Looking for help to train my Australian Shepherd, I signed up for a $29.95 membership for a training course. I thought it was weird that they also asked me to fax the last four digits of my credit card, along with a statement that I was approving this transaction. Supposedly this was for my own protection against credit-card fraud. At this point I decided not to sent that information as it began to smell wrong!
I recieved an email saying I should have received password access .. with an email address if I wanted to contact them.
No password access ever came, and my many emails to their 'contact me' address bounced back undeliverable.
I did start getting lots of promotional emails looking for more money.
They took the money out of my bank account.
I immediately e-mailed them asked for a refund, since the website promised a '120-day money-back guarantee with no whining, no questions asked.' Of course, no response. Although I keep getting daily e-mails with chatty little messages from the (fictitious?) Nancy Richards, president of the Dog Training Institute.
Then I tried calling them, only to get a automated voice mail message: 'No one is available to take your call.' I left a message, and have not received a call in return.
This whole thing is a scam operation out of India. Don't fall for it, because you'll never get your money back.
