In February of this year I was at my all time low. I needed help in a bad way. I ask my mom about finding me a grant online, and she did find this company, United Fullfillment Bureau. I called them with the number my mom gave me, and they return my call.
They informed me that lawyers fees for this grant would be $299.95. I only had $200.00 left in the bank, so my mom gave me the remainding $100.00. they would not ake just any money order, they needed a US money order from the post office.
I sent them the money order, even sent it express so they would get it. They sent me the paperwork they representative inform me that I would be getting to, I was to list what grant I needed. The representative even inform me she was putting in 3 different grants for me
I have 2 children, 12 and 8. My 8 year old has cerebral palsy. He can't walk. So one of the grants was to be medical, another educational, and the last one was to inable me to put my children in a house. There father walked out, so I'm doing it all by myself. My mom trys to help as much as she can, but she can only do but so much.
Each time I would call them, some lady there would give me a date. I would be patiently waited that date in which she inform me that a letter would come telling me how much I would get, and what grants. That day would come, and nothing. The last date I was told that it will come was August 17th, 2007. I was so excited. I'm about to lose my section 8 house, school is about to start back, and I have no money to buy my children anything. All my bills are piling up, and I have no money. I was so looking forward and praying for this letter. Now I find out it was all a lie. Me and my children are fgoing to be homeless, my mom lives with my sister. the agencies here will not help me anymore. I've tried to get jobs, but no one is willing to work with my schedule of my handicap child. Ive have nothing now, and my $300.00 dollars is gone.
I never thought this company was not legit. They've been stringing me alone since February, moving the date a month at a time, then 2 weeks at a time. Something has to bee done about this company. Someone please help.
I have nothing. The little help I get for my handicap child has been cut to nothing, but thats another story. Please, someone needs to do something.
