Type of a scam Government Grant

On 9/23/2016, I was contacted my a man named Raymond Santos, who claimed to be affiliated with the government. The number that he called me from was 765-554-4466. He informed me I was approved from $8,000 government grant where there were no upfront fees and I would never have to pay back. My case # was AJ1020. He said to call another number, 727-324-6231, to verify that this is not a scam.

They said I was selected to receive a grant along with 1500 other people. Then they said that it was required that the funding be used for home improvement, to pay your bills off, for business etc... After which they gave me a confirmation number to call 206-745-0822 along with a confirmation code to give to the representative. They said that it could be put into my bank account or picked up through money gram. Then they asked me for $300.00 for a processing fee. I have heard of these scams before. For one thing you have to go directly through the Grantor to get approved for a grant. You have to in most cases request it yourself. The picture below is suppose to be the business location of this grant company in Richmond Beach, Washington, 98177. By the way, they work through cell phones not lands lines like most Grantor's. If you get a call like this check the number with an address checker first to see if it is a cell number. If it is report it to the ScamPulse.com immediately.

The above 11 numbers are what the government grant scammers use on me. I will get between 6 to 10 calls a week from the various numbers. I have repeatedly asked them to remove me from their calling lists only to be hung up on. I hope you catch these losers so they will stop bothering me.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I was contacted by phone saying I was approved for a 7800 dollar grant. I was given a grant approval Id and was given the 2nd phone number to speak with a Robert Hernandez ext. 109. There I was told I would be able to have the money sent to me to the Wal-Mart near me. I'll I needed to do is have 270 dollars for the registration fee to make it so I was exempt on having to pay taxes on the 7800 dollar grant that's free gov money and I shouldn't have to pay taxes then anyways. Or then why can't that come directly out of the grant. Cuz he says it's refundable as well. So I called ScamPulse.com to find out how to report this scam. As I know it is cuz I shouldn't have to send money to get a gov grant. And I'm unemployed and have no income and no way to come up with 270 dollars anyways.

Was sent a message on face book by a friend that I know. Haven't talked to this friend in a long time, haven't seen him in over 50 years. He wanted me to go to a website. Margie Roth is the agent from the Federal Government Grant Company and United Nation Property Eradication Program. Will send 150,000.00 but I had to pay taxes, insurance and shipping. I will need to send back $1,000.00 to pay for the expenses. Send money to Sheila Coleman in Gibsland, LA 71028. Need to respond immediately for UPS to ship money.

I received many calls at my cell phone from the number 1-779-87987. Thinking it was my doctor's office. I finally answered the call today (8/5/2016 at 3:23 pm) and a lady named Annie, who knew my name, stated that she was from the Federal Reserve. She stated that I had been randomly chosen to received a grant of $1,069. Without me saying anything else, she said "you may be wondering where this money is from..." She processed, to tell me that 150 lucky people have been selected for this grant, that they had to be of Hispanic descent and that they had to American Citizens. Apparently, I was one of those "selected people."

She asked how I would like to receive the grant...via a wire into my checking account, or money order via Western Union. At this point I was really suspicious due to NEVER receiving a call like this from the Federal Reserve. So, I asked her once more where she called from. She answered and quickly went to ask how I would like the money. I told her I had to look into it. At that point, she clicked on me. I tried calling the phone number back to see if I could find out more information prior to reporting this scam, but the number was invalid.

You get a call saying that you qualify for a government grant they say you don't have to pay back they give you ID # and a phone number to call to verify your grant. When you call they tell you to buy them a prepaid card with 285.00 on it. Call them back with the 285.00. And you will receive your money within 15 min via money transfer or deposit into your account.
