This company Videt is already in trouble with the BBB In Utah for not responding to complaints especially on refunds like in my case. On October 18, 2007 I purchased a grant writing course with coaching for $5.050 dollars from Videt and John Palmerson Consulting. At that time a received two manuals which was an introduction to grant writing that was sent to my house. I was suppose to receive more grant writing materials and more coaching that was to continue until funded by a grantor as stated in the contract that was signed .

This company failed to live up to its own contract, by not providing all the coaching and materials needed to write the grant. This company stopped providing the coaching and the grant writing materials back in Febuary 2008. The last communication I had was with John Palmerson was on March 8, 2008 by way of e-mail. He said that he would get back to me. I never heard from him again. I even tried to call Videt with the number Videt provided which was 800-809-7319. This number is not valid. I TRIED TO call John Palmerson NUMEROUS times on his cell with no reply. Finally on July 11, 2008, I returned the two manuals THAT I RECEIVED back to John Palmerson and Videt which John Palmerson HIMSELF SIGNED FOR. As of today August 1, 2008, BOTH VIDET AND JOHN Palmerson refuse to issue any credit or refund that was charged on my CREDIT CARD. ....IS THIS NOT A TRUE EXAMPLE that I did not get what I PAID FOR????

not good business

AUTHOR: gail - ()

My husband and I spent $2000 into this company to help us find a grant. We sent out hudrends of grant letters and in return we received only about 25 responses, all saying nothing. Many were returned with wrong addresses that this company had given us.

It has been three years and we decided that since we haven't  heard anything out of this company or our grant partner for at least six months that we would request our quaranteed money back. We called our grant coordinator and was told that she no longer works with them. Wow, why weren't we told? We have tried several phones numbers including John's and either get no one available or he doesn't return our phone calls. We have tried everyday for two weeks. No answers.

If John is reading this please call us back so we can get this straightened out since there seems to be no way of getting a hold of you. I would like to think that you will hold up your end of the bargain. Your lack of communication doesn't give me the impression that you care about your company or the people that trusted you.

If we have not received a call back this week we will also be finding us a lawyer to get this problem solved. I really hope it doesn't come to this.

Palmerson has not followed through

AUTHOR: michelle - ()

John Palmerson has ignored every text and phone call we have sent. I have now got a laywer involved.  Apparently, that is the only way to get his attention. To sue him.  I wish John would read these complaints and respond. At this point, he would never, ever, ever get a recommendation from us.

#3 Consumer Comment

Agree with Mike B.

AUTHOR: michelle - ()

I totally agree with Mike B. Our situation is almost exact!!!  We put $3,000.00 on a credit card with Videt in February of 2012. It is now one year later and I am still paying on it and still don't have a grant. 
I don't have anything different to say than Mike because our situations are exact. I have had to get a lawyer involved in this to help get it resolved and still John has not responded with a refund.  We will NOT give up.
I do not recommend this company.

THE TRUTH OF THE MATTER OF THE MATTER.

AUTHOR: Mike - (U.S.A.)

John Palmersom and Videt, Inc. promised to provide me with a complete Grant Writing Course. However, he stopped the coaching before the course was completed. He did not provide any reasons for this action. Materials were returned to him personally.

In his rebuttal, he did not respond to any of the specific problems that I encountered. He just basically stated that I lied about my situation. I have better things to do with my spare time than to "fabricate things". I just want him to do the right thing and admit that he is in the wrong. He should refund the money promptly and therefore clear his conscience. At this time, he has not responded to the BBB, Consumer Affairs, and the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
If he has nothing to hide, then why hasn't he responded to these agencies?
As you can see, I have spent countless hours that I can't spare trying to rectify this situation.

Thank you,
Mike B.

the truth of the matter

AUTHOR: John P - (U.S.A.)

i love how people dont do what they are needing to do and then want their money back. it is not right. we provide a service for everyone who is 100% serious, not those looking for all they can get and then get their money back. you dont go to school and take four courses and then go to school all year and then want youyr money back. enough said!! please understand not all you read is true. and people lie and fabricate things to make their side of the story better to those who will read this. i have done this for 15 plus years and to only have a few complaints obviously speaks volumes of what we do, have done, and will continue to do. thank you, john

furthermore, when you submit this you agree that it is all correct and everything is valid and that is not the case with most of these. it is simply a sounding board for people looking for an easy way out rather than putting in the hard work it requires.
