we gave them account numbers (which there is no money in the account due to job losses recently) They stated that the money would be deposited in the account the next day, now it is over one week later and still no money, I have called the company and they can not find our information, or our names, the hire foreigneers that can be hardly understood, and they never told me that I/we would have to apply for the grant, what they did say is: "The money has been deposited into your account in the sum of $2500.00 tommorrow." There was never anything said about filling out forms, etc. Anyone up for a class action suit on this company?????

The other company is just as bad - Ez1rate.com, they also promised and nothing was delivered

#2 UPDATE Employee

Not Affiliated - Again

AUTHOR: Alex - (U.S.A.)

EZ1Rate.com is in no way affiliated with Advantage America.

EZ1Rate.com in the past has used the same third party marketing company as Advantage American and the two companies, logically, may have discussed issues in relation to the common thrid party marketers. THEY ARE NOT AFFILIATED IN ANY WAY.

Clearwater, FL is the telemarketing capitol of the USA so it is logical that EZ1Rate.com's customer service center may be within walking distance from a number of other telemarketing related companies; this does not mean they are all related.

Nora's employment with EZ1Rate.com was terminated which may have prompted her to write a negative posting about EZ1Rate.com.

EZ1Rate.com is not a front company and it is not affiliated with Advantage America.

#6 UPDATE EX-employee responds

front company

AUTHOR: Nora - (U.S.A.)

OK here is how it works. They get several slam companies to work together. one is the front company. The front company is the guys that try
to do whats right but the other ones below it are the bad guys and the ones that make the money. But trust me they are all linked together just using diff business titles and nanes so they can stay outside the rules of fcc and the laws and claim they are not affiliated.

There are several slamming companies that telemarket these products. and in their verification process they give out the number to the front company. Is anyone starting to get the
big picture now? Florida is the telemarketing capital of the USA. Now their accounting firms they hire may be in other states under diff. names but most of these slams are coming out FL. some are only a few blocks from each other under diff names. Since I have worked for them I can tell you the advantage america office was accrost the street and the managers of them would visit ez1rate office on a regular basis. I no longer work for this company and I am happy for that.
