National Grant Writing Authority4545 Spring Mountain Road #105 LasVegas, Nevada United States of America
My husband and I own a small business in a village in Northwest Ohio. We were contacted by National Grant Writing Authority about being eligible for grant money. Being a struggling business in these tough economic times we were desperate for help.
We did research on the business of 17 years and found nothing negative about the business and the sales pitch we received from Dillon, an associate of National Grant Writing Authority, sounded very convincing so we decided to take a chance. We had to front $2000 for the process and then when we received the grant of approximately $350,000 National Grant Writing Authority was to receive an additional $5000 for completion of the process. We thought since National Grant Writing Authority was to get an additional $5000 they would be working for us, but I guess they have stayed in business for 17 years by using the money they get up front from people, not from completions of jobs.
After a few months we received word that we were eligible for even more money through other possible grants and we needed to have a business plan for these other companies and it would costs us $5500 to have a professional business plan wrote up.
So I contacted Dillon again and was sweet talked but did not or could not have came up with that kind of money. Dillon stated we were still eligible for the original grants and that was a different part of the company.
It has now been over eight months and we are not any closer to getting a grant. Occasionally we get more form letters of supposed companies they have contacted on our behalf.
If desperate and looking for help please do not get involved with this company. Remember if it sounds to good to be true it probably is.
