    Received message from a friend so I thought through messenger, stating that there was a home care grant available for disabled, retired, or unemployed, asking for information, stating that I qualify, get money in 12 hours, send $1000.00 for a fee, application processing, friends states that she already got her money, and she thought she'd let me know about this, gave agents name and contact info, they state that they are from United States department of people's compensation appeals board page. I called a supposed friend from the messenger message and got no answer, I waited till the next day and called the actual real contact number and she said she did not contact me.

    I'm sorry that I didn't stop and think more about this before I sent personal information. This is a scam and I wish I knew what else to do to help stop this

    Is the Bill and Melinda Gate Program Fund legitimate?

    • September 21, 2019 at 1:16 PM by info

      There is a legit one, but there are a lot of imposters, like the one above, who are asking potential victims to send them money in the name of the charity.

      But, never send money, personal and financial information to anyone who claims to be a from the Bill and Melinda Gate Program.

    I received a text message from a former co-worker who said she had good news for me and asked if I heard about USDPCAD. I responded that I knew it was a scam and she was not my former co-worker. All conversation stopped after that. People, please do your homework

    • May 18, 2019 at 7:19 PM by an anonymous user from: Atlanta, Georgia, United States

      Is this called the United States people compensation financial board page. There is a guy going by the name agent Jimmy smith. The phone number is from California. He saying that he can get grant money. He emails me asking for my name and other info. Anyone else heard of this.

      • May 18, 2019 at 9:21 PM by info

        It is a scam, do not be fooled. Once you are asked for personal information and money, it is a scam.

    Hi, I got a message from my friend saying she got the money and she see my name on list. So she sent me the link to confirm and claim my money.

      It is a scam, the person is not your friend, just someone impersonating your friend. Call your friend via telephone to verify.

    My wife just received a txt from a supposed friend.

    She was told that her friend had received $50,000 from the US Department of People Compensation Program and that she was sharing this info with my wife.

    She was referred to a person named...get this "Larry Smith".

    The phone number was 203-408-0684.

    I'm doing a reverse phone look-up but even the lookup company is having hard time tracing it. A major scam. Will these never end!

    I just received a message about this from an old friend who I haven't talked to in years.

    When I googled it and found out it was a scam, I told "my friend" to tell me how he knew me.

    (Contacted me on Messenger.)

    Of course they instantly quit responding.

    She is a widow age approx. 65 and indicates that funds are available for disabled, self employed, retired. She has provided me with a phone number...Is this a valid program
