More than 100 complaints have been filed on these companies with the BBB, ripoff report and other consumer reporting organizations for not honoring delivery, quality or guarantees. This company has a history of retiring websites once complaints reach a certain level.

Beware of "employment or your money back guarantees". Both resumewritinggroup.com and resumesguaranteed.com require the following to get your money back:
"A) You, the purchaser must provide reasonable proof that you submitted your resume to at least 30 prospective employers (in the form of certified mail receipts or verifiable fax transmission receipts)."
Nobody conducts a job search using certified letters and very few companies accept faxes. If you conduct a job search on line and do not find a job, you are not eligible for the guarantee. The terms of the guarantee are very difficult to find on their websites and only after someone places a claim are they told that they did not follow the rules to file a claim and it is denied.
"At our company's sole discretion, you may be asked to provide proof of continued unemployment (i.e. in the form of a copy of a recent unemployment check or related/verifiable paperwork)."
You could be asked for a letter for the IRS stating you did not earn any money.
for the resumewritinggroup.com you have a 15 day window to file a request. If file earlier or later than 15 days from the day you receive your resume you will be denied a refund.
In addition, the "resume writing group" website claims to have done resumes for years.

We've written more than 100,000 resumes for 100,000 professionals in 62 countries worldwide!"
although their url registration from WHOIS appears as follows:
Creation date: 16 Nov 2011 13:54:02
That would mean they claim to have written 10,000 resumes a month or 300 day since their url was registered.
resumeshopping.com which indicates that it is an objective review site is hosted on azoos.com server states the following:
"NO resume service is permitted
to advertise here until they have
