I read what Hannah had to say in her report #301071 about this scam and agree 100%! They are doing the same thing to me...I agreed online to a $.99 download charge for a FREE demo of the grant software. I read ALL of the info very carefully and I was allowed 14 days to demo it and then if I did not cancel they were to charge me. First of all, the stupid thing never downloaded to my computer, I just got a bunch of jargon and of course you cannot find any email addresses or numbers to call to try to get someone to help with that. I figured 99 cents wasn't a huge deal so I didn't bother any further and I would cancel before the 14 days were up. This was on 1/23/08. BUT...

Then on 1/31/08, a mere EIGHT days later, a charge appeared on my bank statement for $39.95 by BSM Grant Search. Tried to go back to the web site but can't find a darn thing about who to contact or what to do. You have to pay all over again to get into the web site!

I still cannot even use the product that I paid to get in the first place!!!

Then another week later, on 2/07/08, ANOTHER charge for $7.95! This one by BSM/SBA Express.

Now another week later, on 2/14/08, ANOTHER charge and this one by for $9.95.

These are all the same company!!

The rebuttal by a Ryan R. (who does not even use is last name, a huge red flag) is a huge bunch of crap given by someone who knows darn well that he is ripping people off and the saddest part of the whole deal is that we are not people that have money to spare...hence looking for GRANTS to help with education! It is sick that people like this can prey on people that are just trying to get ahead in life by getting some education.

Why do you need to have in SMALL print that if we agree to the Grant program that we also get these other ones? If we wanted the other programs wouldn't we have signed up for those or looked for those online, ourselves? It is all the same company with different names and using this "system" of small print to charge people an insane amount of money each month for products that we can't even use!! IT'S CALLED A SCAM!!

Also, if it was legit, we would be able to actually contact someone to talk with. We would be able to get back onto the web sight with a sign-in name or something since we did PAY for the ability to use the product that you are trying to sell.

I want all my money back and I am filing a report with the Better Business Bureau.

Hope this gets out before too many people get RIPPED OFF!!

Resolution Offer

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

First of all let me offer my sincerest apologies to Kristi. There are no commitments with the free product. There is a bonus free trial period to the membership websites that accompanies the free CD/download and we do our best to disclose this as it is stated on the sales page, the order page, the confirmation page and in the 1st paragraph of the Terms and Conditions of the offer. The trial period is free for 7 days and we would not have charged Kristi had she canceled during the trial period. It is not our desire to bill clients who do not want the membership after the free trial offer ends.

When you order our product you must select "Ship My FREE Kit!". Right next to that button is the following statement:

Terms and Disclosures. By clicking "Submit" I am ordering the Grant Master CD and trial membership for one dollar and ninety-seven cents, after the 7-day trial I will be charged thirty-nine dollars and ninety-five cents a month thereafter if I do not cancel. I also agree to the 14 day and 21 day bonus trials to Express Business Funding and Network Agenda for seven dollars and ninety-five cents a month and nine dollar and ninety-five cents a month thereafter, should I choose not to cancel. I have read and agree to the PRIVACY POLICY (last updated: 02/12/2007) & Terms and Conditions. Charges will appear on credit/debit statements as "GrantSearchAsst".To cancel call 1-866-396-5694, M - F, 9am - 9pm EST.
