I received a call the beginning of November that I was selected to receive a federal grant money of $9200, I was given a confirmation number of PA516 by the first person who called me, I was very skeptical at first was this a joke etc the lady assured me this was legitimate. I was given a lady name of Alice Walker and phone number of (202)470-6035, when I called her she again assured me this was all on the up on up not a scam. She told me I had to donate $140.00 to a fund in Vietnam in order to get the monies, so she said go to Western Union and call her from there so she can help me fill out the form so I paid the $140 plus the Western Union fee of $10 so a total of $150.00. I called her back gave her the MCTN #, then she referred to a person by the name of Robert Cooper at telephone # 646 397-9911 he answers the phone "Thank you for calling the Federal Reserve Bank this is Robert Cooper" so again making it sound all proper. I told him I was referred to him by Alice Walker, he said oh I have your file information already, but in order to get the grant money, I would have to pay the taxes on the money, of course I did not have the money so I waited until I got paid call him back he again sent to Western Union to pay the taxes of $578.00 plus the western union fee which came to a total of $606.00, he said oh give him 20-30 minutes and I should have the monies wired to my bank account of course that never happened. So I called the next day, he said will they could not wire the money, I would have to pay the Western Union fee so he could have the money western union to me. So, I began to ask him that's quite a bit of money I don't think you can western union such a large sum of money, he had an answer oh he will break it up over three payments. I said to him well I don't have the $400 plus the fee of $20 to send him to do that, so I will just have to wait until I got money again, he said no problem, just take my time the money is going to be there whenever I was able to send it. I was able to get the money sent on November 21st, and I have not heard anything from him, as a matter of fact all I get is a busy signal when I dial the number from my phone number now so he has blocked my number from his phone, because if I call from another location it rings. This was a lesson learned I have been out of work so in debt so I was so excited about this relief not realizing until it was too late that these people are scam artist. But, they have to answer to a higher power than me.
