDIOTS I SAY .

Corrected Information - website

AUTHOR: Rwhite - (U.S.A.)

The proper website is www.usworkalliance.com. This site is functional and secured for the privacy and protection of the consumers. It is subject to occasional down times for maintenance and update but these are limited. This site is a tool to assist with finding the postal opening in an area but the actual acceptance of an individual and the notification of a testing location is dependant on the US Post Office that handles all exams. The closing date is not a deadline for notification but only a deadline for interested applicants to have their information submitted by. The Post Office will then notify a person of the testing time and location as they prepare to offer the next exam in that area for which there is space available. Exam Services does offer a customer support group that will assists an individual as much as possible but they cannot speed up the post office. Their customer support hot line is 800-584-1859.

#7 Consumer Suggestion

domain is now for sale.

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

The domain was registered in Samoa. I'm sorry, but it appears that you have been ripped off. You might go ahead and file the appropriate complaints with the NYS AG, FTC and FBI - it could help others.

I would still contact your credit card company and dispute the charge. The credit card companies have different policies regarding how long you have to dispute charges, and perhaps your CC company will help you.

The difficulty with your situation is the time that has elapsed. I suspect that whatever account they used to received payments has long been closed and the scammers have moved on.

In the future: if you're looking for a government job, check with the agency itself as to job requirements, testing dates, etc. Use the telephone or official agency websites to find out when, where tests are given. There is no need to pay any private agency to find this information - it's readily available from the particular government agencies for free.
