I also agreed to have a cd sent through mail for only $1.98 for shipping. Nowhere did I see any agreement to pay $69.95 if I didn't cancel withing 7 days of agreeing to have a cd sent.

I signed up to have the cd mailed on February 24th. I received a phone call about a week later giving me instructions to go online and check out the programs while waiting for the disc to come. At no time was there any mention that I had only 7 days to check things out before I would be charged. There was even a portion of the phone call that was recorded for verification, and there was never any mention of that - That would have got my attention.

Today - March 11th, I checked my banking statement online and noticed a charge of $69.95 from Grant funding search that I did not authorize. I immediately called the number and got this line about only having 7 days from the day of agreement to have the disc sent to cancel. I told the woman on the phone I wanted a refund and she refused. I then asked to speak with a mananger, which the woman replied that there was no manager available and that the manager would just tell me the same thing. I insisted on speaking to someone other than her and she finally said someone would call me within the hour.

I went online to see if I could find some info about this company and was led to this website where there was already a report on here. The person that had already filed the report is apparently still fighting to get her money back.

If anyone has any info or has successfully received a refund of their money that was scammed, please file a report letting others know!

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!


Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.

According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.

If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.

Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!


Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.

And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.

Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.

If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.
