GrantMemberServices.com / billing fraud

1 KY, United States Review updated:

I tried to cancel this service right after I purchased it at their support sevices dept. and they billed my card for 2 programs. I called them and was told I had hit a wrong button and refreshed the page but not true. They started billing me even after I tried to cx the service.

I was looking for info on applying for a government grant to expand my business. i have complete faith in President Obahmas' financial plan for this country. With all the push for stimulus its a good time to get the jump on opportunity.

I am not satisfied with the way this is set up. I cannot access anything else other than a list of institutions or services. I click on the applicable grant and nothing comes up. What the ### is that? Just another rip off huh?

Hi,
I'm writing to complain about a charge of $94.89 that was charged to my checking account without my authorization.
I signed up to receive information on how to request a grant.
There was no indication of any more charges other then the $1.88 initial charge.
Please help me to refund my money back into my checking account. They have charged this amount and have made other authorized charges against my account bounce my checking account.

Sincerely,
Lynda Landrum

This organization if TOTALLY dishonest. They say you have 7 days to cancel, however if you call them they don't work on Saturday Sunday but they count those days toward your 7 days which really only give you 5 days to cancel your order. Their phone staff MEMBERS ARE RUDE.. and BILLING does not reply in the 24 to 48 HOURS THEY CLAIM. I personally want my 94.89 back and will be sending this off to a Lawyer to collect it. Before you pay understand one thing the files they have will do you NO GOOD for grants. Go into the government grants for yourself and pay nothing.

Hi,
I am writing to complain about a charge to my account of $94.89 that was charged to my account without my authorization. I was online with another company that cost $2.99 in which I canceled 3 days ago. I have been trying to reach you guys for 3 days concerning this matters because it was a pending charge since the Weekend and I had to get the number from the bank because I had no idea who you guys were. I also was charged $19.12 in which I have been supposely refunded already. I really do not know whats going on and how you guys received my information but I am requesting a refund because I did not approve authorizations for this matter.

Thank You

GrantMemberServices.com - they won't accept my cancellation

I ordered the product in belief that it was at a cost of only $1.99 for shipment. I later read a letter on the internet that this is not the case. There is a membership fee that is $94.00+. To make things worse, they tell me I MUST try the product for 88 days before I may quit. I did not read this in there information in the order process. They tell me I did. All I was looking for was information on where to look up Goverment grants. I wasn't looking to get sucked into a scam.

I am a small business owner and was charged for this grant service and then they told me I wasn't a small business so they couldn't help me. I see this is a real rip-off

I also have done this and after repeated requests for a refund and IMMEDIATE cancellation, I am referring them to my attorney general for action. I would like to find out who their point of contact is, and address. Will post when I find them.
