ON 1/7/2011 I RECIEVED A CALL FROM A PERSON BY THE NAME OF WILLIAM SMITH(HEAVY INDIAN ACCENT)THAT ALREADY HAD MY IDENTITY,AND BANKING INFO THAT HE RESITED TO ME FIRST AND THEN HE STATED TO ME THAT I HAD BEEN CHOSEN BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO RECIEVE A GRANT FOR $5,000 THAT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE REPAID WHICH WAS RELAYED HEAVILY BY WILLIAM.WHEN I PROCEEDED TO ASK WILLIAM HOW AND WHY WAS I CHOSEN FOR THIS GRANT AND HE STATED THAT THE GOVERNMENT CHOOSES PEOPLE AT RANDOM THAT HAVE PAID THEIR BILLS AND TAXES ON TIME OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS AND THIS IS THEIR WAY OF GIVING BACK.SO WITH THAT IN MIND I STUPIDLY GAVE IN AND SAID THAT I WOULD GO ON WITH THE PROCESS TO RECIEVE THE FREE GRANT.

MEANWILE, WILLIAM SAID TO ME ONCE I AGREED TO MOVE FORWARD THAT I WILL BE RECIVEING A CALL FROM HIS SR. SUPERVISOR IN ABOUT 2 HOURSAND THE ONLY WAY I COULD GET THIS GRANT IS IF I SPEAK TO HIM, SO I MUST STAY BY THE PHONE OR CALL THEM BACK IMMEDIATELY IF I MISSED THE CALL,OR THE GRANT WOULD EXPIRE.IN ABOUT 2 HOURS EXACTLY I RECIEVED A CALL FROM A PERSON BY THE NAME OF STEVE WALLS (HAD A HEAVY INDIAN ACCENT)PERTRAYING TO BE THE SUPERVISOR,AND HE STATED THAT I BELIEVE YOU TALKED TO ONE OF MY COLLEGUES EARLIER AND I REPLIED YES,THEN HE SAID SO YOU SHOULD BE EXPECTING MY CALL ABOUT THE GRANT YOU WERE APPROVED FOR AND KNOW ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS WESTERN UNION A FEE OF $200.00 TO DELHI,INDIA TO A PERSON BY THE NAME OF BARSHASHAHI,KHADKI AND THEN HE WOULD BE ABLE TO WIRE TRANSFER THE $5,000 INTO MY BANK ACCOUNT ONCE I CALLED BACK WITH THE MTCN NUMBER.WHEN I STOPPED HIM AND ASKED HIM HOW DID HE GET MY INFO HE SAID FROM TH U.S GOVERNMENT AND THAT THEY ARE THEIR AGENT/REPRESENTATIVES,THI IS WHAT MADE RED FLAGS STAR TO RAISE IN MY HEAD.

BUT THEY ALREDY HAD MY INFO SO I THOUGHT I MAY AS WELL GO AHEAD WITH IT HOPFULLY IM JUST PANICING.SO I WENT TO WIN DIXIE AND WESTERN UNIONED THE MONEY LIKE STEVE TOLD ME TOO AND I CALLED HIM BACK WITH THE NUMBER. HE ACTED AS IF HE WAS SO EXCITED WOW! HE SAID, NOW BRANDI YOUR 2 HOURS AWAY FROM RECIEVING YOUR MONEY,SO CHECK YOU BANK EVERY HOUR TO SEE IF THE MONEY IS THEIR SO I DID.

THIS WAS ABOUT 2:00PM AND AT 4:30PM I STILL DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY IN MY ACCOUNT SO I CALLED THE NUMBER BACK 202-657-6297 AND AFTER THE STATICY SOUND IN THE BACKGROUND AND THE INDIAN LANGUAGE BEING SPOKEN I KNEW THEN THIS WAS A SCAM.WILLIAM ANSWERED THE PHONE!HELLO! AS IF HE WAS AT HOME INSTEAD OF AT WORK,I SAID HI THIS IS BRANDI IS THIS THE GOVERNMNET GRANT DEPT AND HE SAID YES HOW CAN I HELP YOU I SAID WHY HAVENT I GOTTEN MY MONEY YET,HE SAID GIVE IT A WHILE YOUR NOT THE ONLY ONE RECIEVING THIS MONEY AND IT TAKES A WHILE FOR FOR A BANK TO BANK TRANSFER SO JUST TO HOLD MY HORSES SO I DID.

ON 1/8/2011 I WOKE UP CHECKED MY ACCOUNT AGAIN NO MONAY SO I CALLED BACK COULDNT GET ANY BODY BUT A VOICE MACHINE THAT SAID(NO ONE IS AVAILABLE TO ANSWER YOUR CALL)BY A LADY WITH A BRITISH ACCENT.I CALLED,CALLED,CALLED UNTILL 1:30PM WHEN STEVE FINALLY PICKED UP AND I ASKED HOW COME IF THIS IS A BUSINESS WHY DOESNT ANYONE PICK UP THE PHONE AND HE SAID THEY ARE ON A DIFFERENT TIME ZONE WHICH I KNOW IS A LIE IF THEIR IN WASHINGTON D.C AND THAT THEY DONT GET TO WORK UNTILL 1:00PM.AS THE CONVERSATION WENT ON I ASKED WERE IS MY MONEY I WANT IT KNOW OR MY $200.00 BACK AND WE CAN CALL IT EVEN.HE SAID OH MISS BROWN THE REASON WHY YOU DINT RECIEVE IT IS BECAUSE YOU ONLY PAID $200.00 WHAN THE FEE IS REALLY $299.99 AND THATS WHY THE MTCN NUMBER YOU GAVE ME CANT BE EXCEPTED BY THE MACHINE.

THATS WHEN I TOLD HIM NO,NO,NO THIS IS A SCAM I WANT MY MONEY BACK.HE SAID MISS BROWN I WILL CANCEL YOUR APPLICATION AND SEND YOU BACK YOUR MONEY THROUGH MAY BANK ACCOUNT AND I SAID NO,HE THEN STATED THAT I WOULD TAKE 45 DAYS TO BE PROCESSED AND ILL RECIEVE A CHECK IN THE MAIL.THESES ARE ALL LIES,LIES,LIES DONT BELIEVE THESE PEOPLE,I HAVENT HEARD FROM THEM SINCE 1/8/2011,BUT THEY ARE GONNA GETCAUGH BELIEVE THAT,I HOPE ITS WORTH IT INDIANS.
