Lady with a thick accent from the "U.S. Treasury" informing me that I was one of 1500 people selected for a $9000 "loyal citizen" grant. She kept asking for my bank account # to transfer the funds. When I asked for a check instead, she hung up on me.

Same here. $9,000 grant. The only thing different was I told him I was in town and didn't have my debit card with me. Told him to call back in one hour. He called back and gave me a grants info number of PC162. He told me to call William Watts at 202-697-9846. I did, with no answer. (William Watts must have been in the bathroom.)
I love playing with these people especially when they can't speak good english. I acted like I was all excited and thanked him several times.LOL

I've been called by (202) 210-0054 several times during the tail-end of March, and again today (24 April 2013). As many thousands of people have already experienced, I too was told that I was chosen for a a nine-thousand dollar grant from the Federal Government. Each call was essentially the same pitch. Today, I had had enough. I reverse searched the number and discovered that it's a Sprint-Nextel cell phone from the Washington DC area. I contacted Sprint and informed them that one of their customers was using their service to defraud the naive and gullible into giving up their bank account numbers. I also informed the customer service rep that since an active customer of theirs was using their service to defraud people, that Sprint-Nextel has a responsibility to investigate and deal with it. I further explained that if Sprint-Nextel didn't deal with their fraudulent end-user, that the many thousands of people who have either been a victim of their customer (using their service), that there might be grounds for a class-action lawsuit against Sprint-Nextel. I then asked the customer service rep to forward me to their management team. After consulting (someone), the rep. demurred, and referred me to their fraud "website" - www.mobileabuse@sprint.com Don't bother going there. I tried. I couldn't access it without a Sprint account. I was totally pissed. I then back-doored the rep by googeling "Sprint legal department" and found something useful: https://www.sprint.net/index.php?p=contacts_home That website contained (near the bottom of the page) a promising morsel of information. At the bottom of the page is listed something called Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) Enforcement. I then called the number they had listed which was : 800-232-3458. Their hours are M-F 9am - 6pm EST. In case you want to email Sprint-Nextel's Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) Enforcement center, you can email them at: abuse@sprint.net

Let's get these people who are abusing the Sprint-Nextel Acceptable Use Policy by defrauding people through the use of Sprint-Nextel's phone service. I'm sure that if enough of us contact Sprint-Nextel about the fraudulent activities of one of their customers, they'll do something about shutting these punks down and turning them over to law-enforcement.

Just received a call on my cell from this number 202-210-0054 and showed up as calling from DC. Male with a heavy accent indicated that I had been awarded a 9000.00 grant from the US government that I didn't have to pay back. He then paused since I was completely silent up until this point and asked if I knew how this was possible. I told him sounds too good to be true and it probably was and hung up on him. Immediately blocked the number and went online and saw these postings.

Man with thick accent called to tell me I was one of 1500 "loyal citizens" who has been randomly selected to receive $9000 grant from the US Government. All I had to do is provide my credit card, check card, gift card, or any plastic card number. They will electronically transfer the money to me. I asked to speak with a manager and she told me the same info.

The best part is they could not hang up the phone. The lady kept telling me to just hang up. I refused. This went on for about 5 minutes.

She waited and after about 10 seconds I SCREEAAAMED into the phone and she hung up. I hope that she can't hear anymore and stops trying to scam people.

Caller with a thick accent said I had won a grant of $9000 for paying my taxes and bills on time. Said the money had to be given by direct deposit, then something about an account center and types of credit cards, I couldn't quite follow it all. When I didn't immediately respond after the last offer, they hung up.

A woman with a heavy accident said she was calling from the US Treasury Government Department and I was selected to receive a $9000.00 grant. In order to receive the money she needed a checking, savings or credit card account number. I told her I was not giving any of my account numbers and she ask how she was going to send the money. I told her she could send a check and she hung up.

I just got a call yesterday from the same number. It was the lady with the thick accent. She was hard to understand. Told me the same thing about being a good citizen and the $9000. They wanted my bank information. I told her I didn't have it and I asked her for a number that I could call them back later. She of course didn't give me anything, but said she would call me back today. How do these people get our numbers?

Caller spoke with a thick Caribbean accent; said the same as all the other comments - i was chosen to receive a $9000 government grant that did not need to be paid back. he spoke very quickly so i kept interrupting him and making him slow down and repeat. I asked for the name of the agency and made him say it really slowly - the human health Ageny....no such thing. I told him I would verify that this was a legitimate prgram and call him back. he got argumentative and was saying, "what, you want free money?? You could have this money in 45 minutes; just give me a credit card number, debit card number or bank account number!"

I want to know why this scam is still allowed to be going on and noone has shut it down? The comments go back at least a year!!

I just received a call from this woman with an accent, saying that I have be given the opportunity to receive a 9,000 grant that I wouldn't have to pay back. While she was saying this is was really noisy in the background so I could barely hear her, right then I had a feeling it was a scam so I pretended to be interested and said I couldn't locate my debit card at the time then I told her to call back in an hour. When I hung up I googled the number and I saw all of this. This why people always say listen to your gut. If she does she's going to be real disappointed because I will not be answering. I don't remember what name she used, but I know it started with an "S" maybe she said Susan, I could barely hear her. Never answer this call. I hope they get busted.

I received the same call from the same # (202-210-0054) from a guy with a heavy mid-east accent telling me I would get $9,000. While he was talking I googled the 'Loyal Citizen Grant' & confronted him with the fact that it was listed as a scam.

I asked him if I could have his phone # so I could turn it over to the police. He used the '202' area code, but then the rest of the # was my phone #. When I confronted him on this he hung up on me.

Oh well, guess I'm out $9,000... }:-)

I received a call about 30 minutes ago saying I had been selected to receive nine thousand dollars from the government for not being on drugs or being incarcerated. I was out walking so it was hard to understand her and I asked her to repeat herself a couple of times. I told her to call me back in 45 minutes and let me talk to her manager. Hopefully she will not call back. If she does I'm just going to let her know that I know it is a scam.

When she said that I paid all my bills on time and had no criminal record I knew she was lying. I have a criminal and I do not pay my bills on time. LOL

I started laughing at her, and she hung up.

She must think we are all I all idiot's.

Recieved a call today from this number, same story as everyone else. A male with an accent told me about a $9000 grant that was waiting for me. I Laughed out loud and then he went on with his script, asking for either a bank account, debit card, or that he could wire me the money via western union.

I asked him a few simple questions, such as: What is my name, What is my address, and what is my phone number. He had no answers, then he proceeded to read off a phone number which made no sense, 000033499 so on, I told him he was stupid as the number was not even mine nor would it match up with any country code. This guy didn't know I work in Telecom for a living.

At that point I told him to F' Off and never to call again, I also let him know that this was clearly a scam and had I been owed any money from the government, via a grant or not, that he would have some basics about me.

I ended the call.

I also want to point out that the number that shows on the caller ID may have been spoofed. It is very easy to create a fake ANI or Caller ID. I called the number back and did hear a rather poor out of service message, seemed a bit too fake for me, however it is possible it is an old telecom recording.
