After reading other complaints I will definitely not visit this site. I don't know how they got my phone number but, I am reporting them to the Missouri no call list.

I'm not sure how they got my number but they call every other day. When visting their site just reading the home page they want you to pay 19.99 to recieve information. You should not have to pay anyone for information that you can find yourself for free.

What concerned me was when I checked their registration, it was out of India. Why would a US grant come out of India??

How do they keep getting my cell phone number... I thought the do not call list was supposed to stop that from happening. I didnt answer the cell phone when they called since I didn't recognize the number. Well they left me a nice detailed message to go to their website to get info on a free grant I was entitled to. I decided to check it on here... too good to be true... scammers...

Request a grant.com - scam/phishing
Washington
United States

I mistakenly gave them my phone #. When they called back I checked their 201-740-0032 number and it is a disconected number.
luckly I never gave them any more info or I would have been screwed.
Now they call 20 times a day and just hang up????????????????

I just received this call from 1-202-683-1437 (called ID), message states call back at 1-202-683-1404??? I'm not sure that I can trust this. Why would the Gov't be giving out monry FREE, and you have to PAY to receive it. If grant money is available, it is exactly that a GRANT . . . not something you have to pay for.

Confirmed this is a SCAM!!!http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/consumers.aspx?id=1053

Here are some easy ways to spot this scam and others like it:

Beware of callers who claim that you have been awarded a government grant - grants are only provided to people and organizations that meet specific guidelines and complete the application process. Remember that people generally will not call to offer you money
Never send money to "verify, " "guarantee, " or "process" your alleged grant - requests for up-front fees are a sure sign of a scam.
Never provide personal financial information or your Social Security Number - this type of information, when in the wrong hands, can be used to steal your identity and your money.
Always ask for information in writing - if the grant is legitimate, the caller will not have a problem sending you the information in writing.
Always trust your instincts - like the old saying goes: "if an offer is too good to be true, it probably is."

Request a grant.com - not approved for any card selected
United States

request a grant .com left voice mail on my phone for grant money that did not have to be repaid, but when you visit the site all they offer is credit card and no grant money. all credit card offers that i seclect that were supporse to be guaranteed approval were all denied (secured-unsecured).

Applied for mastercards through continental and
platinum - both denied.

Definite false advertisement. Still can't get them to pull up any information for government grants.

I too received a call today at my home from "Washington, DC, 202-683-1437 stating I can get government money, and can check this information by visiting requestagrant.com, or call 202-683-1404 and this is why I came to that site and saw the requestagrant.com scam and it's true. They want me to send $19.99 to get a list for the information regarding what grant I could qualify for. What is going on here. Please enlighten me. Thank you.
