I got a call from someone who said they were from the federal government and the phone number came up as from Washington DC. She congratulated me and said because I have a good record, haven't filed for bankruptcy in the past 5 months, and that I pay my bills on time. That was when I knew it was fake because I live paycheck to paycheck and I'm always hit with late charges because I can never get a bill paid on time. She gave me a number to call and said to leave a message with my confirmation code mq7505 and let them Kno I'm calling about the $8000 government grant that I have been awarded today. She did say they will call u right back. A min after leaving the message I got a phone call from Lorraine Hardy and she said I could get my grant three ways, money gram, deposit into my debit card, and put into my bank account. I went along and told her I wanted to do money gram. She said for me to drive to Dollar general in bark river and call her back as soon as I got there because I needed to purchase an eBay card in the amount of $200 to pay for processing and registration fees. I was to stay on the line with her until I received my money. She also told me that the grant money would be coming from the federal bank of New York. Here is the number I needed to call her back at, 202-455-6680 ext 157 and if someone else answers just to ask for Lorraine Harding at ext 157. The first lady I spoke to said her name was Diane but she sounded like she could have been from another country like china. I have never heard of anyone from China named Diane. Usually named Kong or dong or ping, I don't mean to stereo type but I juss trying to get my point across. Also the lady named Lorraine had the same accent as the first lady. I asked Lorraine a question, I said, what happens if I don't have the $200 today can I call u back tomorrow because Saturday is my payday. She says I will be right back and I could still hear people talking on other lines like she juss covered the mouth piece and she gets back on the phone and says unfortunately we do not work on weekends, only weekdays so I needed to call her back early Monday morning. So I thanked her and told her I'd be calling her back on Monday morning. She then told me to have a great evening and I hung up the phone. I wanted to keep the conversation going and mess around with her but I didn't, I juss acted like I didn't Kno she was a scam artist.

I got a call from a man who was foreign. I couldn't understand him, but I think he said he was from the government of Washington DC. He gave me an ID number and said I won an $11,300 grant for being a good citizen. He gave me an ID number of SM369. He told me it was a grant not for school, just free money to sue for home improvements or anything I wanted to do with it. He said I had options I could put it in my account, or Western Union or put it on a gift card. I chose Western Union. He told me I could go to Western Union to pick up the money, but that I had to talk to his supervisor first. He told me to call his supervisor at 202-594-9638, adn she will tell me what to do. I called and a woman answered "Who are you wanting?" I could hear other people in the background. I said I got an ID number. She said I was chosen from the government and I need to get a $200 registration card from eBay. I started laughing. She said "What's so funny, what's so funny?" I said I shouldn't have to pay money to get money. She said you're not paying money, it's a registration card. I told her I don't understand why you need a registration. She told me I would get money because I don't work and I don't have a record, and I don't owe IRS. She asked how I would like the money, gift card, bank account or Western Union. I chose Western Union. She said it was from the government in Washington DC. She said she would walk me through it on the phone. She said I would get my $11,300 within 10 minutes through Western Union. I kept asking why she needed $200. She got upset with me and said if I don't want the money, she would give it to someone else. She really wanted me to stay on the phone with her when I went to buy the eBay card. I knew that you never have to pay money to get money.

"Called by woman first told me that due to me being a great tax payer and credit card payer.The government is going to give me as one time grant of $9000.00+. Gave me a code and a phone number to call. 518-704-3324 Said tell them this code GG1005 they will give me instructions receive the grant.

This person was a man (senior officer) told me to go to a store (Rite Aid) that would sell me an "Activation Gift Card", this was to be done with him on my cell phone the whole time. Instructed me don't discuss this with anyone else in the store. The government changed their way of dispersing grants and this was the most efficient"

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.
