    How many threads on this do we need? :blink

    I'm just astonished at how many people find this place they day after they sign a financially ruinous contract.
    And to date, nobody has actually been able to say what this company is actually doing wrong.

    OK, they place ads which sound like a job offer with full training provided.
    When you contact them, they tell you that you will need to pass some certs before they will employ you.
    The training is provided online.
    You are expected to pay a fee for the training.

    Am I missing something?
    While it's not a set-up that I would go for, I don't see how it's a 'scam'.
    Unless of course they don't tell you any of this until after you sign the contract - in which case the blame sits firmly on your shoulders. If you are asked to sign a document which is half hidden under a saleman's newspaper then, quite frankly, things aren't going to go your way at all.

    OK, thanks for clarifying that.

    So, at what point do you sign a contract? Is it before or after the 'interview' and job offer?

    After they told you about the required training and the costs?

    It's a typical sales tactic. Telling people that they have been 'accepted' or 'passed' a test is a standard way of getting you all excited so that you don't think too hard about the downsides. Gets used all the time.

    They can charge pretty much whatever they want.
    Training providers charge anything between £500 and £5,000 for courses and often aren't that bothered if the student actually does any of the training or not. You haven't got much to go on there.

    The fact that they didn't tell you about the training and costs is naughty.
    It's probably in the contract you signed somewhere.

    A lot of this is turning up on CF at the moment and at a risk of sounding unsympathetic Caveat Emptor is the best advise I'm afraid.
