Well first they called my fathers phone and told him they were a grant company, so him not knowing, he called me and informed me that they had called. After that I called them and spoke to a foriegn man and he told me that they would call me right back when they looked up my information. I received a call back from them and then a lady by the name of Ashley Ashford, which also is a foriegn lady asked for my info.

She then informed me that i was awarded a grant of $5,000. Due to the fact I am a college student and recently did my finiancial aid, i thought that maybe thats what it was pertaining to. She asked me for my bank account number and routing number. I then asked is that the only way that I am able to receive the money and she told me yes. I went on and gave her that information, but I was not aware of my routing number so she looked it up for me. She then told me how much money I had in my bank account.

Once she gave me that information I became curious about how easy it was for her to look up that information. I then asked for her name, address,and phone number. She gave me all of that information and told me that the $5,000 would be in my account by the 2nd of April, there was a process fee of $29.95, and a verification company would call me and ask me the same information over again to verify that it was me. I told her ok and she hum=ng up the phone.

After she hung up, I looked on my caller ID and noticed that the call was from an unknown number, I then called the number off of my cell phone and noticed that it was a New York area code. I tried again to call off of my house phone and the phone number that I hald already called once did not even ring. Now I am stuck in this situation because they have my bank account number and I am not sure how to stop them from doing anything in my account. I Really Got Scammed
