Federal Reserve Bank - Peter Smith - Nick Parker - Mark Wilson - Calvin Smith they promised me a government grant but charged me fees Washington, District of Columbia
*Consumer Comment: Really
*Consumer Comment: What a dupe
*General Comment: That was not the Federal Reserve
I them spoke with Peter Smith who said I had to send a deposit of $950 that I would also get back immediately. Before I sent that money I got a call from Nick Parker who said he was a senior finance manager at the bank and my account had been transferred from Peter Smith to him. He told me all I had to send was $500 and I could send the remaining $450 after I get my funds. I did that on 9-28-11 also.
All of these people assured me this was not a scam but I fell for it anyway. I exhausted all my resources to send this money.
I spoke with Peter Smith on 9-29-11 and he told me Nick Parker was not part of the bank and I shouldn't have sent him any money. He called me back later and told me I needed to send $650 via Western Union that day in order to get my grant which by then I was told would total over $8,000.
I told him I didn't have any more money and I didn't understand why they kept asking for more. He just kept saying I would get it all back. When I told him I didn't have any more money he told me he would have to close the file.
I have not been able to reach any of these people since then. I have different phone numbers for each person I spoke with and I also have my receipts with the MTCN #'s on them for each Western Union transaction.
I am now on the verge of losing my home over this and am really scared. I need help desperately and I need it now.
