New Scam- Grants

I had a colleague in Poole ring last week regarding this e mail. I today have now recieved it and research on net shows it is doing the rounds of all industries

There is new non-repayable grant available for a variety of industry sectors. Plus there is a 46% acceptance rate with these grants.

We are a genuine fully funded, non-profit organisation that helps small businesses like yours access UK grants and funding.

We are messaging you because you are entitled to a new form of non-repayable UK grant that currently has a 46% acceptance rate (that means 46 out of 100 businesses who apply actually receive a non-repayable grant).

The funding is to encourage businesses to start advertising online as some are getting left behind.

It is also thought that by providing companies like yours with a grant for online marketing and helping with these costs it will encourage you to advertise and in turn encourage consumer spending and boost the economy.

It is a simple 3 minute online application form, there are no fees even if you are accepted, and we deal with all paper work on your behalf. Plus you get a decision within just 5 working days and could receive anything up to 5000 which is completely non-repayable.

So what have you got to lose other than 3 minutes of your time?

Simply visit the below link and take a look at the website which has lots of information about the grant as well as the 3 minute online application form. You will then get a decision within 5 working days and if approved can then decide if you wish to accept the grant or not.

Please visit our website at http:// w (I have spaced out address to stop clicks)

Thank you and good luck with your application.

Haven't had that one yet - I'm sure it will arrive soon!

I do love the way they thought they ought to explain what 46% acceptance meant! I'm guessing that if you didn't know, you probably nead more help than a grant
You get what you settle for!
