You don't pay for grants, and even at that, you have to sign up for them to begin with.

Its a complete scam. I didnt have money at first, had her call back, she said she was from business solutions. One time fee of  $199, she said if I didnt recieve a grant I would get a refund. I had to sign and fax a form, the day the fax was sent my card was charged. When i tried to log in I was rejected. When i called I was told the fax didnt go through and I needed to send it again, even though I'd been charged.Very suspicious at this point i refused to resend the fax and asked for the promised refund. She straight out refused to refund and insists I need to sign and resend the fax. I fear if I do resend the fax it will authorize another payment. I havent spoken to anyone in months, phone just rings and rings. Its a scam, I got duped, dont pay!!!

Telemarketer
Some of you mentioned that their website if Plentyoffunds.com but I filled out an app at http://www.businessgrantsnow.com/index.htm  and the same Janice called me.  So when she asked for my card I told her I will call her later, to give myself time to research.  Glad I did, a genuine company will not have several websites and will not hide customer service phone number, which does not exist on this website.  I thought it was fishy that the website looked so simple, almos a child can do it.

Government Grant Scams
Although government grant scams have been around almost as long as the government itself, the majority of the sites being advertised today didn't exist before the November 2008 election.

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.

FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION WEBSITE      
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt134.shtm
EXCERPT
The FTC says following a few basic rules can keep consumers from losing money to these ?government grant? scams:
    Don?t give out your bank account information to anyone you don?t know. Scammers pressure people to divulge their bank account information so that they can steal the money in the account. Always keep your bank account information confidential. Don?t share it unless you are familiar with the company and know why the information is necessary.
    Don?t pay any money for a ?free? government grant. If you have to pay money to claim a ?free? government grant, it isn?t really free. A real government agency won?t ask you to pay a processing fee for a grant that you have already been awarded ? or to pay for a list of grant-making institutions. The names of agencies and foundations that award grants are available for free at any public library or on the Internet. The only official access point for all federal grant-making agencies is www.grants.gov.
    Look-alikes aren?t the real thing. Just because the caller says he?s from the ?Federal Grants Administration? doesn?t mean that he is. There is no such government agency. Take a moment to check the blue pages in your telephone directory to bear out your hunch ? or not.
    Phone numbers can deceive. Some con artists use Internet technology to disguise their area code in caller ID systems. Although it may look like they?re calling from Washington, DC, they could be calling from anywhere in the world.
    Take control of the calls you receive. If you want to reduce the number of telemarketing calls you receive, place your telephone number on the National Do Not Call Registry. To register online, visit www.donotcall.gov. To register by phone, call 1-888-382-1222 (TTY: 1-866-290-4236) from the phone number you wish to register.
    File a complaint with the FTC. If you think you may have been a victim of a government grant scam, file a complaint with the FTC online at www.ftc.gov, or call toll-free, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357); TTY: 1-866-653-4261. The FTC enters Internet, telemarketing, identity theft, and other fraud-related complaints into Consumer Sentinel, a secure online database available to hundreds of civil and criminal law enforcement agencies in the U.S. and abroad.

I received a call from this company after searching on line for grants.  Many other companies called me to.  This seemed like the only one that wasn't a scam.  I have been working with one of there employees, not Janis for several weeks.  I talked to her first and she took my credit card number. i got the busness plan and other forms with a list of places to send them yesterday in my email.  So far they seem to be doing everything that Janis said they would.  now i will be sending in my aplications.  I will let you know if it works

Just like youy I applied for a business grant. i received a call from Janice as well and she asked me to pay $199. However I didnt have the money at the time and told her I would call back at a later time.
I don't think it is a scam tho, but dont take my word for it. I will do some more research on Plenty of Funds before I pay.

The woman that I talked to said that her name is Janice Lang and the company name is Ploenty Of Funds. She asked me too send her $199.00 to write a business plan. I applied for a business loan online and Janice Lang call me 2 days after I applied.Please tell me that this was and is not a scam.
