Definition Edit

In the Economic stimulus scam, the victim receives an unsolicited telephone call regarding fraudulent "government stimulus money." The recorded voice message reportedly sounds very much like President Obama discussing alleged government funds available for those who apply. Victims are warned that the offer is only available for a limited time and are instructed to visit the websites or to receive their money. These sites require victims to enter Personally identifiable information after which they are directed to a second page to receive notification of eligibility. Upon completion of an online application and payment of $28 in fees, victims are guaranteed to receive a large sum of stimulus money, but they never do.
