I was contacted by a female, cannot recall the name she gave me I think is was Marie or Maria.  She advised that I had received a grant in the amount of $10,000.00.  I was a little skeptical about this because she stated that she was working for the US Grant Department.  She gave me an approval code which was, MI107. 

She continued on to give me a number to call and to confirm  who I was and recited my address and phone number.  She asked me how I wanted to receive my money and proceeded to tell me that I could have it deposited into my account within 30 minutes or I could receive 2 checks in the mail. 

I advised her that I wanted to receive the checks in the mail and she confirmed my address again.  she instructed me to call the number that she gave me and I replied do I have to and she said no I don't if I didn't want to but I needed to confirm who I was.

My curiosity got the best of me and I called the number the following day, 22September2011 between the hours of 1400 - 1430 hrs.  It was a bad connection and the point of contact was a male this time.  He gave his name but he had an accent something like an Indian but he gave me an American name.  I wasn't able to get all of the information on this call and he said that he would call me back.  But instead another male got on the phone with the same type of accent but he tried to disguise his but it later came out and he gave his name as Tony.  He advised that he would call back but never did.

Still curious I called later on in the evening before 1900 hrs and begin to ask a lot of questions especially after the guy I was talking to with an accent stated that I had to send $99.00 via Western Union so that it could be put towards one of organizations of my choice.  But before that he stated that it was for application fees and the like.

This is not true if you are receiving any money you do not have to send any money before they release the money you have coming to you. 

I googled US Grant Department and found that they had been reported it to  Rip Off Report because the incidents I read was just like they had approached me.  I am grateful for this website.  I had some second thoughts and suspicions and I was right.  Thank God for this website.
