If you have to pay money upfront to get a promised amount of money, it isn't legit.

Want them to stop calling? Thank them for the "money" and tell them instead of your paying upfront their "processing fee" or "insurance", they can deduct it from the proceeds and point out how that would save everyone time. Heck, you should tell the guy that he can deduct a few hundred for himself for English lessons. When they stutter and stammer about they can't do that, tell them you're sorry, but you can't accept their "generous" offer..if they haven't hung up on you by now, hang up on them.

What Was Your First Clue?

AUTHOR: Cory - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Tuesday, September 27, 2005
What was your first clue? That the guy couldn't speak English. That you needed to send him only $49.95 to get a grant for $12,500 or he kept "putting you on a machine that wasn't working"? Or, he called you back four days in a row? What to do? Change banks and don't answer the phone.
