“Got me up!”

Written on: 24/05/2015

Got this computer shop of mine in a low status and I did not have sufficient funds to keep it moving up. I tried my best looking for several agencies to loan but got no luck. But then, I came across UK Business Funding Centre and they directed me to the right path. I got the loan that I really need to keep my business. Thank you very much!… Read Full Review

I didn't like anything about their service as it didnt make common sense the answers she was giving were to true to be good the… Read Full Review

“TOTAL WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY”

Written on: 19/05/2015

Got caught, but when I tried to block my card I was told by my card company that it was not fraudulent or illegal as I had signed for a subscription and that they would be able to access my credit card account for the second payment. A VERY CLEVER use of a google search for 'small business grants' and certainly not worth paying anything for! The information they permit access to is outdated. They also use different names. DO NOT USE. If only they could be named and shamed. … Read Full Review

Enquired about it , got a phone call the next morning and I was very surprised at the amount available, then my mind processed the info and was waiting for the pocket punch, after saying my credit rating wouldn't affect my application it was then I sussed it wasn't as it seemed , they asked if I had any capital to put forward and asked for 2 payments of £189.

“Almost Fell into the trap”

Written on: 10/05/2015

Rang this company yesterday - got suspicious after the extension number left in their emails came up with 'an American voice telling me this extension was not available' warning bells started so I rang them directly - very nice conversation with the person I dealt with , but again as someone else commented when they ask for money up front then another amount later my gut said NO! Listen to your Guts on this one and don't fall into the trap… Read Full Review

“Very good with their pitch”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by tigeress63 (1 review written)

I spoke to a lady today who almost convinced me that i would get a grant and i could keep topping it up over the 12 months. I was so convinced that i was going to pay the £189 this Friday. I am so glad that i googled them first, my heart goes out to all them who have paid and been ripped off by this so called company. Can anyone tell me where you can get a government grant free of charge?… Read Full Review

These are good to build u up and promise the world, after a 30 min conversation on the phone, as soon as price was mentioned alarm bells started ringing, as soon as I questioned the charges of £189 the ladies attitude soon changed, stay away from thesea rouge traders, just a simple search in Google will tell you the truth about this company, dodge at all costs… Read Full Review

“Not a Government department offering UK Business Grants”

Written on: 08/04/2015 by Jasper455 (1 review written)

A friend purchased subscription to their directory. An email asking them to cancel has not been replied to. Look out for the fast talking girl called N... As these are business services do not seem to be covered by consumer laws so do remember to put a stop on payments from the same company which may include the monthly subscription for their newsletter. And do not login to the account if cancelling… Read Full Review

So I have just been tricked by this organisation and like others i lost £189.00.
Well I'm not prepared to sit and put it down to experience! I'm a single parent on tax credits trying to start my own business to become financially independent.
I cannot afford to lose £189 for something that is sold as exclusive and is actually the govt website list of funding.
I have sent the information to the Martin Lewis money saving expert site and will share it on face book. The more of us there are, the better chance we have of getting our money back.
Contact me if you want to join the revolution lol

Customer Wrote On 23-Mar-2015 It's a shame I couldn't pick abysmal the fact these people are trading is bizarre to me I paid £189 basically for a Google search. The lady I dealt with felt the need to constantly tell me her love of African and Jamaican people rather than explainin this ridiculous scheme. when I realised how stupid I'd been I called back only for the initial lady to not even bother answering or returning my calls the lady I did speak to was vile and had not only a lack of… Read Full Review

“ the information is free on the .GOV website”

Written on: 23/03/2015 by McCrackenyh153 (1 review written)

Had a chat with one of there staff it sounded great, bespoke just what I wanted some start up financial support specific to my location and business needs. I paid the money in the morning and was emailed the passwords after 5.30pm that day to enable login to see all the unique funding options for me. All they have is the generic stuff that's free on the government's website. Not at all what I was sold over the phone, I tried to obtain a refund but was refused. Do not go near them!! … Read Full Review

“Helpful information provided in an organised manner”

Written on: 07/03/2015 by smith468 (1 review written)

I always wanted to start my own business and lead my life in my own way. The first thing you have to think before planning for a business is that how you will manage the money. I was searching for an option to get funds from the UK government. I found them who provides information and tips about loans. They charge high, but its okay as they are the best in this field. They can show you thousands of ways while you can see none. My business is up and running with the aid of government fund thanks… Read Full Review

I have a pretty good experiences with them too. They are helpful and most importantly, they knows what they are doing. They are an expert in this field. Their success rates are damn too high. I highly recommend them to everyone.

I can say just the same as you! This company want your money but not provide anything for it. They said if we could not find any suitable financial help they refund our money. That was before I paid. Today I had a massage from them which include the Refund & Cancellation Policy:
`Due to the fact that our data can be copied much like software, this transaction is not refundable. Usual cancellation periods do not apply once the process has begun and you have accessed the online database. Fees are 100% refundable when you obtain government funding for your business AND provide us with details of your success story and advice to share with readers both on and off our site.

Kind Regards,

UK Business Funding Centre`

They show up some grant possibility that you could find even yourself with some hours surfing on the net. No more help. Looks professional but just an empty balloon. Be aware of this company.

I paid for this "service" back in 2013 and didn't get anywhere with help with funding back then. I am surprised to see they are still around. I have just reported it elsewhere, prefer to to give too many details at present but you could all try any of all of these: Trading Standards, Action Fraud, Crimestoppers, Get safe Online, The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

“Do not ever use this service”

Written on: 26/01/2015 by GavenO'Leary (1 review written)

I spoke to a lady and advised her of how my circumstances have changed and why I need a business grant. I can honestly say I cannot believe they have taken this money from me. I explained how my father had sadly passed away only 2 months ago and my siblings are taking over the company. She advised how much of a help this would be and how I would gain funding. There was no mention about the added payment and all the funding is absolutely useless. I have not got money to play with and also… Read Full Review
