I receive a call March 13th at around 1 o'clock p.m. I was told that I was chosen as 17,000 people to receive a 7000 dollar grant I was told that the grant was totally free and no cost to me and I was given a confirmation number as well Narn another number to contact I contact the number I gave the confirmation number they gave me a routing number for Western Union Station and then I will pick up seven thousand dollars at Western Union within 10 to 15bminutes.

I was told that they were from internal revenue and that they were giving out money for any use rather it be home Michael over pay off bills schooling buy a new car or a vacation to agreement was to not use it for weapons or drugs I contact the number I gave my confirmation number once again as I did so I talked to a guy named Mark he instructed me that I needed to go and purchase a greendot card from a 7-Eleven or a Walmart for $250 to state that that was me and to hold my phones I did so.

I called him back I gave him the numbers which was probably dumb of me but I was thinking ok is Internal Revenue so these people must be trustworthy for they are working for the sided so I said okay I'm ready to go pick up my money he said no you have to wait a second okay now you have to pay 770 in order for you to receive the full of them out of your $7,000 you were received the seven thousand dollars plus your 770 back so in total you will get 7,770 I was put on hold for about 30 to 40 minutes

wow this was processed he gets back he comes back on the lineand he says you never received that much I'm out from Western Union so we have to split up before payment so in order for us to send it to you you will have to send us 400 into dollars on two separate green dot cards that would get you your money in four different transactions hear the routing numbers he did so he gave me all 16 of 16 numbers for each for routing numbersonce I spoke to him he said okay you're fine to go pick it up but its closed right now will the money where we where we submit our money is closed right now our time difference is different you're in where in Washington and you're in Los Angeles.

I can pick up my money on Saturday morning which was March 17 I did so at 9 a.m. I went to rest in you and closer to my house I filled out the four forms with the 16 digit numbers of each paper I submitted to the lady gave her my ID and other identification I was told that the numbers were not found she also question of numbers from each paper and show me the screen that it was not found she asked me did I pay a fee in order to receive this money I told her I did so she said it may be a scam its been happening a lot

Monday morning I proceeded to call no answer it went straight to voicemail Tuesday are also receipt also proceeded to call no answer today Wednesday March 19 I receive a call at 3 00 p.m. Pacific time by a man named Patrick stating that I didn't receive my friends and the reason why I didn't receive my friends was because I owe the IRS 2013  taxes explained to him I did not owe the IRS for last year's taxes due to the fact that I receive my payment for my taxes last year and its so they would have garnish they would have took the money right away or garnish my check right away

I did not receive an email he proceeded to tell me that that they have tried to contact me through the mail several times no response and that I should be lucky that they did not garnish my check I told him you must think I'm crazy I've file for my taxes this year and if I owe 2,000 of last year's taxes that they would have took their money already does not play this makes me think that you're ripping me off this is what I told him and he said if I was ripping you off why would I call you I said of course to get more money.

I also asked him how much was it again he said nine thousand I said how did it go from 7,770 to 9,000 he proceeded to say cause that's the full amount I said well if I just paid you 2600 on Friday and didn't receive anything on Saturday you didn't call on Monday or Tuesday but you said you did how is it that now the grant is for $9000 this is full of bull you are trying to rip me off or I should say you didn't rip me off how can I get my money back.

I also proceeded to ask him if I could get my 2,600 back he told me I needed to pay him $426 in order to get my money within 10 to 15 minutes in the case will be closed or they will hold the case which will be in total of nine thousand or is just my lostI asked for the address of the company he told me if its her no revenue in Washington what do you mean the address what you mean the name of the company where the IRS

I said that is not correct I told him that I would be having my lawyer call him or someone of that matter he told me to tell me which his name is Mark and parenthesesI'm not scared now I told him you sound like a fool because the irs wouldn't  say anything like that I'm not scared I told him you have a blessed day may God bless andnmay God bless you and may he have mercy on your soul for you will be dealt with and you will not be getting any more money out of me.
