Hello everyone I received a call from a person by the name of Veronica,she was saying she is from the government grants office. I had did an application on line through the Internet (Grants.Gov) and a few months later I had received a call from her saying that me and my husband was granted a grant my husband was granted 10,000 dollars and I was granted 1,250 dollars she said that we can receive or money if we send 85 dollars she put use through this telephone receiver and she told use to answer yes to all of the questions she already had our information such as our address and phone number. After we did the telephone receiver information she told use to send the money and we would receive our money in 24 hours. This was me and my husbands first time so we sent the money everyone knows what happens next she wants use to send more money because the government official want to the wrong address and she send send more money so he can go to the right address so we did we never seen the money but we kept receiving calls we also received check numbers from her for me and my husband. I say a few months later we received a call from this man named Andy Erickson, and he also send he has my information and we have to send 300 dollars to them know I was already mad because I sent money to Veronica in Georgia. I ask him I am not sending any money to you guys because I have not received my money from the last person, and he told me that that was a scam this is the real thing, I ask him how do I know that he gave me a address and a phone number I looked it up and the build was what he said I called the number and he answered the phone so I said OK but I do not have any money he said I will send you some money I am not suppose to do this I can lose my job so he sent me the money.I sent it back just like he ask me and then he told me that the person I sent the money to was a scam person, and I need you to send 200 dollars. I told him about this time my husband was back from his duties in the Military and he told him if she sends this money I want to see this money come to the house so we sent the money. I called Andy the next morning he said your money would be their in 30 min so I waited the money never came so I called back one of his co workers answered the phone I knew it was one of his co workers because I no his voice and they told me that Andy had a heart attack and he want to the hospital. I cared but then I did not can I said so what does this have to to with my money. they told me that Andy had all of his information in his computer and he had a password and they did not know it. so I ask for my money back they told me that I would try to get your information out of the database and try to send your money. they got my information out of the database but they wanted me to send 300 dollars now. I told I was not sending any more money because I do not have it. because I did not have it know me and my husband are behind on bills and my son needs clothes and snickers and we do do not have the money now. Now how can I receive the money that was promised to us or how can we get our money back, even if we receive our money back it would not add up to the amount of bills we have to pay. what can we do?
