    Shaw academy is definitely a scam, they talk about free course but then debit your account without disclosing it

    I listened to the first class or two and decided to cancel immediately, it was not a good fit. I canceled several times online but it wouldn't process the cancellation fully until I called. I tried calling five different times and each time it said they were closed even though it was during the middle of the day. Finally, I discovered that they were on UK time, which it doesn't say in the voicemail. All my other calls were still placed between 9 to 5 but I finally got through by calling at 8 in the morning. A human didn't even answer, it was an automated voicemail! And the voicemail said you have now canceled your membership. I don't understand why on earth they couldn't just send me to the cancellation voicemail all the other times I tried calling but they didn't.

    The worst part was that once I finally was able to cancel it, they still charged me two days later.
    When I tried to contact them about it, they don't even have an online helpdesk.

    This was a horrible experience. It feels like a scam. Shaw manipulated me and made it almost impossible to cancel. Then they charged me anyway.

    Im worrying be ause I just joined a free course 9 hours ago, but I immediately cancelled 3 hours ago. They already deducted 5 dollars in my account without my permission. Hopefully they won't deduct more or else I need to call my bank immediately.

    In August 2020, I was looking for an Interior design course and I came across Shaw Academy. Their offer was 1 Month of free access to the content, and I've decided to try it and see if the content matches my needs. The moment I registered, I was charged 50 euro!!! I contacted them immediately, but the response was that they CANNOT return my money, and instead they were giving me 6 months of access to the course. In addition, every module has separate materials which you have to pay extra. The 6-month period is finished, but I did not see all the videos since they have not been all uploaded.
    Now, a little note on the actual content of the course. I did not want to waste more money on this platform so I did not buy any course materials. The videos are giving general information. They made 4 videos on basic drawing with Autocad and Sketchup, which has nothing to do with an Interior Design Course.

    Shaw Academy is a scam. They will tell you it's a free course but once you sign-up, they will call you and offer 1 year subscription for they say is a discounted price. Then after a year, when you thought your subscription is over, they will bill you automatically for another 1 year subscription, and even if you ask them to cancel and refund the amount, they will tell you that they don't do refunds because your subscription has already been renewed. They are the only company that doesn't have the authority to cancel their clients' subscription, wow, one-of-a-kind! They say they are not able to do refunds because they are not able to do it in their own computer system! Or is it because they just simply don't want to do it? Their courses are recorded very badly and boring that no one would be interested in attending. BIG SCAMMER!

    There is no selection for 0 star so checked on 1 for everything but they still got 2? And I checked on "NO" if i would buy again, but it showed Yes in the review, SO ODD!

    Trial Course and Bank issues (OTP) hELP

    HELP!!!!

    I was registering my account for their "FREE TRIAL", I entered my account details and it redirected me to a tab where I should put my OTP sent to my phone number, but I didn't enter the OTP and leave the page because I was scared for moment.
    .
    Question is: Will they still deduct fees even I didn't get to enter my otp upon registering? Does it still count? Or is my registration confirmed? I'm scared that they might still deduct fees.
    .
    Hoping for a help and response. Big thanks!

    Advertised Free Online Class

    The information provided by this service was all legible and easy to understand and at first I had a lovely experience with it, but when I tried to quit due to time constraints I ran into a couple issues. I was told that it would be a completely free service and I wouldn't be charged, then I recieved a certification charge for $279, and when I confronted customer service about it they claimed that I consented to this charge, which I didn't. Their advertisement claiming that the service was free was false, and they did agree to delete my personal information, but even as I said that I didn't want to use the platform anymore they refused to listen and insisted that I continue to recieve free services for the next five years, which I didn't want. It's a scam. Don't waste your money

    This is a scam. They let you pay after you cancel the trial.

    Membership

    Don’t ever give your credit card to this scam company, it wasted so much of my time just to deal with it. They kept withdrawing money from your credit time to time, I had ready made 2 phone calls to cancel (the only way you could cancel the membership was to call them) but after a few months, you would see your money got stolen again from this company, I even wrote email to request for a refund but they will never do.

    Marketing

    Negative There have got a lot of hidden charges and obviously scammers please don’t trust them

    I have sent so many emails asking cancle and refund,
    as soon as I realized they charged me, but Shaw Academy has not answered yet. Shaw Academy is just waiting for victims to give up. I found regulations all customers have 14 days to ask cancel and refund of digital service. Although I have a right, it doesn't matter for them. They are just ignoring and giving no answer.

    MUST READ!!!
    DON NOT USE!!!!
    THEY CANT NOT BE TRUSTED!!!!
    DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE!!!
    HERES WHY:
    So I had my membership extended till the 18th Oct and afterwards it would then get cancelled and by that point I had finished all of the lessons as well as complete all of the exams and when I questioned where was my hard copy I was told I didn’t finished the course and therefore would not get a hard copy of the diploma unless I paid more money!!!! (Money grabbers) ???? By this point I have had another £100 taken out of my bank account even though I was previously been told by a member of their colleagues that it would get cancelled. I had put in so much of my time and effort into this course only to find out that I won’t receive my hard copy of the diploma which is rightfully mine due to some FAULT IN THE STYTEM!!! And not only did they rob money off a young 19 year old girl (£300+) they robbed her from her dreams and future and for that they should feel ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!!!! So what I suggest to them was I either get sent my hard copy of my diploma immediately (which is rightfully mine) or they return my full amount of money they robbed from me!!! However, their customer advice team have been completely useless toward the situation when all I want is for the issue to be solved ASAP as you can imagine I am very unhappy ????all I would like this mess to be sorted. And as I have made them aware I will take this issue even further if I have too!!!
