U.S. Grant Department Steven Carlton (Grant Officer), Joel or Gerald Porter (Officer Account Manager). Grant Scam Washington DC Internet
A couple weeks ago I had a young woman call me on my cell phone from the "U.S. Grants Department" she said I qualified for a Grant of 8400 USD and at that time I found it suspicious so I said this sounds like a scam so I hung up. In the past two days July 10th and July 11th of 2013 I have had a gentlemen by the name of Steven Carlton call me. He told me he was from the "U.S. Grants Department" and that I qualify for an 8400 USD grant. I gave him my name, address, and routing and checking account #. He said he would call me back with a Grant Approval ID# which he did a few minutes ago of KC135, he then instructed me to contact his Officer Account Manager Gerald or Joel Porter I really didn't understand him so I wrote down two names I thought I heard him say. The number he told to call is 202-558-4554. Steven called me from 202-660-1040 a Washington D.C number. Not sure if this is legit, I called my bank and told them what happened they have now put an alert on my account. I told Steven today that I rather put it on my credit card instead and gave him the number to my mastercard. This sounds like a big scam and what I have been reading tells me that I should not proceed any further. Most likely I am going to have to change my account number on both my bank account and credit card. I am hoping someone can find this guy and make him pay for wasting people's time.
Thanks for listening to my story.
P.S. DO NOT GIVE THIS MAN ANY INFORMATION IF HE CONTACTS YOU!!!!
