thefreelanceracademy.com The Freelancer Academy Tried to sell me a fake web design certification for $495 Internet
*Consumer Comment: I too was scammed by The Freelancer Academy
The certification is made up of a series of videos that they pulled from youtube. They say the training is "one-on-one" but actually when you sign in, you have to follow along with dated directions that have broken links, and you only have access to the teacher via a GROUP im chat. He won't answer questions in the chat but makes you download a teamviewer and provide your credentials. The course promises things it doesn't deliver and then the "exam" at the end is another random internet "quiz" that has questions on it that have NOTHING to do with the material that was "taught" in the course. BOGUS. And nowhere near worth the money!
I went there from a job listing on Craigslist, but I'm sure there are many other ways they get people to sign up.
This job listing says it's hiring web designers and then asks people applying to make a payment toward an online training for a certification. I was told that I needed to do the training for one week. I did it, the training was very thrown together and unprofessional. And now that the training is finished I'm getting no correspondence from the employer.
