As many of you know, I spend a fair amount of time on LinkedIn groups largely because there are so many diverse people on the network. However, one of the biggest problems with LinkedIn is anyone can post anything they want with little (or no) danger of getting banned. The latest one I see is a group of people promoting a “Government Grants for getting out of debt”. I’m here to tell you, it is NEVER going to happen!
Here’s the “overall” gist of their message “When looking to pay off credit card debt, one of the most overlooked options many people have are government grants. Many people do not look into these grants because they simply do not know about them. However, the government sets aside billions each year just for this purpose, to give them away. If you are one of the millions of people who are suffering from credit card debt, you definitely want“. Well, there’s a reason that most people don’t look into it and don’t know about them. It’s because THEY DO NOT EXIST. I’ve written about these government grant scams before, but unforunately, I see these guys are back in full force. What particularly amuses me about this one is the folks who are claiming they are legit. Like the LAWYER WHO LIES TO PEOPLE on a regular basis and rips them off for simple things they need for their website like Terms of Service and Privacy Policies. I’ve written about this con artist in the past too, this guy charges you over $2,000 dollars to “LICENSE” a TOS and PP. Seriously? Get a life pal!
Here are some informational articles about these Government Grant Scams that can help keep you out of trouble!

The bottom line is there is NO easy way out of debt. You’ll get out the same way you got in. One payment at a time.
