called me but barely spoke English. After I told him how much me and his mother love having s*x and that she rather enjoys eating snickers and grape jelly out of my a**s, he replied " F%$# you" over and over. I would have stayed on and chatted with him all day but after a few more exchanges of bad insults he hung up... I kinda liked that guy

received a call from this "gentleman" claiming to have $10,200 grant from the Federal Government held for me New York Federal Reserve Bank. Then he proceeded to tell me he needed my checking account number or my credit card number. Immediately My suspicions were aroused and I refused to him my info. I told him that I was unemployed and the money would be great, send it to me in a check. Funny he needed my address and zip. How did he get my phone number? This was on August 9. Of course I am still "waiting" for the "check". LOL

As with most of the comments here, caller sounded like a female with a heavy accent that I quite couldn't understand. I did hear something about $200, the government and also 10,000 grant. Before I could ask for further explanation, she hung up. This was the 2nd call within 24 hours. I will be reporting this number as it seems this is a pattern.

This number, along with an array of other numbers with area codes from literally across the country, has called me 3 times today alone. Most of the calls I received I missed, but the few I did pick up it was extremely crackly on the other end and there seemed to be a drastic delay of my answers being received on the other end because the callers always answered my questions either minimally 10 seconds post my answer or seemed completely confused as to how to answer my question. The three people I spoke too all appeared to sound American- 2 were men, and 1 was a woman with a southern drawl. They all however claimed that I had been chosen by the US Government (no official office or bureau etc. name was given) to receive a $10,000 grant that was immune from tax collection and that I was free to use this money however I chose. I asked the woman with a southern drawl how she received my information and she replied, "Well, you should know, you're the one who has applied for a grant recently." This couldn't be further from the truth. The calls began at 9am this morning and have progressively increased, now twice every hour. The number 202-697-7222 in particular called me 3x today and is the only number of the lot that has repeated. I've received so far a total of 12 calls. CALL AND REPORT THIS RIGHT AWAY TO THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION. They will give you a reference # for your report, and also provide you with the number for the Attorney General of the state you live in. You are instructed to call back both the federal and state numbers if you receive any further calls. DO NOT simply ignore these calls- you could be a victim of identity theft. Good luck everyone!

202-697-7222 this number has called me 5 days in a row. 3-4 times per day. They hang up as soon as I answer. I called the number back and let it ring about 20 times, then an automated message says that the extension I'm trying to reach is unavailable and then gives an option to leave a message. Clearly a scam

This guy called, used my name and said I am eligible to receive $200 from the U.S. government because of a grant. I could barely understand him, as it was noisy in the background. I asked him to explain why I would receive grant money and all I could understand was that it is to be used anyway like and something to do with low income or whatever, but my demographic fits the profile. He then said I could get the money in 20-30 minutes by giving my bank info. I told him that sounds sketchy and why would the U.S government call me on a Saturday. He seemed to repeat the same info and said he could give me his supervisors name and pin number to verify its real. I then told him it seems weird the U.S government would ask for my bank info and if this is real, why can't they just send me a check? He then hung up.

I received this call today and the Indian person called from the 202-697-7222 DC#.
He said I won a free government grant of $10,200 and said I have the option of direct deposit or debit card. I told him I would never give that information over the phone. He then asked if I had a Walmart card. I told him it was a scam and My husband was reporting him right now. He said that he didn't care if my husband was Obama. I then just hung up. I will report this to the FBI and BBB. I suggest everyone should do the same to shut this operation down.

I got a call from this number from a man with broken English stating I was randomly selected with 1,700 other Americans to receive a grant for $10,200 from the government. Stated it was free money and all mine. So I go along with him asking questions. I keep asking the name of his company. He repeatedly states, This is the United States Government Grants Department. I say, it sounds like a scam. He promises it is not.

He states that I have two ways to get the money. First is to give him my bank account number and it will be in my account with 20 to 25 minutes, the other is to give him my credit card number and they can put it on there - ANY credit card. I said, no, I will not do either, just send me a check. He said, 'This is the United States Government Grants Department, we do not write checks". So I quickly looked them up on the internet. There was an article from the Washington Post stating if you get a call from The United States Government Grants Department, hang up immediately because it is a scam. I read the article to the man. He said, 'No this is not a scam. This is the United States Government Grants Department and we have $10,200 for you, just give me your bank account number'. I repeatedly said, no just send me a check. Finally I hung up.

He was persistent.

within 5 mins received 3 different phone calls 2 from this number and the last one was from 408982381771 a few to many number but this is what showed on my phone, so I listen to what he had to say and long story short he stated that he was an officer of the law trying to find a certain person because they had a death in the family, well I had no family living or visiting where he said he was from and then he got mad and said he was just trying to contact this person, so I told him if he truly was an officer of the law he would know to contact that persons local police department to find them, and of course he hung up. People will stop at nothing to try and get what they want, what scum bags

The call was hard to understand and this seemed to be intentional. The person had a fake Indian accent(he slipped a few times with his American accent) and identified himself as (unpronounceable name). He then said he was from U.S. Grant services and I had been chosen from a demographic survey to receive $10,200.00. He flew through the options in which to receive it which did not include a mailed check. I said I preferred to receive it by mail and he should know my address since he knew my first name and he could just send it there. He hung up.

Nancy called stating that I have a $10,200.00 U.S. Federal Grant. She told me my name and phone number but when she got the the address she gave me an address in Florida. I really started asking a lot of questions and Nancy started telling me to shut up and screaming at me. She finally hung up on me but before she could hang up I got the number that I needed to call to collect I was not given my Grant ID# because I would not give her my address I clearly told her that she called me and if she was truly the U.S. Federal Government Grant she should have my address because I file my taxes. This dumb s**t again told me to shut up and then started cussing at me. I called the number given to me which is 202-621-0572 and asked to speak to the manager the guy on the phone paused and then proceeded to tell me he was the manager and I told him that I didn't think he was because he is the one that answered the phone he then proceeded to hang up on me. I think that I will be calling this number as many times a day as they call me which could range anywhere between 5-7 calls maybe I will just have to call all night. Sucks to be them but Karma can be a b***h. I am also going to call the local police station and report it with them.

I recieved a call from this number saying that I won a grant of 10,200 and I was selected for my state. She told me what I was supposed to spend it on and everything. She told me I had two options, one being giving my bank info or giving a card number. She then told me if I did the money would be ther in about 30 minutes. I told her to hold on so I could find a card, meanwhile I was looking for a giftcard but I couldnt find one. Although I would love to be 10,000 dollars richer, I would hate for someone to steal my identity!

When I called back using a different phone, I got a message that said, "call rejected."

And I said "you must think I'm an idiot, huh?" And she goes "actually you're not, but a lot of other people are" and I said "so you do this a lot -- ask people for their bank account number and they give it to you?" And she said "yep" and hung up. She basically admitted that this is a scam and they do it often and apparently a lot of people fall for it. DON'T BE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE!!!
