Grant Approval Specialists

How the scam works:

Your business is approached by a “grant writing specialist” with perhaps even fancy business cards or websites – they get your attention.

They tell you they can help you qualify for a $75,000 grant, as they know all the procedures to make a successful application. Charging you 5% of the grant as an application fee which you have to pay before they start the process, victims fall for this scam as they think 5% from the entire amount is a great deal.

How to avoid:

If you find yourself in this situation, tell them you are willing to pay 10%, but only after you are successful with the grant.

I keep getting calls telling me I won $ 7,130 in a government grant. They want me to purchase a "green dot" card at CVS & call them & they will put the money into that card.They didn’t ask for any other information about me. Is this a scam and, if so,how does it work? Please advise as I surely need the money. Thank you, Len Worman
