HUD Fraud Bulletin: Phony Grant Scams


Date Published: June 2016


This HUD Office of Inspector General bulletin alerts the public to phony grant scams. Beware of fraudsters who say you have been awarded a grant from HUD, but they need an upfront fee. HUD will never email or call to “award” you money. HUD has received complaints about fraudsters using the same scam to trick their targets into sending them “fees” so they can process grants for thousands of dollars.
