Never pay for classes too far in advance
To simplify payments and reduce refunds, All About The Knowledge strongly encourages students to pay the teacher face to face just before (or just as) the lesson is starting. Paying ahead of time without seeing the teacher puts you at risk of a criminal running off with your money without teaching. 🏃💨 Even when everyone has the best of intentions paying for multiple lessons at a time complicates things and is discouraged.
Never wire funds (e.g. Western Union)
Anyone who asks you to is a scammer. ☹
Don't accept cashier/certified checks or money orders
Banks cash fakes, then hold you responsible. 😠
Never give out financial info
(bank account, social security, PayPal account, etc). 🏦
