Tread very carefully here. I dont know these people...but calling it 'good faith money' does not sound right coming from a possible firm connected to the VC's. Seems to me that they would take a percentage of the funding as a finders fee...not request any money up front.
We need a couple of our SCORE guys to weigh in as well...LUCKIEST????
I did some search and found that someone named Ray S had asked about this company on Yahoo answers. A link was posted to an FTC Judgement against the owners of the company. I downloaded the pdf, if you are interested, check my profile and email me I will get it to you.
I did a site search and yes we have discussed this company before. It looks like they have made some corrections to the website...corrected some language etc. See my previous comments as well.1 of 1 people found this helpful
The web site I found seemed to be for a real consulting company not one that did VC deals. If memory serves me right...there was a web site but it was poorly structured and worded. This does not sound like something you want to do. keep your hard earned money and work on your exe summary & business plan.

this company asked for 2500.00 upfront as a good faith down payment to help me secure venture capital money, is this normal, i thought under the telemarketers sales rule you could not pay for a loan until you have the money in your possession for a number of days
