First a lady called. She told me to call 646-450-1375. I called and spoke to Cody. He said I was eligible for a $9000 from the government because I am a taxpayer. He told me to go to Walmart and purchase a registration card for $100, 3x, and give him the reference numbers to get the money. He wanted to stay on the phone with me. He said he would give me more information once I got to the store. He has an accent. He told me to keep it confidential so no one can get hold of my money.

It was a recorded call, saying that my social security number is going to be Frozen and that the government was going to come and arrest me. I needed to call this number back to confirm my social security number and to get directions on what I needed to do so none of this happen to me. I am just thinking that everybody needs to know that this is happening so nobody Falls victim and the call was received on a business line.

I was recently looking for grants online. A few days later I got a call saying I had been approved for a government grant for $3,500. They even told me to go to grants.gov to see that they are legit. I was told they could transfer the money to me for free if I gave them my debit card number. Being suspicious, I told them I didn't have a debit card, only a checking account. They said they could deposit the money that way but I would have to sign up for their program for $19.95 for 2 months and they would need my account and routing number. I told them I wanted to call the ScamPulse.com and see what they said about it and they said they would call back in a 1/2 hour. I called ScamPulse.com and they said it's a scam. A 1/2 hour later, they did call back and when I told them I had called the BBB, they hung up on me.

I almost got scammed out of 15,000$ I thought it was promising but I was still sceptical about it. I did research on randomly selected federal government grants and all I got was red flags. If you get this call, please be careful or your life will never be the same

I was contacted by a good friend of mine that he won a grant of $250,000 and showed me a picture of pile of cash he received . I trusted him because he is a friend supposedly . I think of it later that he was an accomplice of the scam . First , Joe Loris to send $3000 worth of Amazon and Google play to receive my funds . Then he called me and said that package was held at Biloxi International Custom and ask me to pay him $3250 to pay customs . He told to wait for the package 5/27/19 . After that date he called me that funds were held at Konfidential Bank in Miami . He phished the tracking Sx and the bank . They were faked . Now he asked me for $17000 to get access code to get the funds . I did not send the money this time . I was scammed out of $6350 total . Now I realized that it was a big scam and my friend was his accomplice . Warning ! Do not trust your friend

I received a message from one of my friends on Facebook. She was asking how I was doing then she stated she was feeling blessed because she was approved for a government grant that she doesn't have to pay back. She stated that she was going to open a grocery store ( which I thought was wired because she is retired). Then she asked if I wanted to try and see if I could get approved. I said sure I could uses some money. Then she sent me the guys name and number Mr. Ron Anderson 601-460-9575. I texted him and he forwarded me the link to apply. I did just to see what would happen. I was approved for 120,000.00 and all I had to do to get the money was to pay for the delivery pin. I asked how much. I was told $450.00 in stream gift cards. I told him that I have never heard of them. He told me where to go and buy them. I was feeling pretty uneasy about that. So I asked my friend and she was like ya that's how I did mine. I told my friend that I have been scammed before and I don't feel safe about it and I stated asking my friend questions that only she would now. Like how did we met. She got defensive about that she said I cant believe you don't believe me. She would never answer the question. I then asked her to call me and she stated No, she couldn't because she just had otolaryngology surgery and couldn't talk. When I told the 2 different people that I know its a scammed I haven't heard back from them.

Called and verified my name, age and ss# and said i was to recieve a 9000.00 dollar federal grant. They gave me a activation code and then the phone number listed above.

I called the number and a second person answered the phone and told me to go to a western union and purchase a 200.00 dollar activation card to release my 9000.00 dollars into my bank account.

At this point i asked for the name of the Finical group and she said

United State's Federal Government based out of New york. The name Given was Kathy Cooper.

I proceeded to tell her that this is not how the goverment works and there is usually paperwork involved with a Grant. She argues with me for several minutes.

I hope this gets cleared up.
