i am a cpa out of washington . my mother owns her own company and was contacted by usa grants inc. she was told she was qualified to receive $350,000 in grant money from private foundations. my mother is a senior citizen and is far too trusting. That being said she faxed over a check for $7500 that was needed to start the grantwriting process. Which she was told she already qualified for.
After cashing the check they electronically stole an additional $7500 from her. After 2 months of trying to reach someone at the company to no-avail. She was contacted and told her grant money was ready she just needed to pay an additional $12,500. When she brought this to my attention i did some research on the company which has only been in business under this dba(and there are multiple)"The Grant People" being 1 of them, for a few months. And there are tons of complaints on file with the bbb. A few weeks ago my job took us out to vegas to attend a conference so i thought id drop by this company. as soon as i pulled in the parking lot i was greeted by several thugs and the smell of marijuana. and the building was as run down as they come(not the ideal place for a legit business i thought).i was actually able to walk right in with no receptionist to greet me ,i was shocked at what i saw. About 20 or so cubicles that housed some of the shadiest looking people you could imagine.it was boiler room with no dress code.They were screamin out deals and dollar amounts as if they just hit the jackpot. Someone eventually asked me if i were here for a job so i thought i would ablige.Within 10 min's they actually sat me down with someone to listen to what they do.
I tried to compose myself as i listened to the blatant lies they were tellin people
and the employee actually joked about how stupid these people are.
She also informed me there was no research dept?? she said "jus make up something to tell them" and laughed. I eventually made my way out unnoticed.
needless to say we are in early stages of filing a lawsuit we have also contacted the attorney general. I will not rest until this criminal organization is forced out of business for good.

Fake BBB report posting

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

Nice try. Your alleged company isn't even listed on the BBB site and advanced fee loans are illegal. There would be no need for a "grant" if they had money to send you to begin with. I think I'll believe the guy that actually went there.

Usa Grants not a scam.

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

I saw this bad report on Usa Grants on the ripp-off report and was worried about working them. I expressed to them my concerns and they had some valid points. First and foremost if they have the capability of electronically drafting the funds from a consumer's account why pay to have Fed-Ex pick up the check. Further more, their were no complaints reported to the BBB. The BBB requires first that you prove that you are a client of a company before you file a complaint. Then they give the company a chance to validate the complaint.

If the BBB feels that the company has fairly resolved the complaint they will list the company with a complaint but list it has resolved. If Dan Spitz is a real client why hasn't he responded to the BBB and allowed the BBB to resolve the complaint.

Second thing that I want to point out is, that the contract that this company sent to me doesn't state that the cost of their service is for a "grant", it states that it is for the work involved in sucessfully getting a grant, research and letter writing. The contract states this in writing and even states that they can't and will not gaurantee a grant .

Why is this ,you may ask... They are not giving away money , they simply offer to do the work that the average person doesn't have the time to do. I was givien a list of buisinesses located in the same buisiness center as Usa Grants and contacted a couple of them to inquire about the conduct of their staff.

I was told that the Usa Grants office sponsored a toys for tots drive from buisinesses that share their buisiness center. I am responding to this report about Usa grants because on my own accord. I told them before I sent my check to them, if they did the work that they promised that I promised to come back to this report and defend them. They told me that was not necessary but I felt strongly about the negativity that I found on this report. because of this report I almost passed on an opportunity to have a company provide me with a service that I couldn't provide for myself.

TO date they have done everything they said. I would like to respond to the author of this complaint, please consider the damage that you are doing potential grant seekers by making a false complaint. If you are a client with a ligitimate complaint there is no need to exaggerate the circumstance and I am sure the company would like to resolve any issue you have. If you are a disgruntal employee or competing company there are better ways to resolve your differences.
