I was contacted by a "friend" asking if i had ever heard of trust community grant program. That they would give me money to help pay my bills etc. She gave me the "agents" name on facebook and told me to contact them so I did. Unfortunately I had given my name and address to him before my radar in my head went off. The "friend" wanted me to let her know everything that was said etc and said to follow the instructions. Then came the give me $1000.00 for the delivery fee and you’ll receive $100,000.00 in 4 hours. I told the "friend" I didn’t have any money for the fee and she then offered to come up with half of the fee if I could get the other half, I told her I have no money, she then said if I could come up with $100 she’d cover the $900. I asked her how she’d get the money to the "agent" along with any money I could come up with and she told me she’d contact him and send it to him I’m guessing "her cc" or some such bs.Then they started asking about credit cards. My radar was going crazy so I told her if she’d front me the money I’d immediately give it back to her after I received the money 4 hours later. She went offline then the "other person" did too. Now she’s back and wanting me to get the credit card info from my husband. I told her that my husband said no but she keeps asking me for it. Thankfully I didn’t give her the cc info or any other info. I am disgusted that I almost fell for it. Please do something about her! I have her name as well.
