In Oct. '07, The Grant People contacted us saying they could get us a grant for $500, 000. We would need to send $2500 for down payment, other half would be paid when grant was recieved. Then in Feb. '08 they needed money for a business plan which was $10, 000. We gave half down again with a promise that we would recieve a grant for $250, 000 then they would continue looking for other grants for the remaining amount. Shortly after sending the check, we tried contacting them to get status on the grant. The phone was disconnected ane the web sit was down and no one would return e-mails. The Grant People are thieves and con artists.
