Called as I was seeking government funding, design of website looked like a real government website. Called, spoke to Andrea she said I would be eligible for up to 600 government programs and qualify for young womens entrepreneurship grant etc. Said it would cost $699 for the package which included business plan booklet and list of eligible programs. She answered all my questions and said the have a team of researchers that go through your business plan and see which one your eligible for, afterwards she asked how would I like to pay for this…I was expecting like 20-40 dollars then she said $699. I was shocked, she stated i can write it off as a business expenses at the end of year. I told her i would call back, a few mins I called back still thinking this was legit (she gave me her call back number and ext) a receptionist answered and transferred me to her where i paid the $699. Then she said I would get an email with all the info. I waited 1 hour still no email. I called back this time the receptionist was so rude and asked if I had already paid for my service which i thought was weird, then she transferred me back to Andrea, she told me that their processing my order and I would get an the information by the end of the business day. I got off the phone and googled this company and learned there has been many rip off and scams. I called my credit card company they said to call andrea back and try to cancel, I called, and said I used the wrong credit credit and asked her to cancel and I would give her a new credit card then she placed me on hold several times and said she cant cancel it then on hold again and said that she would need the new credit card to offset the transaction and then cancel the other one, which was the dumbest thing i ever heard. I said no way I am not charged twice, at this point she was rude and offended and emphasized over and over agsin “so you dont wanna use this service?” In fear I said I do, but please reverse this transaction so I can give you the right visa card number. She put through the request suprisingly. Called the bank and found out the reversed the payment thankfully. I immeaditely canceled my card. And she called back mins later. I dont know how these people sleep at night scamming iike this
