STAY AWAY FROM -> CANADIAN BUSINESS GRANTS CENTRE - 18773833987PLEASE SHARE AND SUPPORT MECanadian Business Grants is a SCAM!! - 2019I am a recent victim of their sales tactics. It is not worth the money.All these reviews are correct. Jan 2019.A large multimedia media awareness will be created. This includes informing the better business bureau.Promised many call backs and never once received one. I had to persistently call, to get any answers or progress.Making my payment Jan 9 2019, finally, receiving my PDF file Feb 7 2019. OMG !!!Anyone can Google Canadian Business Finance directory for this information and lay it out in a PDF.Sending me data for areas that are not related to my business....So why did they require detailed information of my plan for ? ...obviously no one truly read it, with intent to provide me with useful information.The convoluted methods and direct cat fishing is wrong ! You people should be ashamed.After collecting my payment, never once did I experience a professional conversation with these clowns.Just dead cold responses and lies to my questions.After you have paid, you will receive a large PDF with your proof of payment invoice. This PDF will contain the same information that you wait for.Its a large list of finance type government programs. When you finally get your completed results, its a refined list of the large PDF they initially sent.So I did try contacting some of the programs and some are real and some do not exist any more. Some numbers just lead to general offices.Asking the representative at Canadian Business Centre questions like "Are these funding programs in direct contact with you ?" ... ie Canadian Business Centre."Have the hosts of the programs been informed of my start up? ....Do they know who I am ?"Each time I am being told yes ...yes ...yes. When I contacted these programs, they were oblivious and had never even heard of this business centre.I could have forgotten about this, if it was a $50 or even a $100 experience. But they suckered me for $699.Selling you the fact that the cost if fully 100% deductible,assuring you that they are connected to many government programs and all you need to provide if your personal and banking information.In the end all the data I provided was redundant. They could have constructed the same results, by me providing a simple email with a few lines, stating my areas of interest.Or sent the PDF and let me pick from the list ...for $20 ...NOT $699!Then continued to chat with me for further interest. But instead I waited a long time for a sub par document,that contains about 20% of usable information. Some details of available programs related to your business topics and that offices contact information.....that all you get.Here hoping I get something back for this.I feel even worse for sending them detailed copies of my business plan. Now I can not take it back.Who knows what they will do with that information that they are collecting.I no further ahead ! Thank you for nothing !I am open to share any information that I have collected to these funding programs.Stay far away !

I filed up the forms online and they called me the same morning asking for the $699 in order to start the process... what saved me from paying? Usually, the government doesn't charge people on the spot..over the phone... and so in rush for anything. That's why a backed off and decided to look up for reviews! Thanks to everyone who posted.

Canadian Grants Business Center - Horrible!

So not only did I not get a grant or a loan. I'm out that 699 that I paid for these people to help me. Putting my business my new business even more into debt. I sent them my business plan and I haven't heard back from them for 3 months when I called to complain and ask for a refund they threaten me the girl's name is Andrea. Basically told me there's nothing I can do about it. I really wish I'd read the reviews first. I guess it sounded like a government type name so it tricked me into thinking it was legit. Do not give these people your money and if anybody knows of a way I could get my money back please do tell me because every penny counts and I certainly am no more closer to getting any kind of loan or Grant.

Canadian Grants Business Center - I felt they are fake

I read their message on google to get grant. I left my email to contact they called me next day and lady was nice to talk but she told me to pay $699 and will be refunded if didn’t get grant within 90 days So I asked her to give me her website to make sure if they are really in business, because I thought it’s a fraud. She called me again yesterday then I told her I will let her know once I am done with their information So I read all these reviews and thanks to god and to reviewers who saved me Clapping

Canadian Grants Business Center in Calgary, Alberta - What a scam!!!!!!

After contacting Canadian Financial Publishing I was told that we were eligible for government funding for our company. For $699 I could get the file sent to me and I would just have to complete a business plan and send it to them and they would distribute it to the appropriate government agencies. My fault that I did more digging later rather than sooner. I contacted the lady I was dealing with, Andrea and 1-877-6523-6992 and told I could not get a refund without providing them with the business plan and getting denied 3 times by government agencies.

I paid them for their assistance with getting loans and grants after them telling me if i do not receive funds then i will be reimbursed.

I requested info and help for the grants that would be available to me onky to get info for loands and one grant when i know i meet the qualifications for at least another 4 and now it seems they are screening my calls. They will pick up but not actually answer

Canadian Grants Business Center - Total Scam!!

Contacted them in february 2019, they made me believe they were connected to the government and had acess to alot more progams than I could find on my own. They "helped" me with my business plan (which I could of found more and better info online, they are not the professionals they claim to be), then I waited months for the "research" team to get back to me, only to receive a list of the programs that I had already seen on google. I called them to ask what further they would do on my behalf, and that was it. $699 and months of waiting for a list that is available to anyone online. Total and complete scam, they should be assamed for taking money from people just trying to get started and grow their business.

THANKS A LOT FOR POSTING I'm in the process of starting a company, I filled in one of their application forms and was called by them immediately. I was told to pay the $695.00 for a package they were sending that day....sounded fishy They said their MasterCard machines were down so i'd have to do an e-transfer.

.... sounded even more fishy.

So i went online to check their reviews and found this place... THANKS ALOT

No mistake, They rip off everyone. I went to RBC Visa Security and they took off the extra money that theses jerks took from my card.

RBC Visa Security is now chasing them down for fraud.

I also went to the RCMP and BBB. Don't wait and contact your Credit card Security and report it.
