I received a phone call from a forein individual. He stated he was from American Grant Association. He said I would receive $25,000 if I qualified. There would be a one time fee of $249.00 and I would get a $500 valture with my package. I had a question servey that I needed to fill out and send back to them. I received a book in the mail, approx three weeks after I talk to him. I had given him my bank account information and also stated I DO NOT AUTHORIZE YOU TO TAKE OUT ANY MONEY!! He stated that my verification number was 380938.
I filled out the questionair and sent it back to the address given. I then called several times and spoke with a man that identified himself as Jeff employee number 13924. He said that my questionair was still in the processing department and that I would hear something in approximately a week, but if I didn't qualify I would recieve my one time fee of $249 back. About a week later I called the number back and spoke with a man that identified himself as Sean a supervisor employee number 11326. He stated that I would receive my money on October 15, 2005. I would receive $25,000, along with my $500 dollar valture.
October 15, 2005 I called the phone number and it was dissconnected. I had talked to people several time and the even called me back so therefore I figured that it was ligit because I could call them and they even returned my calls. I had an address and they even sent me a book. I am now at a loss of $249 and have now lost my car and several other items because of the $249 that was taken from me and along with me expecting the money. I was scammed and now that I have lost everything and am trying to start over, I would not ever want to see this happen to anyone else.
