an extremely accented scammer(either german or swiss, i cant really tell them apart) called me today and said that the federal united state government selected me and seventeen hundred other citizens to receive a grant of 9700 dollars to be spent on anything i choose(!) because i am a good citizen (lol) who has paid taxes on time (double lol) and never declared bankruptcy (ok tru) so could he pleass confirm some identifying information?
it was a bit creative, i never heard that one before, but i guess he failed to remember that the federal government will never over their dead bodies voluntarily give you money. you need to seek out the money you are owed and demand it while trudging through a mile of tangled red tape and even then you might not get it. the federal government of the united states will never. EVER. seek you out to give you money.
