On January 27, 2021, I had signed up for a free trial online course with ShawAcademy.com in which they said there was 4 weeks to cancel before I would be charged to my credit card. Then I started looking through the website, and I was trying to understand if any further material such as certificates or diplomas were included in the free trial. I opened the 'Hard Copy Diploma' request and they wanted payment immediately. After reading they wanted payment I backed out of the payment immediately, but I still was charged. I was not aware of this unauthorized payment until 2 days later, when I checked my bank statement to find a charge from SHAWCOURS* SHAW ACADEM NEW YORK NY of $99.99 January 27, 2021.
There is no 2- step payment authorization on this website, I had not willingly authorized this payment whatsoever, and I still have not received this Hard Copy Diploma.
On January 29, 2021, I have emailed them for a refund. They have refused to give me a refund and instead have dragged on the conversation with bribery of additional content and course materials, and a reactivation of my account, in which I have stated no consent in doing so. I am still dealing with this company today, and have had no luck with their billing department at email@example.com.
This company is a SCAM, if you are looking for a legitimate diploma online and don't want to be frauded out of hundreds of unauthorized payments to your credit card, RUN THE OTHER WAY.
DO NOT CLICK THEIR SITE.
