I received a letter from an outfit which claims to be Cyber Grants Inc. with a Vancouver BC address and a Quebec phone number.
It also included a serial number and said, Attn: My Name, on behalf of Cyber Grants Inc. we are proud to announce that your grant in the amount of 50K dollars has been approved. As soon as the Federal and International administration fee of $2856.99 has been paid and our commission fee of $5, 000 deducted from your grant, a certified check in the amount of $45K will be forwarded to your mailing address.
Also included with the letter was a check made out to a bank in Torrance, California for the administration fee of $2856.99. Because the check looked authentic, I found myself wanting it to be real. My wife told me to get real.
The letter went on to request that I contact them immediately and one of their agents will verify my file to prevent any delay in receiving this grant. The letter was signed sincerely, Sue Foley and Jerry Foley, processing agent.
Thanks to the internet and this site, I recognize this for the scam that it is. I hope that through awareness we can put these crooks out of business permanently.
