Default Training 4 residency

Just wanted to share my experience with this fraud company, "Training 4 residency" with everyone. [http://training4residency.com/index.html]

They claim that they "advocate" to get you interviews. I paid them a lot of money but they didn't even get me a single interviews and I ended up getting 8 interviews from programs that they didn't contact.
I also called all the programs to confirm if they even called them or not and not even one person confirmed that they contacted them or even heard their name! (he calls himself Dr. Eli Green, MD-MPH, which I'm not sure if its fake or not)

After I emailed them to see why is that, and if they even did anything at all, they threatened that if I don't pay them more money they will call NRMP and the programs that I applied with false allegations... and I ended up not matching with 8 IVs and good credentials

I've posted about the company before and I got several messages from other people with the same experience... beware of this company and peoples like them!

What a dude you are, you ended up not matching and is the companies fault, most likely is this attitude of you which they smelled right off the back.

Please use your mind when deciding on doing anything.

people here are smart enough to understand there is no gain for me reporting this fraud company, and they also can see that your only post (ever) here is in defense of these blackmailers, Dr. Eli.

I just joined the forum to confirm that training 4 residency is an evil company. I bought their "personal statement" services and god knows how generic it was. you would better copy and past from samples found in the internet! And when I complained and asked for a better service or refund they replied with rude emails and threats.
What a waste of time and money...

Bunch of liars! don't waste your money with these ppl!
they make a lot of promises but none will happen!all they look is for your money!!!
Absolute spam...don't fall for it!
NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL!!!

They steal the poor img money. The poor img is naive. Do not believe in these Fn a holes. They are scavengers of the world.

strength23
---------------------------------------------------------
You gotta have a thick skin! Don't just give your money like that! Think twice, ask doctors or residents for help. Not these idiot forum people who's asking to write your letter or statements. I'm telling you be careful.
You have to be vigiliant and a human with integrity. Be smart.

I tried training 4 residency, but I would not recommend it to anyone. I just wasted my money. Please try anything but training 4 residency. They are the most unprofessional people.

don`t try training 4 residency either! Very bad service!

Just add these address to your email filter; straight to trash:

Dr. Eli Green, MD-MPH
help[at]training4residency.com

Daniel Greenberg, MD
daniel[at]training4residency.com

they won't add anything to your application except trouble and a huge bill!

I was a little skeptical about your story, I contacted them recently and surprisingly they don't accept any kind of payment method except Paypal, exactly like craigslist scammers!
