I was called and informed that due to my clean record, paying my taxes on time, and no ever filing bankruptcy that the government has selected me to win 9,000 dollars in grant money. Too good to be true I know, I am supposed to call "Paul Jefferson" at 347-573-9347, give him my confermation code, and receive my grant money. I have called and the line is constantly busy. No surprise there.

Caller name: She didnt sa

I had a hard time understanding what she was saying because our connection was bad and she called my cell phone. I finally heard what she said and she offered me a $9000 grant that the government said I could have. She said I bet you want to know why you were picked. I said Yup sure do.. Then she proceeded to tell me that last Dec the government did a survey in my City and State and because I have paid my taxes and have not filed bankruptcy in the last 6 months that I can get it. I proceeded to inform her that SINCE last Dec I have moved out of state. There was a pause on the line and she repeated what she said. I said to her I dont think you understand me lady. I DONT LIVE IN THAT state anymore. Then she said what you dont want the money. I said no thank you.. Well its your money not ours. I said that is ok I dont live in that state anymore so I dont want to get in trouble. Then she hung up on me.

It was a foreign woman who called to say that my government has been trying to get in touch with me because they picked 700 people to receive $9000 to do just good things with and I was one of those people, And if I wanted the money by Cash, Visa or MasterCard. I replied you can send me a visa card. She then replied no no I explain- you have Visa card right? you give us the number when I pass you over to our count supervisor and we put it on your card. I then told her that I was not going to give her any of my credit card information. And then replied why don't you just put it into my checking account. And then continued to tell her - you are the government, you send me a check every month, so you have my account information already So just put it in there. She then replied let me explain, we tried a few months ago to make such deposit and he came back as an error and because of that we no need to do either Visa MasterCard or cash and I said okay I'll take the cash you can wire me the money! no we give cash by your checking account I then said I thought you had an error that way! and then I hung up.

Caller name: Logan

They have called me about 7 times in the last week saying I have been selected to receive a $9000 grant to do what ever I want with it. They asked for my bank account number. I said if your the government then u have the number. They said they don't have access how about a Visa card. I said ok send me a Visa card. Their English is not that good i told them if they want me to get this money then put someone on the phone who actually speaks english. They asked for the number of my Visa card. I said no you send me one. They said they can't do that how about western union. I said send me a check. They told me to call the account manager an give him the info to set everything up. Yeah right. I have enough debt on my own. I don't need someone to add to what I already have. I wasn't born yesterday!!!

I just started getting the calls again, after about a year of getting them to leave me alone.
I used to get in yelling matches, I actually had one man call me a b*tch after refusing to give him information.

If they ask for you, tell them the person with that name died. Or wrong number. I told them the death thing, and that kept them off my back for a year.

Caller name: Federal Grant

So they have called 4-5 times over a 6 month period. Each time they go through their story about how since I filed my taxes on time and have not filed bankruptcy the government picked 1700 folks to get free money that was not necessary to be repair. They said I was to get 9000.00. Each time they call its a different amount. I knew in advance it was a SCAM. So I played along. They wanted to verify information like address, name, DOB, etc. I have them false information. Of course they claimed that matched their records. Stupid wankers. They said I could give them my bank account number and they would put the money directly into my account. Right.......... Or they could put it on a Mastercard or Visa. Right............ Or I could go to Western Union location and get cash for a handling fee. Right..................I could hear dozens of voices in a call center. They man had a heavy Indian accent and had to repeat things multiple times. Finally they put me on the phone with a supervisor that would walk me through the process of going to Western Union, give them a 'code' to collect my money. They code would be their account number for the fee. Once their, one of their folks would get on the phone to handle the instructions which means they would tell them to take your money.
Dont fall for these SCAMS. F*CK the Indian call centers.
I played along to waste their time until I finally told them while I had them on the line I pulled up their number and read off information about their SCAM. You will likely be surprised but they actually hung up on me? Wha??????? :-)

They called from some type of call center. There was a lot of background noise. Said they were the government and I got a $9000 grant. When I said I couldn't understand him and asked for a number to call him back for a better connection he hung up.

Caller name: could not understand

These scammers are persistent! No idea how long they have been trying to call me. I have noticed DC #'s for sometime and just thought it was a political organization in DC! 09/07@11:45 am I answered the phone, but before that when the sheriff was here my caller ID showed the same # 09/06@10:35 am, 09/05@11:15am,09/02@2:59am,08/30@5:35am, He said because I paid my taxes on time, and have not filed bankruptcy, that I was getting 9k in grant money. No taxes to pay on it and all he needed was my bank about number.
As that old saying goes if something sounds too good to be true it usually is.... I told him that my husband had the bank information and he needs to call back in a couple hours. Then I called the law!
