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 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

If there is an attorney interested in looking into this, there are several people ready to file suit.

This is not Grant Sampson's ex girlfriend.

AUTHOR: - ()

I have the written proof of all claims made as well as contact information of several others also scammed. The Hillsborough County Consumer Protection Agency, The Better Business Bureau, as well as two state agencies have been notified and possess documentation as well.

I have been told that as long as everything that I have said is true, I am welcome to post my experience with no repercussion. What I posted above is what happened to me. 

As a group we decided not to pursue in small claims court due to the time commitment involved, however, I have loads of information and documentation in my possession from many of your other "clients". If you'd like to hire a mediator or attorney and go to court, I'm all for it.

Do you know if I win, if interest compounds on the money you've owed me for all of these years? I really thought this was a chapter from the past. I cannot believe that you are brave enough (I'm not sure that this is the correct word) to open this tower of worms once again.

Old post that is fraudulent and a defamation of character

AUTHOR: Grant - (Brandon)

 My ex threatened this years ago and I want this lying post removed. I have no way of contacting her and this is defamation of character among other laws broken.
