The person that kept calling me name was Aaron Carter (if that is his real name)

He will call you everyday to let you know that you have been approved for a grant loan and tell you when you have applied for one. He will begin to give you two options. Either direct deposit or check come in the mail 10-12 business days. If you go by check then he will ask if you have at least $3.00 to cover shipping and handling. If you go by direct deposit, he would ask you if you have 4 or 5 dollars on your card to make sure your card is correct. Once you give him permission to get your information that is on your card, then he will perceive to withdraw money from your account.

My husband received the first call on 5-8-17 around 11:40a.m. from 323-208-0249 on the caller ID it showed up as Washington DC. They told him that he had been picked out of the database somewhere for the government grant he said he was qualified for it because he doesn't have a criminal record. He said his name was Alex Brown. He said you are eligible for a $14,000 grant from the government and he said you don't have to pay it back and you can use it for whatever you wanted. He said he could use the money for anything he wanted, but if he bought anything illegal or done anything illegal they would take the money and call the proper authorities, he said this was confidential. He told him we didn't have any money, what he wanted was for us to get $100 go to store and load money on an I-Tune card to call him once we had the card, and he told him that he would have the $14,000 within 5-10 minutes, my husband has a debit card. He gave him a debit card number. We went to a store and called him three times, he asked if we had bought the card yet, and I asked him are we supposed to put the money on the card, and he said yes. We came home and he called again and he was telling my husband that he was going to take money out of his pocket and put it on my husband's card. They told him to just go home and wait for him to call, and he just called about an hour ago (about 2:30pm). Then the man told my husband to get $100 to put on his debit card, and my husband kept telling him I don't have any money, I don't have any money. He told him once he got that arranged to call him back.

I received a messenger communication on Facebook that I thought was my friend. He stated he received a Government Grant $15,000 for $300 that was the lowest price. Funds were to be sent by Moneygram to Ana Yanet Soto in Los Angeles, CA. I am also receiving text messages. I kind of figured it was a scam. Did not seem logical. I did not send any money. The communication started April 18, 2017.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I received a telephone call last week from a gentleman asking for my name and that I entitled to a grant fund from the United States government for grant money totaling $9,000.00. I said that this is a scam. He stated that if you think this is a scam then hang up. I figured I would play along with this gentleman. He stated that he would transfer me to a supervisor who stated the same thing as the first caller. I was to go to Walgreens or Walmart to put money on a card. At that time I told the caller that I worked at Walmart and that we didn't have those types of cards. He said I didn't say Walmart, I said Rite Aid, Walgreens or Dollar General. He then hung up the phone. (His name was Gary Wilson, GG2097 is a number that I was given as my account number).

I have applied for government grants online. I have been receiving calls to my cell phone. Caller with an accent is offering a $9000. Then they called back and stated it was $9800. I was accepted out of 1500 people in the US. I was randomly selected. I don't have to pay it back. I spoke with three different people. They all had accents. This threw up a red flag. Wanted me to pay $300. It was like a holding fee until money went through. They gave me phone number to call them 202-642-2172. I was given confirmation number MK135. Wanted me to bring the $300 with me to the check cashing place. It was a deposit to get the process going. I told them there was an Ace check cashing by my home that had Money Gram. I did not send any money.

Type of a scam Government Grant

Received a call from a man saying my name and phone number had been selected to receive a $9000 Government Grant. No repayment, no fee to receive. Was told a check could be mailed to my home, direct deposited into my bank or I could pick it up at Walmart. I refused to give him my address or bank info and said I would pick it up at Walmart. He told me it would be there in 1 hour. After several hours I went to Walmart and filled out the necessary paperwork and was told there was no money and they couldn't give me that amount even if there was. The ID only shows up as Private caller (no number) and I have no call back number. They continue to call even though I have told them I'm on to them and to stop calling.
