Started calling me on 10/3/2013 saying that I received a $9,000 grant. I missed his call so tried calling back ten times. There was no way to leave a message. On the message he was asking for me to give him my bank account number or credit card number to receive the grant money. Very suspicious to me! Also I never applied for a grant. I also googled the address he said on the message, 200 Independence Ave SW, and it is the Dept of Health and Human Services in Washington D.C.
This number (2027384703) has been calling me for the last two days offering a $9000 grant. They do not give very many details and ignore your questions while insisting that you answer theirs. The worker that was told to call me kept asking for my age and address. They also asked how I would like to receive the money and I said cash. She then agreed to that, which lets me know that this is a scam. I asked to speak with her manager and instead of going to get him/her she gives me a number to call and says that it is the Financial Department and she kept calling the person Ms. So I called and a man answered, so I asked to speak with Ms. Baul Jefferson. He says "this is Jefferson," also with a difficult-to-understand, foreign accent. I told him I was doing a survey and wanted to ask him some questions(halfway true). He asked for my Grant ID code (which, to me, seems like a code for them to bring up your name and number that they have obtained from the telephone book or internet and pretend as if they know who you are). I explained to him that I did not have a code (I lied *Lord forgive me*) and told him that I just wanted to ask a few questions about his organization. He then apologized and said that he could not speak with me unless I had a code and promptly hung up. To sum it all up, they never even gave the name of their establishment, they would not email me the information, and they do not answer questions. It sounded rehearsed and redundant. Think twice before you tell them anything.
202738 4703 i was called 3/26/14 i was told i was rewarded some grant money of 9000 i was provided with a code i was told to keep safe i felt like it was a scam but i decided to research it and also give him a call back i called back he explanied that the gov. did a survey last dec. and my phone and several the was pick to receive the grant money but i will have to go buy a green pay pal card and send them 205$ to be verified by the gov.so they can release the money and it will be refunded alone with the 9000$ i agreed to give him a call back once i reached wal mart and western union ( i lied) then i google his name and number i found this website so after confirming it was a fraud i had my girlfriend call back and pretend like she was my attorney after asking him servral questions not letting him talk he got mad said that people put things on the internet about them thats not true she told he that its sad they go beyond to scam hard working people he started yelling told her stupid people put things on the internet stupid people like her then she hung uplame the phone they didnt callback
Caroline with a weird accent from caller Id: 8745-5123 called me saying i've won $9k in federal grant money. Then they asked to confirm your address, and they asked for your age. I gave them a fake age, and confirmed on an address I no longer live in.
Then after confirmation, they told me to call and speak to their supervisor Jimmy Johnson at this 202 number to claim my prize. They also gave a me a confirmation code LE045 and made me repeated back to them. Of course i never called, I wanted to see how much information that they have on me. Wow, they're pretty good, but too bad its the wrong address! Way to go Caroline!
Same story as above - was told I won a grant and to call the 202 number - I told them I'd call right away. Have no intention of calling them. However I will probably block the first number from my phone since from what others are saying, this fellow calls back. Sad that folks fall for this...
So it showed up unknown which I never answer but I'm in the market for a job so I have to right now... I believe she said Melina or something was her name but my grant id was le045 which is the same as another previous one and I was to call jimmy Johnson right back as tomorrow is a holiday (it is not and it is almost 8 on a Saturday night when she called me! Not exactly office hours but they don't want me researching)
I also received this call from an unavailable call telling me that I as accepted randomly for a grant. I didn't catch his name, very hard, foreign accent. He asked me if he had the right address and phone number with my name. I never confirmed or denied it. He gave me this so called federal I.D. tax number and this number to call. I called this number the American man answered and asked me to call back on Monday on eastern time at 11:00 A.M. So I decided to google this number and I find this website. I'm glad I checked it out. He also to me his name was Jaime Johnson.
Received call 8/25-2014 13:08:13 Caller ID read "8745-5123" Man
speaking English asked for me by name. Started discussing federal grant
that I had won. Told me that I was allotted $9000 and I would not need
to pay it back. -told him I don't need a grant and abruptly terminated
the call. - Very noisy background , many people talking, could hardly hear the person. But definitely stinks to high heaven of a scam and it is as SCAM. They are just trying to get your banking information or credit card number.
Same story. Got a phone call telling me I won a 9K grant I never applied for, asked for my age and verification of address. SCAM! So when they asked how I would like to receive the $ I said via check to western union. They said they couldn't because of whatever excuse they thought at the moment and then I hung up. Total scam, don't fall for it people. Be me if you'd like code: AT104
i recieved a call from number 305-356-9999 from florida lady gave me number 202-738-4703 for a jimmy johnson he told me i was picked out of 1,700 people to recieve a 9,0000 grant from the gov he also said he would give me a call back with info on how and what to do to recieve this money.
They called me and said she was with the United States Defense Dept because I had paid my taxes and had no criminal record in the last 6 months, and because I had done some survey, "she couldn't even tell me if I did the survey on the phone or what", that I had won $9,000 from the gov and could have it direct deposited, visa, or cash in hand. She gave me a phone # for the Senior Accountant "Jimmy Johnson" and a Grant code # with 2 letters followed by 3 numbers. I put the phone number into Google while still on the phone with her and found this site. I have yet to call the number and hope they are not able to use my info because they have my name, cell phone #, street/mailing address, & birth date. I don't know where they got it but they wanted my bank account info to give me the money by direct deposit, or Visa, so I said cash will be fine. I told her I am dying and this money will pay for my treatments so I hope it isn't a scam, "all true", & she promised me it was not. She was in a crowded room full of other people, spoke with a very heavy middle eastern accent, and was probably in a sweat shop in India if I had to guess. I think homeland security should be made aware of this. My sister in law lives with her husband in his dads house, and he is in the CIA. I am going to give them all of this info and this website and take it from there.
Said I won a $9,000 government grant that did not have to be repaid. Confirme my name and address--which they already had. Gave me a Code LM125. I was suspicious; however, when asked I said I would prefer "cash in hand," i.e., money sent to CVS or Walmart.
It felt like a scam--for example, why not send a check? I decided to call anyway just to see how far they would go in their questions. Jimmy Johnson did not answer the 202 738 4703 number. Neither did anyone else. By the way, I did repeat the Grants Conf. # (as they asked me to do on the phone). I am hopeful that recording my voice does not "bite" me at some point in the future.
I just got a call from a private number and was given the same info that i was getting a $9000 scam and they were actually calling for my husband and they never asked if i was him or not so i played along. they told me to call 202 738 4703 and speak to jimmy johnson and give them id code ik123. so i called and i let the guy talk for a little bit and he said i need to pay $210 for a security deposit and i said that makes no sense if your giving me 9000 what difference does 210 make and he said to verify you are who you are and i said if i pay 210 cash how does cash verify me.. i asked him if his scam has every worked on anyone and if so he should be ashamed. i told them they need to leave hard working americans alone. he had some strong accent and could barely speak english. i told him if it was an american grant then they would make sure that an american called me. Please tell me that someone is doing something about these people they call me all day long every single day and its annoying no matter how many time i yell at them and curse them out, i know its not right but i get mad when people try to scam us.
