Type of a scam Government Grant

IMF texted my boyfriend. It was through Facebook, Thomas Manson was giving away $50,000 grants if people would send him a $1000. Somebody hacked into a friend's FB account and used him to say he had done it and a grant was dropped off at his door. He wanted him to get a card and get it activated and give him the number and the money would be transferred to the card.

Then they proceeded to repeat the first step of the application I got them nervous that they thought I was someone else LMFAO!!! So be vary wary people I got lucky this time Maybe my story will help someone pick up on a scam I I did and bust them in the act of it all

Type of a scam Phishing

I have a Facebook account, Got a call from several of my relatives and face book friends. Asking if I new a company named IMF with a solicitor named Oliver Curtis. He is using my picture from face book and contacting friends and family pretending to be me and saying I received free money $150,000 dollars that I do not have to pay back and would they like to do this also. I tried to contact face book but I do not have my password and used a previous email when I opened the account. Could not find a good phone number for them also. To my knowledge no one lost money yet.

Type of a scam Government Grant

Received a message from a friend of mine telling me that he knew I was having a hard time financially, and that the IMF helped him out, and gave me a phone number to get a hold of a grant officer to see if they could help me too. Said it was totally free, but they only worked through text messages. And not to say anything to anyone for safety of the courier who was going to bring my package....turns out they wanted a "delivery fee", then after that it was the courier got intercepted by the IRS and they wanted more...and told me I owed back taxes, which I knew was a complete that point I knew for sure it was a scam. Then talked to my friend in person about it, and he knew nothing about it ..

My sister-in-law sent me a text. We rarely talk. She told me about these retired, semi-retired, disabled, hearing, old, widow, divorced. Asked if I got mail from them. She then sent me the link for the "online claiming agent"....cane with a picture of John cannon. She was very anxious that I click on the link. Said my name was on the "win list". Asked my son about it, it sounded weird, he agreed wi me about being a scam. I did not click on the link, but others might.

I received a Facebook message from a friend telling me about the $50,000.00 she received for a one time payment of $600.00. “She” sent me a phone number to a private attorney to text them NOW. The wording and grammatical errors alerted me because she’s a school teacher and would never make those mistakes. I told her I would give her a call at home to discuss it. I didn’t hear anymore from “her”.
