Touchstone Management / GRANT SCAM

1 TN, United States Review updated:

We were solicited by Rita Wesbecher CEO told us she could obtain 'for profit' grants so my wife and I could open up our dream restaurant. She is a FANTASTIC sales person, but unknwingly to us cannot deliver. We wiped out our 401k plan in order to obtain Rita's services. We paid her a 40K retainer with a $1500 a month management fee for the guarantee of at least a 1 MILLION dollar grant. She told us things like 40K is nothing for your dreams to come true. That she would get us moneies from the government that would come every year. After 60 days we started being steered into a 'Non profit' company and we now required a stragety plan (that she woulkd do for another 10K) and more costs. We were told that she would be getting us grants for our retainer fees and other costs. After 6 months of nothing we requested out of our contract and were willing to compensate her with $5000 for whatever she felt she did. There is much documentation I have so if I can help anyone in anyway please contact me.

    She has done the same thing to her mother. 20, 000. Susposedly to by a home. Now she wont make a payment or call her own mother, I've known her all my life. Tom, I know all about what she has done to you and your wife, Scam artist and theif!
