Grant Master / I am taking back complaint made a few months ago

Earlier, I put in a complaint about this company.I'm writing to take it back. A lady named Laura called me 10-09-08 and told me they don't deal with the people anymore that charges people's bank cards or credit card. I don't know how true it is what she told me but I did get the unauthorized charge returned to me. She told me they haven't dealt with the other company in about 6 months now. But I will continue to keep an eye on my credit card statements. The charges was reversed but I will not do this again/go through this company. I have a hard time trusting and can't tell if anyone is telling me the truth because, I've been a victim of ID theft before. I DO TAKE BACK THE COMPLAINT I MADE AGAINST GRANT MASTER. You can contact Laura at [protected] Ext.108 for futher assistance/information. The company that was doing the unauthorized charges is called, "REWARD ME MORE". RAVEN MEDIA, AS OF 6MONTHS, NO LONGER HAVE ANY DEALINGS WITH THEM.

    I signed up to receive a free CD on how to find Government Grants and was told my card would be charged a shipping fee only. Then I checked my bank statement and was SHOCKED to see that they had deducted $39.99 from my account!! Never once was it mentioned anywhere on the web-site that they were going to do that!!

    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 page and in the confirmation/thank you email, 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.

    For customer service you may call 866-396-5694 Monday thru Friday 9am to 9pm Eastern Standard Time and they'll be happy to assist you. If you've already tried our customer service department and feel like you weren't treated fairly please contact me ASAP and I will address your concern immediately.

    This CD based Grant Program is designed to help customers Locate Grants, Find Grant Applications, Write Grant Proposals, and assist them with anything else that may be needed in the process of obtaining grant funding. The CD offers the ability to search for grants by keyword(s), in up to 5 simultaneous categories. This program is supplemented by a member's site, this site offers access to live chat support for assistance with any part of the application and proposal process or questions pertaining to the CD or the member's site. Also access to one of the largest grant data bases you can find anywhere. Where you can find both government and private grantors. It offers information from Dr. Porter who is a licensed and certified grant writer. The information that is offered through our members website is more extensive than what other companies sell in coaching programs that cost thousands of dollars. So we feel that we are offering our clients the best value in the industry. 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 page and in the confirmation/thank you email, it is then also explained in the 1st paragraph of the Terms and Conditions of the offer.

It is not our desire to bill clients who do not want the membership after the free trial offer.

    Grant Master - Disclaimer is Bunk
    United States

    While reading thru the complaints about GrantMaster (also under Grant Master with a space) I noticed unfortunately, people are still being ripped off by these people. What I also noticed was many responses made by Ryan R (apparently with Raven Media) and he prints in his response their privacy policy and disclaimer. His says it is stated plainly that by accepting this, you'll also be getting "free" trial periods for other services. Well, that may be so but if these companies are so above board and honest about their dealings, why is it then that every single charge (6 all together) made to my bank account was done with a different company name? I would assume a reputable company would use their real name for each and every charge. So far I've found these companies:
    RewardMeMore
    NetworkAgenda
    BSM/SBA Express
    BSM Grant Search
    Grant Search Assistant
    GrantMasterCD
    There are probably more. No matter how Ryan R tries to explain it away, this group is a bunch of theives and should be driven out of business!!!

    The reason that the charges show under the name of the program is really basic. They show under the program name because that is the service that you are paying for and it is easier to track for both you and our company. The reason you are given trial offers to our membership program and other programs is so you have a chance to see the value of the service that we offer. The main membership is to our members page - here is where you will find all of the specifics on how to be successful with the program. The fast action bonuses are to give you a chance to try our other services at a reduce rate because you are already a member of another of our programs. Our programs do not have six membership charges related to one purchase. You receive access to the main membership related to the program you purchased and two fast action bonus memberships. You mentioned RewardsMeMore, this is not our company. If you are getting charged by RewardsMeMore then you would have had to sign up with them separately.

    To address your concerns with the number of complaints our company has online. We sell between 15, 000 and 25, 000 programs a week and we have been in business for 7 years. Now the fact that we only have a under three hundred complaints on online complaint boards, if you do the math that is pretty good. And yes a few hundred complaints, though good for the number of customers we have, is still a few hundred more than we would like. That is why we locate these complaints and attempt to resolve them with our customers. We leave our contact information for any other customers that read the complaint so that they can contact us to resolve their concerns. That is not the practice of the “scam company” that the complaint writers are describing.

    Here is a description of the service that we proudly offer through Grant Master:

    Grant Master - Bogus debits
    Grant Master
    Kirkland
    Washington
    United States
    www.grantmaster.org

    My debit card has been charged numerous times by Grant Master after I canceled. Now they are debiting it through this new company called Check BillWAUS. There is no information available on them... other than a Telecommunication Prepaid Phone service. I have canceled my card three times and each time they find the new card number... Well it only took me about six months to wake up and realize... duh! they have my account number, they don't need my card number alone. How they got the account number is a mystery... however I think it must be through the transactions. I have now canceled that account and opened a new one. It seems there is nothing else to do to stop this... apparently they are above the law. I see from this message board they have targeted a lot of people. My advice is to cancel your accounts, not just your card and open a new account. I got into this mess via a site called "The free lunch room". www.freelunchroom.com. Please avoid these sites like they are the plague.

    Grant Master is in no way associated with Check Bill WAUS.

    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 are 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 is directly below or above (depending on the site you order from) the "Ship My Kit" Button.

    If this company was up and up it would have changed it's marketing by now, knowing that it is misleading to the public, it continues to present its product for sale in this misleading manor, which suggests that they knew all along the scam they were promoting to the public.

    Shame on you. Would you do this to your mother? Your grandmother? Your wife? Do you really consider this the right way to make your living?

    What morals do you have (or not have). Surely your parents taught you better than to take advantage of others - why do you choose this misguided path - just to make money? It's ill gotten and will only bring you and everyone affiliated with you bad Karma.

    The thing about bad Karma - the sooner you clean it up the better.

    Look deep into your own soul where all our answers are truly to be found - is this the way you want to be remembered in life?

    Choose to make a better difference - choose to turn back to something better so you don't need to look over your shoulder each minute to see if it's someone you wronged.

    I guess all I can do at this point is send you healing prayers to help you, for whatever you need to heal, so that you can turn back to a better life of integrity, if not for yourself, then for your children.

    We are all part of the Oneness - when you harm one you harm us all.

I never received my cd either and if you don't have an original cd you can't use the program.

    2.29 original cost for CD never received (which nulls any contract)
    39.95 "Google money profit" charge
    7.95 "GrantSearch NV" charge
    9.95 "NW-AG.COM" charge
    total 60.14

    Ryan - I'm still waiting to see a refund hit my bank account.
    and your wskc.org website isn't working! Forget sending the CD

    I too was told the CD was free and there was a 2.99 handling fee, so I thought o.k. I'll order it. I purchased it approx two weeks ago. It still hasn't been opened. Accidentally I checked my history on my card today and found there was 39.95 taken off my card that I hadn't approved. I was upset about it, so I found their Phone # and called. The guy on the other end proceeded to tell me that according to their terms I had agreed to cancel within 7 days and if I didn't then they would charge my card 39.95 every month until I canceled. Well for one thing there never was anything telling me any terms or conditions, or about them taking 39.95 every month, or even anything about ever having to cancel anything. He told me I hadn't canceled so they took 39.95 off my card. I told him they wouldn't get any more from me, to cancel me then and there. He let me know that I would not get my 39.95 back even if my CD hadn't been opened, or even if I sent it back. Oh! And by the way there was no FINE PRINT or terms or conditions to even read, it was a video I watched, that said nothing about these so called terms . I am one of these that always reads the fine print before I sign. You cant read what you cant see. I decided the phone call wasn't enough so I was going to go to their web site to complain some more. Once I looked up grant master I found all these others who had been scammed too. I cant even begin to think how long they have and still will be doing this to others, no telling how much they have made off so many innocent people. I hope they are stopped.

    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 is directly below or above (depending on the site you order from) the "Ship My Kit" Button.

    Terms and Disclosures. By clicking "Submit", I am ordering the Grant Master CD™ and trial membership for $1.99 for Shipping and $1.00 for Handling/Insurance, after the 7 day trial I will be charged $39.95 a month thereafter if I do not cancel. I also agree to the 14 day and 21 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 & Terms & Conditions. Charges will appear on credit/debit statements as "Easgrant1". For questions, call 800-479-0979.

    I hope you are lucky enough to read this before you order instead of after you have numerous charges on your credit card. PLEASE DO NOT GET CAUGHT UP IN THIS!!

    I completely agree. This company is a scam. I work in the legal field, so I am one of those people who aggravate you because I read every tiny letter of the fine print in everything I read. I ordered the CD and the same thing has happened to me. There was ABSOLUTELY NO fine print ANYWHERE on ANY webpage that I was addressed to that warned me of these "trial" memberships, no matter how much the very thorough Mr. Ryan Riddle insists that the information is in plain sight 4 times before you complete your order. There is NO WAY I would have ever ordered this if there was. I spent 30 minutes yelling at a customer service representative about this. It took the lady 30 minutes to give me a web address that showed me a disclaimer about these charges. If it was REALLY there on every order page, it would not take someone 30 minutes to direct me to that web address.

    DO NOT PURCHASE THIS IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR LINKS TO GRANTS, OR INFORMATION ON WHERE TO FIND THEM!! Before ordering, I even caught on to the fact that this CD was application examples only, and that it did not contain any information regarding available grants themselves, but only to give examples of how to fill out sample State or Federal grant applications. ALSO, MOST OF THE INFORMATION YOU WILL FIND IS NOT FOR INDIVIDUAL PERSONS LOOKING FOR GRANTS, BUT RATHER BUSINESSES, INSTITUTIONS OR STATE AGENCIES WHO ARE LOOKING TO APPLY FOR SERIOUS GOVERNMENT MONEY. I figured that $2.29 was not much to pay to confirm that my grant applications were correct, so I went ahead and ordered since it appeared there would be no other charges (Yes, NO FINE PRINT ANYWHERE). After my order, I was directed to a webpage that actually HAD a disclaimer saying if you proceeded you would be charged because you had to to get a trial membership to enter, and then it was $xx.xx per month if you didn't cancel, blah blah. So... I DIDN'T go forward with that!!! I never entered any personal information and I closed out the web browser, which is what I would have done on the CD order page. How would I miss the fine print (because it wasn't there) about trial "memberships" on the CD order page if I can plainly see it (while almost hidden) on the next website and not go through with it?

    If you do call to cancel, and they only give you one cancellation verification ASK THEM FOR THREE VERIFICATIONS. They will only cancel ONE charge if you don't specify. You will still continue to be charged for their "affiliate" charges. Also, if they say they can't cancel all three, INSIST!! THEY CAN DO THIS! They still would not refund my money, but at least I got 3 cancellation verifications. My bank automatically cancelled my credit card, so now how would I even get credited for all the charges they unlawfully took from me anyway?
