Tried to order a cd of grant writing help. Turns out to be some sort of cd I agreed originally to this free service. I thought i only had to pay $1.87. This was just to get my debit card number. The merchant took $1.87 plus 49.95 for something i did not order. No mention about $49.95. I was telephoned at home about another $3.87 for shipping, i said no! and hung up the phone. The next thing i know my debit statement has been debited for $49.95.

No one get one the telephone when you call. This number is listed on my statement. [protected]. Now the card that allowed this illegal purchase vision prepaid will not answer the phone and give me a live person. I have filed a federal bureau of investigation complaint against this horrifying revelation.

What else can i do to get my money back... Plz advise smb!

    I Shawauna Barnes want whomever to put my $49.95 back on my card I did not give them the permission to take that off of my card the only thing I agree for them to take off is the$1.95 and all I got was an cd and they did not discuss anything to me about an $49.95 so if this don't get tooken care of God's gonna take more than $49.95 from whoever is doing this to everyone. So in other words I'm putting everything in God hands and he's gonna work it out for all the people got fraud. May God Bless you and keep you all. I've done learned my lesson.

    I rerceived a cd from this same company GRANTCONSULTANT the cd was supposed to help me with grant writting, training and resources on how to apply for government and private grants well that was not the case. The cd did not offer me NOT A THING in fact they want me to give them my credit card account info which I did when I ordered the so-called free cd. But I canceled the card afterwards. I was able to access their site only once and was routed to a blank page after I did not provide the site with the info (credit card #) they requested. They have called me over 100 times I know within the last couple of weeks and may I remind you I ordered the CD in Feb 08 recieved the cd in March 08 and finally took the time to review the info in April now what is wrong with this picture. I SMELL A RAT!!! IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO STOP THE PHONE HARRASSMENT???..I have no plans to ever deal with this company or its affiliates nor order anything else from them. Why cant they understand this?? I am on limited income trying to modify my living not decrease the income I have coming in.

    This website is a fraud. I was enticed to give my credit card for a free service for info on obtaining government free grants...that was suppose to be a one time only $3.87 shipping and handling fee. The girl waited until she got my card #, expiration date and 3 digit code on card...then after about 3 minutes into the call advised me of additional fees of 49.95 that I never agreed to. There are laws against this type of fraud..and I am going to report you to the BBB for website fraud. While online with Jenny Harris (heavy accent) who played this trick, then refused to allow me to cancel, even when so called supervisor Abby Crimson came online..I was told I could not cancel package and given a pay reference#

    I was solicited by a telephone call several times by a Jenny Harris...to my cellphone due to my son accessing website www.grantconsultant.com. She kept telling me service was free and only required a one time shipping & handling fee of 3.87. She assured me company was legit and honest and that they were located at 871 Coronado Center Dr. ..in Henderson Nv 89052. It was after I had given all credit card info...and about 3 minutes into call...she slipped in that a fee of 49.95 would be charged to my card. I immediately asked to cancel the 3.87 package and back out of offer. Jenny refused..saying she cannot take request to cancel. I asked for supervisor. A Abby Crimson got on the phone and said she was a supervisor..but again told me I could not cancel that same night ...but needed to call 888-868-0848 hotline #. I was then given a pay reference #. I again ask to cancel the 3.87 package. I was repeatedly refused. No one answers this number. This is illegal and highway internet robbery...in the lowest form.

    I ordered the CRANT CONSULTANT CD several months ago and I am only now looking at it and activating my membership. You get a FREE 7 DAY TRIAL for the MEMBERSHIP. If you don't cancil before 7 days then obviously you'll have to pay for the membership. Months have gone by during which I've had the CD in my posession. Ive never been billed any unexpected charges with respect to the actual CD itself. If I dont call to cancil the MEMBERSHIP in time I do EXPECT TO BE BILLED THE MEMBERSHIP PRICE. THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MARKETING PLAN AND AN ILLEGAL SCAM.
    This is clearly not a scam.

    Oh My God! Forgive me! It states that you get 10 free days and that $49.95 will be billed to you to continue the membership. This is right ON THE ORDERING PAGE. Agian- Perhaps if we READ before we leap?
