Middle Eastern woman said that I was selected to receive $8.5k US Grant from the US Government. She wanted to send me money by visa card or bank account and for me to make a donation through western union.The woman got mad when I asked if she would send information to my e-mail so I could check to see if it was legit and she got mad and hanged up on me.

SCAM.......SCAM.......SCAM........SCAM.....

NEVER EVER SEND MONEY VIA MONEYGRAM UNLESS IT'S TO SOMEONE YOU PERSONALLY KNOW!!!


THIS NUMBER HAD A LADY WITH AN ASIAN/MIDDLE EASTERN ACCENT CLAIMING TO HAVE $8500 IN THE FORM OF A US GRANT....


NO ONE FROM THE GOVERNMENT WOULD EVER CALL SEEKING YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION!! THINK ABOUT IT....THEY ALREADY HAVE YOUR INFORMATION!!!!! IF THEY REALLY HAD MONEY FOR YOU IT WOULD END UP IN YOUR MAILBOX LIKE YOUR TAX RETURN!!

The woman have an accent called me and congratulate me that I would receive $8,500 in Grant money from the Government because I do not have bad records. ID AL337 is what she gave me to call the 202 #. She said I could go to Wal-Mart to pick up the money Or give her Bank Card info so she can deposit it. After 5 minutes she call me back to say I did not call the 202# I looked up the # in Google and saw they are a scam and I told her upfront that you are a scam she she will remove my name from her file.

Man call me today @ 5:16 pm. The name he used was John and with foreign accent saying I can get $8,500 in grant money. I can hear a bunch of them committing the same scam calls in the background. The caller gave me as his physical location 200 Independence Ave SW, Washington, DC 20201.

These people had my name, address and date of birth. Also earlier today my bank & credit cards were compromise and many purchases were charge and I had to go to the bank to clarify these fraudulent transactions.

Received call twice..... same story, my name/number has been selected by the FED Govt to receive 8,500 grant with no obligation. Three forms of payment:
Western Union, Credit Card, Prepaid Card.... When I stated that the FED Govt knows how to get me money/use my IRS refund account - the lady hung up. I dialed the number back but got busy signal

This is a SCAM - the FED Govt. knows how to get us money. They know our address and in some cases our bank account used in IRS Refunds and if a Federal Employee they have our payroll direct deposit information.

I received a call from foreign male the number listed above telling me that I was selected to receive $8.500 by money gram, western union, or Walmart. I had to call another number 202-681-8664 to get my money, and give them a pass code. the guy told me that to be patient, since it might be hard to understand the person who answered the phone and that to keep calling every 3-4 minutes until I got an answer. I am a firmly believer in nothing is ever truly free. I did not call the number but looked it up online, it says its a scam. As I sit writing this they call back, but I do not answer. I have better things to do than listen to that s**t.

this number has been calling me forever. i have yelled at them and texted them. finally I texted them telling them that I have locked all their calls incoming and the outgoing ones that I have made back. I told them I now have enough information on my phone to start a law suit against them. just sent this one last night to them, they would call and now just not say nothing. when I call back I usually get a recorded messages that says "all circuits are busy. it is become very annoying. they are scammers they get very upset when you yell at them, and this is what makes them call you back 3-4 times a day. I have had enough of these people and I believe the number 202-568-8045 is also the same people. this one does the same thing. they call me 3-4 a day.

This was the 3rd time they called me. Previous times was during tax season and said I won 29k and then called few hours later and said we made a mistake you won an additional 15k in grants from Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense or some other nonsense. Since I'm a tax professional with clients both nationally and international I pick up my phone anytime. Yesterday I was at work and had a miss call from this number, no message left and no callback yet.

When I told them sure send it to me by Western Union they asked for my SSN so I told them if your in any kind of government office you can find the last 4 of my social. Was replied with go to h**l and s***w you, when I laughed they got angry and hung up. The scams of the Nigerian prince are slowly going away but these guys are popping up. Hopefully no one gets fooled.

This number called me this afternoon and said he was with the US Government and that I was eligible for a free grant of $8500. He had an Indian accent. I knew he was a scammer by the way he was speaking. He took pauses at weird times and did not seem to have an emotion in his tone of voice. I just let him finish what he was reading. He then asked if I would like to get the grant through my bank. As soon as I said no, he began cursing at me telling me "You can go f!#& your father you idiot donkey!" I began telling him that I knew he was a scam, and as I was in the middle of saying scam, he hung up. I tried calling back a few minutes later and all I got was a busy tone.

I received a call from a 202-657-6869 (Washington, D.C.) stating that I was selected to receive $8500.00 grant. This person struggled with his English and when asked by he would be calling a Govt Office work phone, he said that I had received this. I told him that he had the wrong contact but he then said, "what, you don't want the grant?" I told him he needed to contact our main line and hung up. This person or persons have called numerous times.

I got a call from this number on my cell phone, a middle eastern sounding woman, but it sounded like a bad fake accent, they offered me $8500 dollars I think the said they were dept of grants or something like that. I literally asked "what's the catch?" and she said that I had to squeeze my balls together as tight as I could and I would get the money. They knew my address and I clearly heard giggling in the background. I naturally assumed it was just my friends pulling a practical joke, until I came on here and was a little disturbed, so I'm really curious if anyone else had that experience?

I knew it had to be a scam. The government does not give out free money like that. Nothing in life is free you have to work for it and earn it.

A woman with a Chinese accent identified herself as an employee of the US treasury dept. and told me that I was entitled to $8000.00 for several reasons that I could not totally understand. She told me that it would be issued to my bank account, and she needed my routing number. Or she could issue me a Visa card with the money loaded onto that. When I immediately suspected this was a scam, I told her that I was going to report this number, and she started shouting "f**k you, f**k you, f**k you, you b***h, f**k you!!! She hung up on me!!

Middle Eastern woman said I was chosen to receive grant money $8.5k. I let her go on until she passed me to her supervisor. I told him he was a scammer to which he replied, "I'm a scammer"? I said, Yes, and we Americans know all about your scam." Really?, he said. I told him that even the banks posted it and he laughed and thanked me and hung up. Imagine, a polite scammer who laughs when he's found out.

Called me several times offering me an $8500 grant from the US government. I told them no and to remove my name from the list and guess what? They called me again this morning. I asked Robert Watchun(?) for a website to go on to see if they were legit and low and behold, it doesn't exist. He did say I could receive payment by western union/money gram, direct deposit or a bank card, but before I let him say anything else, I told him I would check the website out and call the Better Business Bureau and if they check out I would call them.
