Complaint / review text:
The same as all the other complaints regarding this company... This guy with a indian accent told me i was eligible for a government grant, which coincidently i did apply for.
I am a full time college student and thought maybe i did get a grant of some kind. There was no mention whatsoever about anything coming out of my checking account.
They told me that the grant would be put in my account within a week. After a month went by i got $299.95 withdrawn from my account.
I went to my bank and raised a fit because i had no clue who advantage america was. The company that had initially contacted my was called first national government grant department.
The guy told me he worked for the federal government. My bank would not reverse the funds because i gave my info over the phone even though the lady at the bank called them personally.
They tried to get her account info too!!! They kept calling my house and they asked for more people in the houses bank accounts and i told them to not call here anymore and even put our number on the "do not call registery".
They actually told me that they would not stop calling me and i got angry and hung up. They still keep calling and harrassing me and my family!
I have contacted the fbi almost a week ago and explained everything to the lady who answered the call and she told me that someone would be in touch the next day. I still havent heard from the fbi regarding anything... I got another call today!!! I dont know what else to do... They will not stop calling!!! They are now getting verbally abusive on the phone and now its harrassment!!!
