Tampa Sports and Social Club took money from me and from several others that I have spoken with personally, for sports leagues which do not exist. They do not have an active business license, and although they advertise that they have 10,500 members, they are not able to field even one team that I know of.
Mr Sampson, who runs this fraudulent organization will give one excuse after another as to why he cannot get a team together. And actually, when you sign the contract, it states out right that the season may never begin and you take that risk...read it! It is unbelievable how this continues to go on. I have spoken with people who paid for sports leagues over three years ago, and they are still waiting.
Mr Sampson was recently arrested in Hillsborough County, Florida for theft. He has also had some run ins with the law in Miami, where he once claimed that he successfully ran the Miami Sports and Social Club for many years. This is not true, and he recently changed that tidbit of misinformation on his website. He now claims that he formed and ran the Orlando Sports and Social Club for many years, which is also not true. He has boasted that he runs the Las Vegas Sports and Social Club, which is also untrue. It seems that even he cannot keep his story straight.
If you have been a victim of Mr Grant Sampson, through the Tampa Sports and Social Club, The Greater Brandon Business Group, Sampson Solutions, or the newest scam, The Tampa Wellness Program, please report your experience to the Better Business Bureau, The Hillsborough County Consumer Protection Agency, the Florida Attorney General's Office, and the news at http://www2.tbo.com/static/wfla/8-on-your-side/.
If there is an attorney interested in looking into this, there are several people ready to file suit.
