Type of a scam Government Grant

Received call 9/22/17 @3:27pm

Scammer left message to call back and claim free grant money you are not required to pay back. Upon calling the scammer back a male answered the line saying his name was Mark from the federal grant department, again he explained I had been selected for a government grant, prior to me mentioning any personal information. I was then placed on hold to be transferred when the call dropped. I tried calling back and was hung up on by a woman.

received a call at work from someone that did not speak good English stating I had been selected by the government for a grant to help with school. She stated I could choose where I wanted to get my money from ( Walmart, Kroger, Western Union). She gave me a confirmation number AR405 and a number to her boss of 202-854-9681. She asked that I not hang up while she got her boss on the phone. I hung up and see called back. Someone in the office picked up and told them I was not available at the time, she cursed the employee and hung up.

I was contacted by telephone and this foreign speaking lady told me that the government randomly picks 16 indivuals each year for government grants in the amount of $7900 dollars and that I had been chosen because I had no prior arrests or filed for bankruptcy and for that reason I was to receive a federal grant and how did I want it by check, cashiers check,, or by direct deposit, or by mail and she gave me a code of somekind to validate the federal grant and told me to be sure to give it to the case manager that handles the grant money and she gave me a phone number to the federal grant case manager and it was 360-203-0368 and also the number that she called from was an invalied number and it was 202-147-5555. I didn't follow thru with it because I felt that it sounded to good to be true nobody is going to give you $7900 dollars, they have continued to call and call and I just hang up and refused to answer the call. I didn't receive anything because I didn't go that far, I didn't call that number I was afraid to so I just let it go.

Contacted on 8/15/2017 by male informing me I was chosen for a $9200 grant because I was a Florida resident. Was given the confirmation number of TR255. Was told to go to any money gram location to pick up money because I didn't choose direct deposit. Next day was told by a Stephanie Williams that I would have to pay $250 in steam cards gave her all the numbers from cards and was connected to jack brown who in turned said I needed to pay $370 for half money right then or $740 to get all I chose $370 in stream cards then next that wouldn't work so 370 more and I can get money was given two numbers to pick up money 27865262 and 32851152 so girl at money store said there weren't enough numbers so next jack says that I need to pay 450 for insurance so I buy more stream cards so next comes Mike hunter who now says I can't get the money till I show them five years of tax returns or settle my tax Debt for 560 more steam cards and at this point I'm broke and embarrassed because they just broke me and now I'm mad as hell and if I can't get my money back stop them from doing this to anyone else. I am in the process of opening me a business ess and I was so happy that this came right on time but it's a NIGHTMARE and I'm too embarrassed to tell or ask family for help.

Today, August 17, 2017, I received a telephone call from 202 695 7816 a gentleman who stated I had won federal grant money in the amount of $9,700.00. I was given an additional telephone number of 845 350-0432. I had two options, I could with Western Union and have the money delivered to my home. I asked what was the catch and he said no catch. I would have to go to Walmart, Kroger and get a Steam Registration Card which would be free to me in the amount $200.00. I was told to call him back and I would get a code and what information I needed to receive the money through Western Union. I stated I could not give the $200.00 but he said we are not taking the $200.00. I explained I did not have a vehicle to go to Kroger or the money so he stated when I did to call him back. I then called the number and was given a code D00080882. I was to call again and, which I did, and a gentleman named Allen asked for the code. I was asked to get the Steam Registration Card and give them a call back. I was told I would receive the money within two days.

Type of a scam Government Grant

They called me up and told me i had been chosen to receive a government grant. I was told since I never received a grant before that was one of the reasons why i was selected. They gave me a confirmation number with 2 letters and 3 numbers in it. The initial call was made to me by a google phone number from Washington DC the number was 202-618-1385. A man that goes by the name Melvin Lanister told me to go to Walmart and purchase 2 of the $100 dollar ITUNES cards he said is paying Walmart's fee for going through them for the money. He said I would receive 9,200 dollars. After i purchased the cards he asked me to scratch off the the gray strip on the back and read the codes off to him. then you call this other number 646-867-1360. when you call the second number he proceeds to tell you that another fee of $500 would have to be paid in order to receive the grant money. I hung up and knew I had been taken for $200 dollars. I'll never fall for another scam. Come to find out the government will never call you randomly and tell you you have been chosen for a grant.
