Grantresearchguide.com Scam / Ripoff
Just wanted to give anyone a heads up who may be out there doing research on this company. You are charged $1.95 to get access to grant information. Little do you know that if you click on the small `terms` link at the bottom you will see that they charge 49.95/month. This company is internet based and from what I hear they will not give you an address. Furthermore the website goes through Domains by Proxy, INC, so doing a WHOIS lookup does not give you any legitimate contact info. I now see why they hide their identity, as I`m sure they get complaints all day long from people like me.
To make it worse, we had someone that sounded like they were at an overseas call center harassing us for 1 week trying to sell additional documents that they can send in the mail. It was a real horrible experience.
If you request a refund they basically tell you that you agreed to the terms even though it is in `very, very, fine print`. If you ask for a manager their support will tell you there isn`t one available and refer you to [email protected]. They tell you to put Attn: Tyler as the subject - Apparently Tyler Johnson is the guy who manages this whole thing (according to another forum).
From what I`ve read it is a lost cause trying to get your money back. I cancelled my account, but I have a feeling I`m stuck with paying the $50 (No response from Tyler). I imagine this company can get away with this since they do have it in there terms, but it is a very shady company.
If you are looking into signing up with grantresearchguide.com, don`t do it: DO NOT SIGN UP, IT IS A MAJOR RIP OFF!!
