*Consumer Comment: Add on
I recently received a unknown phone call regarding furthering my education and being eligible to a grant
I was on the phone for a few minutes. Around 30. It was a guy. You could easily tell english was not his first language. He gave me information about colleges and universities and also told me i was to qualify for a grant.
He after transferred me to a educational sponsor or representative and i was told exactly what to say in order to qualify. I was also told to not mention anything about the grant. And to say i was looking for financial aid. Then i was transferred to another sponsor or representative. I was also told what to say and what not to say... So i did as i was told.
One week after i was called again from this unknown number. And it was the same guy speaking on the other side of the line.
He told me i was eligible for a grant from the government. Then he gave me an id number. 5 character, the first 2 were letter. O-and s. then 3 numbers. 019. And he also gave me a number to call so that i was to get the money release to my name via western union..
Thats when i was told to take $289 usd with me when going to western union. (202) 436-9932 thats the number that was given to call and get the money released. Once i called a lady answered and repeated all my information. Address. Names. Phone number. And the amount i "qualified" for.
I asked about the amount they first told me to take with me when going to western union. And so this lady said i explained that already. Is a security deposit to make sure is you the legit person. Then i respond "can yoube more specific?" Then she said to hold on for 10 seconds that she was gonna place me on hold for only a few seconds. Then i was left on hold for a long time i got tired of waiting so i hung up and called again. Now the lane did not rang there was just a voice saying.
The number you are trying to reach is not available at the momment please try again later.
Thats when i started having concrete doubts so i looked it up on line and i found this and figured out i was a victim aswell.
I hope my experience help people avoid this fraudulent persons from doing their dirty transactions
