I know these ppl making money off ppl. I want my money I sent to India just recently. They ARE A SCAM. THEY SAID SEND $ Western Union. I did. Like an idiot. Cause I'm going through a tough time. So AI thought maybe my luck was changing, NOT. AFTER I sent the $ they picked it up & the next day said I had yo pay another fee, for a supposed block on the cash. So I thought. Went again? , stopped thought and called Western. UNION &sure enough went back to get my dough. I was taking a chance about to risk my. All, someone needs to track these ppl down & arrest them. I hope channel 5 , 2 or someone gets this story to the public. This is one of there limes " your money will be available 15 mins after you send money, to 2-4 hours,then back to 15 mins after,you send another western union.DON'T. FALL FOR THIS.
Yes, I do believe that this is a scam. I just spoke with a Kevin Johnson and he said for me to wire a $199.99 in order for me to receive the $7000. I told him that this was a scam and I would be cancelling my debit card and hung up on him. Please be careful. don't be a dummy like me.
I was called by these people and I tried to call back the number. It took two days for them to call me back and they did give me the information on there website www.mygrantes.com and the address in Washington DC the the address of 200 Independences ave., Washington DC 20201. I called the wester union 1-800-325-6000. They would like to get the information on where we are to send the money, but they did confirm it was a scam.
I'm glad that my husband found this site. Thank you for the information that was given. I hope my little bit of information helps also. I would love to know how they got my cell phone number.
i just got a phone call from these punks. couldn't understand where they said they were calling from. i feel like the us government would be in a hurry to get grant funding out to eligible recipients. the address they gave me (200 independence ave. washington dc) is the home of the united states department of health and human services. i confronted the man about the address and he hung up. they won't answer now.
Yepp this is a scam. This Indian dude refused to tell me how he got my Cell # AND my home address. He was pushy about getting my date of birth cause I could tell it was bogus. When they called it came up unknown on my caller ID so this number above was the callback he gave me for the "financial aid department". Don't fall for this my friends. God bless
This phone number is from the website Mygrants.com. They are call telling people that they are approved for a U.S. grant and all you have to do its western union them 199.99 and in return they will western union you your 7,000 U.S. grant. This is a scam! there company is basded out of India do not fall for it.
