Beware of "Federal Government Selected 1500 Citizens to be Awarded a $9000 Grant" Scam

Beware of "Federal Government Selected 1500 Citizens to be Awarded a $9000 Grant" Scam

Scammers are calling people and telling them that they were selected for a grant valuing $9,000 by the Federal Government. The amount may change. Please note that this is a scam and there is no $9000 government grant. The scammers will ask you to send money via Western Union, MoneyGram, Prepaid Debit cards like MoneyPak, or ask you for your credit card information, which they claim they will need for the payment of the processing fees or to prevent you from paying taxes.

Please continue below.

Never send money to someone who asks you to make payments via Western Union, MoneyGram, Prepaid debit cards, or give your credit card information to someone over the phone, or send it in an e-mail message.

Always remember this golden rule:
Once you are asked to send money in order to receive money, it is a scam.
