I was online looking for free government grant moneys to help my kids & I get back on our feet after some awful things happened to them. I found several web sites for the grant info.
One of them wanted $1.97 for a disc on how to research the best places to get grants. I gave them my debit card # & never recieved the disc. I called the bank & sure enough they took out the money plus an additional $39.95 from my account. I told my bank what had happened so they sent the info to their fraud dept.
I tried to find the site again & it was gone so I was looking at other grant research places on the net & found that the site I was getting the disc from. They had not only changed their web address but were using a different name. I also found some sites where people had complained about this happening to them also. There are several sites like this complaining about the grant search sites.
I tried calling their customer service # I found under the companies own site. They customer service rep barely spoke english & told me a bunch of *** about "reading the small print" THERE WAS NO SMALL PRINT!!!!! She said they were not a fraudulent company..... That they would not refund the money back to me nor pay for all the fees they caused me to accrue through the bank.
They cost me over $200!!!
DO NOT TRUST ANY GRANT RESEARCH SITES ON THE NET!!! They are all ran by the same company just using different names.
