"Velocity info sys LLC is a FRAUD. They promised me that they will place me in a job after the training but they just lied and wasted my time. They also wrote reviews for their own company as me and that is wrong. I never wrote those reviews. Whoever come across this company, stay away, they will just waste your time and your money. They are a fraud. STAY AWAY! FRAUD AND SCAM."
