I was contacted at my residence about a grant I had filled out and application for ,I wanted to do some physycology courses ,and hopefully help my husband to be able to see a doctor with some of the funds.I got this call from a woman who sounded like she was from India ,she said I had been chosen to receive a grant for seven thousand and five hundred dollars ,I was thrilled and then she told me as a good faith act I needed to insure the grant was going to the correct person and I must send a western union fee of 252.00 in order to receive my grant money within ten minutes ,she said I must call her when I got to western unioun ,and she would walk me through the process. so I borrowed 252.00 dollars to send thinking I would have the money in a few minutes to pay back,the woman who called herself Sharon said I must send the western union money transfer to a Pector Soe in India because our government was using the country of India as grant lenders because it would come with a cheaper rate.I was gullible and did as she instructed ,

she asked me for the mtcn which was 3415273126 and I gave it to her then i asked how soon the wire would be and she put me on hold ,it was a few minutes before she came back on and when she did she said the server was down and couldn't complete the transaction to wait and hour to call them back ,I called back several times and when i reached her she said server was still down ,but she would call before that evening .Finally I did get a call back ,by another person who called himself Mark Smith telling me the money transfer had been received but I needed to send and additional 650.00 in order for them to process my grant,I told him I did not have that kind of money and could he please just wire my 252.00 back thats when he said no and began to tell me that unless i sent him the 650.00 I would not be receiving anything .I told him i wanted his managers name and he said Steve Johnson .Please put this out there so people know it is a scam and like me it can cause financial hardship.
