  • Someone called me saying they work Federal reserve bank and that I am qualified for $7,000 grant. They ask me to pay 310 at first, and later they ask me for $810 for Florida. I gave them 830 and they say I have to give them 310 for them to release the money to me. They gave an IQ number, they say when I give them the rest of the money, they will give me the rest of the info, so I can go and take the money at Western Union.

I received a phone call from (202)621-5429 that stated i qualified for the 7,000 grant that first required a 330 deposit on to a greendot money card that which cost me a total of 334.64 at the walmart closest to my house at which i was told to call (215)392-2168 to make the first initial payment to transfer my 7,000 grant that i qualified for so i spoke with a Johny Snow from a grants department from that phone number at which i was stupid enough to do not thinking to much about it at first but he gave me a Mike Parker's a representative with the federal bank in washington d.c. but he at which to me that there was now a 810 tax for the 7000 grant that he repeated multiple times that i would receive everything back at the total of 8410 - 330 initial payment - 810 second payment at which i felt it was too good to be true so i never purchased that card and then i started researching the scams and i seen all these scams going on but i was already screwed out of my 330 for a $7,000 grant that i should of known wasn't real
