WARNING – FRAUDULENT TRAINING COURSES
It has come to our notice that there are some fraudsters who are advertising legitimate looking training courses, taking fees for the courses, and then disappearing with the money and leaving delegates without a course or a refund.
We publicise training courses and seminars as a free service to service providers and PEO readers in good faith. Although we undertake basic checks to confirm accuracy and content, we are unable to give any guarantees as to the genuineness of the events or their scheduling. Occasionally, course dates are changed and we are not always notified so we strongly recommend that careful checks are undertaken before sending any money for courses.
Please note that we DO NOT TAKE BOOKINGS for the courses and events that we advertise. All arrangements and communications must be undertaken directly with the organisers whose details, websites or contact details are always included in the notes relating to the event.
If you are planning to sign up for a course or event, we recommend that you take some or all of the following basic precautions to check the event and its organisers:-
We were recently alerted to a very unfortunate case where two ladies booked and paid for a course advertised on our site and who turned up at the venue to find that nobody was there. They phoned the contact numbers for the course organisers to find them discontinued or dead. We made enquiries and discovered exactly the same thing, with our emails unanswered and the website “suspended”.
This has never happened to us before and thus we encourage you to check very carefully all the details relating to courses you may wish to attend to ensure that they are genuine.
