*Consumer Comment: Not a Rebuttal, CONFIRMATION SCAM ONGOING
So I called this number 202-905-0360 Washington DC, which I then spoke with a lady that repeated my address and such. She then verified how much grant monies I was to be getting and how I would be receiving it. I stopped her to ask her if there was anything to pay up front. Of course I know the answer to this, yes it was to be a $200 deposit which will be donated to some made up charity.
I am laughing to myself at this point, cause I know where this is heading. Been there, done that. I thanked the lady for her time, and let her know I was reporting this scam. I disconnected the call there after. I don't blame the agents for this, they are like everyone else...trying to get by with any job available.
As they all say, if it's too good to be true, it probably is. I just wanted to see how far this would go so I could report this. I hope this helps anyone out there about to give their hard earned money away. If you have to give money up front for money, it's probably a scam. They will milk you for as long as they can. Good luck to all.
