They illegally charge your accounts for services that you did not s8ign up for.

It appears that they may use your information to sign you up for legitimates services like "consumer info" so the amount will not be easily detected. Eg. You will see a charge from cumser infor for 29. 95 and other 29. 95 charges to hide their charges.

Called the customer service number [protected] (This seems to be a clearing house for all these companies.)

It's a pure scam!!

My husband enrolled in the trial offer. This disc that is supposed to be mailed has not even come yet. But they have taken their 39.95. I am out of a job and can hardly feed my family. This is truely a fleecing of the poor people so companies like this can swindle money out of them with no consiquence. Just write it in the small print. OUTRAGOUS!!!

They advertise a free cd with only shipping charges of 2.95 total.
My cd just arrived yesterday but my visa was charged 59.95 along with the 2.95 before that.
They supposedly are charging me for a membership monthly.

Cannot get a reprsentative on the phone and unable to cancel this online.

I apologize for any misunderstanding regarding the services you've been receiving from our company. There are no commitments with the free product. However, there is a bonus free trial period to membership websites that accompanies the free CD and we do our best to disclose this as it is stated 4 times throughout the ordering process - on the sales page, the order page, the confirmation, it is then also explained in the 1st paragraph of the Terms and Conditions of the offer. We offer the trial periods to give our clients a chance to use the service and see the value of it for themselves before they are billed for it. The trial periods are free for 7-30 days from the order date depending on which bonuses apply. We would not have charged you had you called customer service and canceled during the trial period. It is not our desire to bill clients who do not want the membership after the free trial offer. That is why we have the Terms and Disclosures posted on the sales site directly above or below the "Ship My Kit" Button depending on the site you order from.

Here are the Terms and Disclosures that are located directly below or above (depending on the site you order from) the "Ship My Kit" Button. Also the first paragraph of the Term & Condition refers you to Terms and Disclosures on the sales page.

Terms and Disclosures. By clicking "Submit", I am ordering the Grant Master CD™ and trial membership for $2.29 S&H, after the seven day trial I will be charged $39.95 a month thereafter if I do not cancel. I also agree to the fourteen day and twenty-one day bonus trials to Express Business Funding™ and Network Agenda™ for $7.95 a month and $9.95 a month thereafter, should I choose not to cancel. I have read and agree to the Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions. Charges will appear on credit/debit statements as "www.center4grants.com". For questions, call 1-800-479-0979 M-F, 9am-9pm, EST.

For customer service you may call 800-479-0979 and they'll be happy to assist you.

The Information on our Grant Master CD is general information that you can find for free on the internet. We have gathered the information and put it on an easy to access and navigate CD for your PC. This saves our clients the time and let’s face it frustration of having to search out this information on their own. That is why our Grant Master CD is free and you only pay $2.29 for the Shipping and Handling. Along with the Grant Master CD you receive a 7 day free trial to our Grant Resource Center. This is our members website were you will be able to learn the entire process on how to write and submit a grant proposal. It is easy to start utilizing the Grant Resource Center by simply watching the tutorial videos that explain how to access all of the features on the site. Our team of writers headed by acclaimed Grant expert Dr. Porter provides a monthly cover story that provides the newest information on grants and grant related topics. We also provide a quarterly news letter that provides in-depth information on current trends in government and private funding. As well as the latest financial advice on how to find and manage grant money. You will be able to search grants through multiple grant sources. You can search for Federal, State, and Private Grants you can also search for Scholarships. Another exclusive feature of our Grant Resource center is that you can enroll in the Grant A Day program where a Grant is given out daily. In three easy steps you can apply for the Grant a Day program and you will be eligible for it as long as you are a member of the Grant Resource Center. Here is the link to our testimonials site http://members.ravenmediainc.com/granttestimonials/ were you can read what some of our successful clients had to say about our program.

All these features and more are designed to help you be successful in locating, applying for, and receiving a grant.

So we feel that we are offering our clients the best value in the industry. We offer all this for a reasonable monthly fee of $39.95. Ordering our Grant Master CD also includes two fast action bonuses. The first fast action bonus is for Express Business Funding (EBF) which has a 14 day free trial. This program is designed to help customers through each step necessary to obtain a loan for a small business. This includes researching and putting together a business plan, presenting that plan to the SBA, filling out a loan application, and anything else that may be needed along the way. After the trial period, it is a reduced monthly membership fee of $7.95 because you are already a member of another of our programs. The second fast action bonus is a 21 day free trial for Network Agenda an affiliate company. That offers an online date book service that will allow you to keep track of your daily schedule and will even send you reminders to your email and or cell phone. After the 21 day free trial the service is $9.95 a month membership fee. We offer these trial periods to give our clients a chance to use our service and see the value of it for themselves before they are billed for it.

What a scam Give me back my money! You really should be ashamed of using people in this manner if we had money to throw away we would have used it instead of looking for grants! take me off as a member imediately or I will contact my back as a fraud payment and will have my bank coming after you!

About a week and a half ago, i paid the shipping for a a cd concerning the grants funding and how to apply. As of this date I have not received the item though they said it would be delivered within a few day. I did read the thing about them taking 39.95 from our account in approx. two weeks but I noticed in my bank account the debit of my account of the above monies on the 8th day of Dec. and as aforementioned, it has only been a little over a week. So, I hereby declare that we feel we have been ripped off, and want all monies placed back immediately. Jerry L. Wheeler
