I recieved a phone call stating that I was going to recieve a $7,000.00 federal grant for paying my taxes on time and having a good criminal background. The lady I spoke with had a deep arabic accent and said that I needed to take down my trasaction id number and told me to call (202) 470-1238 and give the representative my id number and I will recieve my money. I called the number and spoke with Nicole Barlow whom also had the same accent. She put me on hold to find my file, that took 9 mins. When she returned to the phone she confirmed my name and told me that I was to recieve $7,000.00 by western union. She stated that this money is not taxable and never has to be repaid. She said that I would have to go to western union and call her back and send $210.00 for banks fees to process the money they were sending me. Once I got to the western union, she would tell me everything to put on the paper. After it was sent she was to stay on the phone, and I would recieve my money in 10-30 mins. I asked her for the agency and address for the company she worked for she stated that her name was Nicole Barlow and she worked in the Government Grants Department at 200 Independence Ave. HHH Building S.W. D.C 20201. I then asked if this was a free grant why cant the fees be taken out of the $7,000.00 they were sending me, she said that the banks fees had to be paid on my part first and then my money would be sent out. I told her I didnt have the money for the fees and ask if I could do it on friday, she said yes. I decided to search the address and phone number and found out this was a SCAM. Please be aware of these people. We work too hard for the money we get for these low lives to try to take it that easy. Check the internet before u fall into one of these traps.
