    I agree that Your American Grant and Grant American are rip offs. I called the 866-546-0923 and no one answered my calls. I also called ther numbers of 866-546-0503 and 866-309-1269. They are also known as Easy Grants. Please be aware that this company changes its name all the time and is a rip off.

    Same issue here. I clicked on an Ad in Facebook. They said for 1 dollar they would ship the software for a 21 day trial. Nothing ever got shipped and 4 days later they charge me 29.95. The number is shown on both as 866-546-0923. Complete scam but you would think Facebook would look into that. I've opened a case with my bank and with Facebook. I believe Facebook is culpable. I'll contact a lawyer on Monday.

    They are in IL is what you found? If they are I can file a charge at the DA. Put a few of them in Jail for 10 years and see if that doesn't stop them!

    I also have an unauthorized pending transaction to my debit card for 58.61. I was also advised to let the transaction post and then dispute it. After it has posted i was advised to change my account numbers. I have phoned the company at 1-866-546-0923 several times only to be answered by an automated voice and told to hold for a representative. No-one ever comes on the line

    Me too -- only they have pulled off pulling four different transactions from my account so far. Under three different names (GOVTFUNDGRANTS; FRAUDPROTECTION; and MYGRANTDOLLARS) two numbers (8007127222 and 8664706898). Total nearing $200. Called bank IMMEDIATLY after each set of charges. Found that the charges associated with the 8007127222 number actually was charged and came from over seas.

    We caught it IMMEDIATELY the first charge (the morning the same day it hit our account) - and reported our card stolen. They still snuck the other charges through a week later. I find that it is a sad state of the financial system when canceling a card still allows charges to go through under the reported stolen card number.

    I got a charge out of the blue from FRAUDPROTECTION. I disputed the charge and cancelled my cards. Luckily (a bit sour, but still luckily), my Credit Union had to issue new debit cards for many accounts due to an unrelated compromise. So, I'd get the new cards regardless, but it felt good to cancel this card before FRAUDPROTECTION could charge more from my account. Also, since I didn't sign up for anything (to my knowledge), I am unable to call whomever it is back to cancel this fake account. I don't care anymore... but:

    To all those out there, if you see a charge from 8007127222 at all, I recommend disputing the charge and changing your card numbers. It's a hassle, but once someone like this has your card number, they'll run rampant with it! Cheers.

    CALL YOUR FINANCIAL INSTITUTION REPORT YOUR CARD STOLEN and then please copy and paste the below link which will take you to the the IC3 it's co-sponsored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C). There you can file a complaint and the more they receive the quicker they will act.
    Same thing happened to me and I caught it when it was just a small $2.99 charge at that time I called as this was something I never even ordered they had my address but wrong phone number so at that time I was given 3 cancellation confirmation numbers. Now I look today top find they have taken an additional $58.61 out of my acct which happens to be debit so add the overdraft fee on top of that. These rip off ### must be stopped immediately!

    I sent about 25 emails to this address yesterday after I called and was basically told "too bad" and they refused to credit my money. I said had reported them to the BBB, the FBI internet crimes, Facebook and my bank and credit card company. And I did do all this too. I said I would be part of the class action lawsuit against them too. When there is one. They never sent me anything either and Facebook should REMOVE THE ADS.'

    send emails here about 20 a day. I got a reply that they cancelled my account but I am still trying to get my money

    I have had the same issues with Your American Grant. I only paid for the one time instant access fee 0f $1.95 later to find that the amount 0f $58.61 was pending on my account. I called my bank right away but it could not be disputed until the money was actually taken out. I waited and then checked again to find that the $58.61 was taken out. I called the bank and they needed me to call the company to resolve it first. Well that didn't work cause the lady got an attitude with me and gave me some bogus answer about cancelling after 7 days in order for the amount to not be taken out. I ended up getting off the phone with the company later to call them back. To my amazement they had cancelled the so-called subscription once they found out I was on to them I guess. This is an unfortunate situation because these people keep getting away with this from the reports I have seen thus far. I am livid because I am a single mother with two children and no solid income and don't need to be losing any money in these tough times. I am really hoping that something can be done for myself and all the others affected by this scamming company.

    I never heard of, ordered anything, or did business with GOVTFUNDEDGRANTS, which showed up a number of times for various charges on my account with this phone number: 8007127222 CY.

    I CANT BELIEVE THIS [censored]!!!

    I ordered the government grant stuff to get grants for college after googleing grants, and i ordered this thing, next thing i know, I have lost $40.00 from these three companies! Best thing to do is just call your local police department and have them look into it. Switch all your account info. Get a new card. Etc...

    I am filing a complaint online, and emailing the link posted above! I cant afford this because I am unemployed the way it is and luckily getting by with college! Any new info, please post!!!

    I just noticed today that these people took out $58.61 to my account twice. Not only that, but they also charge an international fee too. All in all, it's $117.71 that they've scammed from me. EVERYONE, please make complaints and change accounts!!! Even when you think it's cancelled, I have read some where else that they still withdraw from your account! I am not goning to rest till WE all get our money and they all see PRISON TIME!!!

    I check my credit card account almost every day online. I noticed the 1.95 charge along with the american grant name. Upon googling it I very quickly called my credit card, cancelled it. I am not as concerned with the 1.95. However, I can't afford a bunch of bogus charges. My CC company was very cooperative.

    Disgusting that these people prey on people that are trying to make ends meet. I filed a report with the FBI.

    I also used a virtual account number when I signed up instead of my actual card number. That way I just cancelled the virtual card instead of the real one. Everyone should check if their cards offer this new feature to protect themselves online and avoid a lot of hassle.
