foreigner dude called from 000-000-0000 and said i was selected for paying taxes and not getting arrested in the last 6 months...gave me a id# and this 202-621-0436 # to call which didnt answer (i believe because when given the payment option i chose cash, of course, which makes absolutely no sense, for the gov. to pay me cash)...also they had my name misspelled same as a secret shopper scam i got in the mail from Goldman & Associates 1164 Broadway, Suite 204, NY,NY...oddly enough the check was mailed from Canada PO box 4056, Station A, Toronto, ON M5W1L8....and the check is from a Star Financial Bank in Ft. Wayne, IN routing# "-055548"- l:074901672l: "-510 15795"-.......so they are definitely connected somehow because they both have the exact misspelling of my name. I hope you can use this info.

Disgusting that this exists to prey on people who are foolish enough or trusting enough to believe in garbage like this. And they said they are US Government Grant agency. Cleary they are in India and the question is how many foolish people have fallen for to this -- wiring $250 to some black hole somewhere. Where's the watchdog to shut this down?

I have just received a call from an unknown number which has directed me to (202)621-0436 and I spoke with Matthew Rogers(?), who asked me to Western Union $250 in order to claim my $7K grant in which I am "entitled." Well, I said that I would further check into this and get back with him, due to just being awakened with the phone call, and he was pretty cool about it... Anyway, i Googled the phone number and found pages such as this, which has prompted me to call a legitimate US grant office, and I was told that NO grant office will solicit you- so please do not fall for it! You should report these callers to the Office of Inspector General @ (800)447-8477. You may be eligible for the same grant $, however, you can apply legitimately at www.benefits.gov for personal financial assistance or small business funding, etc. or @ www.grants.gov for charitable funding, such as starting a museum or hospital, for example. (I'm sure there are other similar sites to apply, but these were the only two sites I was informed of.) According to grant.gov's customer service representative, "9 out of 10" agencies will NOT ask you for a fee of any sort. So please take precaution & I hope this helped:)

This scam is still going forward. Endorse Diane's advice to call Dept. of Health and Human Services Inspector General at (800) 477-8477 to report the scam. By no means should anyone give them any personal information what so ever, not even your name. Scammer identified himself as "Jake Ricardo" from the "Federal Grants Department" but could not identify which Federal Agency that department belong to, but he claimed to work in the "HHH" building in D.C. The Hubert H. Humphrey Building is the Headquarters for the Department of Health and Human Services. Any employee would know this and properly identify themselves if calling on behalf of the Department of Health and Human Services. Federal grants also do not require a fee for filing. Further, the U.S. Treasury Department does not use "Western Union" as their primary means of transfering money. The U.S. Government does not ask for money in order to award grant money; this should have been a warning sign for anyone who still might have been on the phone with them that long. "Jake" and the others I spoke with all had central Asian (Indian) accents. They also lacked any comprehension of basic federal office policies and procedures, nor had any command or knowledge of basic federal lexicon. This is clearly a scam, even if the perpetrators are pathetic in its execution, but they have crossed a line in perporting to be agents of the Federal Government in perpetrating their fraud. All encounters with these grifters should be documentes and reported to Federal Authorities as quickly as possible.

They called me and told me I would receive a 7,000 free government grant. I couldn't understand the lady talking to me very well. I asked why I would be excepted for a grant when I haven't applied for one. She just kept telling me that I hadn't filed bankruptcy and do not have a criminal record so I qualified. They gave me a confirmation number and the telephone number above to call back to confirm... thought I'd check it out and found this sight.

Well they are still at it. I rec'd a Call this Morning telling me I had been awarded a $7000.00 Government Grant. All I had to do was go to my local Western Union Store and pay them $280.00 Fully Refundable .. in order to have the Federal Reserve Bank wire my money including the $280.00 refunded back to me. SCAM BIG TIME .. The phone # 202 621 0436 is actually a Cell phone and most likely untraceable. I filed a complaint repost with The Federal Trade Commission Consumer Report at 1 877 382 4357 and also with my Governmers Consumer Protection Office in Georgia. Ph # 1 800 869 1123 .. I suggest anyone else getting these kind of calls do the same by reporting these scam calls to the agencies I listed above. DON'T FALL FOR THIS .. IT IS A SCAN TO GET YOUR MONEY & INFORMATION.

I received a call from a " claimed representative" with the government for U.S. Grants. The man stated, " That I was selected along with 700 other individuals to receive a $ 7000.00 U.S. Dollar Grant." He continued to ask me my name, address, age, which was to verify that I am the claimed person receiving the grant today. He continued to explain why I received the grant along with the other 699 individuals. Basically, we supposedly were chosen for being law abiding, tax paying citizens with clean records and it was important that this claimed grant was to be used for the betterment of our community example; ( for my business, home improvement, education etc.) Then this pseudo representative asked how I wanted to receive my Grant money? I had three choices which were; 1) Visa credit card 2) Master card or 3) Cash. He continued to inform me this money was not to be used for gambling, drug use (yes, he did say this) , and so on. Anyway, after verifying all information he then gave my a Grant number and a a Sr. Acct Mgr phone number which I was to call and give the Grant number in order for them to release my claimed Grant money. He wished me a great day congratulated me and then wished me a Merry Christmas and concluded the phone call stating he was calling from U.S. Grant in Washington D.C. I immediately went to Google and placed this number in pressed enter and yup... Low and behold it is as I suspected a SCAM. I must confess I was hoping it was true but deep within I knew otherwise. Oh POOH! Be careful folks and Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year too:O)

I received a call from 000-000-0000 and I was told that I had been chosen out of thousands to receive a grant of 7,000 dollars. The woman gave me an Identification Number and a phone #:202-621-0436 and said to call it to collect my money. I called and then I was told to pay a 290 dollar processing which I would get back after. I told her that I was sorry because I could not believe her, and that my gut was telling me this was a scam. She became furious and started to scream at me. She then hung up. I called again, the same lady answered and pretended not to know my voice and said to ask for a catherine jones that she was my processing agent. How did she know this if I did not give her any of my information. So I call again to mess with them and do as I was told. I told the woman I could not pay the 290 fee, and she hung up on me but before she did she said to call her when I did. Super Shady!!!!!

I received several calls from 000-000-0000 and finally answered one. It seems the government has a $ 7,000 grant for me and I never need to repay it. WOW, I like Osama Obama better every day, nor I'm finally being treated like one of his people! They asked to confirm my address and telephone, age, and marital status. All of which the government would know. Them I simple needed to call their processor at 202-621-0436. I called the NJ State Police and they said to contact my local police. See the government doesn't do anything, This can't be real!

This number202-621-0436, called me and said that I was to get 7000.00 in grant money, but first I had to pay 290.00. This is a scam. If the grant money was for me, then I would not have to pay anything for it. This is a scam!!!!!! please do not give any banking information to these people. They are just out to take your money. I ask her if this was scam and she got loud with me and hung up
