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!
The call I answered showed the number unavailable. I was expecting a call so I answered. Ask to speak to me, I said you are. He went into the $9000 Grant winner, script. I just gave one word answers.. He got to verifying information right name, wrong address. He abruptly hung up. I have been getting calls from this one 202-407-9056 and 202-601-3230.
Keeps calling and disconnecting. Then one time told me I had won a grant...asked them to send it to Putin since he deserved the Nobel award more than Obama...they hung up on me.
I have since blocked the number on my phone
For some reason, I got the same call that you all got, and was told that I was awarded $9,000 in grants by the government. Sounded good to be true, but I feel suspicious as I heard the woman's foreign accent and "claimed" she was from the US government. Now I feel even more suspicious as I gave my information to the lady. Is there any way to report this number? Like I feel scared and suspicious as to what will happen now that I have given away my basic information.
I've received several calls from this number, after finally getting frustrated with having to ignore calls, i picked up, waited for someone, a man with a very thick accent, to speak. After he said Hello, i told them to "Never f***ing call this number again" he responded with "I will never f-ing call this number again I never want to hear your f-ing voice again you a*****e"
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??????? :-)
These people will not give up. They have been calling for weeks and weeks saying we won a grant for thousands. How do you "win" a grant? They are ignorant and bothersome. If they worked as hard at a real job as they do trying to steal my money, they would be rich. Why doesn't law enforcement put a stop to these people???
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: alexander fake name
Guy with indian accent, said he was calling fron u.s. government grant dept from washington, d.c. for $9000 claim. Not to mention it was saturday when gov office closed and he called my husband phone. He said I could choose bank info, visa card or western union to receive the grant. But, when I said I dont feel comfortable giving that info to send me this info in writing for me to confirm..... click...... he hung up. Not surprised
Caller name: Washington DC
This nitwit told me I have a $9,000 dollar grant for paying my taxes on time etc etc.
I did not give him a chance to go any further, I told him to perform a very unnatural act on himself and hung up.
In addition, I placed this number on the "blocked" list in my phone.
Caller name: Psychic garbage name
Psychics Using magic jack. Scammers trying to get you hooked on lowering credit card interest which is a scammers way of saying, iwil get your personal info and scam you BIG TIME!! Also received a second call two minutes after that call claiming to be a psychic in Dallas,Texas who will help you with all your money problems. This is total nonsense and BS., do not fall for this garbage. Psychic business on northwest highway in Garland, Texas. Business name is "psychic Readings". Stay away from these crooks and hang up the phone and call states attorney general.
I've been called by this number several times now from a Asian lady about grant money. The first time they called it was $5,000 now it jumped up to $9,000. I'm not going to lie I fell into their trap, and I sent them money! After the whole ordeal I still never got the money. I new it was a scam when I was trying to buy the dog pack card and she wanted to to be secretive about it; that sent me the wrong signal, but me being foolish I still sent it to them.
So they transferred me to some banking company then the bankin company wanted money too. I didn't have anymore money to give, so they said sorry I can't help you then and hung up.
So today they called me saying the same BS from the first time! If this was a real thing you would already have me in the system right? Nope dead wrong. So I listened to see where it would take me; what do you know they tried to send me to this number(206) 866-5728
WA, USA to talk to an middle eastern guy again. I proceeded to tell him I've already done that money dog pack and they wanted to know how much I have sent them, so I told him. He seem to got a little butt hurt when I told him "I have already payed this fee before and you guys ripped me off" he thought I was directing this towards him. Which I wasn't, but if the shoes fit lace them up and wear them.
He was still trying to get me to pay another fee. He then told me very rudely "so do you want it or not" and I told him "no", and he left the line but never hung up so I did.
Caller name: could not understand him
A man with a foriegn accent just called said they did a survey here in LasVegas Nevada and I got $5000.00 grant from the Federal Government and that I have to call a Nicole Parker and give her a verification number (BA279) and to call her at this number 202-697-9374. They only asked for my name and age on the first call. I know this is a scam. I never called the number. The number he called from was 874-551-23, it is not a complete number, probably from a computer.
SOB called and wanted to give me a $9000.00 grant for NO REASON from the United States!!! I asked is this for my education and he said no, for anything I want.... i said that he was full of s**t and to lose my number....
Scammers...too bad our government aint doing more to catch these f*****s....seems like this number has been going for a while...hard to trace????????
Caller name: Some Foreign Man
Got a call from a guy with heavy foreign accent. Sounded like he was from India. He told me I was selected to receive 9 grand in Gov't Grant Money, and asked for my banking information. I told him I didn't have a checking account or savings to see what he would say and I was told he could wire the money to me through Western Union. As broke as our Gov't is, I highly fricken doubt it. I told him to remove my name from their call list and to never call me again!
