MyGrant Dollars / unauthorized invasion

1 United States Review updated:

I had my checking account charged for 58.61 and did not have the chance to cabcel anything because I never received a phone number or email or cancelation procedure's on the computor or through the mail. I know I won't get my money back but i will close the account so there will be no more unathorized withdrawals . This is a crappy way to do business . Take me off your mailing list cancel any occount I have with you because if this is the way you do bussiness it isn't anty wonder that your rich because you got the perfect scamm ripping people off !!!

    I got hit with a charge for $58.61. My bank statement says its from MYGRANTDOLLARS and the phone number listed is 866-470-6898 (they never pick up).

    I am interested in filing a class action lawsuit on behalf of all those who have been scammed by this company. If you have had the same problem and are interested in joining a lawsuit, please email your contact info to mattcowherd@gmail.com. Thanks.

    The same exact thing happened to me today...I did get ahold of mygrantdollars however, and they tried to tell me that it was a 7 day trial which was not what I signed up for...They won't give me my money back, but my credit card company did tell me that I can dispute the transaction after it has been processed, but that can take up to 90 days to get my money back...what gets me is that the info they give you isnt even WORTH 58 dollars a month!!! I'm very upset, we were saving our money to buy a camera and now had to take extra out of our account for the household since they took the money out...we need to get the word out to everyone we can on every social network out there, so that this doesn't happen to more innocent people!!!

    I got scammed too, I should have known better, I never belive anything, but the $1.95 was just for the grant list which I got and thats ok, but $58.61 every month for ever! All you have to do is cancel, easy right? Wrong, they never answer so its impossible to cancel and your stuck. I put a stop payment on my card for 6 months, and that cost me another $30.00 What a bunch of rip-offs! I hate scam artists.

    I also have the same issues as all stated aboue. I did get a hold of them at 866-470-6898 after trying about 5 times today since I have gotten charged the $58.61 today. When i did talk to someone they gave me a cancellation # and told me that they could not credit my account because it was past the 7 day trial that I agreed to. I told them today was the 7th day and I want my account credited and if he would not do it then I would call my bank, he stated that I agreed to the terms when I hit the "submit" button, I said I have the sheet printed out and nowhere does it state that I agree to spend $58.61 per month. I also never got an email with any membership stuff.
    I called my bank and they have to let the charge go through and then dispute it.
    I also checked the BBB and the reports are not good (the guy at the 866 number told me they were registered with the BBB-I told him I would let everyone know this was a scam, I am also contacting my states Attorney Generals office on this company. Count me in with everyone else...my email is mary.temple@revisor.leg.state.mn.us
    I would love to get these guys!!!

    Same scam happened to me. I paid $1.95 to see what possible grants I'm eligible for and figured if nothing came from it, whatever it's less than $2. Less than a week later (2/04 was when I paid and it's now 2/10) I got charged $58.61. I'm in for the lawsuit and will be on the phone with my bank shortly. I saw this ad on Facebook.

    Everyone needs to read the terms and agreements section on the bottom of the web pages for any of these grant.coms. they actually spell out that they would take the money every month until you screem uncle.
    I do however find it interesting that this web site https://www.complaintsboard.com actually advertises for these grant.com schemes.

    I am the newest member of the rip off scam commited by Lisa Fitsgerald. The only thing one can do is to cancel your account with Lisa Fitsgerald, call your credit card company and dispute the unauthorized charge, the its very important to change your credit card # so Lisa"RIP ME OFF" Fitsgerald can not bill you anymore. From what I have heard they still bill you after you cancel with them. So change your credit card number(**VERY IMPORTANT**) I am very interested in finding out new information on these fraudsters.Please email me at scottymac1515@yahoo.com. Thankyou!!

    I am in total agreement I could not even finish the transaction so I couldnt cancel or get back on the website
    I got nothing I see the charge registered on my cc in Feb
    for $68.13 It lists London Great Britain on it. Class action would be a good idea I only agreed to the $1.95 list charge. contact me at lob999@aol.com
