Yes, it seems the American Grant Network is considered a scam. The home page of the American Grant Networks says, "Free government grants - Home grants - Business grants - Woman Grant - Education grant - Pell grant”.

According to the FTC, the Federal Trade Commission which is an American consumer protection agency, they point out that, "money for nothing grant offers usually are scams, whether you see them in your local paper or a national magazine, or hear about them on the phone.”

The FTC also says that consumers are often told things such as, "because you pay your income taxes on time, you have been awarded a free $12,500 government grant! To get your grant, simply give us your checking account information, and we will direct-deposit the grant into your bank account!”

No matter where you see the ad for a free grant, it is a good idea to stay away from such offers. The people that offer these types of free grants will usually lie about where they are located or will attempt to use an official sounding name to get your bank information. Attorneys for the Federal Trade Commission say that free grant offers invariably are rip offs.

The FTC warns consumers against such scams and reminds people to never give out their bank information to anyone they don’t know. They also say that a free government grant should not cost any money, so if someone wants your bank information to process a one-time fee, that should be a warning sign it is a scam.

The Federal Trade Commission has a website where consumers can go for more information. They also have a toll free number, 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or TTY: 1-866-653-4261 to register a complaint if you think you’ve been scammed.

Probably they have the exact same p.o. Box as communications publishing.Same city same state only things different are the company name and it doesn't say wall street in front of box. I don't think I'll be sending my money. Go find some cheap gold or silver in case the economy collapses.

I received their propaganda through the mail. I will report to the Postmaster General. This is apparently a fraud. Anybody could purport to operate a business through the mail. A suspicious indicator is the mail goes to a clandestine P.O.B., as it does in this case. If you are legitimate, you should have a legitimate address, home address, or business location. This offer is predatory on those people that are desperate. It is reprehensible for this very fact. If you receive this offer letter, report it to the post office inspector immediately, but above all DON'T DO IT !  DO NOT SEND CRIMINALS YOUR HARD EARNED CASH !!!!
