I received a letter with a check in the amount of $4,930 today, May 3. The letter states that I had been randomly selected for a home improvement grant of $39,000 and it was deposited into an escrow account pending claim. The check of $4,930 is a deduction from my total grant money to assist in paying the necessary fees and taxes for this claim which is a mandatory legal requirement and serves as a verification method to establish the legitimacy of my claim. I was asked to contact my Claim Manager before cashing the check. The letter states there is $35,850 disbursed to me as a final cash settlement but will remain in their custody until I pay the necessary fees and taxes. Once they receive my payment, I will receive a second check being my final Award settlement within 3 to 5 business days by courier delivery. Of course, if it sounds too good to be true it most likely is. So I started my research on this so called grant money and immediately found it on usacomplaints.com website. I've called the number on the letter and it's a recording asking me to leave my name and number for a return call. Something needs to be done to stop this before some poor gullable person falls prey to this scam. Believe me when I say the letter and the check looks absolutely authentic and I can totally see many people cashing it only to find out later they've lost everything that was in their bank account.
