The wife has been hit with this scam twice now on Facebook Messenger.

They initially startup a conversation talking about how your day is or your family. Then jump to “So just browsing the web trying to find out how to spend my federal grant money, have you heard about it?” which the wife is smart enough to know what is going on at this point and asks, “remind me again how we know each other, because I am checking that this is not a scam” no response.

Be careful out there, be smart!
