Family Tree DNA charges hundreds of dollars for DNA testing, then refuses to deliver ANY results.

After 3 months of excuses, enough is enough.  Family Tree DNA is a total RIP OFF...don't waste your money.

#1 Author of original report

Yes I've contacted FTDNA REPEATEDLY

AUTHOR: Betsy - ()

I'm the original poster and I've contacted Family Tree DNA repeatedly, and have been given the "we're upgrading our dB software" excuse for MONTHS.

This is the message I've been getting on my results page for MONTHS, Family Tree DNA just keeps changing the date.

"We've updated your "expected results date" to reflect the current
timeframe in which we anticipate them being available. We apologize for
the delay, but while the lab portion of your testing is complete, the
Family Finder program is transitioning from Human Genomic Build 36 to
Build 37. "

Family Tree DNA is still selling tests and promising results in 4-6 weeks, while I've been waiting for the results I paid for in DECEMBER 2012.

Family Tree DNA is committing consumer fraud and needs to be investigated by the Texas Attorney General's office!
