IT'S A SCAM!!! DON'T FALL FOR IT!!!
I got a call from "UNKNOWN NUMBER", a guy named Alex CRUZ (sounded Indian not Mexican). CRUZ congratulated me in winning a $7,800 grant from the U.S. government. CRUZ Stated that the money could be used for college, car repairs, books, home repair....etc. However, not gambling or any illegal activity like drugs. CRUZ even threw me a "curb ball" by asking me how I would spend it. CRUZ was extremely persistent and told me that if I was to collect the above mentioned sum I needed to deposit $200 into the nearest Western Union. CRUZ also gave me the following information to verify his validity: Badge number SRC5891, address, and TELEPHONE NUMBER (202) 657-5251. The address given was (200 Independence Avenue, Southwest 3H Building, Washington D.C. 20201) this address is real, but not for the Federal Government Grant Department, it belongs to the Health and Human Resources Department. Being cautious and skeptical in such good offer, I looked up the number that they gave me and it took me here. Then I saw everyone else's comments.
CRUZ was persistent and asked me if there was a Western Union near my place, I told him "Yes". CRUZ told me the Western Union (WU) process and told me "NOT TO DISCLOSE ANY OF THE INFORMATION OR TRANSACTION TO ANYONE". He told me the same line about 5 times.
that's when My RED flag alert activated!!! Everyone needs to know if the government is giving money for free. Why so much SECRECY???? The first instructions were that upon getting to a WU, I call CRUZ back at 202-657-5251 and they would give me the address and the recipient. Then, I am to fill out the form and deposit the money, into an account, after which I give him the 10-digit access code. CRUZ uses the code to verify who I am, then, within 20 minutes, he gives me another 10-digit access code which I use to access my $8,000. "Here's the catch...the 10-digit code that I give him gives him access to my $200 from any Western Union, so he can pull it out, wait the twenty minutes for the cash to clear and for him to CLEAR OUT, then he laughs at me and I never see the $8000 or my $200 again".
30 Minutes later, same "UNKNOWN NUMBER" called me wanting to speak with me. The person on the other line sounded like an anglo.
IIT'S A SCAM, DON'T FALL FOR IT!!!!!
