I recently learned about a certain website that has been marketing themselves as offering the training courses taught by me as well as several of my peers in the industry. The kicker is, they give the impression that they are teaching these classes & lure potential students in by giving them the illusion of guaranteed jobs after the successful completion of the course.
To add insult to injury, they put their fee on top of the existing course fee, meaning that the class you could have signed up for directly is now several hundred dollars more.
Needless to say they’ll be hearing from me. *Personally*
Unfortunately, scams like this are nothing new to the Internet, it’s just now starting to make it’s way into the Executive Protection industry. People prey on unsuspecting individuals by promising them things that are almost too good to be true. You know what they say, if it sounds too good, it usually is.
