Now that I think of this, the Raven Media company was a spam on the heels of a Chris Johnson, Grant Educator search. I had initiated a search for grant information and read through the Chris Johnson site. I attended the webinar for the Chris Johnson site and when I could not afford the fees needed to purchase his program about government grants, somehow, the Raven Media Company and website came on the computer screen. I figured for $2.29, I would just look at a cd and submitted debit card information to get same. I received two or three phone calls asking from Raven Media asking about the type of grant I might be interested in and whether I received the cd, and whether I wanted to be eligible for a free gas card. By the way, the cd on line as a download could not be opened when I downloaded it and I decided to try again when had more time and especially since I thought I would receive it in the mail, anyway. About five days later $39.95 appears on my checking account online and I call the company, Raven Media, where "Lisa" advised that it was for access to a website. I told her that I had not authorized this amount; that the amount authorized was a quoted $2.29 for shpping and processing. I, at this time, thought that even though I had not authorized, I would try it; and Lisa gave me an access code to get onto the site to review the information thereon. I also indicated concern that it was a one-time fee in that I could not afford more than the once fee (even though I did not initially authorize. I just tried to be okay with it, since they had done it, and was going to use the information despite the lack of permission. When I tried to use the site, I could not get onto the site that she gave with the access code and during such search, I came across the Ripoff site with a description/variation of what happened to me with this same company. Thank you.
