Type of a scam Government Grant

Caller explains I was randomly chosen to receive a $9,000 grant from a federal agency in Washington, DC. I needed to make a deposit with Federal Bank of N.Y. at a local Walgreens or WalMart by purchaing a card in the amount of $200.00. Upon receiving that amount the bank would then release $9200 to the "randomly chosen" victim. Or, give them my bank account numbers and they would make a direct deposit to my bank account. They have called on my cell phone under many phone numbers including "Unknown". I have received as many as 6 to 7 calls a day.

They gave me an account number to deposit the money. After I sent the money I received one long text message. I think my phone number was on the application. They wanted more money for security etc. I also reported it to the police.

I get multiple calls daily they harass you and want to give you grant money, I have asked them repeatedly not to call me but it continues. All numbers are always restricted. I don't give them the time of day so I don't know all the details but this has to stop!

Type of a scam Government Grant

I got a call about a "Government Grant." The one from yesterday was from a Michigan number (616-765-4666) but claimed to call from Washington. The number that I am reporting is from the Washington area code, in order to make it more legit. Both callers had an Indian accent and claimed to be calling about a $9,000.00 grant that I was awarded for not being in trouble with the law. I let the first one speak to get some information about how they work. I was given a claim number and told to call a second individual (202-670-5421) from the "Senior Accounting Office" who instructed me to go to Walmart and buy an activation card for $100.00 for the Federal Reserve Bank. He said that once I activated the card, the $100.00 would be refunded together with the $9,000.00. A Google search showed that the number is from a VoIP phone, which is a residential phone number connected to a computer. The second guy was very rude and pushy, trying to convince me to go to Walmart. Once I got the information on how they work, I hung up on him and posted it to Facebook so my friends would be aware of the scam and share the information with others.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I was told by Aaron parker that I would be receive 9,200 dollars from the government stating that

I have no criminal background.

I have paid my taxes on time and that's the reason why I was selected to receive this money. "Parker" said "you can get your money just by using the $30 so I did and he never replied back to me, so sarah Williams stated that I will be getting my money back and that Parker will get in trouble and that i will get my 30 dollars back all I had to do is pay $250,so i did. Williams said that I would get back 9,480 in total and that I wouldn't be paying nothing as I paid the 250 and she suggested that I call and talk to another woman. Christiana White said that the money has been moved to their Bank (Federal Reserve Bank in NYC) and in order for me to receive my money, because I don't have a bank account with them. I will have to pay 750 fee and white will release my money to my banking account. "Now im not too happy". I was telling her that it didn't make any sense that I'm constantly paying,but not receiving anything which White keeps replying that it's not a "scam", but if it's true would the (government at least notified me that I would be receiving this amount of money?) Williams claim the 250 is a tax adorable pay and that in order for them to send it I had to pay that amount so that when it is transferred to my account the government want find me with a tax fee. I didn't realize this was a scam until I bought iTunes cards,but it was already too late. I understand that i want get my money back,but if this can help someone else than so be it.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I received a message from a friend on Messenger (I now believe this was not my real friend but someone posing as my friend. This person could not call me or could not answer some personal information) saying he had just received $60,000 in federal government housing grant money. He gave me a link to an attorney that absolutely looked legit. I then sent a text to this "attorney" *** *** saying I could really use a housing grant as I'm disabled and have a low income. He then asked some questions which unfortunately I answered. Fortunately, he didn't ask for my SSN. He then said he would sent this info to the Federal Grant department for approval. Within 5 minutes I received a text from a different number (703-947-0406) that said "This is agent John from Federal Government free help grant. We have gone through your information. You are eligible to get the grant. Talk to your lawyer. Will let you know the next step". Then the lawyer said "Congratulations". How much money do you want? Then he listed amounts from $40,000 to $200,000. Only catch was I had to pay a fee ($1000 for $9,000 to $2500 for $200,000). He made a point to say the money wasn't for him but for a third party (FedEx to make the delivery). He kept asking how much money I wanted and I questioned if this was a scam. Of course he said absolutely not that this was completely legal. I called the Atty General *** ***l's office listed online and of course they said they do not offer government grants and this was most definitely a scam. I also called the FBI and reported it to them. I worry about my friend because the Messenger messages were not from him so I don't know how they got access to his account (showing his facebook picture when the message arrived). Obviously, I did not fall for this and told them I was reporting them to several agencies.
