Bogus Grants

   

How it works:

 
  Scammer claims the victim has been selected to receive a grant
   
  Through the use of purchased list of names that are involved in certain activities (magazine subscriptions, etc.), the scammers can often convince the victim that the grant is for a project / subject matter that they are personally involved in 
   
  After being awarded the "grant", the victim is instructed to send money for processing or other fees
   
  Once a payment has been sent, more payments may be requests for additional "fees and taxes"
