Type of a scam Government Grant

I was called on 2/21/17 at 2:56 pm by a man in Washington D.C., his name was Roman- he said that my name was picked in my jurisdiction. That they only pick a few people to get this NO PAY BACK GOVERNMENT GRANTS. He said that the money could only be used to better myself [to pay for medications, fixing the house, bills,etc.] and that it couldn't be used for gambling, alcohol, drugs, etc.  nothing that's bad. He gave me a confirmation # JK556 Then told me to call back the number he was calling from to get more info on this grant. I called back the number and a woman answered then told me that I needed to unblock my number and call back, I did. the info she had on me was my name, phone number, area code where I lived, asked me my age, my marital status, then asked me my work status, I told her that I was disabled. She then repeated what he said what the money can and can't be used for. She asked me if I had a state ID and then asked me if there was a store that was on her list to go to, Walmart, Dollar General, and a few others that I didn't catch. She then said that I had to pick a store go there and then call them back at the number they called me from and then give them the confirmation # they gave me and then she said there was a one time refundable fee of $200.00 that was to register me for the grant. I told her that I didn't have that, she then said when I got the money to call them back and if I felt uncomfortable at any time to let them know and they would drop the registration form and I would no longer be eligible for the grant. She had also said that it was against the law for them to ask me for any personal info like S.S.N., credit card info, bank acct. number, etc. she hung up the phone when I kept asking her name.

I was contacted by a woman named Clara stating that I had been awarded a government grant in the amount of $9000, all I had to do was pay a $200 registration fee to get the grant via an iTunes card. I recognized that this was a scam right away and did not spend any of my money but I wanted to warn others so they would not fall for it.

Called stating employee was from Washington DC government grant eligible for one time offer if I went to Walmart or Walgreens to get $200 gift card and call them back when I had that available. Stated I was eligible for $8000 grant for college and did not have to pay it back to the government. Man spoke little English and could not understand his name. I asked for the business name and he stated he worked for a government organization owned by the government in human services for grants and treasury department. I thought he said his name was Jason; however, he barely spoke English, so I am certain this is a scam.

Called me on my phone saying that I have good credit and have no bankruptcy and I was awarded a grant. They said it was free money and I could do anything I want with it and I didn't have to pay it back. They gave me a 206 number that I called and they put me on hold and I hung up after 2 minutes. I had a special number for them to know who I am, it was mk476. I decided not do this because I knew it was not on the up and up. I was called today on 1-12-17 and really listened to them. I called the local news and they said they are out there and they do do this.
