I was told i was approved for a small business grant and that i needed to express mail around $470 to them for an application and consultant fee. I was told i would recieve a grant for a minimum of $46,000 and as soon as i sent the money i never heard from them again since. I tried calling and they are either all busy or once they told me to wait longer for a legal packet to come in the mail. It has now been two months since i have mailed them the money and i still havent heard anything.

I tried to call today and the number was blocked and covered by an automated message. What do I have to do to get my money back? How can someone try and take advantage of those looking for help? We are in need of assistance not more resistance!

oh no!!

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

I was contacted by these people received a DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT, which looked very offical, it asked for the $479.00 and it had the 1 year guarentee. I sent it in, then was told I would be getting a 21 page Screening Questionnaire in the mail within 3 weeks...I kept calling (very sceptical) and one time I was told it would be longer, but it did show up via email when I was first told, I called again for further assurance and the girl was surprised I had already received it, assured me that I would be getting the paperwork for my grant in a few more weeks, and I would very likely have my grant by I sent it back asap and tried to call them yesterday only got a recording now today the number is BLOCKED! untill today I really had no problem getting someone very friendly and assuring on the phone.
