grants.gov did it for me. screwed me over. Here I am a fulltime student thinking I'm going to get grant help. not so much.
I do not know what this service is & I have a charge on my credit card bill for it @ $39.99 US funds which is $45.77 canadian
These people are scammers. They charge 39.95 every month although most people initially requested for a brochure or c.d for a ONE TIME fee of 1.95. They cannot be trusted. Everyone NEEDS to file a complaint with FTC, because they are the only ones who can make steps into shutting them down! Then, after you MUST cancel your cards and get new accounts, so they no longer have your information to charge, and FINALLY file a dispute. You can ALL get your money if the charges were unauthorized. good luck.
I had the same expierence as Yelz. This is a scam. Never received the $ 1.95 worth of information about the grants I was interested but they sure had no problem charging an estimate total of over $50 in a two week period.
I was charged this amount also with that number but I was also charged $12.95 for Bonuscraigs. I called and got through to Bonuscraigs and they said it was for online security of fraud. The number I called to get both removed was 877 387 4279. Hope this helps.
I received 3 different transactions on my CC from this number. It belongs to http://www.incomefromhomekit.com/membersarea/index.php
I spoke to the a person called JC and he said my amount will be credited in 3-5 business days. I have amounts of $49.90, $9.95, $12.95, all charged by this company - Google Income club.
Is google really involved in this scam???
BEWARE THIS IS A SCAM, report as soon as you get any information.
The same thing happened to me.. got the disk, dosen't do anything, nothing comes up. I went to the support site and found out that the whole thing is a scam. Called my bank and they are giving me a new debit card. Guess you have to catch it quick so they can't get any more money out of your bank. Wish you all the best of luck.............
Call 1-877-402-2671, I called it today and they gave me a conf. number.
877-379-6527 This is the number I called to stop this malarky. If all else fails get a new card from the bank and tell them you lost it so that they'll cancel the old card number and issue you a new one. :)
Okay, but what about when you call and cancel after they charged your account and they still are taking you for a ride? My suggestion tell the Bank that you lost your card and for them to send you a new one. They will cancel the "lost" card and problem solved.
One of the grants.gov sites is the culprit to your problem.
This is that citizengrants.com. You must of clicked on an icon on their page. That's what happened to me. I didn't even see where it said that it was $39.95 if you didn't cancle withing the 3 day trial period. When I went in to cancel the trial period I couldn't find the number to call. When I finally did get the number I called and was told it was too late and I would be charged 39.95. I did cancel it anyway that day. They better not charge me again. You should report to the consumer advocacy agency or to the better business bureau. Something has to be done about this misleading advertising that is running rampid all over the net.
.READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS,THATS THE EXCUSE THEYLL COME AT YOU WITH TO NOT GIVE YOU YOUR MONEY BACK
Whoever this is took 1.95 out of my account and then a few days later took out 49.90. The bank put a hold on my debit card and eventually blocked it and are now sending me a new one. Im pissed!!! I tried calling these people and they said they didnt have an account under my name or number and wanted my card info! I just hung up after that! I had to file a police report and I am getting my money refunded from the bank.
I gave my credit card info for a business package for google income... for $1.95. This was to grant access to an online book with adsense tips. I was charged $49.90 from these f*cks a week later. I feel stupid for trusting these scammers with my info. My bank is putting in a dispute... there is also a pending charge of $9.95 that has not been posted. Canceled and reordered new card. These a***oles will still keep charging you.
Sucks a**. This is the cust. service number on bank statement. I also got 877 402 2671 from the pending charge.
ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE OR HAVE NOT CANCELLED YET!!! You also have to cancel the so called ONLINE PROTECTION PLAN that they have scammed you into , its seperate from the success system and you will be charged 9.95 a month for it unless you mention it when cancelling. I cancelled the success system and was refunded but then later charged for the protection plan. i told them i cancelled and they told me that it was seperate. so cover your as sses and make sure to cancel both!!
yes they're charging you for a seperate "protection plan" so that your info is protected. what a fkin joke. when they told me that i said protection from who, you? i was then referred to a supervisor. i didn't even have to talk to the guy other than saying i want a refund. he said hes refunding my money and cancelling my "protection plan" 2-3 days, i guess we'll see. i have already informed my credit union to cancel my debit card.
the 9.95 is their "protection plan" you have to cancel the kit and the protection plan seperately. i called and stayed on hold for an hour and a half. told them that id already cancelled the system and they still charged me. they say its for a seperate protection plan to protect my infromation. i said from who? you people? they got their supervisor and cancelled my plan and are supposed to be refunding my 9.95, even though they charged me 10.03.
you better make sure that the protection plan is also cancelled or you will be charged 9.95 a month as it is a seperate thing as was told to me. i too was able to cancell my account with no problem, but was later billed for the protection plan because i didn't specificaly cancel it also. good luck.
i too bought the eBay success kit for the shipping of $1.95 , later got a phone call from someone trying to get me to invest $1,000 dollars of course i told him no and ended the call. the next day i made a couple purchases and then pumped gas. my card was denied at the gas station. i immediately checked my bank account online and noticed that i was billed $40.27 for the eBay success kit!, I called the number (877-387-4244) and they refunded me, but only $39.95. i decided to let the 32 cents go. I now have a charge from yesterday for $10.03 for online services. with the number (877-379-6527) i called this number an have been on hold (due to the high volume of calls) for an hour and a half. the recording only says customer service but not who they are. i am trying to cancel my debit card but its sat. and the bank is closed.
hey i got an answer!! the person has informed me that i no longer am being charged for the kit but im now being charged $9.95 for a consumer protection kit? so that my info is protected. i told them i cancelled my account with them, why would i need account protection for an account i no longer have? they referred me to a supervisor. told the person i wanted a refund. he immediatly told me that i will get a $9.95 refund in 2-3 days. im hoping hes not just getting me off the phone.
What i dont understand is why they charged me , first $40.27 and now $10.03, then they refund $39.99 and $9.95. they are keeping 40 cents?? well i think that if they keep 40 cents from 10,0000 people they're making 4000 dollars.... yes , quite the scam. ill let you know if i get the refund.
got 7 calls from this phone # and was charged numerous times on my cc
i bought the ebay success cd for $1.95. Now for several months, my bank account keeps getting overdrawn for 9.95, 12.95 and 39.95. WTF????? I will be the local advocate with Channel 6 here in Boise, ID. I get no one on the phone who speaks good English, from the Phillipines it sounds like to me and when I tried to discuss UNauthorized automatic payments taken out of my bank account the man just hung up on me.
1-877-379-6527 18773796527 SCAM!!!! I was charged also!!! I will ask PAYPAL to STOP Accepting this charge!!! We all have PAYPAL and E-BAY in common!!!
I too, was charged 39.95 for something I did not order on or off line. Then I was charged again for 1.95, then again for 6.23. I have since closed this account. I too, will ask for a refund, since I never authorized this payment.
I never went to the website, unless my husband did. All I know is my account is bounced not sure why went to the bank requested a print out and found the number on the statement. Not sure what the hell was going on I called the number. Yeah, just like everybody else I was put on hold they never answered. I was charged 12.95 one day, and 39.95 another day. People should never be allowed to do these things to people. We all work hard for our money and don't appreciate it being stolen from us.
GRANTS.GOV - is a government website - THEY DO NOT SELL YOUR INFORMATION!
THEY ARE CORRECT - by law they are required to disclose these charges to you in the terms and conditions. When you process your order - YOU ARE AGREEING to those terms and conditions WHETHER YOU READ THEM OR NOT!
Just because you made a CHOICE not to read the T & C does not mean the charges were not authorized. YOU AGREED TO THEM! THEY ALSO KNOW MOST PEOPLE WILL NOT READ THEM AND TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE OF IT.
ALWAYS READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS - they are always located in a link a at the bottom of the home page - READ THEM FIRST - so you can make an INFORMED decision on whether to continue or not.
No I do not work for these scammers - but see hundreds of these and its all the same thing FAILURE TO READ THE INFO PROVIDED.
Government Grant Scams
The "free money" scam has been around almost as long as the human species.
It has more variations than a bulldog has wrinkles but you can count on one thing: the government (any government) does not simply give money away to individuals. Anyone who tells you differently has larceny in his heart.
If you give him your bank account number, he will soon have your funds in his pocket.
It does no good to list all of the names used by these bunko artists because a.) they change all the time and b.) every single free-money government-grant offer is a scam. Period.
FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION WEBSITE
ADVERTISEMENTS ? from the Federal Trade Commission website:
The appearance of ads in media outlets that you recognize - like your local newspaper or radio station - is no guarantee of the legitimacy of the company behind the ad.
you responded to an email without researching it first on the internet??
A quick search adding SCAM to your search criteria - would have prevented this from happening. I just did an "ebay success kit" search on google and one of the options they gave was SCAM
DID YOU READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FIRST? These charges are clearly disclosed in the terms and conditions - just because you did not read it does not mean they are unauthorized charges! If YOU PROCESSED YOUR ORDER WITHOUT READING THEM - you agreed to them..
Claiming ignorance is not an valid excuse for making a CHOICE NOT TO READ THE INFO PROVIDED
they have taken $39.95 out of my account 3 weeks straight(total is 119.85),,,i have sat on hold for 45 minutes... who are these people.
