I just got a funny call today of a person informing me that the US Grant Department offers me a free 7000 $ grant for free I just have to call a person to arrange a Western Union transfer
A rather very boring attempt to scam.
However I think things like that should be reported and prosecuted.
Now I looked up this 7k scam and it is active since December 2011.
Of course the numbers dont work anymore just hours later.
But does anybody have a good tip for how to report this scam to agencies such as the FBI or consumer protection in the USA? I am from Germany and thus not very familiar with how things are run here in the USA.
