I was duped into signing up for acting classes at John Casablancas by Seth and Roger, who spoke so enthusiastically about how I would be successful as an actress given the right training that I stupidly put down $1800 for their 12-class program. However, since this was about half of my life savings, I was careful to read and reread the business's policy on refunds. After taking two of the 12 classes, I felt they were not worth the money I had paid and applied for a refund in the way they had specified in the contract; since I had taken 16.7% of the classes, I was entitled to a 70% refund. The contract promised I would get this refund within 45 days, and when I still hadn't seen it after 2 months, I went in to complain--but no one was even in the office, not even a receptionist! (It was 2 pm and the office was supposed to be open from 1.) I had to wait outside for an hour before Seth even showed up, and then he told me that my check would be sent out within the next week. Disgusted, I went home and waited some more, and then finally I got a check in the mail--for $1072.50!! Now, I didn't have a calculator right there in front of me, but any idiot could see that 1072.50 is much less than 70% of 1800. Sure enough, after figuring it out I found they still owe me $240. Please, people, do not make the same mistake I did. Do not give this unprofessional, dishonest business your money, unless you derive some kind of masochistic pleasure out of throwing money away and making a fool of yourself.

PROS: Absolutely none whatsoever
CONS: Everyone working here is out to cheat you and take you for all you're worth
