I received a message on Facebook from an old friend referring me to the Global Funding Program. Whoever it was also knew her address. She said she paid the application fee of $800 to receive a grant in the amount of $6,500. She said she received the cash immediately by FedEx. She encouraged me to contact them. I did and they asked for personal information such as my name, address, and age. They also requested that I pay an application fee of $800. I then realized that this was a scam. Grants are supposed to be free, and there usually is no application fee required.
