This company offers grant writing services with the prospect of obtaining $500, 000 to $600, 000 for professional grants. The upfront cost seems minor ($2, 600) compared with the possibility of obtaining so much more. Once the company cashes the check, all dealings are off with them.
Prior to signing with this company, a fellow small business owner went and visited the company. Based on that information, we invested as did our two referrals. None of us received a penny in grant money. Every time I would call there was never anyone there I could talk with. I would call over and over and over until finally someone came to the phone. A month later, that person was gone. Amazing. I even wrote a letter to the president of the company, but she never had the courtesy to respond. Thank goodness I do not run my business that way.
After one year, Small Business Funding says they will honor the contract for another year free of charge (imagine that) but since they fulfilled their contract, they have no obligation to refund any money. So far, five months into this second year, they have done NOTHING.
This woman needs to be arrested and charged with intent to defaud. I would be the first to testify!!! Please save yourself time, money and aggravation and stay away. Your case will not be different.
This company does not exist! They are low life-dirt sucking-### of the earth-bottom feeders who do nothing but take your money. I am self employed and I thought I had better sense than to be fooled by anyone. I allowed myself to be convinced that I was hiring a grant writing organization to handle something I didn't have the time, knowledge or expertise in; but to my surprise, I was being ripped off for $2, 600! Not only did I lose all of the money I gave these people, but I put my business in serious jeopardy because of the funds/grant I thought i was guaranteed to receive.
It's been a year now and I can't even get anyone to return my call or even pick up the phone! I was sold this pipe dream by a woman named Jackie Turco who no longer works for the company. I am ashamed that I allowed myself to be so gullible and ignorant! I even checked out this company with the BBB and everything seemed to be in order--go figure!
Take it from me. DO NOT fool with these people, they are PROFESSIONAL thieves, liars and cheats! I hope everyone who works there ends up in jail!
