    free online course

    I half signed up for a 'free course' yesterday with Shaw Academy which then proceeded to ask for my credit card details to access so I stopped my request. But since then in less than 24 hours I have received FOURTEEN spam calls on my number. Each call is from a different landline so they look kosher so I cannot block them. They have clearly sold on my data without my consent which is illegal. These calls are already making my day to day life impossible. I will be reporting them to every data governing body I can find and take legal action if they do not respond. If anyone else knows how to stop this is would be grateful for suggestions.

    Course

    I wanted to register for the free online course, but when i got messige in the screen that i need to put my bank card details urgent in the time limit with ticking clock,I cancelled registration, as such tricks did not seem serious for me.Now I feel that I am persecuted. Bunch of emails, messiges in my mobile that I urgently need to do something, calling in viber, calling from different numbers with different countrys codes to my mobile non stop several times a day from this place.I asked then to leave me alone, but I am still getting calls.I am litteraly blocking the numbers.

    SCAM - Free 4 weeks trial

    BIG SCAM!!! FRAUD!!! They are unethical. They changed my Free 4 weeks trial to Premium membership and charged me 199.95 GBP without my consent. They also charged my for a toolkit 49.99 GBP which I didn't ordered, then they made 15 transactios for 0.37 GBP. I tried to speak to them - no luck, I sent several emails with a complaint - no response from them at all. AVOID THEM!

    DO NOT REGISTER TO SHAW ACADEMY,
    NOTHING IS FOR FREE!!! SCAM COMPANY, they survive because of all the money they stole to people!
    I registered to shaw academy 4 weeks trial floristry course on the 11th of January, on Monday 18th I received a phone call from a team member, asking how was my course going. I gave my feedback, which was pretty negative about it, as I did not like the way the course was structured.
    He was in a very noisy environment, hard to understand as he had voices on top of his own one, I could then understand he said he couldn't give me some flowers or a box of chocolates, but he could offer me a free access to my class, pharaphs he also said unlimited. I mentioned several times over the phone that the line was terrible and I couldn't understand, if he could please write me an email about what he wanted to say.
    Instead, I received a confirmation email, which also went on junks, thanking me for doing a new membership and investing in my future. I NEVER AGREED TO THIS, NEVER SAID YES, THAT'S FINE! I GOT CHARGED 99.95 EURO WITHOUT MY AUTHORISATION . Never heart him talking about prices or terms and conditions! I sent many emails asking for a refund, until when, a manger called me, offering me access for two or three more people and to cancel my details from their website, otherwise I could have been charged again! I told him I only wanted a refund as I wasn't any longer interested to their courses.He wasn't able to give me an explanation for not being entitle to get a refund.
    It will not end like that!
    This people must shut their business, they have stolen money from thousands of people, web is plenty of negative reviews about them.
    choose an other learning portal! they also deserve a star for their courses.

    Sound Engineering

    What an absolute shower of robbers. Eventually they refund the money that they illegally withdrew from bank account, and after I had arranged for my bank to block all further unauthorised withdrawals from Shaw Academy, they use a different name to withdraw a further £49.99.

    I am thoroughly disgusted by this company.

    I don't know how they sleep at night. Hopefully there is a special place in hell for these people.

    They charged my account after I was inactive for over 6 months. It has been a terrible experience.

    Full of lies!!! This is a whole scam! When i called and say I wanna cancel, they tell you they will let you finish it since they saw that I didnt use any of the materials yet for the one month that I purchase and will cancel after the month. Little did I know that they didnt even cancel the subscription and I would not have notice until I check my credit card bill that they are still charging my monthly subscription! Total scam and never again

    Total scam. They dont give my money back

    By: Lina21-01-2021
    Rezwana21-01-2021

    I am so disappointed. I have never ever in my life had a negative experience with a company, I didn't think I'd ever have to write a negative review but they have literally taken a total of £80 after I requested to cancel from their service. It's not about the money for me but the principle hence why I am furious and distressed. Its taking me a whole day to get through to the team, they have wasted my time and energy. They are not user friendly, they make it difficult for you to cancel your membership, I am a tech savvy person and I was confused on how to do this. The only way to cancel is calling through the number they provide right at the end after endless amount of steps on their website. The team will then try and persuade you to 'pause' your membership which they confirm no outgoing payments will go out of your account and into theirs because they have paused the service. I then noticed two months they are taking my money. I then called the number I was previously provided and then the phone system didn't recognise my student ID. I managed to get through to them on my sisters phone but they are refusing to give my money back and saying they are going to run an internal investigation. I had to call up Lloyd bank to block them so they dont take anymore of my money. I also got into contact with Paypal to resolve this because I don't trust this company. This business should not be around and everyone should be compensated for the distress this has caused. They have profited during the worst times, it being covid and people struggling to provide for themselves, their kids etc. This is not right. Everyone on their LinkedIn page literally comments their negative experience, there are articles on them but nothing has been done about it. If anyones a lawyer, please get in touch. Btw I still don't have my money back because Lloyds can't do anything about it, Paypal don't have the time to resolve these type of disputes even though they have scammed many people.

    non

    This place is a big scam. Most if not all of the positive reviews are fake.
    I started an application, found out it was a scam, and immediately stopped. I hadn't put in my card details. I ended my login account with them and retried my email afterward, I could not gain access, so I assumed the account was deleted. I hadn't applied for any courses.
    I receive calls every week telling me if I don't sign up they will continue E-mailing me and ringing me. I told them I did not apply, which I haven't. I blocked most of the numbers, but they seem to use additional numbers, suggesting they either have a lot of people working for them or they have burner sim cards.
    They did say after a phone call that they would email me. around five minutes after I put the phone down a fake DPD email came through with hidden links in the email, I found them by highlighting all the text.
    Unfortunately, for these scammers, the individual from this organization, who emailed me, left a linked email with the DPD email which contained his lovely home address down to the door number in Cardiff and his full name along with his phone number. Clearly, they don't know how to cover their tracks very well.
    I have given all these details to my friends in the relevant authorities.

    Shaw Academy is SCAM

    I started the 4 weeks free trial. However, after few days, I saw they charged me $279.95 CAD without my approval. I had not registered for any courses or any certificates. and I did not authorised them for any charges. I sent so many emails and ask for refund. so far not refund. Shaw Academy is SCAM. DO NOT REGISTER FOR FREE TRIAL. Shaw Academy STEAL YOUR MONEY.

    4 Week trial account

    I am one among the thousands of SHAW ACADEMY(SCAM ACADEMY) victim. I joined for 4 week trial course, a week later an agent called and told me about a promotion, and agreed to send email about the details. Well next email i got is from my bank that i was charged 279.95cad. Tried to contact them multiple times via emails, all i was getting was -"We will get back to you in 48hrs". After putting a review here, they did reply to emailing thier billing department. Here is the update.

    Hi Nithin,

    Will call you tomorrow morning 10EST as per your last email.

    Have a nice day.

    Regards,
    Veon
    We would like to request that you do not raise multiple reviews, tickets or email multiple email address. As we have to read every single one of them, it will inadvertently slow us down and prevents us from handling the queries in a prompt and accurate manner. This has also a large impact on other customers looking to get support as we cannot get to them. We hope that you understand our intention is to be as prompt and professional as possible and it is for those reasons that we share this information and ask you to inform others of this.


    Veon was more than happy to provide lifetime membership than to return my money. Who are these guys to force things on us??? I didnt ask for premium membership!!! You forced it on me and charged me without my consent.If someone is reading my review. I am sorry that maybe you are reading this after you got scammed too. SCAM ACAMEDY have been doing their shameless scams for a long time now. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Only way to fight them is legally. Thats by closing them down and thats when each of them who are part of this is arrested.

    Scam

    They are scamming people. They make you subscribe to the free trial and immediately charge money for courses you didn't care about. They refuse to refund the money that they stole. Legal actions will eventually be taken against them for fraudulent activity.

    4 Week trial account

    Shaw Academy is the perfect example of how shameless and scandalous someone can be. Sign up for free trail of 4 week course... thats all i wanted. Unfortunately i gave them my credit card detail for sogning in. Like a week later, they took 300cad from me without my consent- jjst like that!!!!!. This is a hard time. People are jobless and struggling due to pandemic. People working behind SHAW ACADEMY, I had never seen any heartless cruel people like you guys. Agent was calling me to give info rwgarding a promotion. My question is. IF YOUR SCAMMER AGENT CALLS ME, DOES THAT MEAN SHE CAN CHARGE ME!! WITHOUT MY CONSENT???. I did put a review in trustpilot... SHAW ACADEMY replied though to email them . But no response after that. Iam still getting email for missing my class though. I hope that everyone behind this company will pay for what they are doing to thousands of people.

    Shaw Academy is a scam & cheat academy

    Shaw Academy is a scam, They are cheating, This scam group steals my £99 from my bank account. I raised a complaint by email and many other ways but they are not responding at all. they don't have a UK customer care number as well. So you can't talk to them. All shameless people work there.

    I have emailed them 7 days ago no response, Someone from shaw academy replied to my previous review on the Trustpilot forum and said someone will contact me within 24 hours. Unfortunately 7days gone but they are not responding to me at all.

    4 Week free course.

    I signed up for the for week free course. I tried 3 times to access the course. The first 2 times it just kept sending me around the site. The third time I got the message "Congratulations on earning your Deploma ". I hadn't even started yet. The next day I received an email saying I'd been charged the monthly fee of $69.99. It had only bee 2 days! I got in touch with Shaw Academy. I was told they would cancel my subscription but I had to email them for refund, which I did. The reply, no refund, but I can access the school for free for 6 months. I email back, no I want a refund. They sent another email, no refund, but I could access the school for free for 1 year. Got in touch with PayPal. PayPal agreed with the school. Thinking about Shaw Academy, don't.
