Faith Based Fundings principals are the former employees of the now miserably failing grant scam company - Compass National (formerly QuidCorp) - owned by Bobby Fusco and formerly run by Cecil Severin Gates.

They contact victims claiming to be Faith Based; they're scammers hiding behind religion and faith. They truly disgust me. Faith Based Funding CLAIMS to have the ability to get your business thousands of dollars in Grant Funding! It is a SCAM based on fraud and deception preying on peoples misfortunes, and moreover, their faith and beliefs!

PLEASE be aware that it is a SCAM! There are several fraud companies in the state of Nevada posing as grant servicing companies, or non-profits, and Faith Based Funding is one of them. They claim ALL of their proceeds are donated except administrative costs - meaning their HUGE salaries!

Their website claims that their corporate headquarters is in Cheyenne, Wyoming and that their processing center is in Las Vegas, Nevada. What a blatant lie! The WY address is a virtual office suite!! Check it out for yourself: (((ROR REDACTED))) - what a bunch of liars, especially Severin! This business center is a scam in itself. Their main headquarters (processing center) is located in the heart of Las Vegas. All their managers, sales reps and processing are located in Vegas. Or, you can stop in and see their virtual office in Wyoming. Funny that a faith based company is located and operates out of SIN CITY!

Also, if you go to https://wyobiz.wy.gov/Business/FilingDetails.aspx?FilingNum=2004-000466460 and click on the HISTORY tab, youll see that even though the company was set up in 2004, the name changed on 2/11/2011 the date they purchased the LLC. Its a common practice with scam companies they purchase an aged corporation, a shelf corp, to fraudulently obtain credit, show length of time in business, and commit fraud using an aged name. (See
http://www.businessweek.com/smallbiz/content/jul2009/sb20090714_626511.htm )

Please call the WY and NV State Attorney Generals and file a complaint if you paid these crooks any money!

The scam is simple, they tell you they can help your business get thousands of dollars in grants but ONLY if you pay them a RETAINER fee (charitable donationwhatever!).

These guys have been opening, closing, and operating grant scam companies for a long time!

The years of experience they CLAIM to have is experience in Grant Scam Boiler Rooms, where they take retainers for services they NEVER provide! Please report these scammers and file your own complaint here or (((ROR REDACTED))).

Response from Cheyennebusinesscenter.com

AUTHOR: Director of Cheyenne Business Cente - (United States of America)

Dear poster of the "Faith-based Funding" Ripoff Report, 
First off, thank you for your post and concern around "Faith Based Funding" (FBF). We appreciate your efforts as we believe unethical business is not acceptable in any form. BUT before I give my complete thanks, I would like to uncover exactly how we do business with FBF, to clear your inaccuracies and our name.  
To be 100% clear, FBF is not a "virtual client." First and foremost, Cheyenne business center is an office rental company, we have over 50 furnished offices, and at the time of your post, FBF was a good-standing company, that paid its monthly rental charge for an office on our main floor. Whether or not they call this location their "corporate headquarters" is not up to us - we have no authority over that. Our relationship with FBF is solely a landlord-tenant relationship. When they signed on as tenants in our building, we found no indication that they were participating in unethical business activity. 
On one occasion, someone approached our facility and started asking suspicious questions about FBF. Questions that we have no authority to answer 1. because we didn't know the answers and 2. we cannot relay private operating information about our tenants because we do not want to be at fault for quoting an inaccuracy. This would be like us going to a rental car company and demanding information on a person who recently rented a car. However, had this visitor shared with us why they were inquiring, we certainly would have done our best to assist them. We always have been and always will be compliant with any legal investigations into our tenants. 
We run a very sound and ethical business. We research all of our "virtual clients" and this service is extremely valuable to loads of entrepreneurs and business people who need someone who can forward their mail and answer their phones when they are on the road. But our virtual service in no way encapsulates FBF because they rent physical office space in our building.  
Again, we appreciate your post because this gives us some insight into our tenant that was not previously known. But we would sincerely appreciate if you remove our business name from your report as we are by no means at fault. 
If you have any questions about our business or how we operate, please feel free to give me a call. 
Office Director
