Bss Web Grant Access / Scam!!!!!!

1 Wichita Falls, TX, United States Review updated:

They make you pay a little over $2 to look into grants but in the fine print they say they are going to take $60 out of your account ever month. Then when you call for a refund, they can only give you $40. They suck, dont fall for it!

    Bss Web Grant Access - Over charges for services not rendered
    BSS Web Grant Access
    United States

    I am a teacher at Morley Stanwood Community Schools in rural Michigan. I was searching for US government grants in the areas of ecological sciences and energy conservation. I cam across this website sponsored by BSS Web Grant Access. It was linked to government grant information websites, so I naively trusted it. When I downloaded the link, the site promised access to US government grant listings for $2.97. This was promoted as a 1 time introductory offer. It was for school, but I figured for $2.97 I would just put it on my personal credit card. I was called by my credit card company to authorize the $2.97 to which I said "yes." On my next credit card bill, the $2.97 was there as well as a charge for $57.61. I was understandably incensed. I realized instantly that I had been "had." I immediately called the number on the credit card bill and talked with a woman that asked me if I had read the "small print." I told her that any website that offered a limited service as a trial and then charged for the full service the next day without authorization was a scam. She told me that she could remove the subscription to the service, but that I was responsible for paying the $57.61 for the previous month.

    I am calling my credit card company and I will be disputing this charge. I believe that a full refund for the $57.61 is in order. I only visited this site one time for a little over an hour. I think that $2.97 certainly should cover that.

    I have had $2.95 charged against my credit card on 11/04/2011. What I want to know is-How could they get into and charge this amount to my card and is this the end or will 'they' continue to cream off even larger amounts without my knowledge. I shall of course contact my credit card provider.
