Listen I'm not here to take advantage of anyone as well as I surely don't want to be taken advantage of by someone else. I am trying to better my family and when I find someone, or ones, scamming us public I felt the need to bring it to light to inform others of this scam.
I contacted a company off of an ad on Craigslist named GCT CDL Training in Dallas Texas about getting a job and my CDL in 1 week. What I found concerning was no one answers the 888-962-2352 number advertised in their ad. I called several times no answer. I googled the number and found out it was a company named CDL Connection Dallas which is not in Dallas and not a company named GCT. As a matter of fact I found nothing in trucking in Texas named GCT CDL Training. CDL Connection Dallas is located in McKinney Texas not in Dallas.
It's not even a company. I googled CDL Connection Dallas and I found two addresses. [continued below]....
..... One address 3007 E University Drive Mckinney, Tx 75069 with a phone number of 972-880-6002. I also found a second address of 1400 U. S. 380 McKinney, TX 75069 with the same number. When I clicked on the web address www.cdlconnectiondallas.com WOW I found a surprise.
The website looks like a 5 year old created it not some professional trucking company. Go look at their truck advertised, LOL, what a piece of crap they are using to train with. It is 30 years old and nothing like today's trucks. It is a old medium duty day cab and an 30 year old UPS trailer. Doesn't even look like their ad on Craigslist with late model trucks. How are you going to drive a truck like the companies have today with learning on that piece of crap. Here is how their ad looks on Craigslist ... http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/trp/3231644555.html .
I got an email from some guy named Robert using a guy named Jesse Olivero's email Jesse Olivero<firstname.lastname@example.org . It read they were so overwhelmed with business and apologizing taking so long to get back to me. Kind of weird wouldn't you say. The phone number Robert used was 469-888-5309 and it goes to some place in Irving that does Cosmetic Skin Care Retailer 2063 Town East Mall, Mesquite TX, 75150 not Dallas or McKinney. I called it several times and no one answers it. Strange for such a big company.
I took the liberty to drive to their office to go see what was up and if they were for real. I wasn't surprised at what I found. I found the same crappy old truck as in their website parked in front of some old shop on a rural road that has junk all around it. The shop looked like they repair old cars and sold junk.
Go goggle the location here and see for yourself 3007 e university Dr., McKinney, tx 75069 TX http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sclient=psy-ab&q=3007+East+University+Drive%2C+McKinney%2C+TX&oq=3007+east+ university&gs_l=hp.1.0.38i17l4.5570.13234.0.16622.214.171.124.0.0.0.164.2045. 13j7.20.0.les%3B..0.0...1c.gjUeGgJ1CXc&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.&fp =405c4b511f2a1632&biw=1441&bih=1343
Here is the address on 1400 U.

All I can say is that I want a better future for myself & my family. After what I found with this company, or whoever they really are, I will not go here to get my CDL & job. The place was a dump, their truck was 30 years old and a piece of crap, nothing like the trucks they advertise. This person is not a school, nor a company, NOR A JOB! This place is a SCAM!!!
I hope this report was informative. Go do the research yourself and see the truth for yourself.
