Computer Training Center / Scam center
This is one of the most fraudulent companies I've ever dealt with! Their site is built on lies and deception. DO NOT buy their $99.00 online manual! You will regret it! They have dozens of complaints posted with the Arizona BBB (the company is based in Scottsdale, AZ).
As part of the sign-up, they say you will get $300.00 TODAY (their caps) for taking a survey. But after you pay your money and go to the survey site, they tell you they will pay in 60 to 90 days, and only if they accept your essay! I never got paid anything!
Another reason I signed up is that they had a high "approval" rating from a claimed independent agency called the "Consumer Advocacy Group." The Computer Training people had a link on their site to that site. That advocacy site listed the Computer Training Center as their best rated company for "Approved Work at Home Opportunities." There were several others listed below them.
After I realized I was ripped off, I researched the WHOIS database and discovered that The Consumer Advocacy Group is the same company as The Computer Training center, even though they claim it's an independent group. I couldn't believe how far these people went to deceive customers! It's clearly fraud!
The Computer Training site also says it's easy to make money: Just type a few sentences into some online forms and you get paid! This is also deceptive, because the process is more complicated.
Many of their sites seemed like scams to me, so I was hesitant to keep going. But to get paid, people have to buy a program, e-book, or whatever the site is selling before you make any money. They leave out all this detail! You can work hard, spend money, and make $0.00!
Then you're supposed to post ads on Yahoo and Google, but the Yahoo Classifieds were discontinued as of October of 2007, and you have to pay to do the ads on Google.
I immediately sent e-mails to their customer service people outlining these concerns and asked for a refund. They have refused. They could care less! They are a rip-off company!
