  • I was approached just 1 week ago, by phone. Some statements were made in the effect that I stand a great chance of qualifying for a grant. I answered lots of questions and they said if they did not call back within 48 hours, that is a great sign. A full weekend later, they call me and state how great it is that I qualify. She went on to really sell this to me. I was really hyped as I really need the help to survive and succeed this 21st century business. I can't tell you how pleased I was to hear them say 'believe it or not we have you lined up for a grant for twice the money they talked about the very week before. I was in heaven, it was like the lord broke open his book of grace and poured it on me. The gal sounded very convincing, but something told me to hold off. I too cannot find much about this company, but you all have helped me to not get too excited about the prospect. Although I have not taken the leap, I do understand that grant writing is a grammatical and literary art demanding a lot of patience. I just don't like to be lead on and have nothing to base an opinion on for the sake of caution. After reading the contract they wanted me to sign and send back right away, I decided that no matter the risk vs. reward, doing business with an organization that carries an 'F' ranking with the Better Business Bureau is one to stay away from. I have found that the easiest opportunities are usually the hardest ones to get out of.

  • Unfortunately, because of the limited history of this company on the internet, this does at least on the surface appear to be some form of scam. I took a look at the state of Nevada's website, and possibly the Attorney General's office, specifically the Department of Consumer Protection, may be able to guide you or assist you in getting your money back.
