On-line Anger Management Providers are fodder for fraud
Orange County based Anger Management Specialists are damaging legitimate Certified Anger Management Facilitators everywhere. One major provider has parroted the websites of other providers. He claims to be capable of providing all of the services that are listed on any other website. This even includes coaching attorneys, executives and physicians on-line for disruptive behavior and civility.
These same fraudulent providers are currently under investigation in a number of California Counties for selling Completion Certificates to parolees recently released from prisons. Since anger management offenses are generally misdemeanors and infractions, the courts simply cannot spend the time to determine if these fraudulent providers are actually offering classes or simply signing and selling certificates.
Unfortunately, there are currently no laws anywhere governing the providers of anger management businesses. Consequently, fraud is almost the norm. Some of these offenders have been involved in fraudulent activities since 2004.
If you are aware of any fraudulent activities on the part of any California based Anger Management Provider, I urge you to contact the local District Attorney’s Office or the California Attorney Generals’ Office. And, don’t forget the Better Business Bureau.
