Helping Small Businesses Start, Grow and Succeed!

Attention Small Business Owners

We would like to bring to your attention a scam that is currently circulating, utilizing the logos of America's SBDC and SBA in an attempt to extract information from small businesses. This scam exhibits a significant level of sophistication, with the primary aim being to deceive individuals into divulging personal or business information, under the false pretext of awarding grants. It is important to emphasize that SBDCs do not have the authority to issue SBA grants, and small businesses should exclusively expect communication from the Small Business Administration.
