    I had a 10 day free trial with grant consultants. The third day I cancelled

    On 1-08-08 they withdrew $49.95 from my account. I received nothing and they think they are free and clear. One ticked off consumer.

    Same complaint here but the only difference is the name they gave me was Carlos Victor. Plus the so called cstomer service # they gave me was 1-866-882-3080. It had the music playing and evething but then a recording comes on tellingu that all the reps are busy and if u have any questions to email rant consultants support and a rep will get back to ou in one business day. Just a bunch of cr*p!!!

    I called my bank to verify where charges where coming from while I waited for a customer service rep at Grant Consultants to answer the phone. When she (woman with an east indian accent) answered the phone, I let her know that I had my bank representative on the line who verified that the charges DID indeed come from them (Grant Consultants in Utah). I advised the customer service rep that I did have legal representation and that if the $49.95 fee was not credited back to my account immediately that I would take appropriate legal action. I also advised her that I was indeed adamant about NOT wanting the membership at the time in which I spoke with thier salesperson and that I had found several online complaints about GRANT Consultants online. The CSR QUICKLY located my membership information and assured me that the funds would be credited back to my account within 6-8 business days. My banking CSR asked made notes to my account regarding the charge and asked me to call them back in 6-8 business days. My banking CSR also advised me that, in the event my funds were not credited back within that time frame, that they would file a "fraud despute" on my behalf against Grant Consultants. SHE SHOOTS, SHE SCORES!!! CONSUMER VICTORY!!! atleast for now...I will do what I have to do 6-8 business days from now. If my issue is not resolved I will call Clark Howard and my local eyewitness news "whistle-blower" hotline to report Grant Consultants fraudulent activity. My feeling is that they will comply. If not, I plan to let the entire universe know about it!! Don't mess with me!!! I AIN'T nothin' nice!!!

    The Grant Consultants in Utah lied to me as well. Their office number is 1-888-868-0848. I agreed to take the priliminary package for a 1-time charge of $3.98 to my debit card. I rejected the membership and was assured that I would not be charged the $49.95 fee. I just looked at my bank statement and find a fee of $49.95 charged by these people. BEWARE! I will never give out my card number again! They lie and cheat and scam you for your card number and then quickly hang up on you once they have made their "promises"! I asked the gentleman on the phone repeatedly about the membership charges and was adamant about not wanting the membership which apparently I got anyway. So far, I have not recieved a bit of info via mail as promised for my money. Not only that, the website they offer for you to look at is nothing more than info you probably already know about grants (i.e, general grant info...what they are, who they are for, etc.). It is pretty much useless!

    We've been getting calls on our caller id from NJ during the day but they never left a message. And then they called on 4/15 at night and asked for my husband and said something about he won a free book or cd on getting free grant money but they needed his credit card for $4.95 for shipping & handling. He told them he wanted some information about their company and was told they didn't have anything. So he told them he wasn't interested and hung up. They called 4 more times in the next two days. And then they called again and I told the lady (that I couldn't understand) if they ever called again I was going to file a complaint for harrassment. She apologize and said they wouldn't call again. I went on and filed a complaint with FTC with number from my caller id. We had a hard time understanding these people; so we never could understand the name of the company. Well they called at 6 more times in the next 4 days. And then they called again this evening and I answered and Patrick asked for my husband. I asked the name of the company and he said Grant Consultants. I told him to never call again because I had filed a complaint with the FTC and they were monitoring my calls. And they were harrassing me and they were scam artists. And then I hung up. So I got on the internet to search for Grant Consultants and found their website and a toll free number 888-868-0848. So I called it and some foreign guy answered and I asked him name of company and he told me Grant Consultants. I asked him where he was from and he said Utah. He sounded just like the man I had just spoken to. He asked what he could do for me. And I said, "Thats why I'm calling you because you all have called my house 3 times today and my caller id says you're from NJ. So I'm wondering why you keep calling me" He said he didn't know anything about NJ; that he was in Utah. He kept asking me if I had a account with them and I said no but you all keep calling me. And I hung up with him. I had tried to call the NJ number back numerous times but it was always busy; fast busy or just rang and rang.

    I had signed up for the $4 cd but did not realize that I was automatically enrolled for a $40 a month “service” that I receive no password to access this site! After several attempts to cancel my subscription, the charges stopped appearing on my account, then a couple of months later they started charging my account AGAIN !!! I believe this is theft!!! This is a scam and a CON and they continue to STEAL your money even AFTER you cancel your subscription
    Come on people, aren’t you sick of being crapped on ??

    To all of you who have had a problem with "GRANTS" and the company charging your bank cards, or accounts. I fell into that trap also!! What I did was call my Bank and finally got a telephone number to this so-called GRANT help/information, after talking to them, and requesting a refund, and that I NEVER charged anything on my account, the company told me that "I SHOULD HAVE READ THE FINE PRINT!!!. I explained that the information for Grant information was FREE, then"there Customer Service Rep said there was nothing they can do about it.
    Long story short, CALL YOUR BANK, Explain what happened, because this is considered FRAUD, when they charge our accounts without our authority, how they get our credit card numbers or bank information is still a mystery.
    What most Banks will do is file a FRAUD report(or you must request to do this)Then, they will investigate which MAY TAKE 4-6weeks.If this doesn't work, then call your local District Attory's office and file a complaint. I was billed $129.00 and live on a Social Security Disibility check of $700.00 a month.plus pay rent, perscriptions, gas, insurance, ect, , So you can all see why I was Livid!!! Good Luck to all of you, I hope you get your money back, I have yet too.Also, this is a Marketing Bussiness, just another RIP-OFF.
