In Response To: Re: They're calling themselves Career Training Institue now (TV)
I recently purchased this coure, after losing my job as a REAL work at home customer service rep for Directv. This job is the job where you do actually sit at home and work on the computer, no commission, paid every 2 weeks, and I actually worked for this company for 4 months. If you want this site I will gladly give it to you! This site has been in the actual Wichita Falls Times Record News! I read the BBB review who gave Computer Carrer Insitute a AA rating which is super good. There were no bad or good reviews. Now I thought about this rating for days and thought if someone actually spent money on this product why wouldn't they write a bad review? I dont know about paying off BBB for a good rating as someone said earlier. I would believe if that was true, the for most of the companies I looked up and found F ratings, they would have paid for AA ratings also. I am now becoming worried. I found this site by accident, and have only made it to course 10. I had no idea someone had to buy the product that you were promoting in order to make money. In lesson 10 it starts talking about how to make money. I plan to listen to a couple of more lessons to see if someone has to buy the product in order to make money. I do tend to lead toward this being true since I have seen several people on this site say the same thing.I do however, feel after purchasing this product and spending money I really didn't have, I got to find out for myself.If this product turns out to be fake I will dispute charges and let everyone know how that goes. On the cerificate being "not real" I didn't really take this course for that, I took it because the guarantee of the job. After reading these post, I gather they do get you a job, and you DONT make any money. I will keep everyone posted on how it goes.

| PLEASE READ THIS LEGAL NOTICE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU FILE A LAWSUIT OR EVEN WASTE TIME THINKING ABOUT IT. It has been done before, but never successfully. In fact, the last dodobird who tried it ended up being ordered to pay more than $77,000 in attorney fees ($65,000+ to my attorneys and $12,000+ to my co-defendant's legal advisor).
If your attorney is worth his salt, he's going to tell you that the expense of filing a lawsuit you can't win is a whole lot worse than any "damages" resulting from messages posted on this insignificant little chunk of cyberspace.
NEWS FLASH: I didn't just climb down off that ol' turnip truck yesterday. I'm well aware that expressing a negative opinion, relating one's personal experience, and restating provable facts are all legal in this country and do not constitute libel, slander, or defamation -- so you don't want to play games with me, and you sure don't want to start something you aren't prepared to finish. I don't take threats lightly, and I don't accept bribes (or did you call it a "mutually-beneficial arrangement"?). I'll turn you in faster than you can yell, "ARREST ME, I'M SCUM!!"
Do yourself a favor and turn your legal team loose in greener pastures.

In closing, I would like to remind you once again that it is still legal, in this great country of ours, to express a PERSONAL OPINION, as long as it is presented as opinion and not as fact.
And finally, all you scammers out there will do well to remember that TRUTH IS AN ABSOLUTE DEFENSE against charges of libel, defamation, and slander... so if you're operating just a hop, skip, and jump ahead of the law, you might want to think twice before doing anything stupid... (AND SHAME ON YOU!!).
