AABIE & RES-COM people, if any of you think you work for honest and legitimate organization. Then please respond in this forum. My friend has lost about $700 from recurring charges on his credit card. He lives within driving distance of Sacramento. He has wanted to go to your offices and come face-to-face with you all. However, you all refused to give him your physical address. If he could get your physical address then he'd jump in his pick-up truck and put the hammer-down on his way to greet you.

My friend also has contacted the California Contractor's State License Board, 9821 Business Park Dr., Sacramento, CA 95827, tel 800-321-2752. My friend was promised a job with Res-Com as a mold inspector when he completed three AABIE courses.

How can Res-Com give people jobs if they don't have a contractor's license? Isn't promising jobs one the many practices Res-Com was suppose to stop per violation problems investigated by the Better Business Bureau BBB of Sacramento, 916-443-6843? BBB Presently the BBB have 69 reported complaints. Most of these complaints are about promising employeement or taking peoples money for highly questionable reasons and not refunding it.

Regarding AABIE, the chief guy over there says he has a PHD in micro-biology. What university did he get that degree? Why on the AABIA website when he signed his name on certificate he doesn't put PHD behind it?

AABIE and Res-Com please stop hiding behind P.O. Box addresses. Please stop promising jobs for your company when you're mainly only interested in selling AABIE courses for $290 and then through sneaky convoluted terms pegging people's credit cards for fees that are totally un-warranted.

AABIE come out into the open. AABIE is not a national organization, it has no chapters in Nevada nor New Mexico nor Oregon nor Washington nor Utah nor Texas nor Florida nor Idaho nor Colorado. Also, what kind of Chapter is the one Sacramento,Ca? What looks like and smells like Res-Com is Res-Com in my book. When my friend finds out your address, and he will, I hope that he brings a KCRA news truck with him.

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!


Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.

According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.

If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.

Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!


Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.

And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.

Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.

If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.


If the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here.

Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action.

And good luck Let us know how you do!

STOP! ..before you think about using the Better Business Bureau (BBB)... CLICK HERE to see how other consumers were victimized by the BBB's false or misleading information. Don't be fooled! It has been reported, when there are thousands of complaints and other investigations underway by authorities, the BBB has no choice but to finally give an UNsatisfactory rating to a BBB member business that is paying the BBB big membership fees every year. When a business is reported that is NOT a BBB member, BBB files WILL more likely show an UNsatisfactory rating, then reportedly shake down that company to become a member of the BBB. One positive thing about the BBB is, either way, if a business has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, you can be sure, the business is bad. But what about all those BBB member businesses that had complaints filed against them? Consumers never get to hear about them. What about the BBB advertising to the public? Is this a false and misleading perception they are giving about consumer confidence when dealing with a business?
