• Aug 17, 2023 Scam Report Entered on behalf of victim by Employee: They introduced themselves as the gov't entity agent Donald Scott in charge of the grant program. They say they would like to tell the victim about the program that might be able to help through tough economical positions. The victim wouldn't have to pay the grant back. Was sent a NIH document that asked for all personal information including social security, private financials, and other info. Was advised to pay collateral $1500 up front to receive the grant payment and to keep grant money secret and to not let others know.

I was contacted by someone I thought was a high school friend via Facebook Messenger. Initially, there was small talk about a hospital stay and daily life. A few days went on and then there was talk about how he got his financial life turned around by The Worker's Compensation Board & Lawrence Foundation. He explained that they offer grants to those individuals that are retired as well as other categories. All I had to do was search Facebook for TheCompensationCenter.1 and then follow the page. After that submit an email to the one on the page asking for an application. Once I submitted the email I was contacted by someone identifying themself as Anthony Sebastian the online representative from the Worker’s Compensation Board in association with the Lawrence Foundation Outreach Program. He explained what the board did: The Worker’s Compensation Board in association with the Lawrence Foundation was established in mid-2000. We make both program and operating grants and do not have any geographical restrictions on our subsidy. Nonprofit organizations that qualify for public charity status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or other similar organizations are eligible for the relief funds.

The Worker’s Compensation Board in association with the Lawrence Foundation works to expand opportunities in the community. We offer Grant-Making to support Family-planning, Individual use, environmental, education, human services and More.... I filled out the application with just a few items, including Name, address, and annual salary, and had to upload the front and back of my driver's license. After submitting he followed up with another email that wanted 3 questions answered: Who told you about The Worker’s Compensation Board & Lawrence Foundation Outreach Program ?

What is your reason of contacting The Worker’s Compensation Board & Lawrence Foundation Outreach Program ?

The funds which will be giving to you by The Worker’s Compensation Board & Lawrence Foundation Outreach Program, what will you use it for ?

After submitting the answers, I was approved for a grant of my choosing.

I tried a wire transfer, but that didn't go through. In my comments, I added The Lawrence Foundation. This was rejected by Evolve Bank. I then had to switch to CashApp which had delivery limits. Eventually, I sent the required amount plus a $50 fee for a total of $2550.00. After that, I had to submit funds to cover insurance on delivery. $7999.99. Each time I was reaching out to the fake friend asking if he had to do this too. He explained that he did and not to worry as the funds will be in your hand within 72 hours. After sending the limit on CashApp I was instructed to send the remaining balance via a bank transfer.

there were so many red flags that I missed that I could kick myself for not doing a better job of research. My fake friend got the middle initial of the real person wrong, the date of birth wrong (both year and month) and just a few posts talking about this money-available option. The agent, Mr. Sabastion also had a bunch of red flags. Why did he use an AOL account for this organization? The Facebook page has no comments, just copy and paste stories from the actual "Lawrence Foundation". The page itself TheCompensationCenter.1 - Why the point 1? The Lawrence Foundation website explains that scammers are using their site for information to set up fake websites. As of this submission, I am still getting emails from Mr. Sabastion asking for the remaining money,
