Unfortunately, this is a total scam. You never have to pay a dime to collect grant money and any time you are told otherwise you can be sure you are not dealing with a real grant, but rather with an advance fee scam. Additionally, grants are not randomly awarded to the public at large. They are awarded to fund very specific endeavors determined to be in the greater public interest after a time consuming and complex application process. If you were going to get a grant, you would know about it well in advance. It would be the result intentional efforts on your part.

In the next days or weeks, be on the look out for similar "too good to be true" loan solicitations, "sweepstakes" winnings, and similar windfall type offers. These will be further scams perpetrated by the same individual contacting you now under a different guise. Scammers love to double back on potential victims like this with "followup scams" in the hope that, though they couldn't trick you the first time, they will trick you the next.

In the mean time, you would be wise to immediately cease further contact with this scammer and report the matter to the local police and FBI field office. You can locate your local FBI field office here.

I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.

If you do not require any further assistance, please be so kind as to provide a positive rating of my service so that I may receive credit for assisting you. Very best wishes moving forward.
