I dont know if I should believe this,I was selected from the us fed govt, I just recieved a grant of 8,000 dollars from the US Fed Govt. He said I'll will be recieving this in about 8 to 10 days, I could use this how ever I want, Business, school, bill, etc. Now, the other thing is I have to pay $250 dollars to recieve this, is this some type of spam or joke. I just need a little advice from this fourm. Can someone who recieved or registerd grants please help me. Explain if this is indead real and not a hoax.

Doesnít sound right. You need to send him $250.00 to receive a grant, donít think so. Scam, scam, scamÖ Ask him to deduct the $250.00 from the total grant amount and forward the balance to you. lol

Definitely a scam.

Here is some free money! Just send us YOUR money and we will send you the "free" money later. wink ...wink...

Did you even apply for a grant?


I would report this to the fraud department of your nearest law enforcement organisation. These are the types of people who scam little old ladies.
