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)

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!!!!!

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.
