Capital Grants Association We were assured a grant of at least $5,000 would be sent to us within 30 days. Once we paid our set up fee of $299 and sent in our paper work, they would do the rest. We have been trying to contact them for 2 months now, and no one will return our calls. Now, their internet sight is no longer found and their toll free # is out of service.

In September of 2006, my husband and I were looking on the internet for info on Government Grants and loans for our small business and we came across "CapitalGrantsAssociation.com." We submitted our contact info and within a few days, a woman by the name of Jill Jones contacted us.

She went through all of the information with us and said that once they received a one time set up fee of $299, our application would be processed and the paperwork would be sent to us. She assured us that with grants ranging anywhere from $5,000 to $500,000 we would at least receive a minimum of a $5,000 grant check within 30 days after we returned the paperwork. Jill also stated that we would qualify for a Child Dependency Act and that we would receive an extra $1,000 for each child we had. We have three young boys.

My husband asked Ms. Jones for their internet sight again, just to make sure. She gladly gave it to him and we checked again (just to make sure), and there it was - a "Government" style webpage.

So by then we thought "what could we lose," since Jill also had stated that we could call and cancel at anytime and that we would receive our refund in full.

Finally in October, we received a "dinky" little package in the mail. We filled it out and had to send it certified to a PO Box in New York.

Here it is November and we have yet to hear anything back from them. We have tried calling again, and their voicemail is full. Their internet sight is no longer active.

My husband had a phone call this morning from another toll free number about his info he sent in for Debt Management. We have never sent in any info such as this. I'm very concerned now because we tried calling the number back but with no results. Knowing that these people have our credit card info, they may be trying to pull another scam with new contact information.

This is serious! We've lost over $300 but was promised at least $8,000 ($5,000 min. grant + $1,000 per child (x3).

Financial Trust Processing Services

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

I was a victim once, but I won't fall for anything like this again!

Just recently I received a letter and a check in the mail from Financial Trust Processing Center out of British Columbia (the envelope was postmarked Canada) in the amount of $2978.25 (U.S. Dollars).

It claimed I was the 3rd verified winner in a sweepstakes I had entered sometime last month. All I had to do was to cash the check and wire this amount (for processing fee's etc.) to them. Once they received my "payment" I would receive my winnings of $100,000 withing 24 hours.
I contacted Akzo Nobel because their name and logo was on this check and it was verified that the check was no good and that they were not affiliated with FTPS. I was told to destroy the check and they already had contacted their local authorities.

I then contacted Mr. Mark Anthony with FTPS and told him of this new information I had received from Akzo, and he stated that my info was false and that they indeed were a legit company and that the check was good. He then stated that he would call me back with someone from Akzo Nobel to confirm everything, but I have yet to hear back from him.

I truly think that they received my contact information from people such as Capital Grants Association. So be careful !

There must be a thousand variants of these schemes. They all give the same result: you loose money.

I have been contacting people in NY in the Champlain area and found that the address that Capital Grants is giving is a warehouse used by many other companies. This warehouse is either in Canada or 1 mile away from the Canadian border and is used only for goods and mail coming in and out of the U.S. I have filed a report to the Assistant Attorney General's office of New York State (518)562-3282 and I advise those who fell victim to this, do the same.

I am waiting on a call from another company that also uses the same warehouse to see if they have a legit name used to rent the space.
