I ordered the Grant Search CD from this site and next thing I know, a charge of 39.95 is made to my account. What kind of scam is this? I did not purchase anything but the 2.99 CD.

Beware of this shoppers!!!

Unauthorized charges to my account! Produced a false charge every other month until I caught it. Very difficult to get reversed! No approval!

This will not be the only charge that is charged to your account, at a later date you will be charged another fee of 7.95.

I was checking my credit card information and I noticed there was a withdrawal from my credit card on 2/6/08 for $.99. I figured that there was something that was clicked on the computer, so at $.99 I wasn't to concerned. But than I was checking it on 2/12/08 and there was another withdrawal for $39.95 that I know I didn't authorize. I want to know who and why this money was withdrawn from my credit card, and I want a refund. With this acct. there is a number 866-370-7270, so my next step is to call and see why they are taking my money and when they are going to refund it.

Same thing just happened to me. I thought the CD that I was purchasing from BSM/Grant Search Asst was the actual program, but that wasn't the case. The CD is actually a preview of the program and you pay $39.95 a month for the service.
I had no idea. A couple days after the $1.97 charge, there was an unauthorized charge for $39.95 on my account.
I called the company and they would not refund my charges.
This website is a total scam.

They are sneaky sneaky sneaky, you pay $1.97 for a cd in the mail, then they bill you $39.95, and then even after you cancel they will continue to bill you for 3 other web sites for $7.95. Make sure when you cancel they cancel everything!!!

Billing me after I paid for the shipping of a free document they offered. I did not request the full service only information, but they started billing me for full service, whatever that might be, anyway. It's been going on for a while and I haven't been able to stop it.

I have no idea what this company is or how they got my credit/ debit information but they also charged me 7.95 two months in a row, for what I am unsure. I have tried to call but none of the numbers I have received are right. I am disputing this with my credit card company but they keep charging it. This is ridiculous that no one can do anything about this.

I ordered a CD for grants online for a cost of $1.98. I never received the CD but was charged $39.95 and $7.95 by BSM Grant, and $9.95 by Networkagenda.com who evidently works with BSM grant. These charges were unauthorized, and I was unaware until my statement arrived.

I was told my card would be credited, have to wait and see. But others should be aware of their deception.

Darlene, You realize by now that BSM is a scam. I went thru it , too. The company behind this and other scams is Raven Media, 2620 S. Maryland Pky., #969, Las Vegas, Nv. 89109, phone direct is 702-214- 1201. I am filing a formal complaint w/Nevada Attorney General's office. You can do it online or by mail. And I strongly suggest you do.

I also purchased the advertised "free cd" and as offered only was to pay $ 1.99 for shipping fee. They (BSM Grant) went back and charged my card another $ 1.00 and then another $ 39.95. Again all was "unauthorized". They have no contact information and clearly they are a SCAM!!!

I ordered a look at a grant web site for $1.99. The next thing I know it is $2.99. I wasn't too concerned about that until another charge hit my account for $39.99. There is no phone number associated with the charge so I don't even know who or where to call to complain about this charge to my account.
