Total money lost $400
Type of a scam Government Grant
One person impersonated a close friend that mentioned about the program and how much they got with a link. The best way to warn others is by showing some of the text being used.. Beware they keep using FedEx as the courier service. Here are some of the more important highlights that they use,
"OKAY THIS IS IFC PRIVATE GRANT FOUNDATIONS ISSUING BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN GRANT MONEY TO VARIETY OF GROUPS EACH YEAR. GRANTS ARE AWARDED TO INDIVIDUALS EACH AND EVERY DAY. GRANT PROGRAMS ARE NOT LOANS. YOU DECIDE HOW MUCH YOU NEED. AS LONG AS THE AMOUNT IS LAWFUL AND YOU MEET THE FOUNDATIONS AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES REQUIREMENTS, THE MONEY IS YOURS TO KEEP AND NEVER NEED TO BE REPAID. GRANT MONEY IS NON-TAXABLE AND INTEREST-FEE. GRANT MONEY DOES NOT REQUIRE A CREDIT CHECK, SECURITY DEPOSITS OR CO-SIGNERS, YOU AS A TAX PAYER ARE ENTITLED TO APPLY FOR THIS MONEY. THIS PROGRAM IS BASED ON HELPING PAYING FOR MEDICAL BILLS, BUYING A HOME, SALESMAN STARTING THEIR OWN BUSINESS, GOING TO SCHOOL, TEACHERS, RETIRED TEACHERS, WITH SENIORS OLD AND RETIRED PEOPLE. WHEN LOOKING FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE, REMEMBER THAT THERE ARE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN GRANTS AND LOANS. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO PAY BACK A LOAN, OFTEN WITH INTEREST. YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO PAY BACK",
"We have verified your information and it shows that you qualified to receive the grant money. This is your Ref No: 990078567 Batch No: 9056490602/333, Winning No: FB8701/LPRC, Ticket No: 85430000-07024570000, Serial No: 7755551111…. We ask that you keep this notification strictly from public notice until your claim has been processed and your money remitted."
"You Pay $850 and get $50,000,00., You pay $1,000 and get $90,000,00., You pay $1,500 and get $115,000,00., You pay $2,000 and get $150,000,00., You pay $3,000 and get $200,000.00, You pay $3,500 and get $300,000.00, You pay $4,400 and get $450,000.00, You pay $8,000 and get $550,000.00, You pay $9,200 and get $750,000.00, Final you pay $12,000 get $1,000,000.00",
"The money is coming from the world bank. Immediately the first payment is made your winning money will be delivered to your doorstep instantly and you will pay up the balance when its delivered to your doorstep."
"more thing….Dont disclose your winning to anyone not until you get your Grant we do this to make sure real winners get there money we had situations where other people claim what is not theirs and when you are making your payment do not disclose this to anyone because if you do the IRS will be inform about your Grant and the IRS will charge you 40% out of your Grant Money i hope you understand this?"
"the payment is meant for the FedEx. The FedEx are to deliver your winning money and you’re only making the payment for your delivery fee.
The information was just sent by the FedEx and it should be kept safe. It mustn’t be shared with anyone else."
"we’ve already told you that we follow the procedure given to us. Immediately you’re confirmed as a lucky winner which you must have done with your payment then we will forward every details to you immediately."
"Agent does not have access to the organization account for you to make payment or else you are paying for big amount,but the best way to quickly activities your grant through the agent is to get the the iTunes,that will be easy to activities and get your package from the FedEx"
They start to get a little rude,, "you will be ban from the organization page if you have posted [censored] on the page,be conscious and know the rules so that you can get your package with no delay"
"cool yourself down and follow the procedure, you will surly get your package delivery"
" this company will not tolerate this from you ,we have let you know what this organization is all about,we are not collecting any tax or payment form you aside your delivery fee"
I stay in touch with "them" to draw out more info on the scam. One thing is they are persistent on getting that other payment.
