I received a phone call yesterday at about 1:00 p.m. by this lady by the name of Candy Simpson. She sounded Asian to me... or phillipino... so did the second man I spoke to. So she told me I was getting a 12,000 dollar grant. I questioned her for a long time about how she got my information. She even had my work adress. which is how she tricked me.

After several questions she directed me to a machine whcih some guy was controlling. In the end they just gave me a confirmation number or something and then they just hung up... it was very strange to me .So I immediately made sure all of mu information was safe.

They spoke of many things... the lady and the machine. She even told me that as a thank you I was receiving a $500.00 award to buy food anywhere of my preference. YEAH!!!

So I was talking to the machine and all of a sudden the machine starts telling me that they are going to charge me a $19.00 fee for giving me free long distance calls for 10 days.

I was even offfered a healthcare plan. yeah. She spoke of many good things, she fooled me. But its ok. Oh yeah so she told me i had to pay a $49.95 fee in two days for transaction of something. I was like ok. Thats when i caught on... See at first I was surprised. I thought i had won the lottery or something. For It sounded so well thought out.
