Total money lost $12,900

Type of a scam Government Grant

I was contacted through Facebook messenger by someone who acted like my brother in law. He assured me that the grant was legitimate and he bought a house and is remodeling it. He got $100,000 from NGMA. Then, "my brother in law " on messenger gave me this agent’s name Dennis Braden. They get you to pay a processing fee- $2000 and then want you to pay taxes up front $10,900. After all that you can get $200,000.00.

Well I never got the $200,000 because the UPS truck was in an accident and the truck caught fire. Then, they wanted $6500 to get the check out of the fire fighters custody. I finally became smart at the end when they wanted additional $6500 for fire fighters custody.

A Facebook “friend” messaged me telling me they saw my name on a federal winners list and to text a number. I texted the number playing along, and they asked for an advance payment of $1,500 to receive $100,000.
