Type of a scam Government Grant
My wife received a friend request from a person that she had previously worked with. She was directed by this friend to text someone about a USAID GRANT that she was sure that my wife would qualify for. The person requested a photo of her License to be texted to them. They had her fill out a form electronically and told her that she was approved. At that point she explained everything to me and after a little research I let her know that it was obviously a scam. I tried calling the number that she had been texting and got no answer, however, within minutes I received a text message asking who I was, how I had gotten the number signed USAID GRANT. After, I let them know that I knew that it was a scam they proceeded to confirm this by cursing me.
