Type of a scam Government Grant

I recd a call today at 1:15 PM and spoke to Steven Cotter (had an accent) & he told me he was going to give me a $9200 govt grant. This was a one time deal that I would not have to pay. I was instructed go to Walmart and purchase a card for $200 and give him the no. to activate the card. They will then put the $9200 in the gift card. He also said I would get the $200 back. I called the instead to verify information and was told this was a scam.

A man called saying I had been selected to be given. A free government grant.mhe then had me go to a Walgreens where I bought iTunes cards and read him the confirmation letters off the cards. He then continually kept asking me for money to send me this supposed grant. After he asked me for another $1000 I decided that this was weird and asked for my money back. He then talked over me over and over trying to convince me to send another thousand dollars.mi refused and requested my money back. He then said that he could not refund me my money because it had been put into the grant and that only I could get the money but I could not get the money without paying the thousand dollars do the irs. I asked for his manager he said he was the manager then I asked to speak to the irs people and he said that irs does not deal with their customers so only he could talk to them. I was scammed out of $1300.

They contacted me with a code to use at a western union which they said I was qualified for a 9000.00$ grant that I would not have to pay back. But I would have to by some type of card that would cost 200.00$ but I would receive this 200.00$ back when the transaction was complete which then my amount would be 9200.00$. They stated I qualified because I am homeless and this was a Obama care grant. The gentlemen gave me his name Michael King and his number 917-338-6020. I really could use this money but I am weary. I don't know if it's real. I did a reverse check on the number and it came up as a scam. So I am writing to you. He expects me to call him again on Monday at 1130 am where I am suppose to be at a Walgreens to complete this transaction. Should I ? It seems so real. Also gave me a code and new so much about me. Can you help me to find out if this is real?

I recd a call at 3:00 PM today offering a govt grant for $7000. I spoke to a man and he asked for my grant approval number. A woman called earlier (before he did) and gave me #CH423. She told me they could send the money to my bank acct but I do not have an acct. Then she stated they could send the money thru Western Union but I did not have an ID; I lost the ID (driver's license) in a house fire 2 yrs ago. The man then said they could send me the $7000 and asked for my name and address; he told me it would be mailed within 2 or 3 days.

They are creating fake profiles and saying they found you on a list for a government grant. This happened to me personally I thought it was my grandmother and it turned out it was not her. She sent me a link. I thought it was for a savings bond she had for me. They were asking for addresses and email etc. so you can claim your "winnings".

Scammer copied my brother's facebook page and asked to reconnect with me saying he was having a stalker problem and needed to remove all his friends and start over. Once I connected with him again, he said he was looking to invest the grant money he just got ($100K) and asked how much I got. When I told him I didn't know anything about it, he sent me the link to another facebook page to some so-called Government Grant Agent named David Chris (picture attached but this may have been stolen also). Once connected with Government Agent David, he asked my full name to check their database. That's as far as I got before my instincts were telling me to connect with my brother via text message and he confirmed that his Facebook page had been hacked. My mom and other friends had the same spiel pulled on them. I immediately "unfriended" my fake brother and Agent David, blocked both of them and reported both of them to Facebook.

I was told by someone I know over facebook that they had received a federal grant and they wanted to let me know so I could get financial help. Well they linked me to a lady name Mary A. Debbie from texas and said she would help me. I answered a few harmless questions like my name my marital status etc. No bank account or ssn. But after I answered all the questions she proceeded to tell me I had to pay a "clearance fee" to receive this grant. But it had to be paid upfront. There was no way around this without payin upfront. She said she works at federal government grants. But she had no friends on her facebook page and only her cover picture and profile picture were the only photos she had. Her name is Mary A. Debbie and it says below it exactly how I entered it in the following text. (Anthony Mary A. Debbie)

I have received numerous phone calls from people stating that I am eligible for government grants. They are requesting my bank account information to deposit funds. When calling back this phone number it states that the number cannot be connected. The number is(754) 284-0011. The phone number this last time came up to a Florida number. I believe it is a disposable phone being as though right after the number cannot be found. They refused to give me their information as far as the name of a company.
