“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

I hardly ever write reviews but today I am writing this review to show my gratitude towards those who have already written their reviews and have saved me from this. I thank you all as I too was about to pay this organisation but when the guy on the phone at the end of the conversation straight away wanted my details, luckily I did not have enough money in my account and told him that I will borrow from my partner and call back tomorrow. Fortunately while surfing the net, I though I might as… Read Full Review

“Beware of this company!!!!!!!”

Written on: 17/01/2015 by Leehaynes (1 review written)

I contacted these people for help. Having given my details and address to the person on the phone, she told me that there was programmes available on their database that could help me. (60 in fact) I then paid my fee of £189 (which they say you get a full refund if you get funding! Which they know that you will not!!) and then had access to there so called database??! Nothing on there is what I would call helpful to any body!! I'm currently trying to get my business off the ground and I… Read Full Review

“Absolute Jokers”

Written on: 15/01/2015 by 148Drake (1 review written)

Fuming, after speaking to a woman on the phone, i originally thought she was very nice and very helpful. She again like others stated say you pay £189 for the log in and password, to which you have a month to apply for grants to see if your eligible. After 30 days another £189 will come out of the account, that gives you an extra 11 months to keep re applying for funding and grants for your company. So although i was after something small like £3000 she said i may be eligible for alot more… Read Full Review

Thank you all for the reviews. After speaking to a women that is on linked in , I was a bit miffed, she spoke very fast, asked me if I understood a few times, then dropped a sum of £189 to access the web site to apply for a loan/grant, this was a brief explanation, and carried on asking for my address, business telephone number, mobile number and email which she already had! When I said I didn't have the money for it right now she got angry at me… Read Full Review

“Grants are available BUT Not through...”

Written on: 19/12/2014 by Harding1971 (1 review written)

Grants are available BUT Not through www.ukbusinessgrants.org!!! They are no help. None of the grants listed as granted had anything to do with www.ukbusinessgrants.org. They take money up front and move on to the next call. I cannot believe the government who are the main source of grants do not come down on them. It is hard enough to get on without paying £169 up front for information that is in the public domain… Read Full Review

“Hilariously (almost insultingly) ridiculous!! ”

Written on: 27/11/2014 by reviewhello12345 (1 review written)

I can't wait for my call back now after reading the reviews! This woman (who only gave me her name at the end of the call when asked) who has clearly zero sales experience called me as I was about to go into a meeting so: 1) really bad timing 2) told me I had over 1 million grants available - how insulting is that? If there were 1 million doesn't she think I would have the commercial acumen to find them myself?? 3) Told me the bank will say no - incorrect, its under review by the bank and… Read Full Review

I just got off the phone to a woman, who is going to call me back on Monday morning, after reading these reviews, i am going to thoroughly enjoy having a go at her over the phone. Hate people who take money for nothing.

“Something didn't quite add up!!”

Written on: 10/09/2014

I looked online and this company appeared. A very quick talking lady called me and explained I was entitled to lots of grants and low/no interest loans. She asked for my card details to take £189 today and £189 in 6 months. I said I'd call back (as this didn't seem right). I was going to be sent a password once I'd paid so I could view what was available! What made the alarm bells ring was the e-mail that she sent, to cover the points she said on the phone, was from the e-mail address ending… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/11/2014

i had a similar situation. i was nearly convinced, had my credit card in hand, when she said that they would pay me back the £378 once i received the grant. i asked her how that worked. . . that surely they can't be very successful or they would b paying back all their income. What sort of a business plan is that . . . so i said i would call her back, i needed to think about it. then her dulcit tone changed. she became edgy. didn't want me to cut off. i cut off.

“....ALARM BELLS ....”

Written on: 08/08/2014 by spocksister (1 review written)

I spoke to quite a nice lady today offering lots of grants available. We went through the form together on the phone, I was getting quite excited at hearing at last some funding for my new start up business as a soletrader working from home with a wish for a lovely shop of my own. Then she gets to the part where she wants £189 in two parts, one up front. This is to access these many many funders of grants. My alarm bells started ringing and my heart sank. I fobbed her off with saying I had to… Read Full Review

I spoke to a fast talking lady aswell, she was very nice to me.. I was asked a lot of questions regarding my business, and was given a figure of 1 million in grants I could receive. 1, 163, 64 to be exact. I didn't pay, said I would give them a call and conveniently stumbled on this site. I was deadset on getting the money together to access the site, but have decided against it, after reading all these reviews. Was anyone else given a figure they could apply for?… Read Full Review
