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"

Someone on messenger acted like my mother even used her account on messenger to give me a website saying they were giving grants for people in need when I contacted the person he asked that much a questions said he was filling out my application then he said I qualified. Then he asked for money $5,000 would get you 50,000 10,000 would get you $100,000. The all the way up to 50,000 would get you a million dollars that's when I knew I was being defrauded but what really bothers me is somebody has hacked in to my mother's account on messenger to lure me to that person. And it is clearly a scam. The person who acted like my mother gave me a website to contact which was a person I'll give you the website http/

Well it all started about a month ago. One of my Church sisters ask me about a free government grant that I really knew nothing about. Well I went for it but not being told about the money that I had to pay out. All together $3,000 dollars and yet no money . Suppose to be free. Now this the catch here, I called American Express to see the balance on the last gift card which was $500.00 and found out the card had already been used for a purchase at The Coach Factory in Jacksonville Fla. I can’t believe how deceitful people really are.
