I don't know if you know already but there is a scam company

Customer Question

Hi there,I don't know if you know already but there is a scam company out there called "The Global Work & Travel Co." They took a Deposit from me of $695 that was NON-REFUNDABLE and hassled me into closing the deal with them. I feel completely tricked and violated. I set up a claim with my Bank, but they said they cannot do anything unless the Merchant made a mistake. Is there ANYTHING I can do to get my money back? Please help!

They use this as a loop-hole: the fine print in the contract may mean that a guaranteed "job opportunity" just means an "interview" and not an actual job.

In any case, you may be able to sue them in small claims court for fraudulent inducement and/or report them to the CA AG's office here.
