This is a very horrible thing that people can prey on people in this type of way and something needs to be done about it immediately especially this time of year it’s very heart-wrenching.

  • The same thing happened to me today. It all sounded a bit far fetched. When I read the instructions and saw I needed to pay $10,000 for a grant of $200,000 that was my first clue that it’s a scam. So I googled Gradient Give Back Foundation and found your detailed description. Thanks for the heads up.

  • Is this Teresa Taylor, who claims to be from SSA? I was sent her info from someone who is on my FB. I was leery to begin with, and mentioned having been scammed before. She claimed she could prove it was real, but only asked me a few questions. I only gave her info that wouldn’t have an effect on my bank account or SS. When she wanted a photo of my drivers license, I stopped pursuing it.
