The IMF does not make grants to private individuals. If you have between contacted about obtaining an IMF grant and are required to pay an upfront fee then you are the target of a scam. Do not continue the correspondence. They are criminals trying to steal from you.

I attempted to accept your phone call request and received the following message:
"Payment for this service failed, please do not fulfill yet. We will attempt to reach this customer to fix the situation."
If you can resolve the problem (it is usually a matter of confirming with your bank or credit card that the charge is authorized) I look forward to speaking with you.
Otherwise, I am happy to continue online with you.
