Type of a scam Government Grant

I got a call from someone saying that I won a 14K grant from the government and that I do not have to pay it back (I immediately knew it was a scam)... He wanted me to go to my computer and go online to a website, I said that I was not near my PC and he said "ok I'll call back later." He also had a eastern accent (not sure if that is helpful but I have had a few scammers call me and they all had Eastern-type accents). If he calls back I will not go online but I may try to get more info to see if he asks for my PII etc...

Type of a scam Government Grant

a man called my husband who said he was with the government and my husband was picked as an outstanding citizen, hasn't filed bankruptcy, no late payments on home, etc..so he was selected to receive $9000.00. This was a one time gift and he wouldn't have to pay it back.They would send the money to any place my husband wanted to pick it up and this wasn't a scam. But they would have to pull his file to verify everything before they send the money. My husband didn't give any information to this man. When i called the number back from my work phone (didn't want to use my cell phone just in case) the phone line was very scratchy and no one answered the phone.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I keep getting calls saying I've been randomly selected to receive a government rant for $9000. She said it was because I had never been arrested. The caller says she's to go to a store, buy a card, put $250 on the card. He told me he would stay on the phone with me until I got to Walgreen or Walmart. He said you're going to go in and buy a card. He said I could spend the money on anything but alcohol. I told him I wasn't dumb. Then her "manager" called me back. She got mad when I asked her if her office hadn't been raided, so she started calling and hanging up over and over. She spoke very good English. 646-598-1463, 202-558-4171
