    I was there I work for ES. Support people were told by management to lie and the support lines were backed up over 2 hours. eventually the lie was so ridiculous that people gave up completely on taking calls. consumer fraud at its finest. ES doesnt want to refund anyone either unless they force their hand

When pressed for an explanation, ExamSoft representatives blamed the high volume of test takers. Are they going to use this same excuse year after year instead of investing in their infrastructure?
