Complaint / review text:
Back on Febuary 2006, i had recived in the mail a green piece of paper, the had said get $5,000.00 or more in grovernment grant money.
I called the number that lead me to the Mcfarland Group. The Mcfarland Group number is 866-247-0275. I called that number and they told me that in order for me to get the paper work filled out and everything that they would need to take out $289.00.
I did give them the savings account number, and they took out the money, about a week later or so I recived the package. I filled it out and sent it back to them.
I was told by the Mcfarland group that it will be 6-8 weeks before i will know anything. I was also told that if i do not qualify for the grant that I will get the $289.00 back.
Well then my husband had called them back because it had been about 6-8 weeks, and this was in May I belive, and they told him that you should hear something the first part of June.
June rolls around and NOTHING! Then we had called the 866-247-0275 number, and it said that you have enterd a number that cannot be reached from you calling destination.
I called our bank Meridian Trust, and they told me that they have another number to call. I tried calling that number and the same thing as the other number.
I closed out the account, and got a different account number. I have sure learn that i was ripped off and now i'm not sure if I will get our money back or not.
I do hope that justice will be served on the Mcfarland Group who has ripped everyone else off too.
