Watch out! Grant Funding Search and My GrantSite / Grant Master CD supposed 'free' CD offer (you just pay shipping) is a scam! Initially they take your couple of dollars (for shipping the CD) and never send you any CD. Then, to top it all off, if you don't cancel within 7 days, they take another$40 - $70 from your account! By the time you call their phone 'customer service', it's too late. You've been had. The terms are NOT disclosed anywhere when you click to submit. When you call, they'll direct you to another website (.net site that lists the terms) instead of the (.com site that doesn't list any terms) you signed up on and pull the old switch-a-roo! It's fraud I tell you. I got stuck by 3 different similar outfits, so never again.

Maybe my expensive & painful learning experience will help you - BEWARE, BEWARE, BEWARE of these 'free grant searches & free money cd's'!

You can protect yourself by doing a google search on the company BEFORE you sign up (now he tells me that!). So sorry I believed them. The above businesses are deceptive, fraudulent, un-ethical and are practicing cutthroat on innocent consumers.

    Lots of news articles on these grant scams published this week:
    "At a press conference this week, a representative from the Federal Trade Commission admonished online media companies to "monitor their sites for scam ads and get rid of them."

    I purchased a CD from this website for $1.98--which I have never received--and after having to cancel three additional "services" that I never agreed upon, was charged today with a $69.95 fee. I have put this into dispute with my credit card company and have been unable to contact the company. I want justice to this travesty.
