Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
NO, any grant or loan requiring you to pay money up front is known as an advance fee scam. There is no grant if you have to send them money up front, they are simply taking your money. There also are no grants for someone being honest and working with their family, that is another part of the same scam. DO NOT send them a penny and if you charged it to a credit card call and report the scam immediately. Those numbers are spoofed numbers (computer generated) and come to nothing. This is a very common scam we get numerous times a week and I too have been called and offered such a grant and of course they hang up on you when you tell them to take their $200 from the grant money you are getting.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
