SCAM ALERTby Louis Paquette Marketing Trainer, Affiliate Market
I was recently contacted in FACEBOOK Messenger by somebody I barely knew, about how I could receive a $50,000 grant from the U.S. government. Next, was told I'd be connected to some lawyer who would take all sorts of personal information to secure my grant.
My spidey senses immediately started to tingle. I don't know these people, it sounds too good to be true and I never divulge that sort of info unless I know who I am dealing with and know 100% that it's legitimate.
When a second stranger also contacted me out of the blue with the same trash talk; "Did you hear the good news?" it confirmed that this is going around and is to be avoided. The two people who contacted me were:
No doubt, their Facebook memberships have been hacked and used by scammers to recruit victims.
So, if either of these two or someone else you barely know, contacts you about the "good news" about the "Gradient Grant Community Outreach Support Program" - I'd block the person and report it to Facebook immediately.
