Goldcom LLC Total Scam very good con artists Internet
We fell victim to these con artists. The are very convincing we were looking for help financially and found Goldcom. We spoke to them and asked for references etc they supplied these along with other information all bogus I might add.
We checked the references to find that these were actual companies and have found out now that they are virtual companies. Of course the references give a glowing report on how well this company helps you.
They start off by telling you that with some basic information they can check their data base and find what kind of grant money might be available to you and of course the numbers look good to you. All they need is a retainer fee to get the ball rolling and they will produce the business plans etc to go along with the grant applications for your business to be able to get grant moneies for improvements and growth. They tell you that the IRS allows these companies to deduct grant funding from their taxes since this money will cause your company to grow and increase your taxes and the tax base in general.
Long and short is you fill out their form of basic businss info like they wold need to know to produce a business plan. This will include competition, products you carry, growth opportunites gross sales, and projected gross sales to name a few of the things they ask. So you feel that maybe this is real. After this gets started their next step is a call from your supposed project manager he has found some additional funding available to you but to get it they need to set you up as a 501c3 non-profit company this is supposed to be the go between for these grants for addtional tax saving for the corporations giving out these grants.
Of course to do this take some more funds. After a few days they come again with even more funding and the need to expedite this doucuments so they need some more funds. They even guarantee in writing how you will receive these funds or your money will be refunded. Total B.S. After the last phone call and money transfer that's the last you can find or get a hold of these con artists.
After being caught and doing way more research some of which I probably should have done before and some that I am just now find out is out there and available like this web site they have a method of operation. It begins by watching hits to certain web sites to locate their patsies namely us. Then they do some home work on your business they have an idea that you have been in business a few years etc before they contact you. Once they get you started you are doomed. If Goldcom calls or a Jeff Leonard, Jaeson Glasco and several others check the web find their names attached to Goldcom and contact authourities, Maybe you will get lucky and be the one who puts these people behind bars where they belong!
