WARNING!!! Paul Gassi and Eric Young are at it again!! All victims search out Susahn March and all known associates on this one!! They've changed their names, but their scam is the same! These f'ing idiots are ripping people off!!! They call you pretending to be from one of the legitimate grant writing companies in Las Vegas, or working "with" them, saying that your grant is ready to be funded, BUT...YOU NEED TO SEND THEM MORE MONEY!! DO NOT SEND THESE A$$HOLES ONE CENT!!! I have come to learn that one of the legitimate companies former employees, Susahn March, emailed clients information out to her friend, Hinda Joy Hinden, wife of Elliot Hinden and someone named Ira (could be a he/could be a she...maybe a hermaphrodite?). Yes, Susahn, there WAS a keylogger on your stupid 8itch!!! What happened and who this information went to from this point is unknown, but one of the legitimate companies other former employee, Dominic Ling Ling Masteos, is one of the known scammers. Yes, Dominic, a client you scammed recorded your [censored]!!! With all the proof and information below, which by the way has been turned over to the f'tards...somebody WILL get caught and somebody WILL roll on you guys. I wouldn't want to be the one holding the bag when your scam comes crumbling down on you.

This is not a vindictive rant...THIS IS A VERY SERIOUS AND LEGITIMATE WARNING to anyone that has or may be contacted by this group...I am just thoroughly aggravated by these guys blatant scam on innocent people. Please don't let them scam you or anyone else! If you have been contacted or ripped of by these scammers please contact:

They are using different names and throw away cell phones through Cricket Wireless. If you get a call, even if the name isn't on this list, do not pay them! Call the legitimate company you first spoke with and verify EVERYTHING!!! These people change their names, stories, bank accounts, and phone numbers faster than you change your clothes!

Also, DO NOT send ANYONE money through Western Union or Money-gram!!! They also tell people to wire money because it has to be done right away...DON'T DO IT!!!
