The thick INDIAN accent threw me off. But he gave me his name, supposedly, RALPH HUDSON. He told me he is with GOVERNMENT GRANT ASSOCIATION.
He told me I was eligible to recieve $5,000.00 in GRANT money for a $199.00 assessing fee up front.
He told me my name and address, and then asked for my bank name. I was stupid, and told him the bank name. He told me the routing number. Which he had CORRECT!!! Scary!
Then he was persistent that he needed the account number. I was persistent with him that I needed to verify his company. He game me the web address of www.grantrloan.com. Which is NOT A VALID ADDRESS.
I told him that he needed to call me back after I had a chance to verify his company and we could take it from there. I told him to call me tomorrow. He was very persistent and asked if he could call back tonight, in an hour or so. I told him sure.
I got off the phone and began my search on the web.
Here, all I could find is this website with others telling me of the fraud! BEWARE! THIS IS SUCH A SCAM! AND I HAVE REPORTED IT TO THE FBI!
Routing numbers do not mean anything without account numbers, but with both anyone can commit ELECTRONIC FRAUD!
This gentlemen "RALPH", had an ENGLISH speaking person in the background telling him what to say, yet when I told him that I could not understand him, he just simply repeated himself and I could hear the person in the background. VERY FISHY! ALERT! BEWARE! DANGER!!!!!
