Many scammers use promises of government grant money in order to defraud individuals, reports the Federal Trade Commission. To safeguard themselves against grant scammers, people should never divulge their bank account information to strangers. Furthermore, people should know it is never necessary to pay any fees to access government grants or lists of grant opportunities.
