My wife and I came across MGR Solutions site last May 2006 on the internet when we were looking for information on government grants to help continue to rebuild our small business.
This company advertised that the US government funds billions of dollars in grants every year. We filled out the short questionnaire. We received a phone call immediately from a man named Daniel Foster who explained the process of their company, being grant writers and what it entailed.
There were three requirements that needed to be checked in order to see if we even qualified. Daniel Foster called back saying we definetly qualified for the grants requested. All we had to do was hire MGR to represent us. The fee was $449.00 and had to be sent in a cashiers check and to get a tracking number from the post office.
He told us once we sent the check we would have about two weeks before receiving our packet. We would have to work very hard gathering a complete price list of all the building materials, equipment and other estimates. He stating there was a good chance that we could even qualify for more money if the amount exceeds more than the grant its self.
First we called the Better Business Bureau to see if this company was legitimate. We were told they were, and they had never received any complaint for this company. Naturally we were ecstatic.
Daniel Foster then faxed us the Welcome letter w/Disclosure agreement. The agreement stated we had up to one year to obtained grants and if we were denied we would be refunded the full amount.
Today is May 10th, 2007, it's been one year and we still haven't received anything. We've called throughout the year and everyday for the last three months. We did everything they requested and have received nothing. 3/4's of the time no one answers the phone, other than leave a message or when you do finally get someone they can't answer our questions, they always say it has to be a manager, or on a such date a new manager has taken over the company and will be calling us a soon as they can, then nothing or some fool saying they're new and know nothing of our account or status, same excuses over and over.
We've done all they requested on time and have received nothing but excuses and/or BS. A SCAM! NO THESE ARE THEIVES!
As many other victims we have read we also will do everything in our power (letters to Attorney Generals, IRS, B.B.B. ect.) to get our hard earned funds returned (in a cashable check) and expose this SCAM. Times as funds are hard enough without this crap.
Our graditude to all you other victims who keep us up to date. Keep after them.
