I contacted IC Financials on June 11th, 2007 after finding their website while researching Grant Applications via various "government" sites. Our business is struggling greatly to to a severely recessed local market. Upon initial contact - I was asked for a little information about the the type business we have, the type of problems we were experiencing, etc etc. All of the why's and what's that all seemed pertinent.

I was told they would do a quick investigation as to whether or not they felt we would qualify for a grant and would call back within an hour or so.

Within about 45 minutes I received a phone call with a "Case Number" and what they refered to as a "CIT Application ID" - the explanation was that this ID number was specific to the type of grant for which we would be applying - and more importantly that it "locked us in" for definite funding of between $100,000 and $150,000 with 12 to 14 weeks.

The same day - actually within the same hour - we received a packet via email. It is/was a reasonably basic document containing paragraphs regarding and outlining "Scope and Descripton", "Warranty & Guarantees", "Description of Services Provided", "Liability", "Term", "Delivery of Service", "Scope of Disclosure", "REFUNDS, CANCELATION & MONEY BACK GUARANTEE", etc etc...

As per the agreement, I signed the documentation, cut a check for $479.00 and express mailed everything to them, as requested.

On July 27th, 2007 - I received an email from them including a link to download a 21 page PDF questionaire. (Which, as of the date of this posting oddly is still available for download) I downloaded the form and filled it out and mailed it back to them - again via USPS Express Mail.

As of today - September 17th, 2007 - I have not had any response from them. Their website is down. Their phone number is "Blocked" with a code of "VPBX1015" ...

After 3 months of waiting and hoping for just a little break to help get through this financial crisis - we will most likely have to close the business and quite possibly lose our home as well.

IC Financials **update**

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

It appears possible that this company may indeed have used information provided by different companies/individuals in order to obtain government grant monies and simply kept it for themselves.

If in fact this is the case we all need to file with the Attorney General of each of our respective states as well as the US Attorney General.

I also found a site "governmentfraud.us" which investigates government fraud issues various types - and I filed with them as well.

If IC Financials actually did receive the government funds, we would be intitled to a significant portion of the monies.
