This unethical SCAM of a company preys on people who are already NEEDING money and TAKE MONEY FROM THEM! I don't know how they sleep at night. Obviously a group of people who have no other way to make money themselves than to steal it!
Described above how they offer the CD of grant info and 'you only have to pay shipping and handling of $1.99'. Then they IMMEDIATELY start charging your bank account a membership fee (mine was $39.95/month for two months before I discovered it!).
When you call to cancel, they tell you they'll refund PART OF IT! Well I escalated my call to put it nicely and they agreed to refund all of it and cancel the 'account'...I will SEE if they refund it all...
Even after they did this, I asked to be escalated to someone I could make a complaint against the company with. Who knows who I really got, but she tried to make me think it was all in the Terms and Conditions when I put my info in for the CD. I looked into it and NOWHERE does it specify that you're agreeing to a $39.95/month membership to ANYTHING! And believe me, if I had gotten the CD and found out there WOULD BE a membership and fee for it, I would have called and cancelled before it ever started!
I think it's disgusting and I hope this helps stop others from falling for this. Ultimately, what comes around will go around for people who do things like this...
