You did not receive their services besides processing your payments. . God Almighty, what services where they alleging provided for you past charging you credit card?

I just hated when these scammers would take the students money when their CPR was expired!

Yeah, they're really agitating now. How can I steal something I didn't take and never had? 

I'm hoping others will read this and wary of companies like this.

Have you contacted your credit card company to have the charges removed? You've collected plenty of data to prove fraud.

In addition to the other BS, this is (or could be) a very cleverly worded way of saying that should your employing organization reach out to this fraudulent provider to verify that you completed a course through them, they will say no

What employer would check with them along the other CPR scammers. There are so many of these scamming companies, But may be they actually teach someone to save a live (this is not an endorsement)

We were going to do this, but then my husband changed his mind. He says he doesn't want to have to go back & forth with them. He doesn't want to be bothered by their numerous texts and emails. Ah, well. 

I do plan to give my employer all this information in an email, so she can warn off the other nurses. And I told the nurses that I work with about this scam.

Oh this almost hurts me. 😂

I have actually filed a dispute only once in my life. And it was over a measly $15, for an automated service that wouldn't activate after my card was charged. The company had a VM box that was full and never replied to my other forms of inquiry.

I realize sometimes things don't work/problems happen, etc., but at the end of the day no one is going to have an easy time keeping my money without providing the advertised service if I can help it. Especially if they don't want to participate in trouble-shooting or any customer service whatsoever. Nursing is hard work; it boils my blood thinking about giving it away to a scammer.

Obviously your & husband's decision. But....ugh. There is a process, probably not much back and forth. You have evidence of what the business advertises to induce your business/payment, and evidence post-payment that they are not actually offering that advertised service.

In my case I opened a dispute, submitted my evidence (which was basically nothing more than a short paragraph noting that the automated service was defunct and how I had tried to reach out to the owner) and that was it. Checked on the status of the dispute a couple of times (through CC website) and like the 3rd time it said resolved, the owner had not replied to the inquiry and I got my money back.*

I understand we're all different though, and we all need to decide what level of annoyance/inconvenience we're willing to endure to get X amount of money back. 🙂👍🏽

*ETA I suspect that the reason your CPR scammer is so heavy with the threats is because they don't have a leg to stand on if a dispute is filed. They could also incur additional fees if the dispute is resolved in your favor. Perhaps they are even already in danger of being considered a high-risk merchant d/t previous disputes? Meanwhile you have nothing additional to lose (except maybe 15-30 minutes' time over the course of opening dispute and resolution?)

Well I guess they won this one.

If my husband didn't want to get in the weeds in a dispute I would do it myself 😬

And I agree with @JKL33 I think it would be pretty cut and dry.

It's actually very little work and totally worth it.  There are no bad consequences to revenge served cold.

There is no back and forth. I have disputed charges (All made without my knowledge)  in a state I never went to for Uber, San Francisco, another for ABE books (I have never bought from them) . It is so easy to report the erroneous charges. no back and forth. Remember your credit card wants to keep YOU as a customer, not some scammer.

If in the future you want to separate your bank account from something else. I use Pay Pal . I use this for all our tax deductibles expenses. Easy to get a list from them , tax ready... The scariest outcome is could your husband have something on your credit card he doesn't want you to learn about?

Most jobs specify AHA or Red Cross, but I will say that two of my jobs will not accept Red Cross CPR. So I almost always go with AHA

Sadly, this sounds like a scam. I would report them.
