Type of a scam Government Grant
My best friend texted me to call her asap. I called her and she told me her friend had messaged her from Facebook messenger asking if she had heard about the United Nations program grants? Text this number 703-348-1150 and let them know you’re interested. Then they will text back asking why they should give you the 50,000.00 grant. So i did and they contacted me. They wanted my full name and address. Then my best friend called me and said they had asked for money up front. We both know for sure it was a scam. So i have now just been texting back and forth with the scammers trying to get as much information from them so they can be turned in. I had asked if there were any fees up front or taxes i had to pay and they said yes and sent me a text with their fees and the amounts of the grants i could receive. So i said i would send the $1600.00 so i could receive $90,000.00. They want me to go to Wal-Mart and do 2 store to store money transfers. One for $1000.00 and 1 for $600.00.
