Grant Funding Search / Fraud

1 United States Review updated:

This company is a legal scam. I ordered a free cd and only had to pay $1.98 for shipping. Somewhere hidden in the terms apparently they state they will charge you $69.95 if you don't cancel in a certain time frame. When you try to call them you get a voice mail by from someone who barely speaks english. I don't expect a call back and I will probably be out the 70.00 bucks. I have learned a lesson though. I will never order off of sites like that again. File the claim with your bank and cancel your credit/debit card and order a new one. I wouldn't be surprised if outfits like this sell your info.

    I authorized $1.99 debit from my PayPal Mastercard to pay for shipping for a free CD on grants. I received the CD. Even before I opened the celophane, I was charged an additional $69.95 which I did NOT authorize.

    I also see a spike in the number of spams I receive, all about money-making scehemes.

    I understand that this company does this regularly. It is FRAUD, pure and simple.

    I ordered a free government grant cd, on 1/1/09. all i had to pay was the shipping. 8 days later they deducted $69.95, from my checking account. 01/09/2009, with out my knowledge. On, 01/13/2009, I received a cd in the mail from Grant search.com. I have notified the F.B.I. and i want my money back. I have not viewed the cd and do not want to. I want nothing to do with these crooked people. I was going to send the cd back but the F.B.I. says to retaine the cd for evidence. I want my money back A.S.A.P.

    I also got charged money for something I did not agree to. I was charged $73.07 for a CD and to be able to view a website! I have contacted the Attorney General and also the BBB, I have disputed these charges and I think you all should do the same. I am also considering contacting an attorney! I will not let this go until I get my money back! ANYONE THINKING ABOUT USING THIS COMPANY SHOULD RECONSIDER!!! THEY ARE A BUNCH OF CONS!!!

    I to have been taken in by "Grant Funding Research". I paid $1.98 for a CD (which I haven't received yet) and they have taken $69.95 out of my account. I thought I would have a period of time to look over the CD before I could decide if I wanted to continue or not. They do not give you that chance, they probably haven't even sent the CD yet. I was able to sign in to the WEB site, but couldn't figure out how to use it, so I signed up for their "webinar". I missed the night I was suppose to watch it because I was sick, so I signed up for the next time which is suppose to be tonight. I received my bank statement today where I found out about the $69.95 withdrawal, I was so mad I canceled the whole thing. I would like very much to get my money back if I can.

    I have a fax number to send the information to! My wife ordered a "FREE" information cd from this company that had a charge of $1.98 for shipping and handling. When she saw that there was going to be a fee of $39.95 she called and cancelled. On 01/15/2009 they took $69.95 out of her bank account. I have called and called, and I keep getting a call center in the Phillipines. When I FINALLY get a supervisor they are in UTAH, and I've been told that the coorperate office is in NEW YORK. I have been told numerous times that there is no charge for $69.95, but it's on the bank statement. I finally got a fax number! It's (432)205-5415 to send a copy of the charge to. The ladie's name is EMILY KOONZ, and I've been told that it will take 24 hours for them to call back. Just black out what they don't need to see...ie account numbers etc. so they can see the charge. Include a contact number, and the name of the company...Grant funding search. GOOD LUCK!!

    its called being lazy and not doing the research !

    If you want info on Government grants - YOU GO TO THE GOVERNMENT - ITS FREE! Federal Trade Commission Website

    this scam works because everyone takes the dumb route and pays for information already available for free.

    I along with many others ordered a grant information cd from grantfundingsearch.com. They charged me for the cd and then a week later charged me an additional $69.95. I DID NOT authorize the $69.95 charge to my credit card.

    When I called to have this charge removed and asked to speak to a supervisor I was told that they were having computer difficulties so speaking to a supervisor was not possible. I insited that to speak to a supervisor would not include the computer, since a supervisor is a human being and not a computer. At that point I was hung up on.

    I called my bank and have cancelled my credit card I am disputing the unauthorized charge with the bank. If anyone else would like to try to contact grantfundingsearch.com their number is
    1-888-210-2544. Good luck!

    I just called these people three times and the first time I was disconnected.
    I believe I got the same lady (Dominique) who says they are having technical difficulties and to try back in an hour. She asked this time for my phone number and says that she will send me an email showing my cancellation and if I don't get it to call back in an hour. So then I asked for a supervisor and she tells me they are working on the issue. I asked for a name and she gave me Lisa Reyes. I will try calling back to see what happens next.

    888 210 2544 is the number I called.

    Unauthorized charge. Same scenerio as I am reading about. Authorized $1.98 for a CD, I don't even have CD yet and $69.95 wad debited from my checking account. I spoke with this company today with no satisfaction.
    I am not going to leave this alone, especially now that I see so many people have been robbed like me. Looking for grants and this co. took $ from some who did not have it.

    I wanted to get a grant for school and ordered the CD for 1.99 that was all . I checked my bank statement and found a withdrawl of 69.95 that I DID NOT approve. I went to my bank and filed fraud withdrawl charges. You need to find these ### and put a stop to this scam NOW.
