    Cheaters!! Shaw Academy if it is really "academy" cheaters!!
    Free week at spring time convert to stolen 69.99$ in november!!!! Without any noticing!!!
    No one of them don't want to understand, don't want to hear, all they are talking about is keep advertising their courses!!

    I didn't use anything, but had their app, cause i though that i can back to that lessons a year later...

    In november they took 69.99$, then called me (after my review and letters) and promise me that they will remove all my card info and that they will not refund my money!!! After that tall i got the long letter with advertising of what i can get for their fault!!

    But in december shaw academy tried to stole my money two times more!!!! TWO TIMES MORE AFTER PROMISING TO REMOVE MY CARD INFORMATION!!! HOW COME?!?!?

    These people are so manipulative and despicable. The worst mistake I have ever made. Also, WHY WOULD YOU ASK FOR BANK DETAILS IF THE COURSE IS FREE !!!!

    Shaw Academy is a scam & cheat academy

    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.

    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.


    Veon (Shaw Academy)

    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.

    4 Week Free Trail

    Worst online teaching company ever - Don't trust them or ever deal with them.

    5 weeks ago i'd signed for a 4 week trial on a premium membership from Shaw Academy.

    I selected the DB development course, however my scheduled has been very tight and 2 weeks later tried cancelling the membership to avoid any charges and as per their website i had to call their support line.

    When calling the support rep, offered me to renew my trial for another 4 weeks so i could have time to catchup, unfortunately in the second attempt just when accessing y profile a quick popup appeared and disappeared and i was charged...i had not completed the 4 weeks by at least 4 days.

    When getting in touch with them again to get this corrected and get the refund they refused to give any refund as per them it is not possible to do so, i imagine their own payment systems are not ready for such a modern procedure.

    After multiple delayed emails, they take 3 or 4 days to answer they offered me 12 months free membership but all i want is my money back, they have told me someone would call me in 48 hours, it's been 2 weeks nobody calls, nobody answers my emails anymore, clearly this company is a scam that takes the money from people in the more unbelievable way.

    PLEASE don't use their services, DON't ever attempt to learn with them, there are lots of better companies in the market that will save you time and hickups.

    Free Month Trial

    I signed up for a free month trial in late November. After a couple of classes that were pretty good, my next class was nonexistent. When I realized the course wasn't even complete, I lost interest.

    A few days before the end of my trial, I decided to cancel. When I went to the page to do so, they website offered me ONE additional FREE month of membership. Since I was actually interested in the course, I accepted this so I could do a more thorough assessment of the course.

    FOUR days later, they charged me for a month membership at 49.99 EUR.

    I have been fighting with them for three weeks, trying to get a refund for what they said would be a free month, and so far, every customer service person finds some way to avoid the topic or avoid taking responsibility for their horrible system.

    I DO NOT recommend having anything to do with their service.

    Online class

    It was insanely hard to cancel services, I emailed them twice and they said I should call. When I called I needed to argue with the person to cancel my subscription! Through email and on phone they tried to persuade me to stay and give me benefits, bla, bla...horrible experience!! Never again!

    I signed TODAY for free Trial (4 Weeks for FREE). I got Popup (like One-Click Payment for Module Toolkit) for 39,99 Euro. I pressed buttom X to avoid this Popup, But Payment (PayPal) went through (how they SO tricky code it I don't really know). After reading on the web all this stuff what other users have the same troble and nobody got in such cases money back, I posted my complains everywere. I am going to give similar Feedback an all my phones in all my accounts, at PlayStores, and App Stores. They are coding this Popups so tricky and I find it not good how you deal with us and we have to complain about Shaw Academy. They try to earn your money trough such tricks like One-Click Payments and Popups, instead to provide good service for customers. In a long term their competitors will win upon them. In my Point of view the Page of Shaw Academy is realy bad (at firdt in the mobile phone). Its so difficult to find something on this mobile page. I am not installing the App because people are writting its so hard to get rid of Payments if you have this App (difficult to cancel the contract if you instaled this App). And this petition there (against Shaw Academy) and collecting of signatures against it, is quite good idea and I will surely take a part in it. I know may be I write my feedback to early, but I found no information that they pay money back in such cases. I will not get my money back, but I want give to everybody this information.

    IT'S A SCAM, AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!

    They charged me for the free trial and the toolkit, immediately, even though I had zero intention to pay them anything before seeing what it was. Now they helped themselves to ~90 euros from my bank account and PayPal says that it was not unauthorized. I already contacted CCPC and my bank, hoping for the best.

    i didn't watch any of the content, and got charged anyway. Not a valid point, but they make it so hard to cancel. 9a-5p est time frame is frankly the most annoying thing you could ever do to someone coming home to find out their account is overdrawn.

    Free trial??

    Please be aware with this company and never ever sign up for the free trial as it is a pure scam to take your card details only to be able to charge your card with your "authorization" despite what content you receive from them or that are you happy with that content or not. They WILL charge you even if you cancel the service within the free trial period.
