    U.S. Government Grants

    (I wasnt sure were to post this but...)

    I think i just recieved a grant but im not sure. Does anyone know the process of recieving a grant? They told me they were going to transfer the money into my bank account. (Wow just writing that scares me!) It was a 5,000 grant from the us gov. To spend on anything.

    Did you apply for a grant?


    If not run away! Run away and hide.

    Was it done through a third party? If it was close your bank account immediately.

    The person on the phone said i'd have 5,000 in my account by tommorow. And that the bank is going to charge me $29.95 as a processing fee.

    What im going to do is just take all my money and put it into my parents account and wait to see what happens and if necessary, make a brand new account.

    Hope i dodged the bullet with this one...

    Grants arn't like jury duty, the government doesn't just hand them out to anybody. There is something fishy about this.
