greenerekgreenerek Member Posts: 99 ■■□□□□□□□□
I just want to warn anyone, about those people and their SCAM in the uk and maybe in some other countries. received an phone call, and the screener asked me if still looking for work, do I have an experience in IT(in that time I was thinking, normal phone call)Than he said , That in my area new company is going to have their main-branch and looking for someone who is graduate or have IT certs (still no alert).Than said that he is going to offer me some courses for free that will prepare me better to my new job that and help me get better knowledge of IT and if I will be doing good they send me to do some Microsoft courses too!

I asked is it for free? He said mainly yes because future employer will pay ( I think too good to be true). Than he asked if I am interested and I said yes, and he arranged an on-line interview for Tomorrow( I thought how lucky I am, found such a good opportunity!)

later received an email from them

    I just had an interview today with them. Had a nice chat with lad for about 30 min (disconnected couple times,-sth wrong with my mobile ;D), and this chap was calling me again and again :), talked about this program how great it is, and said about future job and so on


    I said thank you but not interesting , and he was really, really astonished.I said that |I found a better job, and he asked me for how much, I said 17000 £ as Junior position, than he said that after their course as MCTP I will get 25000-30000 with no industrial experience!!(he explained that I will get experience because of virtual labs and all this staff. He said also, that the offer is limited and only for today.


    despite of my smiley faces I am upset , how such a company scam telling bullocks about how easy and fast is get a good job with no experience no education just certs( they do not mention that is not easy to pass the exam,well when you don't use a ****!) for a really good many, 25-30 000 £ guarantee!!Their program is the best!

    Because of those people the IT market is really spoiled and is really difficult for someone who is really keen on IT and work hard to pass the exam and find a job....

    Anyway I hope that this thread will help some of you, when you will be looking for a job and those people call you and offer a great job and deal...

    Those types exist here. Even on popular sites like Monster and Careerbuilder (yet another reason I do not like using them.) They promise $30k-$40k internships, promise to have you MSCE etc certified (via braindumps in reality) or promise a job for you.

    When in doubt, take 2 seconds and Google.

    icon_cry.gif Too late Mr Greenerek, reading these forums are good as they warn you but as its too late for me I feel so sick and stupidicon_sad.gif,I am just so desperate to gain employment or start some sort of course that I fell hook, line and sinker for this.

    I got my online interview Tuesday afternoon and when I realised, thanks to my bro who is employed in the IT and has and studied hard for an MCSE qualification, I canceled my card altogether so they at least they couldn't get any more money out that way, I also sent a letter special delivery quoting the 'Customer Protection Selling Regulation 2000' as in their terms and conditions, phew that done i started to calm down a tiny bit.

    Now my calmness has gone as, yes you guessed it, I have just checked to put my mind at rest and Nooooooooooo, £79 has shown up in my account from DirectJunctionicon_sad.gif, it appears they were quick off the mark and have taken the money out already, now I am going mad i could just kick myself, I thought of phoning my bank to say someone must have got hold of my card when it was lost it and used it to pay this company as it clearly wasn't me, but as my bro pointed out this is fraud,oops! and that could get me in serious trouble, so we thought my best bet would be to see by the royalmail website if they received my letter via their track and trace facilities, which it looks as if it has as someone signed for it and the website even gives you the signature well scribble when it was received, then to wait a couple of days and phone them up monday to say they obviously received my letter and ask them where my refund is getting them to send me a cheque as no way am I going to give my new details out again, but if they are adamant they won't refund it, my only hope I can see is to just speak to my bank and explain and see if anything can be done, unfortunately if not its just a harsh lesson learned as i can't see what else I can doicon_cry.gif, or if you or anyone has any suggestions can they please let me know, any suggestions would be apprepriated?
  • greenerekgreenerek Member Posts: 99 ■■□□□□□□□□
    Let's hope that they will refund,however you agreed to join the course so, won't be easy....they are smart icon_sad.gif, better to lose those 79 than 400 after couple months.....good luck!, just in case a suggest apply for a new card and block the old...you never know, who can use your detail and when....

    Thanks for your reply Greenerek I do to but I don't hold out much hope of getting my £79 back:sad but as you said rather that then 400 and at least one of the first thing I did was block my old card as you suggested, so they couldn't get anything else out.

    Did you sign anything? I doubt you did, therefore there is no contract. Don't let them trick you into paying. It's the same deal with debt collectors when they call up and say "just pay £1 a month" if you agree to things like that, then you kind of enter into a contract with them. Be careful, don't let them trick you, this company are clearly scammers. My best advice would be to go and check out the website "Get out of debt free" - IT's primarily dealing with debt collectors but same underlying principle by the sounds of it. Namely, that you do not have a contract with them and they are trying to get money out of you.

    hello (sammyg) i just have been scammed today they have already taken my card details without a signed agreement an so on,offering training with a cost of £79 a month for 1 ******* year! the people i have spoken to seemed very unprofessional,beside while talking on the phone heard suspicious whispering while getting feedback from so called professional manager or admin for final approval conformation which obviously tells me that there was more than just one person listening to private conversation and TAKING YOUR BANK CARD details,also and experience is not essential they provide it FREE APPARENTLY ( £79 monthly ) and moving on to the interesting part myself had done a bit of research or tracking if u like about all this SHITY BOLLOCKS and found using website tracking spy and found out that there was no historical daily traffic trend which means their data usage that they daily collect from customers which obviously rings you a bell!! and it seems like the admin VECL is Muhammad Basit which couldnt even find anymore information about this person other than that. my dear friends i would collect as much posts and information or even record their conversations track their physical location and take this matter a bit further.thanksicon_twisted.gifPLEASE SHARE THIS POST ANYWHERE YOU LIKE !!!
