Federal Grant and Treasury Department Con me out of $270 Washington D.C.
I was called by an Indian woman who said her name is Stacy Brown. Her phone number was 212-121-2121. I had received about 4 calls a day the previous 1.5 weeks and decided to finally answer the call and request they quit calling me. She said I had been selected by the Federal Government Grant Department to receive $7000 in free grant money to pay bills or use for whatever reason because I had been faithful in paying my taxes, paying bills, etc. She said I could receive it either by Western Union or have it direct deposited to my bank account once I had given them my account and routing numbers.
I thought to myself this sounded too good to be true and why would the Federal Government use someone who had difficulty speaking English to represent them. She then gave me a Money Approval ID # and the phone number of the Grant Manager. She told me to call as soon as I got off the phone with her.
So I did and was connected with "Sam" after I called 202-657-4727. He reassured me that I had been selected but that I had to pay a $270 security deposit. I asked him why the Federal Government could not just mail me a check. He said they wanted me to receive my grant money and that is why they were requesting the security deposit. When I persisted with questions, he said he would just cancel my account if I did not want the $7000 grant money. I told him I need to think about it and asked if it was OK if I call him back with my decision. He said it was up to me. He hung up on me without another word.
I then google'd "Federal Grant and Treasury Department, Hoax" and was directed to Ripoff Report. I saw several reports similar to mine and am grateful for this website.
