Additional Notes

Complaint: I selected something under refund only,in this case the company failed to tell me,over the phone when I reserved my spot in a ccw class , that they do not refund money to customers if they fail to show up or cancel . In my,case I called to cancel and she told me she would not refund my money. I was unable to attend the class I scheduled. I will not attend a class at this center seeing how they failed to tell me,over the phone when I paid with my debit card that it was non refundable. I disputed the charge with my bank and bwsc faxed them a copy of,their policy that they keep online but I did not visit their website it was threw a friend who referred me. I understand they may have to keep x amount of dollars because. But not my entire 175 dollars. If I was told about the policy over the phone I would have known but besides that there was NO mention of this policy to me when I called and,paid and I do not think it is fair. I think it is deceptive what they have done to me. I even called back the very same day I reserved my spot to cancel.

Desired Settlement: I would like all of my money back but if they need to keep "$50" for inconvenience that is fine.
