And I’m not even a multi-millionaire banker! I haven’t paid $1.4M to remodel my office in at least a couple of years. Nor have I purchased high-priced prostitutes and charged them to my I’ve Tried That corporate card. And I haven’t paid Steve a 7-figure bonus since, like, NEVER. How did I qualify for this miracle of generosity? Why, just by being me, apparently.
I mean, I’ve never bought a $70 million corporate jet and don’t have any paid lobbyists running around the halls of Congress on my behalf. That’s why I was pleased but shocked to receive this in my e-mail today:
From: Free Grant Money
Hello Dave, [Joe observation: Dave?? Why can’t spammers get my first name right?]
President Obama is already handing out *BILLIONS* of dollars to regular people like you and me to stimulate” the economy. Don’t sit by and let someone else collect your money. There could be thousands available to you in as little as one week.
Because of the poor economic situation, getting government money has never been easier. Grants of millions of dollars are available now. Get Your *FREE* CD Today and let us show you how to get money back from the government.
This is a free-trial program so have days to look at the info (and get your money) before even paying for the kit.
Obviously, this is a limited time offer, do not wait until all the money is gone – get yours TODAY!
*Limited to one CD per household
YES! All my wildest dreams will come true! Is this legitimate? Is Pres. Obama really standing there with a check in his hand waiting for me to knock on the door to the oval office?
Free Government Grants? Not Likely
In other words, the same old song and dance. Sign up for a “free” CD (only $2.95 shipping and handling), and then get hit for up to $100 dollars in monthly mystery charges if I don’t cancel on time.
No one is going to bail you out except you. Don’t look for free government grants to solve your financial problems, and stay away from gimmick-filled programs like Free Grant Toolbox.
