On May 26th, 2005 I received a phone call from First National Government Grant Benefit stating I have been selected from my income tax return to receive a $12,500 dollar grant from the government, and did not have to pay it back. He also said I would not only receive this amount this year but every year from now on. Tarry Wilson id # 101008 stated the government had chosen 6,000 people to give these to. He said selection was based on a demographic survey they did and I must have participated in a few months ago. I don't remember any such survey.

Tarry said they would send me a packet of information and legal documents that would arrive in exactly 2 days. In this packet was the information on the grant, information on a Health Benefits package that is only $19.95 a month, but you are under no obligation. Also, in this packet would be instructions on how to send money to the Tsunami Relief Fund. A donation of $299.95 was requested. In the packet would also be a $100 cash voucher, good at any bank just for looking at the packet.

The number for their customer service department was stated as: 1-800-923-8939.

He also told me the only thing I would have to pay is a $29.95 shipping, handling, and processing fee for the government to put the money into my account electronically. This would be charged in exactly 2 days. Therefore, I will need your banking information so that we can get this check out to you.

When I told him I don't give my banking information over the phone, he got huffy with me. I don't understand your hesitation.

While I was on the phone with him, I Googled their business name and found Amanda's rip-off report on here. I told Tarry, I just looked up your company on the internet and found where someone says IT IS A SCAM. He said, Some people are mean, ma'am. I couldn't take anymore and hung up!

I hope this scam doesn't get you. Please remember that no company would ask for banking information over the phone if they have no existing relationship with you. Be Careful!!!

Columbia, South Carolina
