I charged (I thought, $1.99 to my debit card) to get information on grants for school. I certainly did not enter into any contract or join anything. So far my card has been charged $286.84. after many calls obviously overseas..I recieved a refund of $22.76. After recieving a cancellation confirmation I just realized money is still being taken out of my account. I am a student and a single mother of three. This hurts. Not only has money been taken out under the supposed grantmasters but a home based business scam and credit card processing company as well.

Sucker, that is...

Think. Please.


This gets you a CD? Postage? They have a staff to pay?

Do you REALLY think that that $1.95 is going to cover all those costs? Even if they did a MASSIVE volume of sales at that $1.95 price, they'd be losing incredible amounts of money. They wouldn't be in business for any more than 3 days!

They have to pay their boiler room people to answer phones, pay someone(s) to package the CD, the cost of the CD itself and the cost of the technology to burn that CD, which includes electricity to run however many CD-R farms they have to crank this stuff out.


With ALL that in mind, do you now REALLY think that tey can sell JUST the CD for $1.95 ONLY?

Not a chance.

Did you actually read the terms and conditions on the site? Probably not, because of 2 factors:

One, they put the terms under a separate link that you have to click to see. Although I'd say this is kind of deceptive, it GIVES THEM AN OUT because they can claim that it's not their fault someone was too lazy or hopped up on the PROMISES to click the link and get totally informed.

Two, most people really DON'T bother reading terms and conditions of ANYTHING like this on the net. They really don't. In this age of "point and click instant gratification", people are too lazy and can't be bothered to even make ONE MORE CLICK that would save them all this headache and financial woe.

Every one of these sites, from the ''Free Grants for you!'' to the ''Work at home for Google'' that I've personally been to (and I've been to a few), the set up is ALL THE SAME! The same method is used to lure people in with big promises of ''free money'' or ''something for (virtually) nothing'', depending on people to be caught up in big bucks coupled with intellectual sloth and just clickity-click their way to paying out money they don't have.

Finally, think about this detail: What do they accept as payment? they accept everything BUT money orders or online debit for the FULL AMOUNT. Why? Because they'd have to openly let you know what the final price of what they're selling is at checkout! You'd change your mind really fast if you knew the final bill was going to be 3 or 4 x $78 or whatever they've dreamed up, right? THAT'S why they don't employ a full, up front ''pay it all now'' fee.

Another consideration is what these people are selling you. They tell you that they can give you all the info to get rolling on getting FREE GRANT MONEY. However, what they also tell you, although they really, REALLY downplay it, is that you can find all this info out YOURSELF. Yes, it'll take effort, and it'll take some legwork, phone calls, etc., but wouldn't you rather do it yourself for probably a fraction of what their final bill is going to cost you?

I'm not trying to be harsh to you, I'm really not, but I get a little tired of seeing these reports constantly showing up here, where people who could have saved themselves all this hassle victimize THEMSELVES by not getting fully informed on something that is, really, TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, who could, but for one click, have read the terms of sale on the site and avoided being taken.

In reality, you scammed yourself.
