Scamed On Line Info I sent on line to:

The 1st thing they ask for is my bank name & account# or credit card#. They give you a fake call back #, a confermation#,& name of their Account Officer Mark Golden. (Today3/14th it was Chris Walter.)
$259.00 & 459.00 plus 10.00 for both WesternUnions is what they scamed me for one on Sat.3/10 & Tues. 3/13 2012
Please help me get my money back:
They use a phone # title position where they operate from. This is what happened & you can decide on what to do from what I provide of what happened to me:I was searching & applying for personal loans & grants on line. Just immediately after doing a "google" search & applied for grant money on line I got a call from 202-684-6772 Jennie Charity, (she ask me* for a c"grant information code" & I said P215) an awards Account Dept. Mngr. She told me she had a grant for me for $7500.00 or $7000.00. But I had to to the following to get the grant. She told me to go to WesternUnion & send $260.00 to a person in India. She said it will cost $10.00 to send. I sent it & called her back with the MTCN#741-060-8823. She told me to call Mark Golden at a bank (I don't have the name of the bank but when I find that out I will email it to you. Now Mark Golden's telephone # is 2026574848. Mark Golden said he was the loan officer in charge. *When I told him Jennie Charity had given me his phone # to call to get the grant from him, he then said he had to look it up. He came back to the phone & said I had been awared $8000.00 & that I must pay bank fee of $459.00 plus 10.00 to transfer the money from WesterUnion. They both told me to go to the WesternUnion office & fill out the form at that time they gave the person's name to send the money to. Again it was a person(Amarjit Kau) in India.I called Mark Golden back with the MTCN:366-112-9087. He said he had all of my checking account information when I asked him about the electronic deposit of the 8,000.00 into my account. Then he said, give me an hour. I called him back in 1&1/2 hour because he never called me back. Then he said taxes had to be paid on the $8000.00 of $800.00 before he could electronically transfer the money. I told him I was going to report him to the authorities & report this scam on line. He said, "I don't care". Now, I'm out of $269.00 (10.00transfer fee include) plus $469 (10.00 transfer fee included).
Read the above information. After you do a "google" search, you pick what you want to respond to:Example I was searching initially for loans. Then I searched for "grants". Then they called my on my phone.
I'd like to forward a statement with facts regarding my being scammed. Please contact me by email or cell phone(message if I can't answer). Email: thaniball & Cell#: 727-992-2701
I was called & congratulated for being pre-approved for a 7,500 loan, 2 times by 2 different groups; & pre-approved for $5000.00. They each required either deposit, co-signer plus deposit. What was to "terrible" was they tell you to "Western Union" (you can't get your money back)it to them But fax or mail contract to you.
Today 3/14/2012:
Federal Grant Dept. Washington, DC 202-405-4852(recording says:the #you're trying to reach isn't in service, check the # & try again) or 202-391-0961 called me saying I was to receive $7500.00 deposited into my checking or savings account with in 45 minutes. She said her Account Officer Chris Walter was going to speak to me to verify every thing. I never heard back from them.
On Saturday3/10/2012 Jennie Charity called with the exact same offer from 202-684-6772(no one answers any time except in the morning around 9AM after ringing many times). She said my "grant information code was P215. I never received the money into my account. They always ask for name of Bank, routing #, & account #.
