I used this page 4 years ago (2016) to create a resume cause it said it was free. at the end of the process they asked me to pay $1.95 which I thought was disappointing but still paid it since I didn't want to waste my time.
Turns out today March 24 2020 I am reviewing my bank statement and started to see this recurring payment that I thought it was for something else, but since it had a phone number next to the name in the statement I gave it a try and called. I asked them to return my money.
They sent me a letter saying they will return only three months now while they process the rest. how can we report this and where? I never had this situation before.
I will appreciate your help guys.
I have found the site to be very helpful. I have been using it for years... when it was known as Quintcareers. Always found their information to be very helpful, particularly in regards to cover letters and interview tips. I agree with parallelworlds...... take a look at the McAfee review (https://www.siteadvisor.com/sitereport.html?url=livecareer.com/summary/) it states:
Looks like livecareer.com/summary/ is safe
We combed through this site and everything checks out. Enjoy.
And Avast has not picked up anything nefarious.
Website took my credit card details and used them without my consent. Its a carefully engineered scam by James Freundlich to rob peoples money.
Basically $1.95 to download resume automatically enrolls customer into a subscription without their active consent and never sends receipts or reminds the consumer. Absoluteltly disgusting business practice and James Freundlich should be ashamed of himself.
Bait and switch website, basically designed to get your credit card details and then hit your card repeatedly and hope you do not notice. The scammer CEO is Jamie Freundlich and he has made millions robbing consumers this way.
I found out the ONLY WAY you can get a copy of your "free" resume from these folks is to DOWNLOAD it as a plain, unformatted text document (.txt) . While this satisfies the "free" requirement of their advertising, anything useful must be bought at what I feel are fairly exorbitant prices, especially for the unemployed. What is worse is, if you pay anything, even the "low introductory rate" for the 14 day trial, it is no trial, as they will auto renew your subscription at $10 a week!!! This also leads to questions of how effective their cancelling policy is. I would look elsewhere, and I surely wouldn't want a child looking for their first work experience to go here, and start his working life with such a bad experience.
I just want to use the site once to build my resume. I did know I will be charged $1.95 for trial. That is fin. BUT after 1 month I found out they charged me $39.98 automatically. However, I cancel the account on the same day when I found out the truth. But they do not let me get refund. They claimed that I have been used their service for 1 month. They charged $9 something for one week. Oh really, then why they don't charge weekly but monthly? They actually know customer will not notice their sneaky statement for the trail but fraud customers money. If you want to try this site remember to cancel their service at the same day. Really, who will use resume builder for whole month. Just another way to fraud ppl money.
Tip for consumers: If you want to charge people automatically please send them reminder asking if they want to pay for the service.
True & legitimate complaint mywot! First is complaint of mine, and then a roast for the jokers of that sight! :) Seriously all---Don't bother wasting your valuable time on LIveCareer.jokers for a "free resume" Pffffff, not! Something peculiar about it or fishy about it. Yeah, there is, it's called 'Bait and Switch' & it's oldest advertising trick tin the book--LOL (even I bit a little) What is it? Oh shoot! I remember now---something you encounter all the time--NOT! The copy & paste function is disabled WHEN you most need to use it--& I'm thinking maybe it's just a cruel joke @ our expense (the ones who made our resumes on it) Here's some Livecareer.joke---hahahah-- this is for you! You can give the medicine, well hope you can take it too! Keep your humor dearies! (jokers of that site)
"Maybe some person in 'Daddy's 4th mansion' getting kicks of how many of us, never fails, keep on trying to copy & Paste our resumes? LiveCareer.jokers "100 today LOL" The loser probably can't get any other entertainment because he has a really really small penis? Peace out beyotches!
livecareer.com is a disgusting company, that believes $40 a month for a resume and cover letter ‘helper’ is an appropriate charge. They are the company everyone fears, for they wheel you in with no mention of cash. After you build the resume, all of a sudden it is two dollars for a two week trial. Ok, not so bad, two dollars to download a decent resume. But if you don’t cancel what is called a TWO WEEK TRIAL, all of a sudden it gets shoved into a full subscription. $40 a month. Do you get customer service? No, you get to call some out of country center, where they read scripts in bad English. Do you get help from writers for FORTY DOLLARS A MONTH? No, that is an extra charge. If you were smart enough to look up the companies rating before dealing with them, congrats. Don’t be retarded like I was, by thinking they won’t screw you in the fine print.
As other reviews in here have noted, says "free" at the beginning, but will ask for payment of the useful services after you've spent some time building, or RE-building your resume. Bad business practice.
I used this site in January 2012, and at that time I didn't have any trouble whatsoever with being pushed to buy or prevented from using their resources. However, the only thing I remember using was their LiveCareer Assessment which tests you and gives you very detailed results of your strengths and weaknesses when it comes to career preference.
Again, I don't know if this feature is still free, but I can speak from my own experience that their career type test is probably the best free one I have ever found on the net. It spat out 12 pages of breakdown info about my personality as it relates to industry types.
I saved the pictures by taking screen shots for each page.
So, in short:
-Their assessment was great for me.
-Don't give them any personal info, i guess.
-As with all questionable sites, USE A SPAM EMAIL ADDRESS to sign up. Never give out your primary email address unless it's for something important & trustworthy.

Downloading a basic resume should not cost. I did not take advantage of their professional resume writing service.
One is new to the unemployment game after 15 years on the job. I guess your pocket is just ripe to be picked.
I'm lucky to belong to WOT now!
Their 14 day full access is misleading. You assume you are paying for a 14 day access but if you don't read the invoice carefully, you won't know that you are actually subscribing to their services for $34 a month until your credit card statement arrives.
with the step by step walk-through of the resume writing process, i wrote a thorough resume that really got my interviewer's attention. although to print out you resume required payment....it is so worth it! did i mention it allows you to write multiple resumes so you can be like me, one long thorough one and one short summary one!!! and it is free*!
