American Registration Center - This is a SCAM

THIS IS A BIG SCAM!!!!!!!!!

I am a victim too. I signed up on February and I am still fighting to get my money back. I called my credit card company and I am trying to get my money through them. I wrote a letter to American Registration Center asking my money back but they never answered back. I also wrote to the postal services fraud center but they never replied.

BUT, I found some information on the official USPS website that proves these guys are scammers.

7. Employment Fee / Guaranteed Employment

Advertisement offering guaranteed employment if customers pay a registration or employment fee. The United States Postal Service® does not charge application fees or guarantee employment. Additionally, the Postal Service™ does not sell any preparatory materials for the employment exam nor do we endorse any companies selling such materials. You never have to pay for information about job vacancies or employment opportunities with the Postal Service.

The United States Postal Service does not ENDORSE any companies selling such materials. NEC/ARC are scammers and we should file a class action law suit against them. If anybody is interested email me at swearingenpaul@yahoo.com.

Possible double post...but this deserves it.

@xEmp

funny...that you would know that the contract said "not affiliated with the USPS."

funny...that information was not provided by the original poster.

Shill for ARC, much? Or, more innocently, do you blindly side with all businesses as a matter of principle?

"Canellation" (sic) is based on a candidate meeting certain criteria; failure to meet the criteria automatically disqualifies one from ever seeing their money again (not to imply that they ever would, anyway). Thus, there is no "canellation" period. Your false implication that refunds are purely based on temporal considerations fits in perfectly with the guiding principles of the ARC; employing deception while remaining just technically truthful enough to remain a free man.

I'm seriously hoping that you'll extract proof to the contrary from the contract. That will serve to bolster my suspicion that you have an ownership role in the ARC, and are writing from an undisclosed location in order to remain one step ahead of the law. Or your spouse, since anyone involved with the ARC would probably consider it ethically unacceptable NOT to spend their children's college savings on a lavish apartment for their mistress.

funny... the contract that you read and signed said "not affiliated with the USPS or US government." And "Not a guarantee of employment." The company was the oppisite of what the USPS was describing.

you should look up scam in the dictionary because as far as I can see that contract had full legal disclosre of non affiliation and services to be provided.

-Bet you just wanted a refund after your canellation period expired and you never even tried to use the services you ordered.

I feel compelled to write this review...I have been dealing w/ ARC in Montebello since 2004!!! I have been completely ignored since having received and failed my first test in 2004.

I have tried conatcting their office religiously 4 times per week (documented)......80% of the time the line is busy, 15% of the time I get the voicemail/answering machine that is "full" and I cannot leave a message (Not to mention that their greeting does not say ARC, it's "National Career Center") and the other 5% of the time I speak to a RUDE person (Hope Villanueva, Victoria, Veronica and Maria the 'temp' secretary who claims to have NO SUPERVISOR!!!!) who lies and ALWAYS has an excuse or different policy explanation. My favorite (and most common) is "call back tomorrow between the hours of 12-2 p.m" ......and then of course, no way to get through.

Today, I spoke to Veronica who did not recognize me...although I have documented speaking to her 3 times before and having explained the SAME EXACT STORY! She did, however, give me the number to the Vice President Ryan (949-291-4076), hahahaha....the number is disconnected! I called her back at her private extension (626) 888-0490 and she sounded utterly surprised; asked me to hold while she called the number herself......16 minutes later I hung up, I had to get back to work.

I am beyond frustration w/ this company. I would be more than willing to get together w/ other people experiencing this problem to take legal action. This is ridiculous...they are preying on hard-working people who are trying to better themselves!!!

The browser is not showing your e-mail, so I'll reply here.I'm surprised they agreed to that.

Write back to report how that went.

That's a first.We'll see if they actually deliver, but I would not get too comfortable until your check/credit card refund actually clears.

I cancel my contract the next day after signing when I saw your information on this website.I'd like to know if we are in the same similar situation.

I called yesterday and they told me the refund will be in the next 30 days. Please let me know so I can act now. I will recommend that you visit the department of consumer affair and put a complaint there and also visit the Attorney at law so they can start a investigation.

you can contact me here carlosventures@yahoo.com.Thankss

I too have a similar situation with ARC dating back many years. If you don't mind providing some type of contact info, I'd like to get a hold of you and discuss this.
