C.D.B.G. Grant Program

  • Monetary Loss: $0
Facebook friend told me about the Grant Program that gives you grant money without any payback obligation. He sent me the name and web address that he used and got $45,000.00 cash from the fedX delivery the day after he filled out all the questions asked by the agent. Went through the process and I was to receive $50,000.00 as soon as I paid for the filing fees of $500.00. I could pay for the fees by giving him the authorization number from an Amazon Gift card. Big rush to get the card and send him the info so my check could be sent via fedX immediately after verification. Actually, this agent not only had his own internet address BUT had hacked into my friends Facebook account. I found out that my friend had no knowledge of this program and was not communicated any of this information to me. This Agent was working my friends facebook and his own web site at the same time. Agent is still looking for my $500.00 activation fee on both his account and my friends messenger account.
