Government Grants / unauthorized taking money from debit card

1 309 Spruce St, Anaconda, MT, United States Review updated:

on Dec. 19, 2009 I was checking out this web site on governmert grants, they asked me to submit $1.95 for a kit, which i did, this morning I went to my bank web site and seen that they also took out$57. that I did not authorize. I am on social security and a very fixed income, this $57. put me in over draft and is costing $35. plus $5. a day until I get the money in there to cover it. I want my $57. put back into my account.

    I was on line trying to find a government grant to fill out. I was told to pay this one time fee of $1.99 AND THAT WILL BE ALL. They are taking money out of my account

    I went to check my account. upon doing so I discovered that there was a withdrawal from my checking account that I did not give permission for. Not only did this company take my money, but they made up a fake check number. Lucky for me, my bank stands by me. But it was a huge scare on my part!

    The name of the business listed on the BBB website is GRANTS SEARCH CENTER

    I urge everyone to file a complaint against them, especially after noting that the BBB could not verify a valid business license for these crooks.

    To file a claim with the BBB go to http://www.vegasbbb.org/rptrel.asp?bbbid=78196#bci

    Unfortunately, posting info here only allows those of us who have been ripped off to commiserate with each other. It doesn't prevent them from victimizing others.
    File a claim with the BBB as well as with the FTC. They are taking advantage of people who NEED MONEY. Don't let them get you any more!
    Remember, the ONLY FREE MONEY is the MONEY THEY STOLE FROM YOU!

    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 1 - 866 - 370 - 7270 (This seems to be a clearing house for all these companies.)

    It's a pure scam!!

    This business is taking money unautorized directly out of my checking account and then sending me items, like cd-roms, that I have not even asked for or seen on my emails.

    How can they get into my bank???

    You gave them account number - that;s how

    It was probably while internet shopping and YOUR FAILURE TO READ the programs they offered with the survey or $$ of your current order.

    I too have been scammed by this company. I used a prepaid credit card because my gut feeling was something doesn't feel right. I went ahead and paid the postage for the grant package. I have yet to receive it.
    Last night I received a call from them trying to offer me a free gift for $54.00 and asked me to verify the last four digits of the credit card. I told them I was not interested.
    I hope this big rip off company is prosecuted.

    I hope they try to call me back so I can tell them exactly what I think and how I feel. I can't believe the people working for this company. I would feel so guilty ripping off innocent people.

    Yeah, They did the same thing to me as well. I called and complained but nothing. Since I have done my research on grant programs and I have found that this one site is the only place safe on the web for government grant programs. They are call qualitygrants.com They help you find and receive an affordable grant writing program with no scams.

    Government Grants - Charging without telling me
    Indiana
    United States

    I recently looked at my bank statement and seen an additional 58.61 taken out of my checkings account when I was told it would be free. All i had to pay was the 2.95 for s&h and that would be it. I know 58.61 isn't much to some people but it is alot of money to me. Especially with me being laid off and my husbands hours getting drastically cut and with a baby on the way I was looking for some help. I didn't even receive the information yet that is "suppose" to be free. I want that money refunded back to my checking because we desperately needed that to pay bills.

    I too answered a government grant internet scam. I only had to pay $1.99 and they would send me what I needed to file for a grant. I not only did not get what I had requested, a week later they withdrew $29.95 from my checking account without my authorization.

    I agreed to pay $1.95 for a CD with information on the availability of governments grants. No CD has been received though I have been bombarded with multiple emails daily that are the same thing as the original offer I accepted - its circular. When I received my credit card statement I found additional Int'l Visa fees that were not disclosed in the original offer to receive the CD for $1.95 and there is another charge for $58.61 that was never authorized.
