I saw an ad on the internet for a free government grant. The merchant 'your american grant' would charge $2.95 to send me a CD. Instead I got billed not only for the $2.95 but also for $58.61. I do not have a way to contact this scam artist and expect someone to locate and help get my money refunded. Thanks!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Getting Your Money Back From Scams

AUTHOR: David - (USA)

Most of the time you can get your money back from scams like this. Especially if this is done within 1-2 months of the charge. If you wait much past that, you will have to contact the person who made the charge. You can research the person or persons who did the charge by tracking back the origin of the charge. This will lead you back to the source of the scammer. It may not be easy but it is possible.

My card was fraudulently charged $600 and I traced it back to the source. I got my money back and had the offenders put behind bars. I also traced back a company who stole from me in Texas. I complained and their business closed down for good.

As far as looking for scams, here is some advice. Look at the grammer of the email. If there are too many errors in sentence structure, misspellings and grammer, you are reading a scam. If they misspell your name, you are reading a scam. It you get any guarantee of income, it is a scam. If your being asked for your SSN, or any part of it, it is a scam.

Recently, I've been getting telephone calls from people with a thick accent telling me they are from my bank. I just hang up on them. Bank tellers will never call you asking you for your personal information because they already have it. Even a bank teller asks you to verify your name and address, the rule of thumb is don't share any personal information with any company ever, ever, ever whether it is on the phone, in your email, fax etc... you may find yourself losing your hard earned cash to a scammer.

#2 Consumer Comment

ITS ALREADY FREE

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

YOU ALLOWED YOURSELF TO BE SCAMMED BY NOT BOTHERING TO LOOK FOR THIS INFORMATION THAT IS ALREADY FREE FROM THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. You took the fast way out and probably did it from spam email or advertisement that you ACTUALLY believed. NO COMMON SENSE WHATSOEVER!!!!

Just who do you expect to GET YOUR MONEY BACK for you??

You have to be smarter with your money than that..

ADVERTISEMENTS from the Federal Trade Commission website:

The appearance of ads in media outlets that you recognize - like your local newspaper or radio station - is no guarantee of the legitimacy of the company behind the ad.
