Another Transcription Scam Shows Its Ugly Head

Back in May we wrote about transcription training ripoffs, companies that sell useless materials to people that want to work from home. We just received this comment from Zo:


“The Future MT course is a complete rip-off. They send you a poorly written book (it is by a well-known textbook publisher, but is still poorly writen), and a CD with some dictation on it.  Then you are on your own.  They don’t teach you any medical termniology or anatomy, it’s not even in the book - you are expected to just know it, so if you don’t have a background in healthcare, you are pretty much screwed. Luckily, I have taken college level classes in both as preparation for nursing courses, but even I am having trouble with some of the modules. You submit your answers via email to some mass inbox, and you are expected to get on the website and grade your work yourself. The answer key, however, has absolutely no explanations, so if you don’t understand why you missed a question, you are again screwed. I thought I was getting a good deal and even researched the company with the Better Business Bureau, but this course is seriously thrown together by some outsider who knows nothing about the field. STEER CLEAR!!!”

I just don’t know how companies like that live with themselves. And for that matter, I don’t know why the BBB, the State’s Attorney General’s Office and other’s don’t make an effort to shut companies down that rip people off like that.

Actually in our new book, Undress For Success: The Naked Truth About Making Money From Home (comes out mid-March) we have a chapter called something like “Don’t Get Mad, Get Even.” You’ll find more detailed helpful ideas for getting a refund if you’ve been burned too.
