I filed for a grant on Grants.com and was contacted by a Christna Williams, she told me that I needed to file a nine page grant proposal and that she would send me information on a Certified Grant Writting Comany Nexus Finacial Rick Allen contacted me after we had played phone tag for a few days.
Rick explained the process of the information needed in the nine page proposal. He told me that the grant I was in line for was only available through January. I didn't have the funds yet, so in a week I called Rick back and he told me that I was going to recieve a lesser amount for the grant because I waited a week. He explained the government needed in return for the grant, a paper trail and every cent accounted for, being the government I thought it was legitimat.
He was very informative, so I believed he was sincere. I trusted him. Don't let him fool you.
I was told to send a cashiers check for 490 dollars made out to Candy Benson in 2250 N.W. 114th Ave. Unit 1P, Miami FL 33172. The phone # is 813-283-0669. He claimed this was Nexus Financial's Accounting/Client Services division. I was told to contact Rick Allen when I sent the cashiers check. I sent the cashiers check via certified mail on 12/6/11. He informed me that I would recieve some information within a week and I would need to proof read it, sign it and mail it back in order to get the process rolling for the grant.
Today is Jan. 10, 2012 and I cannot get in touch with Rick or anyone at Nexus Financial after leaving messages everyday. I plan to file a police report today. I will take legal action immediately! Nexus Financial's letter head indicates an address of 5010 W. Carmen St., Tampa, FL 33609 813-471-1998 ext. 800.
