I have received the same letter saying I was chosen for a home improvement and business grant. I have tried calling the #1-289-892-3265 and there is no answer. is this true or false.
I GOT THE SAME EXACT LETTER.....THE CHECK SAYS VEG-OIL ON THE LEFT UPPER SIDE....THE LETTER SAYS LIBERTY HOLDINGS AND BUSUNESS MANGEMENT,INC.
I have received the same letter from Trolux home and bussiness management, Inc. The check for 3950.30 is enclosed and they have said to call the 289-892-4311 no but cannot get thru.
I didn't know what to make of it but after reading all the posts here it seems it is a scam. Anybody find out more informatin pls. advise. This has been issued as an international business/home improvement grant.
This is so uncool.
SEE MY RESENT POST CONCERNING THIS LETTER. FIRST OF ALL NOTIFICATION OF GRANTS OR WINNINGS ARE ALWAYS VIA CIRTIFIED LETTER. THERE ARE NO UPFRONT PAYMENTS TO PAY TAXES, TAXES ARE PAID DIRECTLY TO THE GOVERNMENT BY YOU. DON'T LET THESE UNCOTH SOB'S RUIN YOU FINANCIALLY! REPORT IT TO THE COMPANY ON THE TOP LEFT OF THE CHECK (EG: ELECTGROLUX..ECT..) BEST WISHES
THIS IS A SCAM, MY 18YROLD DAUGHTER JUST GOT ONE OF THOSE LETTERS AND CALLED THE GUY THEODORE REECE, HE TOLD HER TO DEPOSIT THE CHECK AND SEND HIM AND ONLY HIM OVER 1900.00 BACK VIA MONEY GRAM. DON'T DEPOSIT OR CASH THAT CHECK. REPORT IT TO ELECTORLUX!
Did you have any luck yet on if it is real or not?
Hopeful its real.
I recieved the same letter and I cant seem to get in touch with anyone. I did apply for grant because I am in school. One grant had the option finacial goals on the application. I selected personal, but there was an option for upgrading houses. Maybe they get your information threw some type of grant you have already applied for.The check came from CitiBank so I am going to check threw them. Also go check with Better Business and see what they can tell us. Happy hunting, I persolaly hope and pray it is real!
i got the same letter! i called the bank and they said there was a block on the check and they couldn't give me any info. and i called the 289 number and talked to someone who told me i needed to deposit the money in to my account and pull the fee money and moneygram it back to them. it sure sounds like a scam to me... i know there is plenty of them out there with fake checks and what not. when i was looking for a roommate online i got SEVERAL emails of potential roommates claiming to be out of the country and were being relocated for work they told me they would be sending me a cashiers check for deposit and their entire stay... once i received i was supposed to deposit it in to my bank account and only keep the deposit costs and 1st months rent, the rest of the money i was supposed to wire back to them for their traveling expenses to get here. How the scam works is that you just deposited a fraudulent check in to your account and they don't realize its fake until a couple weeks later (after you already pulled money out and sent it back to the "potential roommate")... and now you are held responsible for the missing funds.
i got the same letter as you all, except when i called the # on the check it really had the funds in there. i am too scared to cash it, besides they want you to cash it in YOUR account. that sounds funny to me. then after all of that they need you to send the $1950 via money gram ONLY to leslie gonzalez. wierd, but i want $37,000. my next step is look up the banks # and call them
I got the same letter stating I won the grant. I took it to a bank and they told me that is was a fake. They even called the bank listed on the check and they could not verify the funds and said the client had a block on their account. So if anyone willing to try take the check to any bank and ask one of the branch specialist to check the number and see if they get the same answer
i got a letter stating that "my Business/Home Improvement Grant of $37,000.00 was deposited into an escrow account pending claim." enclosed was a check for $3,950.30 to pay "fees and taxes". don't really know what to think about it but im thinking it cannot be good after all the other comments i have read. will call tomorrow to find some facts.
got the same letter said that i needed to respond by the 2nd of December. No one answered during business hours but I got someone when I called at 7:30am and got an asian guy well sounded that way. He said to cal lback in an hour when they were open. I am trying to do research on the company but no luck so far. Not sure if this is a scam or not.
hay i go the same letter. I keep calling the number but no one answers. can some one tell me if this is a scam or not. i called the bank and they varified that the check is good. im not sure if this is a scam or not
Not a call, but a letter stating that I won a grant and it included a check for $3950.30 for "fees and taxes". I am supposed to call the above number to "activate my account". Is this a scam?
