Grantsdot.com / unsolicited emails

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I recently placed a "missing dog" ad on Craigslist. Since then, I have received at least 25 unsolitited, unwelcome and unwanted emails from people claiming to want to "help" and include this link:

http://digg.com/u1PZZ0

My guess is that they have an automated system that trolls CL for emails & sends this crap out.

I've tried to get them to stop, to no avail. However, in the process of trying to find out who to contact (not that I expected any results), I have learned that this company is one huge SCAM!!! Beware!

This is the chat I just concluded w/their "representative":
K.F.:
interesting ~ would like to discuss further

Welcome to 247 Live Online Support!

Call accepted by Agent. Currently in room: K.F., Ann.

Ann:
Hi! K.F.
K.F.:
hello
Ann:
How may I help you ?
K.F.:
I would like your company to BLOCK my email address and stop sending me unsolicited emails. I placed a "lost dog" ad online and have been receiving these sadistic emails. I want it to stop!
K.F.:
how do I get you to stop!!!
K.F.:
???
K.F.:
you there?
Ann:
May I know what is the company's name that you are trying to contact?
K.F.:
grantsdot.com
Ann:
Let me try to check if you do have any membership to the website
K.F.:
I have NO membership!!! As I said, I placed an ad online because MY DOG IS MISSING and I've received about 25 emails from different people, all of which lead me to grantsdot.com ads ~ I WANT IT TO STOP. NOW.
K.F.:
I've filed a complaint w/the FCC but I want it to stop on your end as well. You people are just sadistic. Do you email people who put out AMBER ALERTS too?
K.F.:
???
K.F.:
HELLO?
K.F.:
Nothing to say?
K.F.:
I realize you are just a drone in a call center, but MAKE THIS STOP.
K.F.:
How do you sleep at night, knowing you work for a company that preys on people when they're in pain, vulnerable, hurt ~ how do you live with yourself, Nan/Ann?
Ann:
Let me inform first that we are the customer for the website and we are supporting various of websites not just grants websites
K.F.:
well, I want this to stop. Whom do I need to call/write to make that happen?
Ann:
Well with regards to your complain, I'm sorry but we don't have any hold on that.
K.F.:
Good lord, who does?
Ann:
You may try to reply back on the email that you receiving from grantsdot.com
K.F.:
I got an email from some freak who added a link to them ~
K.F.:
???
Ann:
As I stated before try to reply back to whoever sent you an email
K.F.:
you are an ineffectual, uneducated drone.

    unbunch your panties KF, take a deep breath, and block it as spam, or make a new e mail. We've all been there, but don't let every piece of junk mail give you a coronary!...look how much time you wasted just post this!

    I'm sure treating the call center girl like a punching bag brought your dog back.

    Grantsdot.com - They stole $57.61 from my bank account
    Grantsdot.com
    United States
    grantsdot.com

    They advertised help to get small business grant and it was free but had to pay $2.97 for shipping.. After I paid it took me to a page where there was nothing to be shipped but you could get it right away. On the page it said the government did not give out grants so false advertising. But then I looked at my bank account and they stole $57.61 I just called and after them telling me the 2.97 was for a 24 hour free trial which was not on the website as she said and I never got any emails from them telling me this .. well after a lot of yelling from me they said they would only give me back 40 bucks.. thieves.. I am complaining to the BBB and my bank about this so stay away. I wish I had looked them up here first.

    Grantsdot.com - Ordered info $2.97 then they added a $59.00 charge that was not stated
    Grantsdot.com
    United States

    The site stated a $2.97 charge, then they added a charge of $59.00 and even e-mailed me stating only $2.97 was charged to my visa. i would have cancelled right then if they had stated that, they then told me if i had cancelled with in 24 hours i could have got credit wasn't given that opption when i purchased the $2.97 service-instead i am getting scamed for my unemployment money. when a company is not up front about their product or service and any customer ever wants to cancell or ask for a refund for a charge that was not stated and is not a service i would ever use. this was not on the page when i ordered from this site, this is wrong and if you can add a $59.00 charge within 24 hours you can credit my visa within 24 hours otherwise this is fraud and a total ripoff.
