This number has called me several times a day over the last couple of weeks. I have asked each time to be put on the do not call list. Today when I stated I had already asked several times to be put on the do not call list, she then started repeating everything I was saying. At first I couldnt understand her due to her thick accent. Then it became clear she was just mocking me. Ive had enough. Has anyone found a way to make it stop?

Received a call from lady saying I was awarded 10,200 for a random government grant awarded by the government for the state I live in. Had my name and address correct. Wanted a banking account number so the money could be deposited into my account. Said I didn't have an account and they hung up.

Oh my god, I feel like I am so late to this. I feel so dumb cause I honestly gave these people my information cause I needed the money. But soon after I realize this wasn't true I immediately call my bank and suspended my account. This guy name Adam call me from this number 202-697-7222, claimed that he works for the federal government and says I was randomly chosen to win 10,200 dollars, I got excited cause I recently got laid off from my job. Even though I had a gut feelings this possibly isn't true, but man had all my information, even the new address I just moved into so in a way it was sorta convincing. So after I gave him my information, he gave me a number to call which is 210-888-9310 and a confirmation number TL1084 and I was suppose to talk to his supervisor name Avery Watson. So after me and Adam finish talking, I said thank you and he told me good luck, I called Avery Watson at the 210-888-9310, that's the number Adam provided to me. The ringing and ringing, nobody answer. My suspicious came from being a little suspicious to highly suspicious, so I called back Adam at the 202-697-7222 number, it automatically rejected my call, so I tried again, same results. So I immediately called my bank to suspended my account. These people needs to get caught, they hunting good innocent people that's trying to make a decent living

Caller name: From Washington DC

I was told by a man with broken English that he was calling from Washington DC and that I was selected to receive a $10,000 Government Grant that I would not have to pay it back. The only way to get me the money was to give him my bank card information so they could deposit the money. I asked him if he was crazy? He said no; that this was legitimate money from the government. I told him that he was crazy if he believed that I would give out any personal information over the phone, that if this was legitimate he would send me a check. He got upset and boldly said, "Don't you need $10 thousand dollars? Just give me your information so I can give it to you!" I told him to shove the $10K ...bleep,bleep,bleep...(where the sun don't shine)...and I hung up the phone. Where do we report this. I think the government needs to know. I am going to investigate more

Why can't phone numbers like this be rendered unusable by the scammer once this many complaints are filed?

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!

They called me saying that I won 10,200 government grant but I have to send them 180 dollars, first telling me that no money from me is needed then after I gave them my information of my banking they throw in the price of 180. I called them scammers and hang up the call. Then another call said that he was an FBI agent and that he'll send five agents to my home. This was done on march 13 2014, I had my bank account closed..

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

Caller name: Adam

I rec'd a call from this number his name is Adam. In very broken English he went on to explain that I have qualified for a 10K grant from the US Federal Bank in NY and I could recieve the money today if I provide my bank account or credit card number. I play along for a few minutes before I just hung up. I got tired of having him repeat what he was saying because his English was so freakin' terrible.

I couldn't understand through his broken English and the loud noise in the background. All I could here was something muttered about grant $. He eventually hung up. I called the # back and was directed to voicemail.

This number called me, I answered (saying "hello" obviously) - no response though I hear people in the background. "Hello??" I said. "Hello?" From the person who called. "Yes, hello" I said. "Hello?" From the other end in a sarcastic manner. "I'm sorry, did you call for something? Or are we playing 'the hello game'" I said. "F**K YOU!!!!" From the other end.

I thought this was a prank call. I cannot believe it's a "buisness"

Caller name: Couldn't understand

They call me multiple times a say. I usually send them straight to voicemail and they never leave a message. Two times I answered and they hung up. Last time I answered I could barely understand through their thick accent. They said something about grants and that they were from D.C. I said "I don't know why you're calling me but I'm not interested" She responded by saying "Well you can go f**k yourself" I tried to call back to give them a piece of my mind and it said the call was denied.

Caller name: Adam and Evelyn

Calls my cell multiple times a day, stating that I have been selected to receive $10,200 in grant monies that would never have to be paid back. Playing along, with only providing information that is available to the general public (ex address and phone number). Was given a "grant confirmation number" and another telephone phone, and was told to call them. Called from my home phone, which is NOT the phone number I provided, First call to them, I got no answer, then with in a few minutes my home phones rings...its this number call my house line! She started asking for my bank account information so that the Federal Reserve bank in New York could directly deposit these monies into my account. After asking more questions, I was told that I need to pay $180 to release my funds. Told them that they could take the 180 out of my grant monies that is supposedly owed to me by random selection. Was told that they could not do that and that I have to go to the store and buy a prepaid visa card in the amount owed. I laughed at the lady, and said..."gee honey, thanks for the entertainment today, but your S.O.L. because I am not sending any money, and I hope you had fun wasting your time, bet your not reaching your quota for the day!" I knew this was a scam from the get go, #1 both parties had extremely broken English, #2 its Saturday, what government agency is open on weekends??
