We are a small body shop business since 2008 and have managed to stay afloat pretty much on our own without grants or large business loans. However, we looked around online to see what kind of options are out there for a small business to obtain capitol. Doesn't look so good! Anyway, the company Goldcom, LLC contacted us and said for a mere $3900 dollars they could get us a grant of $100,000 up to $500,000 and we could have it in around 2 months time. Yeah Right!!!
I looked them up on a site and ofcourse they aren't accredited but the previous company they worked under called Worldwide Asset Management Inc. is listed on this certain site and they got a big fat F. 48 complaints!!! Let me write exactly what I read: (*** has received a pattern of complaints from consumers alleging they are contacted by Worldwide Asset Management Inc and advised that they are pre-approved for up to $200,000 in free grant money. Consumers state they are given a deadline and told they need to pay $3,200 to Worldwide Asset Management Inc in order to receive the free grant money and that it is ready and waiting for them.
Consumers state that this company uses high-pressure sales techniques in order to obtain the $3,200. Consumers further allege that after sending money to World Wide Asset Management Inc, the business becomes unresponsive.) Let me remind you that Goldcom, LLC is ran by the same people. I believe they change names and use fake names when calling potential client's and once they get their money your SOL!!!
I'm glad I looked this up and did my home work because why would a company only want let's say $3900 from you when you are getting almost a half million dollars in grant money that you don't have to pay back. Big Fat Red Flag!!! Always be ware of the scams people. If it sounds to good to be true than it probably isn't. Besides who in the heck gives out that kind of money with practically no strings attached.
Get Real!!! Let everyone know if you have been scammed.
