Certkingdom Not honoring lifetime membership
I purchased the lifting membership. They changed the terms of service after my purchase and now claim it expires. Yet still list this as list package. They jacked the price by 4 times the amount for the lifetime and expect me to repurchase. This is a scam. I signed up for unlimited lifetime package and expect such. I want everyone to avoid this scam.

Computer Computer They took my money, taught seven classes, then closed the doors Bensalem, Pennsylvania
I signed up for training and the school presented itself as bein sound and stable. All reports sounded good. After I got there they let all their secretaries and recruiting personnell go. They had the Regional trainer come in to reassure us that everything was alright and a corporate recruiter was there through webcam. Classes started on Dec 7 th and were monday and wednesday from 6pm to 10pm. We were told on December 30th not to come to class and no reason was given. On Friday, Jan 1st we received an email say ing the school was closed. Copy below. Notice they didn't even have the courtesy to put our names on it. Dear Student:   It is with deep sadness and regret that announces it will cease operation and close all of the schools, effective immediately.  These actions are due to circumstances beyond the Companys control. There will be no further classes held at any of our schools.    This letter serves as written notification that all future inquires should be directed to your state agency listed below:   PA Dept. of Education 333 Market St. 12th Floor Harrisburg, PA 17126   Very truly yours, Our classes have since gotten together and hopefully with the help of our instructor and some good people we will find a place to hold our sessions and continue to get what we went there for. We at this time however, have no place to hold class, have limited computer resources, limited access to training materials , and most of us have been robbed of approximately 13,500 dollars. We are hoping that through the use of press and publicity that someone will step in and help us as a group.

kaplan university scam iowa Nationwide
 I agree with what is said about kaplan university. Such a waste when you work so hard and get charged so much. after I graduated in 2008 with a bachelor's degree I was out of work so I called them and asked them if they had job placement or at least helped you get a job and they said no. very disappointing. In 2015 I'm still not working in my field. There is no way you can pay off school loans working in a call center.

This report I just found out that AIBT is not an acredited sbcool, I attended AIBT in 1997 got my diploma and started my Associates Degree but had to drop out due to my work schedule of working 2 full time jobs and taking care of my family. Now that was in 1997 and Ive been trying to pay back my loan for the past 20 years, since my diploma is invalid then why should I have to pay that back since its no good ? And if I had continued my education through them and later I had found out that my Degree would be invalid how would that make me look in my career field ?

Abco Technology ripoff dishonest fathima sethi cancelled classes unqualified instructors scam Ripoff Los Angeles California
Abco Technology and the courses they offer are an absolute scam. I signed up for their advertised Flash class which was scheduled to begin on November 11, 2006 but didn't conclude until February 11, 2007. The instructors are all unqualified to teach their respective courses and the facility is not equipped with state of the art computer lab nor do they even have an overhead to teach. How is it possible to teach a Flash animation course without the use of an overhead and laptop for demonstration purposes? We were handed the wrong textbooks for an earlier version of the Flash program and experienced difficulties studying the program and completing the exercises until the last week of class. My instructor Fathima Sethi was never in class. She will instruct for the first 10 minutes and go on periodic breaks leaving the building or giving tours to other students and can never be found. In a 4 hour class I would find myself and the other students left alone without any assistance for over 98% of the time. It is very unprofessional for any instructors to answer personal phonecalls during class and give random tours while disrupting the class. All the objections, goals, and class project that were discussed in the first day of class never came to fruition as the instructor failed to provide instrucation and we were often left clueless with no guidance and didn't learn anything valuable. It was a complete waste of my time and money. Nothing but empty promises and lies were made and told to us. Fathima never seems to have a lesson plan ready or knew what she was doing. Instead of teaching we were basically handed a book and told to complete the exercises ourself. She has never once come prepared with a lesson plan. Overall, there class has been cancelled more than 8 times and there was a 2 week gap in between because Abco was under rennovation. Other excuses include the instructor failing to fly back after the Thanksgiving holiday break to the electricity went out and they couldn't find a electrician to get the power up. A 5 week course has been dragged on for more than 3 months! No one, including the people that work at Abco or its instructors would return phonecalls or call you back to inform you when the next class would be held once there's a cancellation. Look up Abco Technology on Google and you will also find plenty of other complaints against this scam operation including former instructors suing the school due to late and nonpayment of their salaries. Do not sign up for any classes with Abco Technology. I plan on filing a complaint with the BBB and filing a claim with my credit card company. The school and its unscrupulous, unqualified and lying instructors deserve to be reprimanded by the law and return us our hard earn money. I would never recommend this school to anybody and I will make sure to inform everyone I know to not attend Abco. LL MONTEBELLO, CaliforniaU.S.A.

Training Camp No Classes, No refund Los Angeles California Nationwide
I signed up for thir Microsoft Server 2012 MCSA 9 Day boot camp back in November 2014, It was scheudled to start in Febrauary 2015. I got an e-mail saying the class ahd not been fulfilled, and that i could either reschedule or get a full refund.   I chose the full refund. Krystina Miller was in charge of my refund, and she did respond. She originally told me that the refund process takes 6-8 weeks to complete. So I waited. The 6th week I asked for an update, and she curtly said my refund was sent out on march 26th, 2015. I waited another week, no check in the mail. I then e-mailed her again, no response. I emailed again, this time I cc'd her manager Joe, and he responded, apologized and said the refund check was not mailed out and he would mail it out tomorrow. It is now going on another week since I jave emailed with Joe, and he is no longer rsponding to my e-mails.   I paid $5,895.00 to a company to help with my future, and since they could not get the enrollment they needed they offered me a refund which i took, and now I feel like I am being pushed aside and forgotten, hoping I will go away. Today is April 14th, 2015 and I just emailed Joe and his manager. I will see what happens, but I doubt anything will change. My only other course is to higher an attorney and pursue them for my refund and anytime I lose for missing work to deal with the legal issues.

Business Computer Technical Institute ripoff Tacoma Washington
i graduated from bcti back in 2002. i originally wanted to attend the graphic desighn courses but was informed i would have to attend the microsoft sweet courses. each course was about ten grand. as i started to take theese classes i was working full time and travelling a good distance to the campus so i only attended a few days a week. off the bat i noticed how easy the classes were but assumed the first class was for people who have never touched or turned on a computer before. plus with my busy scheldule until i could switch campuses so i was closes to school i didn't mind the easiness of the classes. but as the school year progressed on i constantly complained to the teachers that i was not learning anything. i came from a good highschool and took advance business classes their. i also grew up on computers so i didn't want to express my feeling to the other students. i didn't want to make them feel bad if they weren't haveing as easy of a time as me. will admit i learned a few tricks on microsoft excell but nothing i would pay ten grand for. infact nothing i learned or would have learned at the school if i didn't already know would i pay ten grand for. and this may just be me but i taught myself as a young girl microsoft sweet. i truely beleive most of the students the i attended school with could have picked up a manual and taught themselve for freee. i even noticed the teachers would rotate so fast. as in a high turn over rate. i also noticed most teachers seemed to be teaching from some sort of manual and often needed to help from students when stuck on a question from another student. it was also taught when given an assighnment you were to go around and help everyone else once your done with your assignment. i saw more students teaching the class then a teacher. i am sure i could go on for pages but here is a few main points. at least the ones i am more concerned with. the students teaching more then the teachers, the easiness of the classes, the price of the classes, and the method in which they found you a job. i know i did not go into how they pretended to find you a job but once i can go into more detail on that once contacted Hayley Tacoma, WashingtonU.S.A.

New Horizons Computer Learning Centers Frauds, Ripoffs, Scam artists Gainesville FL
I, too, was a victim of these scam artists.  Like a previous report, I was also searching for IT jobs and never once went directly to the New Horizons website.  It was only after I applied for a job that I received a call from a recruiter from New Horizons.  I spoke with him for a bit and listened to his spiel about the training classes they offered.  I was hesitant due to the cost.  They told me about different programs at the different prices and I, initially, was interested in enrolling in the training that was a little over $14K.  I was told that the certifications in that program would only get me a help desk job at around $16/hr.  I was strong-armed into signing up for the $25,500 program for which the certifications could get me a job making between $50 and $60K.  The recruiter saw on my resume that I had no IT background other than a help desk position I had when I first got out of college.  But that was only for about 7 months.  The majority of my career experience had been spent in health care.   I went through all their classes and took my first certification test, CompTIA Network+, in October 2013.  I passed it the first time, but only barely.  I then took the Security+ certification test in January 2014 and passed it.   I took the Windows 7 certification test last week and miserably failed it.  The large majority of the questions were geared towards people who would have had career experience with Windows 7 OS, something that I was not told by anyone at New Horizons.  I am not going to take the test again because I don't have $150 to pay.  Why would I anyway only to fail it again?  So I'm in debt $25500+ with nothing to show for it, all because the only thing New Horizons is interested in is making a quick buck. And don't even get me started on their so-called Career Placement department.  I've dealt with them and all they could tell me is to give them some names of contacts at different companies in Arkansas and they would contact them to see if they had any jobs they could try to get for me.  Sorry, but I am not going to do your job for you.  These people need to be shut down so they don't rip any more people off.  I will be searching for a lawyer to try to sue them.

Video Professor Credit Card Scam Denver Colorado
I recently did business with VIDEO PROFESSOR. They advertised a free training disk for the price of $6.95 shipping and handling. When I received the product there were 3 disks and a note stating I could keep them all for a charge of $79.95 or return one disk and there would be no charge. I immediately called them and after many calls where they left me waiting and then cutting me off I was able to receive a return code. The disk and a letter with all of my information was returned to them well before before there cut off date. Much to my surprise, on their cut off date, VIDEO PROFESSOR charged my account the $79.95. When I spoke to them they stated they hadn't received the disk back!!!' they told me it might have been lost in the mail being that we were in the holidays heavy mail season. Upon my protest I was told she cannot do anything about it, the problem must be passed onto the accounting department and they do not have phone access!!!. VIDEO PROFESSOR is falsely advertising their product as 'a free trial disk, for only a $6.95 shipping and handling fee' BE WARE.

AIU COLLEGE ONLINE Fraud Ripoff Internet
I thought I would go back to college after I became disabled a nd try to get a degree online. I was contacted online by a company called AIU and thought this would be perfect for me. I didnt have to get dressed and try to get to school and I could go online and go to college which was perfect due to my condition which limits me from doing much of anything. Well after I hooked up another phone line and spoke with Jamie Garcia at AIU he explained that everything would be paid for through special grants and college disabilities and things that were available to me and I wouldnt have to pay for this out of pocket as I was on disability. That was not the case at all. I was talking to him on my one phone line and he had me go online with the other and go to classroom. After I went into the classroom that is where the problems began. I was charged immediately for being an active member and a college student. Everytime I had a problem I would call Jamie and he told me to log into classroom and he would help me, well everytime I did I had problems and then he had to put me on hold or said he would call me back to just stay in the room and someone would show up. No one ever did. I had been charged for everytime I went into the classroom and now I have a bill in collection with Sally Mae student loans that I will never be able to pay back. This has ruined my credit and now I can't go to a real college due to I have to pay this loan back first. I have read other reports of this AIU of course after I had problems and was already stuck in this finacial rut. It does say Do Not Go Into Classroom by others or you will be charged. I hope by sending this someone else will not make the same mistake I made. I wish I would have read this before even contacting them. I have contacted them several times only to be put on hold or yelled at saying you went to class so therefore you are being charged, you were a student and we don't do free services and you are the one that filled out forms and went to class. They are working on commission here people, there only goal is to get you to enter the classroom, they have no cares wether or not you are having problems or are needing help. There main goal is only to get you into the classroom to charge you. Please do not go into the classroom and get stuck with a bill like I did. Very unfair to do this to anyone, let alone someone who is on disability and stuck with a low income. Beware people this is no joke, I wish to god it was. Stay clear of AIU.

Smart Certify Direct Ripoff - Misrepresentation Clearwater Florida
These folks allowed me to test drive a course before they called and pressured for my to sign a contract for payments. The sad part is that once I got into the training sections I wanted, it was junk. I have contacted them and all I get is that I'm past the 30 day money back warranty (even though according to the other reports I see here they don't stand behind it anyhow). Steer clear of this company and their hype. The course I was allowed to review was indeed well laid out and seemed accurate, but after evaluating much of their other content, it's garbage and not worth the bandwidth it takes to look at it. I have since bought books and studied for my courses and am much better prepaired at a much lower cost. I am working on how to get my money back from these folks, but it's taking some work and I may or may not be succesful. DON'T GET INVOLVED WITH THESE PEOPLE, is my word on this.

Video Professor TV advertisement consumer scam
I, too, fell for this scam from the TV advertisement. Unlike others, I was able to get ahold of the company over the phone and return their CDs. They promised to send a credit to my credit card, but we'll see about that. Two things about this business really ticked me off. 1) They don't warn you ahead of time that, once you get your initial trial shipment, they automatically start sending you shipments every month and 2) We ordered the set of CDs about the Internet and found, when we loaded the CDs, that in order to use them, you had to sign up with their internet service for $19.95 a month. They say the first month is free, but that means your instruction CDs are only good for a month plus, when the month is up, what guarantees that they'll stop billing you for the internet service also. These people are a rip-off and a big waste of time (it takes quite some time on hold to get to speak to someone on the phone).

Ameritrain ripoff ripoff fraud business Tysons Corner Virginia
I enrolled in computer training classes for a Microsoft Certification program to begin on 7-22-02. The total monies for the class was $3425.00. With 10% down in cash and the remaining balance to be handled by a student loan which Ameritrain set up for me. I was approved by a student loan and the necessary monies were paid to Ameritrain. I was scheduled to begin night classes at the Tyson's Corner, Va. Ameritrain on 7-22-02. A week prior to the class I received a phone call from Dave Diconcini, Ameritrain Reginal Mgr. who signed me up, stated that the night instructor had a conflict with his day job and had to reschedule the class for a new begin date of 8-27-02. I had no idea that Ameritrain was closing their doors. I had taken my NT4 certification classes there several years ago. I arrived the night of the class on 8-27-02 and found the doors to be closed and no one around. I then received a letter from the student loan that I got for the classes that Ameritrain had went out of business and for me to contact the Va. State Board of Education. Ameritrain has my money from the student loan and I have no classes to attend. Ameritrain did not inform me of any school closures or that they were going out of business. I want a refund of my money. Shawn Woodbridge, Virginia

He says he will call me back. He then calls back 4 days later. He proceeds to login in remotely to my computer to set up program. He keeps messing up and asking me if i knew how to run this program. THAT'S WHAT I AM PAYING THIS IDIOT TO DO FOR ME! We'll to make a long story short, he spent about a hour on the phone with me till this day. He continues his sessions when he feels like it.

ABCO TECHNOLOGY Look elsewhere for training Los Angeles, California
Looks elsewhere, save your money. Computers are terrible, CIW track classes are all taught from Element K books that cost about 20-40 each. ABCO charges a ridiculously higher number for these. Lesson plans are just read out of the book and you are left to do the exercises for the rest of the classes. The work takes about 2 minutes to do and you are left sitting in the class for 30 minutes twiddling thumbs. None of my classmates were satisfied with the classes. Windows software and Adobe CS3 software are pirated, I still do not have my own CD keys. What really irked me is that I did side work for them testing a client site, since they received my funds for the school, they completely stopped responding to me when I had begun asking about my compensation for the work. Multiple emails, left messages. No replies. OK that's fine, I should have paid more attention to the previous reviews. Well here is another one for you guys, look elsewhere for training. Plenty of more reputable training schools for lower price out there.
