    To all of the people complaining you should read the fine print BEFORE you buy something on the internet.
    I was looking at this site (federalgovernmentgranysolutions.com) If you read the fine print it states that you will be charged $39.95 a month after a 7 day trial period and $7.95 & $9.95 a month for other services. Also the outfit is based in the Phillipines. SCAM ALERT!!!

    So folks READ ALL the fine print and terms and conditions section of ANY web site you are buying from.

    Seems like all of us have been ripped off. So, how do we get our money back. That's $39.95 that I could have
    used for something else. I thought it was only $2.99 as well then I look into my account and to my surprise there's a charge for $39.95. All I want is my money reversed back into my account and we're good to go.

    I was told that I would have 2 weeks trial of the site for $2.29 that was charged on 2/9/09 On 2/23/09 I was charge $39.95 and THAT was the day the CD arrived. I called, reached a service rep, and was told that if I called before 3/22/09 I could cancel the service. I will try out the CD and report back to this forum.

    I ordered a cd about how to apply for government grants and was told that I would be charged $2.95. They said that the cd was free and I just had to pay for shipping. I just got my cc statement and they charged me $39.95. This is credit card fraud and if $39.95 is not credited back to my card by the end of March, 2009. I will contact the Arizona Attorney Generals Office and file a complaint for, interstate credit card fraud. Mabe the U.S. Attorney's office would be interested in this.Ashame on you taking us for granted on these grants I have filed a fraud statement with my cc company .

    They say up front they are charging you 2.95 for shipping.

    Way down below (I went back to the page) there is fine print saying that they'll charge you 39.95, 7.95 and then 9.95 for other programs that if you don't call and cancel your account for, you'll get charged.

    First of all - the page is very misleading. Second of all - and here is the key - the fine print says:

    For your security, all transactions on this site are protected with Secure Sockets Layer encryption. By clicking "Ship My CD", I am ordering the Grant Master CD™and trial membership for $2.29 S&H, after the seven day trial I will be charged $39.95 a month thereafter..." etc, etc etc

    Notice that you need to click on "Ship My CD"...and this is where? I've even attached an image of the web page...where is the 'Ship My CD' button???
    I even attached another page from another part of this tangled web of lies...they *might* have a leg to stand on with the second one, because they actually have a checkbox right next to the button informing you of where the fine print is, but again the fine print says by clicking 'Submit'...of which there is no button.

    Call: 18663965694 and ask for your money back if you clicked on a button that is not named anything at all near what the fine print says you're agreeing to...they gave me three confirmation numbers for the three additional charges.

    Good Luck.

    I called them and they continually said I asked for this and I pushed enough to get the items refunded to me...there were 2 other charges waiting to be processed on my account.

    He took them off and I called 800 487-7085 and spoke with some customer service person.

    The charges were taken off now lets see if they are put back in my bank account.

    good luck.

    Are you sure you didn't sign up for Google Profits (a program designed to inform us about affiliate marketing programs) & receive their CD? If you did, theyare ones that charged the $39.95 & will continue monthy from now on until cancelled. The other programs that are part of the package is the My Grants that lets you log on & search for government grant availability & another one called Network Agenda that, supposedly, sets you up in various networks for the purpose of gaining business, finding a job, etc.

    PEOPLE WAKE UP!!! If it sounds too good to be true it is!!! The government doesn't give grants just because you all want free money. It doesn't work that way. You all should have checked out the government's website first. Everyone here got what they deserved. You wanted free money...You have to be kidding me...You fell for that??? Greed will get you everytime. And for you losers who think the Attorney General in your states cares...Please..

    NEXT TIME READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS!!! WHILE YOU'RE AT IT...DON'T ORDER ANY OF THE ACAI BERRY CLEANSES EITHER!!! SAME STORY...

    ANY ad promising to give you something for nothing should be an alarm bell. Use your brains people!!!

    Go to your banks and get it stopped there. Technically, you all agreed to the $2.99 charge. That could be construed as "AUTHORIZING" the charges.

    Wise up next time!!!

    This is a phishing type scam, if you respond to their email or go to the web page and enter your credit card number regardless of whether or not you press Submit they will still be able to capture the information then start charging your card for all sorts of things. The only recourse is to immediately contest the charges as Unauthorized and tell the card issuer your credit card has been compomised.

    We were told we would get a cd for government grants for a total of $2.95. Now I look on my bank account and they have taken $39.95 out and we cannot get anyone to answer the 1-800 number given 1-877-495-1145. This is complete bull crap and I don't see how this is legal at all. I want all of my money refunded immediately to my bank account or I am seeking further action by the end of the week.
