In Reply to: They also use other names now since so many - MTs are on to them, so look out. SM

I think Career Speed might be the same company as Transam...........for sure, they have the same exact curious transcribing sample

Transam associates - Bizarre incidence
I received an offer from Transam associates and tested with their sample dictation (I thought it was weird because I could not use my foot pedal but write what I heard on paper and type it down). Before realizing my mistake, I accidentally pasted my confidentiality email footer and sent it. My clipboard messed up and I pasted the wrong thing (scatterbrained I know). A few minutes later I receive an email that I did great on the test and it was a true representation of my work. What in the world? Is this just an automated response to everyone. Are they a scam?

Do a BBB search...  Unfortunately it's not good.  Sorry to hear you have been scammed by them. 


My dentist called today and says his daughter is getting information about TransAm.  I know there was a company a few years ago by this name that was a scam.  She has no transcription experience at all, and they are saying they can train her and get her a job.  Anyone hear of this company lately.

I don't know any new info, but I would stay away from it. You gotta figure, once a scam always a scam.
Ever hear of TransAm?

I am just starting out in the MT field and am thinking of working for this company - TransAm.  Their website is transamassociates.com

Has anyone heard of them or have any feedback?

Thanks in advance

Transam still charge for errors?
Does Transam still charge MTs for errors?  They use to. 
Transam is not a good company...

Read the archives.  They have been reported for not paying and falsehoods.  You may want to check them out deep and hard before stepping into that mess.

You betcha I have heard of TransAm
It is known as TranSCAM in the industry. I am an old MT from the sixties (will retire in two more years, yay!) and I have comforted more weeping women who have lot money to this scam. If you believe TranSCAM has anything to offer, there is a nice bridge up north of here in San Francisco that I will sell you for fifty bucks. Seriously, my friend, you need a good, decent education. Even with that, I would advise anyone to consider another career. I was lucky to be an MT in its golden age. I now make 50% less than I did in the 90s and I am quite good at what I do. I predict that within five years, the MT industry as we know it will be dead--or all offshored. Good luck to you. If you are determined to become an MT, you need a decent school. I recommend either Andrews or M-TEC. Whatever you do, please, please, please, avoid TranSCAM. These people are parasites.

Anything on RCR Associates? sm

They contacted me about a month ago.  They mostly  handle radiology using the Meditech system.  At the time, I had just started PT with a small company but I would really like to get into radiology as 1/3 of the work I do now is radiology in Meditech and I like the pace.  Does anyone out there work for them?  Can you give me some info, rate of pay, pay on time, etc.

Also, what about Keystrokes radiology?  They have an ad for many rad positions.  Does anyone know their rate of pay?  I would really like to know if it is worth the trouble to go through all the testing and interviews.

I just received an offer to work for MTA (Medical Transcription Associates), a small transcription company from Northern Virginia, as an independent contractor. Does anyone know anything about them? The president of the company has been in contact with me numerous times and seems very nice and like a good person to work for, but I need to know if anyone out there is currently working for them or has had an interaction with them, either negative or positive. Please let me know. I already got screwed over by ATSI and I don't want to get screwed again!

Thanks in advance.

Ok everyone if you ever get any emails or communication from a company that is same as the car trans am and associates also their software works with MT Professionals DO NOT I REPEAT DO NOT EVEN BOTHER!!!!!  They are the biggest fraud and rip off company on the internet.  They are based in Valrico, Florida. 

They will say you can learn free etc etc and they claim to be Christian based etc.  They are so rip off.  You have to buy the software first which is over $500. total.  You do practice files they say everyone has to whether your an entry level or a pro at transcription.  Then you finish and if you finish before their two week minimum requirement you have to wait to download the next group sometimes a week or more.  Then after you do 4 groups you test and you may pass the test but they will say you have errors whether they are formatting, spacing, spelling, punctuation, etc.  It is a gip cause you actually probably don't have those errors.  Plus, they are not consistent at all regarding punctuation. 


It is a situation where most of us are trusting enough to think it is an innocent ploy that they will help us learn if we are not as experienced.  They never have you practice on any other specialty except for rheumatology and your practice files are only clinic notes and when you test it is a consultation. 

Anyone recently with Rider & Associates? Oldies or newbies? Thx. nm
