,On July 6, a man name Calvin Smith called me at home and stated his name and badge number760-568ck and that he worked in the federal reserve bank in Washington.DC.  He stated that I was awarded a grant for8480  because I put in for it.  He told me that I would have to  pay an activation fee of $205.00 to Dung Hug Le by western union but the money would be reimbust the following day. 

I never thought of this being a scam because at the time we thought that my daughter who was in the Philippines at that time was kidnapped  so I thought the money would be great and my dog needed a test to determine if he had cancer and what type he had.  I went and did it and I gave the mtcn number to Mr.Smith  326-228-5077. He told me that I would receive a call the following morning at work from the manager of the Federal Reserve Bank in Washington,DC. 

 The following morning a lady identified herself as Kwith athy Hill , manager of the grant department in Washington,DC.  She stated that I needed to pay an activation fee to a Gideon Nabong Jr for $499.00 which would be reimbust within one hour after I send the money by westernHe sai union.  So I did and I gave her the mctn 362-077-7307. 

Mrs. Hill told me that the money in the amount of $8949.00  would be deposited into my account within five hours.  I waited for six hours but their was no money in my account.  Another person called me named mike johnston and told me that their was a problem with the money getting into my account. He said that he would take care of it but it never happened. All I want is the money I put into this scam  or the amount of the grant money promised $8949.00.

AUTHOR: kavi84 - (United States of America)

I have been scammed over $2300. by a group claiming to be working for the Federal Government Grant of the United States of America.  These people claimed that the US Government have chosen me to receive grant money(that is tax free)because I have always paid my taxes on time and don't owe the US Government.  I have spoken to four different individuals who have claim to work for the Federal Bank of New York and the US Government Grant Department.  These are the numbers and people I have spoken to, First was Aaron Stone, senior office @            (202)407-7177      , who told me that I am going to receive a grant for $8,400us, but first I have to go to the western Union nearest to me an make a payment/send money to Cezar Catacutan for the amount of $210. and then I will receive my grant.  I went ahead and paid the money, then someone name Nancy Smith from the bank called from this number             (646)217-0277       and said that the money will be deposited on my account in 15 to 20 minutes.  It never did. The next day I called her and she said that the money could not be deposited because of some difficulties they were having, she said that I have to go back to the western union an transfer $499. so that they will be able to send me the money via western union and then someone from the higher office will call me back with the MTCN number for me to collect my grant.  That's when I got a call from Olivia Jones @            (202)609-7749      , he told me that I need to go back to western union and transfer $925 and then he will release the funds to me.  I paid that to.  Then he called and said that I still have to pay $940. which is 9.7% taxes on the money.  I tried to explain to him that I don't have that money and I want my money back, he said that I am not gonna get it back, that is my lost and there is nothing he can do.  I made that money up by pawning my jewelry.  Paid $625. was the least they are willing to take.  He said that the next day (11/1/12) I will receive $10,854. that will cover my money that was promised and someone from the western union office will be calling with the MTCN number.  He called me and told me to hold on he is gonna transfer me to someone from the western union office who will give me the information to get the grant money and to be reimbursed the money I paid.  His name is Norman Chambers.  Mr Chambers said that I am receiving a grant for more than $10,000. so I need to find a way to make up $846. and when this money is paid, then he will release the MTCN and then I will get me grant.  I can't afford this or make up that money.  Please help.  Stop these people from ripping off poor or single parents like myself who can't afford this.  I am now left with nothing, I have lost everything believing that I was going a receive this money.  I don't know what I will do in the next few coming weeks to feed my 9 month son..
