User Complaints for 202-738-4703
Caller name: Jimmy Johnson
On Saturday June 6, 2015 I received a phone claiming that I had been selected to $9000!. I was instructed to call Jimmy Johnson 202-738-4703 & give him my ID #. I did as I was told and Jimmy Johnson wasn't in but for me to call back in 10 minutes. I called back & reached Jimmy Johnson & was instructed to go to Wal-Mart and send $220 so that they would know that it was me & it would give me clearance to the Federal Reserve, who then would automatically release my funds. They don't speak English & it is a down right shame & disgrace to us Americans! I hope that these scams stop!
Caller name: Caller on behalf of Jimmy Johnson
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 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.
Caller name: Gary Gibson
Called me impersonating an agent from the IRS. Thick Indian accent/ noisy background. Said I owed $3765.26 from an error made on income tax from years 2009-2014. Wanted to know how I was going to pay and if I didn't choose to pay immediately they were going to send someone to arrest me and take my drivers license. Pieces of s**t ... go back to your indigent country and rip your own kind off. Better yet FIND A JOB AND WORK FOR YOUR MONEY
Caller name: (416) 364-1111
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.
Caller name: Logan Cliffton
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.
Caller name: Unknown/ Melina ?
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)
Caller name: Jimmie Johnson
Same as the rest did not go through with it.... le045 and all! terrible people that do this should be put in federal prison sentence to life for ruining others who fall for it... promises up and down its not a scam when you know it is!
Caller name: Some foreign Lady who is very hard to understand
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.
Same as the rest of the comments. Said I got a grant needed to call Jimmy with a code so I did and he said I would receive a check by Monday and that was that. Never asked for money from me or anything. More then likely a scam. Both numbers that called came up as Washington DC numbers.
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.
Caller name: 206.701.0285
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...
Caller name: Jimmy Johnson
So today June 12, 2015 my mom gets a call from some lady with a foreign accent asking for me, so I get on the phone and the moment she said "you've been selected for a grant through the government" I knew it was a scam, but I played along, she asked for my age and asked me how would I like to receive the money, of course I said western union so she gave me a "conformation number" which is "LE045" and I was told to call "Jimmy Johnson" on this number (202)-738-4703 so I immediately gave him a call, so when I called I was like is this Jimmy Johnson he said yes, I was like well I just got a call to receive $9000 can you help me with that, he asked for my "conformation number" so I gave it to him, then he was like verify your last name I was like okay "Lewis" , he told me to hold and never clicked back over! So the computer freak I am I googled his name nothing popped up, I googled the number and walla this is what I find!!!!! A freaking scam that went COMPLETELY wrong
Caller name: 8745-5123
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.
