I received 3 calls today concerning a $9,200 grant. I stayed on the line with the first gentleman for 20 minutes and got a confirmation code.
Then about an hour later I get another call about the same grant & I listen and stay on the line for an hour. He convinces me to buy a certain type of iTunes care & give him the info
