Please Realize that was not the FTC

AUTHOR: P - (U.S.A.)

I want to correct you. I used to work at the Federal Trade Comiison Call Center. We used to receive the calls all the time from consumers stating that they had been receiving calls about government funds. That is a scam that have been becoming for years now but we recently received a large volume of calls like 7 months ago. Please be careful. THese people have a sale pitch that sounds legitimate. Like we tell consumers. The government will not call you and offer you a grant. If you receive these calls are going through any identity theft please contact the FTC. Look at our website for these type of scams as well as others you may not be aware. www.ftc.gov You can file a complaint about this company there. This is a place that takes action. The nmore complaints the more investigation takes place. Have as much info about any fraudulent companies if you can. If you been a victim of ID THFET YOU CAN GO THE id theft website www.consumer.gov/idtheft But please don't think the Federal Trade Commison scam consumers because they don't. Now that is a fact. The federal trade commision are not telemarketers they a government agency for consumers ask your attorney general, police department look it up do some research people.
