Lion's Share Local - Joe Zarate Completely Ruined My Website Los Angeles Internet - California
I was first contacted by Lion's Share Local about 3 months ago. The owner, named Joe offered to sell me exclusive leads for our Atlanta based business. As an extra incentive, he also freely offered to optimize my eisting website at no cost if I agreed to purchase leads off of him. I foolishly agreed to this.   Well long story short, this company tried to sell me bogus leads. And unbeknownst to them I am a member of my local contractors association and was talking to my buddy who also is in the same specialty area as I am. Here he too was buying exclusive leads from this company in California called Lion's Share Local. Since we were both located in Atlanta it was a very big coincidence.   Come to find out these leads were being sold to at least 2 or 3 other companies in Atlanta and were being marketed as exclusive. When I confronted them about it my website which I had foolishly given them access to suddenly was taken offline and while I can't prove it was Lion's Share Local it is definitely a strange coincidence.   Buyer beware if this company tried to sell you exclusive leads, they probably aren't exclusive at all. Lesson learned the hard way.

Lion's Gate Consulting ripoff New York Internet
Back in July, I called Lion's Gate Consulting to get the guaranteed grant and I paid the 299.99. However, I never got the paper work I was supposed to get to get the grants I qualified for. I have been robbed of basically 300.00 dollars. Can anyone help? Can anyone stop these thieves? I hope so. Please contact me. I am furious. Lori Longview, TexasU.S.A.

Lion's Gate Consulting misleading liars Montreal Quebec
very shady company that, when i showed up to their adress, not only outright lied about their location, was secretive. was forced to call police after a failed attempt at finding legit work, which a 'General Manager' with initials MR gave me: he gave me AN INTERVIEW at lion's gate. no *&*&?! How about a blonde wife and children! Instead, I got a doorman who said there's no office. Repeated calls to their office only revealed threats to me. no adresses listed on website. refuse to give any real information regarding where their office is. One guy said Montreal in error, only way i know. They thought I was harassing them. Instead am genuinely interested in their program and a job, and they gave ME a scare. Emil ---, New YorkU.S.A.

Lion's Gate Consulting Urgent Gram Grant Scam New York? Internet
As a result of of completing online surveys, my wife and I received a little green card in our mail box!. It stated roughly that we were elegible for up to $5000 in government grants and gave a TOLL free number for us to call.It seemed a legitimate offer so my wife called the number provided. During a fairly lengthy conversation she was advised, by respectible sounding, mature lady, that most people were eligible for fairly substantial grants they were unaware of and that her company would do the groundwork for a nominal fee to cover paralegal expenses etc. As a result of the conversation my wife expressed a desire to pursue this further. She was told that the fee of $300 was required in advance, but within a couple of months we were guaranteed to recoup a minimumn of several thousand dollars! To cut a long story short at the beginning of August as funds were a littel short we contacted the company to cancel the subscription. The gentlemman we spoke with this time advised that a minimum of 72 hours notice was required to cancel and that the funds would be withdrawn from out bank account the next day!. We immediately called the bank and told them to refuse to honour anything from Lions GAte COnsulting. End fo story!...NOT. Yesterday, nearly three weeks after the cancellation Lions gate tried to acces the bank account and withdraw the $299.97. We were lucky, an alert bank worker recalled the name and gave us a call, we went straight to the bank and filled in the required paperwork to stop them accessing the account. Please be aware, These people arent offering a service, ....well they are, to clear your account of your hard earned money. LIONS GATE CONSULTING out to steal your cash!

Lion's Gate Consulting DON'T FALL FOR THIS! Ripoff New York New York
My best friend called me up one day and told me that he had recieved a card in the mail stating that he was prequalified for a government grant of up to $5,000. He told me he had called the company number and spoke to a woman that said that he just had to pay a fee of $299.99 and then they would do all the work for him and send him the grant money for school. She also told him that if he did NOT recieve the full $5,000 he would be refunded his money. Naturally I said, um that's a big time fraud! His response was that he had checked with the school and they told him that they had heard of the company and that there were lots of private company's that do this for students and that it was legit. So I believed him. He did not have the money to send them so I loaned him $120 and he asked his Uncle, who works for the Tennesee State Bureau of Investigation, for the rest. TO this he responded, That sounds like a fraud and I wont give you the money until you do some more research. I googled them for him and came up with their website, lionsgateconsulting.com which looks legit but makes no mention of how much money or even how to get the package they are supposed to send you. AND there is no contact information... when you click that link it allows you to send them an email to an undisclosed email address. Earlier today I was again online looking for information on Grants and read an article (businessweek.com/smallbiz/0001/sa000111.htm) that says you can NOT get free money to start a business which reminded me of this Lion's gate company and upon looking them up again the only other information I have found is the reports on this site. I have called my friend and let him know this is fake and to check this site... Thanks to these reports I have saved myself $120! ANY TIME you get something that says you have to pay for a government grant it's fake because you don't spend a dime unless you hire someone to write the grant proposal for you!

He then informed me,it's for my own saftey they don't store the approval info,I would then have to reapply.That's when I knew it was a scam. So, I got online and typed the business name into my trustye Google search engine,and low and behold the first sit on the list declared it a fraud.Which led me here. Do you believe this guy actually had the temerity to tell me the company was registered with the federal trade commission?Well guess what I checked the official site,and they are registered,as a fraud(under investigation).What is this world coming to.

He said miss you have been APPROVED and your applying for all 5 assistance I said yes, he said you've been APPROVED and he will like to get more information from me because the fee is $299.99. I said if a grant is free from the government, why do I have to pay? He said paying for his services for paralegals to speed up process to be sent to the government. I said I dont think it should be a fee if it suppose to be a free grant from the government, and there is NO statement on the postcard stating a fee. So he connected me with someone else, I gave more information, he told me that paper work will be sent to me in 5 to 10 bus. days.

After receiving an urgent gram in the mail from Lion's Gate Consulting stating that I could receive at least $5000 in free grant money for my college education within 6 months, with only a 30 minute approval program process. Like any young, struggling, full-time college student I called to inquire. After answering a series of question and giving the consultant all of my vaulable, personal information I was given a conformation number and sent a questionnaire package. I received, completed the package, and returned it and Lion's Gate took nearly $300 from my checking account. I never received any grant money or grant paperwork from anyone. I called and called, leaving message after message nearly everyday for about the last month or so and no one has yet to return any of my calls. I even tried emailing them through the website and I was sent an error message back stating recipient unknown. I have since then contacted Don Griffin @ Action 9. I emailed him with my story and I have all of my paperwork and dates/times I tried to contact Lion's Gate and I have even printed out a list of rip off reports to prove my case and show that I am not the only one.

Lion's Gate Consulting ripoff 300.00 with claims of grants New York City New York
I got this post card in the mail the other day that said I might be eligible for a goverment grant for 5000.00. I made sure to read the whole thing front and back looking for any small print that said we had to pay for anything. Nothing was found. All it said was to call this number, and within 30 minutes I could be approved. In bold letters it said call for FREE applacation. When I called I filled out a VERY LONG applacation and was on hold for a LONG time before the woman on the phone finally came back and said I was approved for a minimum of 5000.00. I thought oh wonderful, i could really use the money. She put me on hold again and when she came back she asked if I had a banking account. I said yes and tried to ask her why she needed that information. She cut me off and went on this big spell about how i was going to get this 5000.00, and it was gurenteed, and the only thing she needed was a one time fee of 299.99. Well at this point I knew something was up. I kept the woman on the phone for about 10 minutes telling her i was looking for my check book. When I got back on the phone I told her that I was sorry but I didnt have the money right now. I told her that since I was going to be getting a check in the mail, I told her to take the 299.99 out of the money I was going to get and just send me the balance. She promptly hung up on me! So everyone just be careful of people out there and the supposed grats they can give you for that one time fee.. Grants are supposed to be free. and the information that comes with them are free too.

Lion's Gate Financial Took money on false pretenses, promised a grant for money. ripoff New York New York
My name is Jeremy , I'm 37 years old, I have a rage disorder, and am bi-polar. I have some learning disabilities. I have a caregiver who is typing this report for me. Her name is B. Dawn. She is 65 years old. Last December 2006, I received a postcard from Lion's Gate Financial telling me to call for informaton on receiving a grant. I have been wanting to move to California near my dad, and to expand a small craft business that my caregiver had started for me and her to try and get extra money. My hope was to get enough to buy a house that I'd be able to live in and maybe have another caregiver when Dawn dies. To have the accommodations for that person. Also to be able to get out from under the welfare system. To expand the business that it would enable me to be self-sufficient. I called the number they gave. They gave me hope that I'd pay a fee of $149.99 in two installments and be able to get a grant, not that I'd only get the papers to fill out and not hear from them again. My caregiver called their number to find out when we would hear from them. They told her that they hadn't processed my application yet and wouldn't hear anything from them until April. Well, April has come and gone, tomorrow will be May 1st and I've not heard from them at all. Not even sorry, stupid you loose. All I'd like to do is blow them up, and if I could I would. I had good intentions, and thought I'd be helped, but now I have nothing. How can I tell who is reputable and who isn't ? Who will help me now. Is all I get is zero? No way to get my money back, or be able to find someone who would be willing to help me. I hope there will be a trial. I'd be willing to tell my story, if not me my caregiver will speak on my behalf. Tell me what's next. What can be done? I need to do something, not just sit around and feel sorry for myself. Thanks for reading my report, I hope it will help put these people where they belong.

Lion's Gate Consulting ripoff, take your money WITHOUT your permission, pure THEFT! New York New York
Called to check out their advertised services but decided to decline using their service when the supervisor became quite rude and wanted to charge more than twice their advertised price. I told them specifically to cancel this, NOT to proceed, that I would be in contact with them again later IF and when I decided to use their service. Much to my surprise when I opened my bank statement that had gone ahead and withdrawn funds from this account WITHOUT my permission. They refuse to respond to emails, are very rude on the telephone, IF you can get through, and even hung up on me. Therefore, complaints have been filed with the Better Business Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission, the state Attorney General's office of New York and with Rip-off.com.

I was transferred very unprofessionally, to speak with other people that actually sounded like the same person. I then read some similar situations on this site, and I called my bank. I had set up the withdraw for 3.17.06 for the amt. of $299.97- but it had been taken just that fast. WITHIN MINUTES!!!! AVOID THIS COMPANY!!!!

The first piece of mail I get is a letter stating: here is your credit card. $6500 to order whatever you want in our catalog and bla bla bla. First, I said to myself that I did not order this card and read it very carefully. I looked for a number to call this outfit; but all I see is the activation number. I said this is total bull. Good thing I did not activate the card. That was Case no. 1. Now, today, I get a postcard from Lion's Gate Consulting saying that I can get a minimum of $5,000 for a business, education, disaster, home renovation. This is a grant that does not have to be repaid. All you have to do is send in the $299.00 and if you do not get the minimum of $5,000 we will refund you your money. So, for two days in a row nothing but garbage. These companies should be dealt with in a way where they will never be allowed to do a thing like this again. I am sure there are loads of others; but we have to be well aware of what we see in our mail and don't jump to any conclusions until we find out if this is a fraud and a scam.

So, I waited about a few weeks because they told me once they recieved the money which was $299.94 dollars they would send me a book to fill out. I did however get the book, but after filing out the book, I haven't heard anything else from them. I feel they riped me off and I'm very up-set about it because I feel it is fradulent. I just want my grant money or give me my money back. Lion's gate spokes person tlod me that if I did not qualify for the whole 5,000 they would give me my $299.94 dollars back along with the money that I do qualify for. I still have not recieved this money yet and it's been 3 months now. Please do something about this. Isis Glendale, ArizonaU.S.A.

Lion's Gate Consulting This company got 299.95 out of me. They need to found, stopped and made to pay everyone's money back. Ripoff New York New York
It was around Christmas time when I got this yellow postcard ine the. I called and jumped on it because I needed some money for the Holidays and to pay some bills. I called and gave them my information. They took the 299.99 from my account. I got worried when I did not receive the package so I called and the man I talked to me act like everything was funny. It did not dawn on then that this was a scam until yesterday when I called and a recording came on saying they were not taking new applicants and the existing customers had to call customer service. There was not a number on the recording that I could call. This company or People needs to be found and suited to give all the money back to all they ripped. Felicia Saginaw, MichiganU.S.A.

Mystery Marketing. Insurance Premium Financing, Inc. Scamming people with fake mystery shopper jobs and no-good checks Ottawa Ontario Canada
I got a letter with a check in the amount of $3,594.00 from mystery Marketing. The check was drawn on Eastern Bank on Lynn, MA and the company name on the check is Insurance Premium Financing, Inc. The letter states that I should keep $150. as pay for shopping; spend $300 at Walmart, Macy's, Target, etc.; use $144 for Western Union fees; wire them $3000 to test the employees at Western Union. The letter promised future assignments if I successfully complete the assignment. The letter was mailed from Canada. The address on the letterhead is in Sioux Falls, SD. The check is drawn on an account in Lynn, MA. The phone numbers are Canadian area codes. They claim in the letterhead to be a member of American Survey Research Organizations. I emailed this group and they said it is a scam; they are not members. I called Eastern Bank. They said Insurance Premium Financing is thier customer but that there was not sufficient funds to cover the check. I told the bank of my concern of a scam and that they may be sued if they didn't look into it after they were made aware of the probability that people could lose thousands. They asked me to fax them copies of the letter and check. I did. I called the Canadian phone number and it sounded like a boiler room operation with a lot of voices in the background, The man on the phone had an answer for every one of the 30 or so questions I asked him, though few of his answers made any sense. People need to be warned. Flo Cape Cod, MassachusettsU.S.A.
