Type of a scam Government Grant
This man has been emailing my dad to have him fill out forms for a government. He is asking for almost 3k as a fee for filling out grant papers.
He has a form with social security numbers and a form for a transfer of beneficiary funds.
Here is an email exchange:

Subject: Re: Grant
again sorry for the delayed response, but note that your online profile has been fully updated and please find the attached application forms to fill, sign and return back to me for further processing and please note that the application fee of ( $2850) must be paid in full before your application forms can be submitted to the grant board for approval. once you get these forms correctly filled and signed, please email them to me for further processing and just as you know i recently returned from a grant summit that was held in Australia, this means as a united states citizen you can not only apply for united states grant you can also apply for grant funding even from the Australian authorities and other countries involved in the grant funding program. this means more chances of individuals getting their grant application approved.
please be informed that details/instruction on how your application fee should be paid will reach you once i receive the scanned copy of the documents attached to this email.
hope i hear soon from you,
Jim T Fletcher.

I did send you my dL on a separate email. Let’s go at the $900,000.00 mark. I hope I can sign and email the form back to you electronically or wire it to you or hand deliver if necessary.
