Lan / Wan Professional / Training scam
This company appears to be the same scam as tech pros but now using a new name - see the bbb and other complaints on this site for the tech pros details and you'll see the similarities and the same name.
Don't give them your hard earned money! No one gives away free training that is worth anything!
