Type of a scam Government Grant

Someone called me and said I was chosen to receive a grant because I was a good citizen and I paid my bills on time and had no felonies and because I am disabled. They said that the government had chosen 15,000 people to get this money $9000.00 and gave me a confirmation code to give to the manager when I called the number she gave me 202-709-7492 so when I called a person named John said because I wanted to get my money sent via Western Union that I had to pay $200.00 to get a registration number from the federal government to give to the Western union so that they could issue me a check for all or part of the grant depending on the store and that the government would reimburse the $200.00 so I would get $9200.00 on the check. By this time I figured out it was a scam and told him I would not go to the store to do it he hung up on me.

Total money lost $12,000
Type of a scam Other

I got a phone call from a woman that called me - she had my name. She said she was a governmental agency and that they had a car in their posession with my name registered to it and the car was found with cocaine in it. She said she would help me pay to avoid them going to my home. Her name was Sherry Lee and her number was 8333557887. She transferred me to Ian Bishop and his number is 5155999102. He said if I didn't then they would freeze my accounts. He told me I'd have to make payment through gift card and told me I cannot speak to anyone about this because of the severity of the situation. I agreed and went to different stores to do gift cards. I did so many and gave him all numbers about $12,000 worth. He called again for more, I went to Publix and as I ask for it the customer service said don't do it it's a scam. I went home and called the police. The police came to my home and the man Ian Bishop called - the police took the call and said they were calling the wrong number this is the police. The person hung up and didn't call me back. Police told me to report to BBB.

Victim Location 55372
Type of a scam Other

I was contacted twice in two days by an agency that claimed to want non personal information about my health. They were very rude and aggressively trying to keep me on the phone. I made it clear that I didn't want to answer their questions. They were very persistent. I asked them to remove me from their list, they informed me that it was an auto generated system and they could not. I ended up hanging up.
