Hey there folks, So I first got a call from 202-470-2490 stating I had been picked for a $10,200 government grant. Afterwards they gave me a confirmation code JV102. I was to provide this to the processor so they could place the money on my debit card. I needed to call 206-317-1435 and provide the above code. I called and was greeted by Christina Gomez she told me in order for me to get the money I needed to pay a $190 registration fee so that I would not be taxed or have to pay back the grant. She told me to purchase a greendot MoneyPak card and once I have this to call her back on extension 212. I called her back and gave her the number on the back of the card. She then told me that I would need to wait ten minutes before the funds would be ready. After waiting she then told me to finish the process I needed to contact the Federal Reserve Bank to finish the transaction. This number 646-583-2599 when I called this Ben Ramirez got on the line and verified my identity and then told me to call back in 15 minutes while the processing completed. I waited 15 minutes and called him back and then he told me he needed to check on the processing as there was something wrong with the transaction so I waited got disconnected twice but I kept calling back to check as they said that they did not disconnect me. After 2 more minutes he came back and told me that the funds could not be transferred to my bank because state to state transfer over $8000 requires PPI (Payment Protection Insurance) this would cost me another $600 that was to be placed on 2 greendot MoneyPak cards in $300 denominations. After losing the $190 I chose to play with him. I made up fictitious numbers and then played dumb as to why the funds weren’t on them. Finally I called Chritina back like she told me and let her know I got my money. Even though I did not I told her she could close my file now because I did and she sounded confused and then hung up on me. Please enjoy the story I hope this helps. thanks .
