This so called pageant is a rip off !! I lost my job less than a week, after I made my first small payment.
I contacted NAM and of course they said there's no refunds, but I could contact a certain person for exceptions, and I needed to submit my proof. I did submit my proof, from my employer explaining my last day, but still have not heard back from anyone since April. My payment was only $50, I find it very hard to believe they can't refund that back to me.
That will fill up my tank at least 2 times, so that I can continue to job search. It's a shame I had to pull my daughter out, but now they've added more stress !!
