Type of a scam Government Grant
I received the following instant message from someone posing as my friend Rhonda Bompers. She asked me if I heard about the IMF poverty alleviation & gov grant awarding money to some set of lucky winners that apply for it. I told her that I never heard of it how does that affect her?
The person posing as Rhonda that it is a program that help those who need assistance and paying for bills, buying a home, starting their own business, going to school, or even helping raise their children with old and retired people.
She said that she got $50,000 delivered to her when she applied for the IMF poverty alleviation and you don’t have to pay it back, you can also apply too.
She told me that the IMF Agent name was Christopher Wisdom. She said that he was the one who help her with getting the grant money. She told me that he is a good and honest person and she provided me his private number (6464813658) so that I could apply.
I contacted this Christopher Wisdom by who asked me to provide the following information:
Name, address, telephone number, marital status, gender, email address.
Retired US Army Disabled Veteran and Retired Construction Inspector
I sent the above information by email to [email protected]
Christopher Wisdom told me that I qualified for the grant but I would have to send in 750.00 dollars to cover to pay for delivery fee and that I would receive my money in the next 24 hours.
I knew then that this was a scam and I told the person that I was going to report this conversation to the FBI.
