I few years ago, I received a phone call from a person who enthusiastically told me that I has won a FREE Government Grant. With the FREE Money I could pay off debt, stat a business and on an own. It was a program set up by some government agency. I’m not going to re-tell the story as I’ve already written about it and you can click the link to read. it.
Well the other day I received this e-mail
Needless to say that this looked familiar. Ronald Regan said ” The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: ‘I’m from thegovernment and I’m here to help'”. While I think the Federal Government does do a lot of good, there are many people who are often fooled by these scams because they are aware of how much money they government does waste. But know they Congress does waste lots of money, but usually entities apply for it, and Congress grants it to those entities. Government grants are not freely given to individuals. They only individual grants I know of are educational grants for students, but these come from money allocated to the Department of Education. Grants are given to organizations and corporations who apply for them.
Is the government giving away free money….NO!
Are there organization that give money to help people..YES.
What is likely the case… They want your money by asking for a FEE for this FREE money, or they want your personal information for identity theft.
WHAT TO DO!
- Research the offer or company.. google them
- Report them to the FTC if necessary
- Make them as SPAM
