Complaint / review text:
I recieved a call and was told I was approved for a 7000 grant from a number in pennsylvania
(2679840330). Then I was transfered to a mark miller who told me that in order to receive this grant I had to wire 130.00 through western union to some one under the name of kavita anand. Once I sent the money he said I was to call him back with the confirmation number. Once I did that, I was told that someone would call me back from the federal reserve bank of new york within the next hour or so. I received a call from someone by the name of mark who claimed to be an employee of the federal reserve bank of new york. He them told me that in order to receive the 7000 dollars I was required to give a 375.00 security deposit in order to receive the 7000 and the 375 would be returned to me. He told me that I had to Mail the money to kavita anand in india and give him a call back. Once I did that, I called him back and he told me that the bank was closed and that he would call me back saturday morning and transfer the money to my account at 10.00. Well, saturday came and he didn't call. So I called him and he didn't answer. I called him to hours later and he answered and told me that I needed to pay 309.00 more dollars to get the money I already 7379.00 that was already due to me. It was then I realized that I shouldn't have to give money to get money. By then it was too late.
