My name is Michelle Green. I live in San Diego, CA. I was called by a representative named Cecilia Barker (202-621-0149) from the US Federal Grants Department two weeks after submitting a request to receive a grant online. The website was called UsFederalGrants.org. I was told that I was approved for a grant in the amount of $7,000. After she explained the amount of the grant she told me that i needed to sent a $200.00 deposit to India using Western Union, which did on January 5, 2012.

I was told that after sending $210. 00 ($10 fee for transaction) to Dharam Veer in India, I had to wait 10 minutes and the representative would give me a money control number to receive the  $7,000 plus the $210 via Western Union. The process was completed, I received a MCN and when  tried to get the money I was told by Western Union that my state placed a hold on the funds. This was due to the taxes that needed to be paid.

Since then I have been sending money to India on several occasions through a Senior Grants Manager named Sean Johnson his number is 202-621-0186. This has been going on for the past five months. After reviewing the website I started to get the feeling that this was a scam so I started checking online to see if there were similar grant offers being made to other people with the same MO.

 The total amount sent to the company was $5,349.00. The amounts were all sent by Money Gram to India and the receivers names, dates are as follows: Jan 5, 2012--$210--Dharam Veer; Feb 1, 2012 --$676 for CA tax's--Saurabh Gohtter; Feb 2, 2012 -- $676 for due to a mispelled name error -- Deepak Singh Bhoj; Feb 3, 2012 -- $485 for the cashier check fee from FedX -- Deepak Singh Bhoj; Feb 13, 2012 -- $509.50 due to the FedX misplacing my check -- Amandeep Singh; Feb 19, 2012 --
$500.00 hold on my file due to the fact that Sean Johnson's father dying -- Amandeep Singh; Mar 15, 2012 & Mar 23, 2012 -- $400 via Western Union to Chandra Prakash & Jay Ram; May 1, 2012 -- $1043.00 for lost of time and contact with Sean Johnson -- Amandeep Singh; May 4, 2012 -- $509.50 -- error with name in system at Money Gram -- Amandeep Singh; and lastly May 12, 2012 -- $309.50 -- Sandeep Singh.

 I made a point of keeping all the numbers, names, dates, and receipts as proof just in case this was a scam. Also the Money Gram centers keep the records of all transactions made in the system for a year.  I am hoping that I can get a lawsuit going so justice can be served on these criminals.
