Type of a scam Government Grant
It was an Instant mesanger request that I should sign up for LCDS grant money. The IM was actually initiated through a relatives Facebook IM and about how he had just received $100K to help pay down some of his debts. And of course, had to offer up $1000 first, but had received the $100,000 in cash promptly. He verified his lawyer and bank said it was legitimate money. In the IM, my (alleged) relative gave me a phone number and contact name to txt my information to see if I could be awarded money also. I only made a few txts to this person who, after only giving my name and address, said I was awarded some amount. But required DOB and more before continuing on. My txt conversation with this person stopped there.
But the FB IMs continued til I realized it couldn’t be my relative.
