Same story here. Man calls saying he is with the United Stares Government Grants Department, and I have been awarded a $9,000 grant. I always cut him off and demand to be removed from the call list, but they keep calling. Earlier today it was the same story from a woman calling with a blocked number. Ugh!

I've spoken to these guys at least four times now. They call once a week at a minimum. I've heard from them that they are working for the Department of the Treasury and that the Internal Revenue Service. They claim that I have been reviewed by the government and have been found to be eligible to receive $7K to $8K in grant money, depending on who calls.

They say I can pick this up at any Western Union, to include the ones located inside of Walmart. I can also receive it in form of a VISA Gift Card. We got to the point where they wanted me to verify my mailing address and such. This is where we departed from reality. I continued to ask why he didn't have my information if he worked for either of those named agencies. Eventually this gets to a man yelling various things into the phone ending with an F-bomb and hanging up on me.

Today I actually had one tell me that he was behind my house. I took exception to this and told him that I considered that a threat. I went further and informed him that should he ever be found on recording to have threatened my safety that I would ensure all available Homeland Security, National Security and National Defense Acts would be used to prosecute him and his company. I even made up a few to which he tried to say that they were old and wouldn't be used to prosecute anyone now. I laughed and informed him that the year of the Act doesn't mean it's not used to prosecute people today.

I also continued to ask for his Alien Registration Number that allows him to legally work in the United States. He got a little shaken with that one, so you may want to try that tactic!

I played along with this Stupid person guessing from India. Even went as far and gave him a tracking number and said I sent the $250. to him. He called back and said he was unable to get it. Asked me if I would pay with a Debit Card. Sure! I told him to call back the next day. He did and I told him that I did not need the Grant money now, I had one the Georgia Lottery and 8 million dollars. I put it all on my Debit Card and going out to spend and give away a bunch of money to my friends, before he could get a word out, said thank you so much and hung up. Stupid person called me 12 times today.....LMAO LMAO

This number called me and claimed they were members of the U.S. Federal Government. When he said so, he sounded like he had a thick Middle Eastern Accent and was reading off of a paper. I already knew what he was calling for so I interrupted his ridiculous proposal and said I'd kill him if he'd come near me or my family and that I'd cut off his fingers and head. He started expressing his homosexuality towards me by asking if I'll blow him but I said for him to go f*ck his goat and hung up. People like this need to be wiped away from the planet; they're cancer.

Man with a thick accent called and said that I had been selected to receive a $10,000 grant from the U.S. Treasury because I had no criminal record, had never filed for bankruptcy, and had paid my taxes on time. The first man's accent was so thick, I had trouble understanding him, so he gave me to another man, also with an accent. Second man gave me a Grant ID #, and told me to call 360-967-4473 to get instructions on how to receive my money. He also said that I had 3 options: a check, a Western Union pickup, and direct deposit into bank account (DING! DING! DING!). I called the number given, and was instructed by a man named Mac (DING! DING! DING!) to go to CVS, Walgreens, Radio Shack, and a list of other stores and purchase a Green Dot Moneypack card, which would cost me $4.95. In order for me to get my $10,000, I would have to put $100 on the card. It also had to be a paper card, not a plastic card. He asked me to get the card within 2 hours, or I couldn't get my money today because the bank would be closed. I said I couldn't get it until tomorrow, so he said he would call me tomorrow.

I don't think so; I've blocked all numbers.

Thick foreign accent. Said he was from the Treasury Dept. in Washington DC (Hello! this isn't a DC area code!) and I'd been selected for a grant even though I hadn't applied for any. Told him right out he was a scammer and even that didn't get him to hang up right away.

Someone from this number called my husband and first said that he was with the government and that he had won a prize and he asked what my husband's name was and he said "I am not interested." The man 5 minutes later says (after my husband was explaining to me what the conversation was about) that he is Osama's son and that he was a terrorist and that he knows where we live and that he was going to blow our house up.

I am beyond angry. We have a child in our house.

This number has been calling me for the past several days. I finally answered the phone tonight. Some foreign guy asks for me by my first name....I was taught not to do that unless you have a rapport with that person. When I said that I was speaking he sat that in which he seemed distracted, then all of a sudden I hear him say "f*c you!" Shocked, I say EXCUSE ME??! He then keeps asking for me. I kept asking him if he said that he just kept saying oh not to you. I then explain to him that if you are trying to conduct business you should NEVER start off by telling that person "f*cm you". Further more take my number off your call list and learn how to be a business professional even if you suck at it fake it until you make it. Then I hung up on him while he's still trying to find a way to explain what he had just said.
