This company is a total fraud! Consumers BEWARE. 

Initially a gentlemen with a foreign accent called me and stated that I had been chosen to receive a $10,000 grant from the United States Government Grant Department. He stated it was a way that the Government wanted to Thank me. The only requirements were that I could not file bankruptcy within the last 6 years and no criminal record. 

He wanted me to give him some personal information, such as my bank card information along with the CVV code on the back of my card. I instantly knew from that point it was a rip-off. I gave him information off of a prepaid card that I never used. After he gave me a grant approval ID # DG149 and told me to wait 10-15 minutes and call 202-657-6543 to speak with a representative. I waited about 30 minutes to call. That is when I spoke with a lady, Cindy King, who stated before the funds were released, I had to send $270 to some Federal Reserve Bank. 

I then said to Cindy King that if I have been awarded $7,000 then take the $270 out of the monies I was awarded. She said that the money was going to a donation which she never mentioned. I advised her to give me her fax # and that is when she became very rude and hung up on me. 

I waited another few minutes and called her back. I mentioned to her that I know she was trying to scam me and that I was going to report what she was doing, trying to steal innocent peoples money. Then she stated, I did not call you, you called me and that she was trying to steal anyone's money. 

I advised her that I researched the company online and saw a scam report. She became rude again and hung up. 

DO NOT GIVE ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION TO THESE PEOPLE.......SCAM ARTIST!
