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

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:)

Caller name: Norman White
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)
Caller name: Ricky Lee/Brittney
Same as the all of the others. Claiming that I had been given $7k for paying taxes on time, not filing bankruptcy, etc. Will send through Western Union, but will need to deposit $280 & will get it refunded with the $7k. It looks like as long as these people have been doing this, that they could be stopped by now.
Someone please take the time to STOP these lunatic's from trying to scam everyone. What does it take?
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.
Caller name: Catherine Jones
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!!!!!
Caller name: 416-364-1111
I received a call from a gentleman from India most likely saying i had been selected to receive 7000 dollars in a federal grant based on a demographic study of my area along with 1500 other people. All I had to do was call (202)621-0436 with my approval id and speak to the manager then the manager would walk me through the process and even stay on the line with me until I received the grant plus the $280 processing fee that they wanted me to pay through Western Union and that the whole process would only take 10 minutes. Glad I didn't fall for that scam, no one gets something for nothing especially $7000.

Caller name: Veronica Stone
I had received multiple calls from DC, Canadian and unknown phone numbers. I had answered them a few times and they were foreigners and very hard to understand so I hung up on them. Finally the other day I had a woman "Veronica stone" she was a little easier to understand. She said that I had been awarded a $7000 grant because I had paid my taxes on time, had no criminal record and hasn't filed bankruptcy. She gave me a grant confirmation number and the accounting department phone number 202-621-0436. I called it a couple times and it just rang. I assumed this was a scam but thought I'd entertain the idea. Then today thought I'd google the number to see what I could find, glad I found this!
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.
I recieved phone call 202-155-7777 British Columbia, the caller stated he was a federal agent and that he was giving me $7000 dollars just for filing taxes on time. He asked if I had any questions I asked him If this was a scam he fumbled on his words a bit.and said no this is money for you. Call 2063171464 for your grant approval. I immediately called bullshitt. Seen this site.

Wanted to let me know how I could collect my $7,000 for being a good tax paying citizen that hasn't filed bankruptcy in the past 6 mos. She described the ways I could get my money and I told her I wanted it in nickels so I could play the nickel slot machines. Didn't even phase her. She just kept on telling me to call the number and give them my verification code NA102 so I could get my money. Too funny. I hope no one ever falls for this garbage.

Caller name: Alex Cooper / Lucas Gunther
Yep, same thing with here. I received a call from 000-000-0000 and they proceeded to tell me I was being granted $7000 from the federal government. So I had to verify my address and call another number to receive my payment. They wanted me to pay $290 for a security deposit for my safety in order to get my $7000. I told them I didn't have it and they said to borrow it and call back. Later I kept getting calls from a restricted and unknown number so I finally answer, they wanted to know if I got the money yet. I told them nope and I wanted some solid proof this wasn't a scam he said "sir we are the federal government" so I told them I wanted to speak with his manager, he then told me he is pretty high up and I could talk to him, I said no im not high so give me your manager, then he started arguing. Then I told him to give me my social security number if he was the government and he started arguing with me and refused to give it to me lol. I then hung up, I'll tell ya what for being foreingers they have some real American normal names, but cant speak English very well at all.
Caller name: Blake
A gentleman with a strong Indian accent called me just a few minutes ago and told me I was selected by the US government to receive a 10000 grant. he then gave me a phone number to call 202-621-0436. and a claim number. the first thing I did was type in the phone number and I found this website.
Caller name: Henty & Cindy Miller
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. Blessings, Everyone, Grannie in Georgia
Received a call several times from a Washington number about government grant for being upstanding citizen with no arrests and taxes paid. Couldn't understand much of what was said other than that due to extremely thick accent. Sounded maybe Indian or some kind of middle eastern. Was told I was crazy if I was not interested when I said that I wasn't but OK it was up to me if I didn't want free money. Hung up on me several times. Usually a man but couple of times was a woman. Number started to change to all over the place as calls persisted. Kansas. New York. Etc... unknown as well. Have been getting calls since end of summer 2013 up until recently jan/feb 2014. Also getting calls lately from same numbers from a place stating I was eligible for returns from medical services in the last so many months. When I said I was not interested that my insurance covers everything they said the standard but its free money! Same accent same switching number always passive aggressive and rude.
Caller name: James
It never stops. These low lives keep trying to rip people off. Today I get a call from James tell you are getting a grant from the US Government, because you are a good citizen. The grant was for $7,000.00,and I could only spend it in good way's, and that I could not gamble or buy drugs with the money. He ever asked me for any money. How ever he did ask how I would like to receive my grant money. He told me there was three ways that he could give me the money, one was by putting it on a prepaid card, two transfer it to my bank account, The every lst was I could go to Western Union, and pick up the cash. Knowing he was trying to scam me from the very first, because there's no way I am getting a grant over the phone, without filling out tons of paper work first. Anyway I told him I want cash from Western Union. Then he gave me a code,and told me to call a number he gave me,and they would activate at Western Union than I could pick up my cash. I called the number, and got no answer, and when I did get a answer they hung up on me.
Caller name: Dexter Su Medgar & Steven King
I received a call from # 416-364-1111 (Toronto Ontario) on my caller ID. The callers name was Dexter Su Medgar. Said I won a grant for $7000 issued by the Gov't because I pay taxes and have no bankruptcies. He gave me a confirmation # DLxxx and a telephone number 202-621-0436 to call tomorrow b/c the banks would soon be closing. As soon as I hung up from him, I called the # 202-621-0436. and spoke with rep Steven King. He wanted to know what time did I speak with Dexter oddly enough. Steven also said that the banks are closing soon and to be sure to take my confirmation code with me tomorrow to receive the 7K but there was a returnable deposit of $280 needed from me prior to. I inquired why was this necessary. Both callers said they had to hang up because the banks would soon be closing (The US Federal Reserve Bank ) at 6:30 pm and that he would call me back tomorrow. This is a total scam. Please do not give any account info to theses people and don't let them get any of your $.
Caller name: Amy Watson
I received a call on my Cell phone, with a woman with a very strong foreign language, I believe India, stating that I was choosen to receive $7000.00 because I had a clean record and had no bankruptcies, which I am in the middle of a bankruptcy. She had my name and address. She gave me a confirmation number and asked me to call 202-621-0436. I was weary because to the accents that they were speaking and it was late in Washington DC where they claimed to be in. The man that answered the call that I made back to him, was rude when I asked him if this was real. Very sad that this is happening!

Caller name: Jake Ricardo
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.
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!
Started receiving calls simetime in the last cpl months of 2013 I think from somewhere about free government grant money but couldn't understand anything they said! They sounded middle eastern. The number was all 0s a cpl times but mostly it s from 5 digit numbers! They have been getting increasingly harassing for a long time they would just call a machine would say goodbye and then hang up. Now its back to the scammer and they always call more than once in a row within a cpl mins of each other. Now this last time I told the woman I was considering bringing up harassment charges and she hung up then a bit later a man called and when I told him I was not interested I did not think but that if he wanted to send me some mailed information on it I could look up on it and think about it he asked if I was crazy that he just explained it all and I said yes but I want to research it and think about it he responded with a f**k u then. F**k u f**k u f**k u! And on and on and on and then hung up and now I am quite honestly a little bit rattled and alarmed.
Caller name: didn't give name
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?
