Advantage America ripoff Montreal Canada Internet
Hello. I was given a phone call at about 12:00 PM today, from Advantage America.. Telling me that i could get a 12,500$ Government Grant through them. As a starving artist, I jumped on the oportunity. When the deal was finished, i went online to check out their information. I searched Advantage America and found a ton of results saying how their buisness is a scam and so forth. Apparently the name of the culprit isn't given, but his number is. 514-369-4374. Montreal, Quebec? Anyway, I would like the money i'm owed, and for everyone else to recieve their money as well. I know there are a lot of us, and you have probably already been contacted on this one. Thanks. Claire Merchantville, New JerseyU.S.A.

Steven Wilson called me saying I would receive a federal grant into my bank account for the amount of $8,000.00. He would not give me the full address, only the zip code in Miami Florida. He also gave me a customer service number, when i called the number, I asked the lady who answered the phone (by the way when you call that number all it says is thank you for calling Customer Service, all of our representatives are busy right now, please wait for the next available call) to speak to her supervisor I was put on hold and they never came back to the phone. Samuel Wilson had said that I was recieving this grant that i didn't have to pay back because i've filed my income taxes on time and have never filed a bankruptcy.

They offered me a $12,500 grant from the federal government as a supplement for having filed tax returns every year and as a government reward that is being offered on an annual basis to people who have not received it before.

Advantage America ripoff, fraud, scam Nationwide
I received a phone call at 10:00 a.m PST from a company claiming to be Advantage America. I spoke with two different people, both of whom spoke such poor English that I couldn't understand them. I finally understood them to say that I had been qualifed by the U.S. Government to receive $12,500 in grants because I am a legal taxpayer. This sounded pretty fishy, so I asked them for their corporate ID, address, telephone number and how they got my name and number. They gave me their phone number, but just kept repeating that they represented the U.S. Government. I hung up on them, but looked them up here and I see that this is a definite fraud and a way to extort money. Since they are claiming to represent the U.S. Government, I am surprised that the Fed's aren't pursuing this. If you hear from them, hang up. They will get your bank account number and start charging you for stuff you don't want or need. Barbara Pleasanton, CaliforniaU.S.A.

I recieved a phone call on friday November 11,2005 saying that I had been approved by the goverment for a grant. The sum of $12,500.00 would be deposited into my checking account for the transfer fee of $49.95 on Monday morning November 14,2005. It's Monday and I checked the account and no deposit was made. I then called the phone number for Advantage America and was informed that I had NOT been approved for a grant by the goverment, but that I would recieve a booklet in the mail that helps to obtain goverment grants. Well, I then tried to cancel the membership and was informed that I could not cancel for 48 hours. I am scared to find out what is going to happen to my bank account after this moment of insanity, thinking that I was actually going to recieve this money. Terry Ft. Stewart, GeorgiaU.S.A.

Wow. Are they persistant... after recieving more than 20 calls from the same person in a 2 week period, I finally asked what the calls were about. I was told I too qualify for a grant upto 12,500. At that point, the gentleman requested my checking account number including the routing number so that a wire transfer could be completed. He started to get pushy so I demanded a call back number and the name of a supervisor. Getting that little bit of information was worse than pulling teeth. After getting the number for Advantage America, I phoned the Better Business Bureau in Florida in an attempt to find out more info regarding a company that is requesting a checking account number over the phone. They in turn routed me to the BBB in MD I was informed by a representative of the MD BBB that she currently has 213 complaints regarding this company. I then phoned the 866 telephone number for Advantage America in an attempt to get the name of any of the corporate officers. After being on hold for more than 95 minutes, I was informed that they could not give out this information. I was informed though that a woman named Crystal Brown, who supposedly works in the corporate offce, would return my call with the names of the Corporate Officers. Believe me, I am not holding my breath. I did get the satisfaction of costing them a bundle in phone toll charges though!!! Maybe later today, if I find I have the time and patience, I will call again trying to get the requested info. Afterall, it is a toll-free number and costs me nothing but time...

I received several calls from a guy named James Avery. He claimed that he worked for the FBI. He stated that a survey was conducted in my city and that my phone no. was randomly chosen for a $12,500 government grant. He also stated that I would receive $500 in coupons that could be cashed. He stated that I would have to pay $49.99 only after the $12,500 was deposited into my account. He stated that I would be signed up for health insurance costing $299. He stated that after 2mos, if I didn't want it all I had to do was call the customer service number and cancel. After several calls, and the story changing several times, I decided to close my checking account and explain to the bank why I wanted to open another account. Another guy called from the same company. When I stated that I was going to call the Better business bureau, his exact words were, I hope you do and stop being such a bitch. Then he hung up the phone. A few days later I received a letter stating that I would be billed within 7 days for the $299. It was signed by someone with the first name Crystal. It had a phone number and a website to contact them to cancel. Needless to say, the phone number was a fluke and the website led me here. I hope whoever these people are get caught and pay for what they have done to innocent people. Also I did find out that one of the numbers that they called from was a Rogers AT&T Wireless phone. When I contacted Rogers At&t wireless they stated that they couldn't tell me who the phone was registered to. Jane Jonesboro, GeorgiaU.S.A.

Advance America, Advantage America ripoff from Advantage america Winterpark Florida
I was JUST called and told that I received a $12,500 tax payer grant. I thought it was true, because I'm in college and have been applying for college grants. The person that contacted me name was Crystal Jones ID#267 I gave her my account information AFTER I gave her the 3rd degree, and she said she was going to transfer me over to the verification department. I was transferred and I spoke to Abigale. Abigale recorded some of my information, but I unknowingly gave her the wrong information. I gave the correct routing number and correct account number and the wrong numbers in between. At the end of the verification, they asked if I agree and accept the terms and I said NO. They were upset and I hung up. Crystal called back and reassured me, but I couldn't shake the bad feeling that I had, so she transferred me again and that's when I went to google and typed in advantage america and your beware of rip-off popped up. Shawn, the second verification representative came on the line and answered my questions and as soon as he turned on the recording, I said I do not authorize this transaction, he said why and I said I see that this is a rip off and he got mad and hung up. To make sure my money is safe, I called the bank and they told me that since I have more than 1 checking account, I can re-route everything in my second account so the rip off artist don' t access my account.

I was contacte by Chanel Webster of Advantage Health Care, ID# 112090 at about 3:00 p.m. 10/5/05 Offering a $12,500 grant not a loan, but free money. She needed my checking account # to have their company send $100 directly into my account. In addition I would be getting $500 for groceries. Her verification manager is Monica Perkins who was very adamant about getting my checking account #. I told her to send me something in the mail. She said the call is monitored by the FCC and there was no way she can tap into my account. She assured me that I had nothing to worry about. I asked for her phone # and she was evasive. I was adamant about not giving my #s to anyone over the phone. I told her I'll forfeit the offere and she was not pleased and hung up. M.E. Aptos, CaliforniaU.S.A.

I was called about 3 weeks ago, by a man named Sean Phillips. He told me I was selected to receive a 5,000. grant. He told me that there was a one time fee of 49.95 for transaction fees. I told him that I didn't have that much in my account, He told me it was okay, they will take the fee out of the account after they deposit 5,000.00 into my account. He told me that I had to have a checking account, and I told him I didn't have one, he asked me if I had any relatives or friends who would do this for me and it would be deposited, I told him yes. I got in touch with my friend, and he also called my friend at work to approve it. This took place on a Friday. He told me the money would be in my account Monday morning.When Monday came, I called her and she said it was not in there. So I waited until Tuesday to see if it was deposited, it wasn't. Then I received a welcome package in the mail. Well, when I first spoke with Sean, he told me that the package would be free for 3 mts. then if i decided i didn't want it, I could call and cancel. So when I received this welcome package it said I only had 7 days to call and cancel. When I called the rep. told me she was unable to autohrize a cancel and someone would call me back. no one called. When I recalled themn back, they told me it would take 3 mts. to get my money back. and I told them I was gonna contact the BBB and they told me go ahead. They wouldn't put a supervisor on the telephone. so if you receive a phone call from Grant America (the name they gave me the first time they contacted me) then dont give out any account info. they charged me 350.00 and never sent me any kind of money. just a letter, and a book of coupons which I have to pay for.

Advantage America fraudulent billing Winter Park Florida
Below is a copy of the letter I sent to the Attorney General of Ohio. I have also contacted the Secret Service, World Trade Commissions, and the Better Business Bureau (BBB). I had no luck with the BBB, and I'm still waiting on a response from the others. I am representing my brother, Kyle Harvey, since I had some involvement in his experience with Advantage America. It started when they called me asking for a guy named David. I assume I had David's old phone number. They began asking me questions like, do you pay your taxes on time every year, and am I a U.S. citizen? I could barely understand the man on the phone, because of his foreign accent. They told me that I am eligible for a grant in the amount of $12,500. He said his name was ?Frank.? In order to receive the money, I would have to give them the account number to have the money wired within 48 hours. I didn't give it to them right away. They said that when the money was transferred, a processing fee of $49.95 would be deducted...but at the same time that money was deposited. I thought about it for a while, and figured it was too good to be true. I didn't have any money in my account at the time, so I had nothing to lose. I gave them the information to have the money transferred to my account. It included my checking account number and bank routing number. A couple of days later, they called me back stating they had some technical difficulties with my funds transferring. They said they needed another account number. I didn't have another account. They said that a friend or family member's account would work. I called my brother, and he said he'd do it. He gave them his account information, and soon after, my account was overdrawn, because they took $49.95 out of it after they stated they had difficulties. There was still no grant money deposited in my account, nor my brothers. I contacted my bank, and they helped me get my money back and closed my account. Then, they hit my brother's account! A total of 3 times: * January 11, 2006 for $49.95 * February 2, 2006 for $19.95 * February 16, 2006 for $299.95 A total of $369.85 was wrongfully taken from his account. I tried contacting them, but every time I called them I got someone with a foreign accent. I couldn't understand a word they were saying. In the meantime, I was receiving phone calls from them. They stated that I was still eligible for this grant money. I told them that I wanted my brother's money back, and they said they had no record of an account in his name. Liars! They proceeded to harass me, calling me and lying to me about receiving grant money. They must've thought I was stupid. Perhaps they tried to deduct money from my account, then found out the account was closed. They didn't give up until recently (in August). During the entire summer months, I would get phone calls from someone with a foreign accent. I had a feeling it was them, and I usually hung up on them, because I couldn't understand them. One time, a man with the accent called asking me if my father was still alive. I told him, ?that is none of your business.? He said that if he was alive, I am eligible to receive money in the amount of $7,500. I told him to stop calling me, and hung up the phone. He actually started cussing at me, because I wasn't interested in what he had to say. About a week later, I get another call. It sounded like the same guy. He said he was with Bank of America. I didn't believe him. I asked him what his name was. I cannot remember what name he gave me, but it was an American name, which did not fit his foreign accent. Then I asked for a phone number. He gave me the number, then I told him that if they didn't stop calling me, that there is going to be a legal situation. I haven't heard from them since. The next day I tried to call the number, and it was someone's personal phone number. Back in February, after the money was taken from my brother, I contacted the Better Business Bureau. The case number is 3E521-BF06F-54498-BACFE-02EC2-8742A-8B. I received a letter from a Crystal Brown stating that my brother was going to get a full refund. A check was supposed to be sent, but there was never a check. I don't know what else to do. I feel horrible that my brother's money was taken without his consent, and it was my fault for getting him involved in this mess. Is there anything you can do to help?

Advantage America ripoff scam dishonest Winter Park Florida
I received a call from Lance B. Hanson, Gov ID 8R40072 from Advantage America. He explained a program to me regarding grants and that I was going to receive $12,500 minus the $49.95 process fee into my checking account. It would take 4-5 day to receive the money. In the mean time, in 15-30 days I would receive free coupons worth $500 to use at my free will. I had 10 days to use the free long distance or I would be charge $19.95 a month. The $49.95 was a lifetime fee and I would never be charge again for it. I decided I did not want this so called grant and on 1/31/06, I called the 866 number and spoke to a customer service representative named Jem. I told her I wanted to cancel my account. She told me no I didn't. I had to wait for my welcome letter, which I told her I already received. She told me that this was free money and after 6-8 weeks I would get a big package in the mail and then I would have to fill out paperwork to request grants up to $12,500. I still told her No and she would not cancel my account. After 25 minutes on the telephon telling, yelling and being just rude to her, she still did not cancel this account. She was so adament about explaining the program to me. She finally said thank you for calling have a nice day and hung up. Account not cancelled. I called back and spoke to Raymond Michael (Mike) and explained to him to cancel my account. He told me he would but I had to call back tomorrow to get the cancellation code. I asked to speak to a representative, but he said they were all taking calls. I left my name and telephone number, but to no avail. I asked for Crystal Brown who is the CEO, but she and her assistant Linda Davis is in Italy. Phillip Lake is the next in charge, but he did not return my telephone call. Still waiting. This company will not let you cancel your account with them. When you do get a change to cancel the account, you are past the 10 days of free trial period and they try to charge you. It is like the bank said, if the government is going to give you free money, they will without asking for your account number to your bank. Beware!! There is no grant money and if there is, you have to apply for it by their guidelines. L Northern Virginia, VirginiaU.S.A.

He gave me a phone number to call. I got my cell phone and called the number why I was still on the phone with him. I found it ver odd that there was no company named mentioned when the answering machine came on. I heard our customer service agents are busy with other clients. No information about the company or anything, just every 15 seconds our agents are busy with other customers. He then gives me his website. I can not pull up the website he gave me so I GOOGLE it.

Today I recieved a call on my cell phone from Advantage America. The man who called was named was John Fisher. He had a very thick accent and I had difficulty understanding him. He said I had qualified for a free government grant. I tried to ask why...and he just said that the government gives citizens who pay their taxes grant money each year...or something. He knew a suprising about of my personal information and said that he had aquired it from the government. He read me half of my bank account number, and then asked for the rest of it. He said that he needed it so that $100 could be deposited into my account by tomorrow, and then 2-3 days later they would withdraw $49.95 to make sure it was a valid account. He told me about some kind of $299 benefits plan, which I could choose to accept or refuse. Then soon I would get the full amount of the government grant deposited into my account. I was intrigued by the free money and so very naively gave him the info he asked for...but happened to be outside my bank at the time. Right after I did it, I felt tricked so went and changed my bank account...Thank God!!! Once I got home I found this site and am soooo glad I followed my instincts before they got any of my money!!

Advantage America grant ripoff Winter Park Florida
My husband got a call on his cell phone on a Saturday night, two days after Thanksgiving, from someone claiming to be from the U.S. government and saying we qualified for an $8,000 grant. I pleaded with my husband not to give out our account numbers and that if the government really wanted to give us a grant they would have contacted us by mail and would be willing to send us a check and not insist on getting our checking account information. Unfortunately, my husband gave them the information, but when it got to part where you answer recorded questions, he repeatedly answered no when it asked if they were authorized to debit money from our account. This of course prompted the original guy to keep cutting in and telling him he had to authorize a charge of $49.95 in order to get the $8,000 put in our account. The way it ended was my husband still said no to the authorization, and shortly after that, his cell phone battery died. We did not think much of it after that since he had said no. However, yesterday (Dec 9) I checked our account and sure enough, Advantage America had cashed themselves a check in the amount of $49.95. I called them immediately. What I heard was unbelievable. They said they had it recorded... of course I asked them to play it and much to my shock, it was not my husband's voice, but a woman's voice, stating that she was me, and it was Dec 3rd- my husband had talked to them a full week earlier. I told the customer service agent that was clearly not my voice and she agreed with me. However, even though they managed to debit my account, they can't seem to credit it. They told me they would send me paperwork which I had to fill out and send back in before I got my check. This is the 2nd time this has happened to me in the past year. In my opinion, they had one of their own employees make that recording. Good luck, I hope everybody gets their money back, and take it from a former bank employee, NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR ACCOUNT INFORMATION !!! Betsy Lynchburg, VirginiaU.S.A.

Advantage America grant ripoff Winter Park Florida
I received a call on 12/07/2005 from a man claiming he was from the Federal Goverment and that I have been approved for a Grant in the amount of $12,500. He told me about the fees, one for 49.95 and one for 299.95. This mans name was Justin Cooper and he told me that I would not be charged the fees because I was already approved for the grant. When I did not receive the money in 48hrs like promised I called the company back and asked them why I did not receive the money. I was told that I would be receiving a book on how to get a grant that cost $299.95 and that there was a processing fee of $29.95 and a membership fee of $19.95. I told him since the guy flat out lied to me on the phone I did not want this money taken out of my bank account. And he said since it was recorded there is nothing they can do about it and they do not offer refunds. I hung up called my bank and put a stop payment to Advantage America so they cannot take any money out of my account. When I called back several times later and asked to speak with a manager of thier company they were conviently busy. So I am going to file this report and see what I can do to sue the pants off of this company. Amanda Vancouver, WashingtonU.S.A.
