US Grants and Treasury dept Eric Carter, Ben Wesley, and David Johnson Had me send 205$ thur westernunion to a Teresa Daniels for the homeless for an 8400$ government grant that I was randomly chose for,and others. Washington, District of Columbia
In order to release the grant I had to send 205$ to the charity chosen by the New York bank to a Therese Daniels in Fl. After doing so I call Eric Carter back gave him the western union number and was told by him that someone from the New York Bank would contact me.
The next day David Johnson from the New York bank called me, verified my info and told me my grant money will be released in 15 minutes as soon as I send an additional 499$ that would be refunded with the 8400$
At this point I knew this was a scam and asked why was this not told to me before I sent 205$? He then told me to call Eric back and ask him. I did. Eric placed me on hold, came back on the line stated he has spoken with a David Johnson from the bank and my money is ready to call David back.
I called David back and he told me he had not spoke with Eric and the grant will be sent back to the government if I didn't send the 499$ by six this evening.( 4/2/2013)
I told him he I'm reporting this scam. He said go ahead and make sure you give them my number! (646-462-4118 ext 709)FYI- when you call this number back you don't even need an ext.
Another sign I had been scammed.
