I spent $900 on this program and can’t even utilize it. No, you can’t get your money back. The final exam is s**t, the first half will not tell you which questions you get wrong so you go in circles to figure it out. Once Janet Shaughnessy has pocketed your money, and you start having problems and are told to just go to the Facebook group for Transcribe Anywhere and get your questions answered. Or email her assistant, Marsha, who will give you BS responses. 

In the Facebook group you will soon discover that most of the other people can't figure how to turn on a printer, let alone type. And be warned...Janet does like to be confronted with calling her out on her mistakes. 

Do the math: If you are paying $900, and 50 other people are paying the same to Janet in one month, how much is Janet's monthly income? Answer: $45,000/month. She promotes herself as makes a six-figure income and now you can see why. You will be paying for Janet to maintain her lifestyle while you will not make anything. 

Her assistant Marsha, will give you bullsh*t responses. The exams are electorinially rigged to fail you automatically. The content of the legal trascription course is BASIC, and nowhere near being on a professional level or accurate in it's info. This course is a joke and a scam. 

NOTE: All articles written as reviews for Transcibe Anywhere are written by people that are affiliate marketers that make money as soon as you click their article. The other eople who claim to be graduates are no longer working as transcriptionsts because they soon realized they were not making any money. They agreed to promote Janet and make money that way.  

I've reported Transcibe Anywhere to the BBB and filed a complaint to try to get my money back...not holding my breath since Janet has already spent my money on herself.

Lies and False Facts

AUTHOR: Janet - (United States)

POSTED: Friday, December 17, 2021

 This student is upset because she didn't pass the final exam, but still demanded certification. Transcribe Anywhere offers comprehensive and challenging courses that provide our students with all of the training, tools, and resources needed to succeed in the field of transcription. No one is entitled to certification just because they paid for a course. We're not a certification mill and will not lower our standards for anyone.

That would not serve our hard-working students who are willing to put in the time and effort needed to succeed. Our graduates are highly sought after because companies and clients know the quality of the work they can expect. As for the personal attacks against me and my staff, I'll only say this: This report was made by a disgruntled student who didn't do the work required to pass and feels entitled to blame her failure on us rather than take responsibility for her own actions or inactions.

Transcribe Anywhere SCAM

AUTHOR: JL - (United States)

POSTED: Friday, August 27, 2021

Transcribe Anywhere transcription training promotes by using clickbait articles to mislead people to the main “course”. Janet Shaughnessy claims (and falls back on) being AAERT approved, but further investigation with them revealed that they pretty much allow anyone that pays a fee to be on their website listed as an “approved” program.

Transcribe Anywhere is not a Better Business Bureau company so most complaints are unlisted publicly. But there are a lot of complaints and Transcribe Anywhere has been reported to the FTC and IRS.

Beware of Transcibe Anywhere. You do not need certification by Transcibe Anywhere to be a general or legal transciptionist. Local colleges offer real training by vetted instructors or you can work direct for transciption companies that rpovide their style guides and criteria to work with them.  

Janet Shaughnessy should be ashamed of herself. If you question her authority, you will be met with accusatory and narcissistic verbal attacks. Scamming people who are looking for legit work is the worst.
