Success Advocates. Formerly My Funding Resources. Has the same owners, management, and programs. they changed there name and phone number because they had been exposed as a scam and wanted to be able to re-start with a clean slate.

Success Advocates claims to be a grant coaching and research company. The product they offer are nothing more than sweepstakes, and grants that dont exist.

Before you decide to work with this company really think about who they are and what they offer. Grants are obtainable, completely free and you dont need help to get them. Always check before you invest.

Would Any Here Of Those Who Endorsed Success Advocates Be Willing To Speak With Me On The Phone?

AUTHOR: Soul Purpose Brilliance - (United States of America)

I am considering hiring Success Advocates.  I have seen mixed reviews for all of the reasons stated in this report.  It would be very helpful for me if I could have a phone conversation with someone who has used their services and have been satisfied.  Please let me know if anyone would be willing to have a conversation.

Thank you,

New Clients first 8 weeks

AUTHOR: Deborah C. - (USA)

Doing the Happy dance!

I wish to express my gratitude to a company that helped me succeed in receiving grants that I may not have gotten on my own. Grant writers are full of wisdom and coaching was superb!

The qualifier that got me recommended was awesome! Very caring and knowledgeable. The Directors are fantastic!

I live on a 70 acres of pasture farm land and we are re- building our family farm. The grants we are receiving are life saving. The grants took a little longer than I expected, but Finally it's here! Thank goodness!!

Thank you!

Google BBB and 20 20 , then check out Rip off report

AUTHOR: Claudia - (USA)

Please listen carefully. After viewing the post of such negativity about a company I did business with, It really made me mad! Success Advocates funding resources department assisted me in obtaining grants just last year.

Just two days ago, I had one of my bingo friends call me to tell me that the company I did business with on a rip off report complaints board, after checking further into it, I realized who the scams actually are.

Its not Success Advocates Funding resource department, Nope! It's yours Truly, The BBB and the rip off report them selves who are the scams.

Did you know that you MUST opt into a membership program to be kept off the rip off report " Bad News" list? and did you know that the BBB are only grading A's to those who pay a membership fee?

This is the biggest scam by far folks! If this Grant assistance departments were a scam, merchant accounts would not let them process Credit card info, receive payments for service or use attorney's, grant writers or even client services for that matter. They would have been shut down long ago!

Come on people, we are much smarter than this. So to prove my point I have taken some pretty well defined measures to ensure that what I'm saying is truthful. If this complaint or rebuttaldoesn't make it on this site, I will not be amazed. So I have taken appropriate measure to make sure that it is well documented that I posted this on to Rip Off Report. Lets see if they contact me. I have found a way to copy this onto word for press release if this does not make the complaints board. FYI, Rip Off report has tried to make it awfully difficult to save a copy to your computer for documentation purposes. I wonder why?

Best Regards,

Success Advocates My Funding Resource Grants Department

AUTHOR: Walter R - (USA)

Hi my name is Walter R, I'm from Massachusetts. I'm a 67 year old retiree with the Military. I retired from my 29 year career as an electrical engineer 9 months ago, after being diagnosed with chronic illnesses, and kidney failure. I was unable to work. After a while Bills were piling up, my wife and I were considering bankruptcy, and we were in dire financial straights.

The company in question ( Success advocates/my funding Resources) was more than able to help my wife and I with grants we were told that we could receive.

Being an engineer, I was skeptical I'll admit, we had reservations at first, because the fee was very substantial, and I was uncertain as to how we were going to come up with the fee at all.

I will say, we were not disappointed at all and we received our grant money. This changed our lives and we are getting back to normal.

Our home is being repaired, we were able to pay off debt and our medical expenses are not so heavy. The coaching was phenomenal.

The whole company worked diligently and we had success with Success Advocates Funding resource.

On behalf of our family, we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Grants are real and so was your services. We will recommend grants to anyone, especially this company.

So my question to the author of the complaint on this page, if grants are not real, then how can they be obtainable for free if they do not exist? That seems to be a bit of an oxymoron. I think the real question is, are you real?

On behalf on our family, thank you Success Advocates in helping us obtain grants.

Walter R.

Abington, Massachusetts

just garbabe folks, don't believe what you read

AUTHOR: Claudia - (USA)

laughing, i found this interesting. i have been a consumer of this company in the past about 6 months ago and found help looking for grants and a solutions to some of my situations and needs. although it maybe true that companies change their names, the fact remains that this company is not a scam. for those of you out there looking for quality help, this company has been professional and upstanding as far as i'm concerned. the only reason i'm writing this is for those of you who buy into the garbage and believe everything you read or will never take the steps and measures to change your situation. as a small business owner myself, i have found that most complaints are without a doubt initiated by disgruntled employees and other companies who are in competition. this is very sad to see and I hope all of you looking for a unique company with skill to benefit you will read between the lines. i have had the opportunity to work with a wonderful coach from funding resource success advocates and the client service department was truly an asset with my success in receiving grants. i could not have done this without them. thanks funding resource- success advocates.

AUTHOR: Erik - (United States of America)

The problem with people now days. Is that all they think about is what they are going to lose! Not gain!!!! Nobody wants to help their situation... which is sad. The chances of someone getting a Grant on their own is 1 to 1,000,000,000!

People don't realize that there are a lot of companies out there that have a much better reputation with grant writers as well as the organizations that are granting this money!so chances are they are not a scam. You just have no desire to help you situation. With these companies there are a lot of full proof securities that are taken care of so that it is impossible to be scammed. I got a Grant from a business similar and it does work. Maybe you didn't allow it to work for you but don't ruin it for others. This money is being granted from the government and national organizations to help our economy. Look it up! duh!
