I was in between jobs and seeking work and picked up a local ad magazine called Thrifty Nickle in a store in Atlanta I happened upon an ad stating I could recieve free money from private companies to help me with my bills and finances that I would not have to pay back (Grants) I called the ads number and was forwrded to a voice recording that requested my total info and a call back number the next day "TERRY SMITH" called me and explained thoroughly, this unbelievable process of filling out simple request forms to send to Philinthropic Organizations throughout the south and midwest and how i would simply recieve checks in the mail 30 days later! (it sounded too good to be true) all he required  was for me to male an appointment the same day and meet him at the above address (which later I discoverd was his MOTHERS Home!) that he apparently shares after filling out the neccessary single paper and authorizing him to process it he informed me that I needed to pay him a $40.00  processing  fee after asking why he stated for his (NON  EXSISTING) secretary/clerk  at which point I declined and was prepared to leave his office /bedroom /storeroom! at which time he stated that the $40.00 was refundable at any time after the 30 daysif I was not satisfied with his services at which time he also produces this business card that listed all of his business credentials.

the whole time I was there the three phones and the fax machine were going off like crazy!!! these all should have been "RED FLAGS" but he assured me that his office help had called in sick that day and he was very  busy some calls he would answer and some he simply pulled the plug out of the wall to stop the ringing!!he wrote me a reciept and indicated on it REFUNDABLE and took my $40.00 cash all the while saying this is the real deal and not a scam "what can i do with $40.00 in todays economy that really aint no Money" (but it was my Money!!)

he gave me a 3 week date to call him back, and when I did the number was disconnected!!

I breverse look-up the address and called the decatur address phone number reached his Mother and inquired as to his whereabouts and a good contact number she only took a message and hung up almost immediately TERRY SMITH contacted me from 404 254 2138 and accused me of HARRASSING his mother and threatend me with legal action I was blindsided and shocked that the same smooth talking Bald Headed African American that was "here to help others in need" was now some "n***a THUG TALKING S**T TO ME ON MY PHONE"!!!

yeah I was Bamboozeled out of $40.00 TERRY SMITH but I got your address!!! so does everyone who views this posting

so happy for rip off report

AUTHOR: knight - ()

thank you for the report on terry smith corporation. i am a single mother and i was having a hard time making ends meet, when this smooth talking bald guy presented himself to me and my co workers ,outside  on our breaks ,he was very nice and was holding some items a small box  that he was selling.he stated that he was retired military and also was apart of other programs that would help the community.i called him that day and to set up an appointment and asked if i could bring my nanny who was in need of financial help aswell,he agreed,

so we went to the office and also found that it was a home that he  shared with his mother.we sat and talked and it all seemed too good to be true so i started spreading the word to get how people felt and got a strange feeling at this point,myself,so my nannie and i found this report on rip off.thank you for this report because we hadnt given him money but we really started geting money together for this.

he insisted that we should each pay half and split the grant,and he would give us a deal.the grant was for $ 200,000 and the fee was $549.00.we also got a packet filled with forms.i asked him why i didnt have to do a business plan and he stated that if i wanted to do one,it would be extra for his office to prepare but i didnt need it,i asked if this was thru the goverment ,but he said that they werent affiliated.wow,thank god we didnt do this,thank you rip off report.
