AWARD GRANT - EFI ENTERPRISE SCAM!!! OFFERING FRAUDULENT GRANTS VIA MAILED RUBBER CHECKS TO RECEIVE 10% COMMISSIONS FROM GRANT TOTAL MALIBU California
My brother received a check in the mail for approx... $4,450.00 along with a letter which told he that he was selected to receive a GRANT from this company in a total of aprox... $9,500.00 and the remaining funds will be mailed to him after they receive 10% of the total grant. I informed my brother to contact the California Chapter of the BBB who told him this company was not on the list. The BBB (Better Business Bureau) advised my brother to contact the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) who verified that the check was no good and told him they believed he was being SCAMED! My brother also contacted the bank in which the funds where supposed to be drawn on Washington Mutual in California and they told him that the routing and account numbers was not theirs.
The letter read as copied/pasted from one of the so called grant brokers Rena Jones at the company's website:
Hello, Im Grant Broker Rena Jones,
If I acquired your grant for you you must choose me to send the 10% commission to.
I had to fly to Europe on an emergency business errand and I will not be back in the United States office in Malibu, California until late next month. However, the deadline to pay the commission and qualify to receive the other portion of your payment is still 5-days after you cash or deposit the check. I have your checks with me in Europe. Please follow the instructions below to allot me the10% commission of your first payment and I will still send your other check for the same amount as the first check you received by Next Day Air from Europe!
I Accept Commission Payments Via: GREENDOT A New Way To Send Cash
You can send me a cash payment by adding money onto a GREENDOT Universal Reload Card or a GRENDOT MoneyPak (same thing) and sending me the card number. This will allow me to load the money into my bank account instantly. You can purchase these cards in the prepaid section of any Right Aid, Walgreens, CVS, Ralphs and many other smaller retailers throughout the United States. The prepaid section is the section with the gift cards, cell phone cards and etc.
Here is what the cards look like: (Here's is where they have a picture of the GREENDOT INFO.)
Notice that Ive circled in red the words MoneyPak on one card and MoneyPak Universal Reload on the other card. This is because GREENDOT also sells Pre-Paid Visa & MasterCard Credit Cards as shown below.
Warning: Here Is What The Cards DO NOT Look Like: (Here is where they place a picture of what they do not what you to use)
Notice that none of these cards says MoneyPak or Universal Reload! They say Prepaid Visa or Prepaid MasterCard as Ive also circled in red. You DO NOT want to get any of these cards as I cannot accept them. Again the card you want Must Say, MoneyPak or MoneyPak & Universal Reload near the GREENDOT logo. If you ask the cashier for a GREENDOT MoneyPak or Universal Reload card they may hand you a Pre-Paid Visa or MasterCard by mistake, because many of them dont know the difference. It is your responsibility to make sure the card you load funds onto says either MoneyPak or MoneyPak and Universal Reload.
It cost only $4.95 to load up to $500 on one of these cards. If the 10% commission your paying is over $500 because your first check was over $5,000, simply load money onto additional cards.

Come back to this page once you have the card and Click Here to send me the number which will be located on the back of this card electronically online or Click Here to FAX me the numbers. I can then instantly transfer the funds to my bank account and Ill send you your other check, which is being held in waiting, by Next Day Express Airmail. If using the fax option be sure and fax directly to my eFax number (this just means I receive the fax on my computer; you send the fax just like to any other fax number): 219-841-5406. Do Not fax it to the company fax number in Malibu, California.
