Back in September, after turning down a great paying over-the-road truck driving job offer(NO family time), my family and I decided we would like to move back to the town we came from, to be closer to our family, and because THAT job was why we moved in the first place. Needing a source of income first, I logged onto our hometown's online forum, we seen that the USPS was hiring....or so we thought. "USworkalliance" was the company to contact regarding the employment position, with a provided 800 number. I called, and of course they were more than obliged to take my money (via debit card) and send me a out-dated paperback test & information "book."
The day after all this, I had mail to deliver. I decided to go inside and ask the postmaster about this USworkalliance. Here's where the trouble begins. After I told her what I had done, she got a grim look in her face. "You didn't?" "The only way to get into the USPS is through the USPS, we do not deal with ANY outside empyment arrangements or agencies. If they mislead you into thinking that they had ANYTHING to do with us, they lied." The CAP letters are words she emphasized on.
Immediately after that, I checked to see what kind of things have been reported on these people. I found this site, along with a few others who have been scammed as well.
I contacted my bank to see if I could get the charges disputed. I did get a refund, until recently. The refund had been reversed, and I'm still out my $130. Conviently, this all happened the same day I got refunded $400 from a debit card fraud in Mexico. After all this, I am closing my account at my bank simply because they provide terrible service, primarily investigating. It's loud and clear these people cannot provide anyone with anything, other than their pockets with your money.
If anyone is brave enough to "defend" that so-called business (scam inc.), provide me with the names of USPS employees who went through you guys. Being they are not employed by you, there is no "client confidentiality." Also, just because they continue to pursue the USPS job and get it, does NOT mean USworkalliance provided any sort of assistance. Being you cannot provide legitimate testimonials, there is no real point for you to even be "in business."
As far as I know, EVERY LOCAL LIBRARY contains the books you'd need to study to take the tests. You can check these out with either a small deposit, of for free. Don't let this happen to you as well. These people will get a death-grip on your money and not let go. Their refund policy is rigged as well, basically impossible to provide the things they demand to give you your refund.
Thanks for shorting me and my family our Christmas funds. Being we live paycheck to paycheck, much like the majority or American does, the scam amount is a bit steep. How do you sleep at night?
