Company Funds Inc. Grant Rip Off Robbed me & my company of $7, 000 for a supposed grant! Was told i 'Qualified' for many foundations. Not one application went out. Straight out ROBBERY!! Nevada
I got a phone call from Company Funds saying “Congratulations you are eligible for a grant from Company Funds.” These calls started on the 1st of March. 2009 and we were harassed by Company Funds until we decided to use them to help us get a business grant. Roger Kinsey told us we were eligible for $218, 000.00 but we would have to fax him a copy of our blank check attached to a copy of their contract. All of this was done on April 10, 2009. We were still skeptical so he gave us a number for the Nevada Consumer Affairs Division which was a wrong number.
We were contacted again at Company Funds by Teto Guy saying Congratulations we were fixing to be funded by Company Funds and a Dr. Lawrence Nickleson would be contacting us in one hour to explain the next process. Dr. Nickleson called within the hour as promised and told us to continue, we would need to come up with another $4, 000 to be funded within 15 to 30 days. He said we would be funded $226, 000.00. I borrowed the money so we could be funded in 15 to 30 days. Once they got the money all communication stopped. We never heard from them unless we called. When we called they would give us the runaround or put us on hold and never get back with us. It was always one lie after another when we did talk to somebody. Here it is July 31, 2009 and we haven’t been funded yet. We should have been funded on the 23rd of May that was exactly 30 days from April 23. We have given them this long and still haven’t heard a word from them. We want our money back and no one will talk to us.
A man named Ronnie in customer service told me there was no way we were getting funded in 30 days. He told me that they are trying to expedite our file and we would have to wait just like everyone else. I was calling every day or every other day to find out who owns that company. I called one Friday and got Ronnie and he told me he would have to check his tapes and get back with me on Monday. I still haven’t heard from him in regard to what was on the tapes as all of my conversations have been recorded, according to him. Usually when a company records your conversation they let you know up front. This company didn’t.
They have written letters to 15 foundations on our behalf asking them to help fund us. This is the 3rd phase in the funding process. These letters were dated June 11, 2009. They are not the foundations they e-mailed us in Phase 2, but different ones. It is July 31, 2009 and we still haven’t heard from Company Funds. They have our money and have dropped us like a hot potato. They have stolen $6, 995.00 of my money and I want my money back. They have lied to me and I want my money back. This company can’t be trusted. They tried to take money a third time from me. I had to close my business because of this company. They made promises and never kept one. They have left us holding the bag. Now I want MY $6, 995.00 back PLUS ALL THE HELL THEY CAUSED ME OVER THE MONTHS THEY HAVE HAD MY MONEY. I’m tired of making calls to a company and not getting any ACTION. This company needs to be shut down as soon as possible. This is a company who will scam you and take what little business capital you have left, that’s what they did me. I don’t normally talk negative about companies because I don’t want to be talked about. But when it comes down to the nitty-gritty and you’ve been done what I’ve been done, you’ll do whatever it takes to get your money back. I’ve worked hard for what I’ve gotten and I don’t like it when someone steals from me.
