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"

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.

These people called stating I had been approved for a government grant, I paid processing fees of $1000.00. They later requested an additional $2000.00 which I explained I did not have, they then said they would send me a check to cover it and to call them as soon as I was able to deposit the $4000.00 check into my bank. The bank alerted me that this is a known scam.

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

Type of a scam Government Grant

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
