SCAM SCAM SCAM - I WISH THERE WAS A 0 STAR OPTION
Like so many of the other reviewers on here, I have also been scammed by Shaw Academy.
They entice you with a free trial and then make it virtually impossible to cancel, and will harass you with emails, texts, Whatsapp's, and anything else they can contact you on.
Furthermore, they use a deceitful and underhanded system to charge you even more. They have a one-click payment system, which means that curiously clicking on a "toolkit", for example, will IMMEDIATELY, charge you £39.95 which they will refuse to refund. One click and your money is gone.
Upon realising I had been scammed, I contacted my bank and Shaw Academy directly. Shaw Academy was awful at replying to emails and when they did, they mainly just tried to make me purchase more! I asked numerous times for a refund and to cancel my account - these requests were repeatedly ignored.
FINALLY, I received my refund and written confirmation that my account had been cancelled, with no further charges:
"As per your request, we have now cancelled your membership.
Please be assured that you will not be charged for your membership until you reactivate."
It turned out this was a LIE! Whilst looking through my bank statements the next month, I saw that they had charged me £39.95 again! Here starts the battle again!
Looking on here and other review sites, I can see that so many people have fallen for the same scam as me. I don't understand how they haven't been shut down yet.
