Email from David Cook. He told me he was from the United States Dept. of Health and Human Servies. In the email he told me that I would receive cash money. He said it was approved by the Internal Monetary Funds Board Members. He sent me an email stating that the FBI has approved it.

I think this maty be a scam. On Facebook he is from a government organization in Page County. It states it is coming from DHHS. he told me it was a grant. FedEx would deliver the cash reward. I am not sure if this is a scam or not. He also stated he did not want me to contact anyone about this.

The scammers offered to help find grants for my nonprofit organization. The scammers did not offer any support and I attempted to cancel the card, to stop the charges, however, they started charging a new card directly through my bank account.

I was approached on FB by someone impersonating one of my friends, claiming she got $50,000 in grants from CFE. She then gave me a link to someone on FB named Christine Quinn to submit a friend request to see if I was eligible for any grants from CFE. Which I did, and then Christine Quinn started a FB chat asking for me to give her information about myself. I immediately knew it was a scam and that my friend's account had been duplicated/hacked. Shortly after that the Christine Quinn profile disappeared off FB, but the hacked account is still there. I have attempted to upload multiple screen shots of this, but can't tell if you will get all of them.

The Facebook lady was Kay Hedrick she said this Briggs could get me a grant to help me out it just seems too good to be true

- Houston, TX, USA

They would help you apply for a grant like a rebuild or establish or hard ship grant, if you were approved they would verify your identify you through your facebook account and go into your setting and change your password along with your email address and hold your account hostage till you pay your bank fees etc... once you find this out it is to late and they will not release the information for you to login even if you do not want the loan/grant money. They say "that is not how this process works"
