Scam Description

I got message in messenger and it was a friend asking if I applied for this grant . She gave me Bernard Charles and said he s on Facebook so of course the sucker I am I sent first payment of 500 dollars to proceed with processing fee . Then sent cash in mail . And kept saying going in next stage the needed 1200 more .then the 3 rd time I sent 3300 and final steep was another 3300 which I didn’t pay .so they keep sending messages that I can’t get my grant till next payment . Each payment was sent in cash. Still not know what to do but I’m hoping it’s a real grant and I ll still get my money. I asked for a return on.my money but of course they said I will get all money and grant returned after I pay the last 3300.
