I called my mother to find out if it was a scam or not. I gave her the phone number of 1-202-738-1853 and my so called confirmation.
She called and spoke to John Burns her self and he explained that I misunderstood and all I had to do is bring 10 dollars to Western Union for a commerical transfer to receive 9,000. But before going into Western Union I was to call John back an he was to put a person on the phone from his financial bank department and he was going to give me a code to receive my grant money.
So I did go but I didnt call them first. I went in to Western Union to find out if they have heard of any such nonsense. The gentleman inside said it sounded like a scam. He informed me to call Western Union and Consumer Affairs. I did so and found out that grant money DOESN'T go through Western Union. It comes in the form of a check by mail
