Scam alert: $7,000 federal grant
I got a call this morning on my office phone from (209)759-4315 from someone offering a $7,000 federal business grant that didn’t have to be paid back. What a deal, huh?
Turns out that’s nothing more than a scam and an old one, in fact. That old chestnut was covered at length in this article.
The hook here is that the scammer offers $7,000 but you’ve got to send in a $200 processing fee before the grant will be released to you. That ought to set off a few red flags, eh?
Unlike some other scams I’ve reported on lately, this one isn’t aimed directly at attorneys.
