These people have called me 3 times. Saying that the Government have select me to get a Government Grant. They said that I will have to get a Money Grant Access Card from Dollar General if I don't have one. And that its going to cost me $200.00 dollars for the card. But the money will not go to anyone. And I will get that money back. They as said that I will not have to pay the Grant back. And I will not have to pay any taxes or anything. These are the number they called from 1-899-814-4721 and the other number to do everything and to verify your Grant this is the number 718-285-8059. My question is this a scam because I feel like it is. And the say other people have been select as all to get the Government Grant. I would really like to know. Thanks so much. And one more thing they also said you have to have a ID number when you call the second number they give you.

- Othello, WA, USA

They called from a Washington DC number (202) 517-1657 and said I have been selected to receive a $9,000 grant because I have been in good standing with the Government. I paid my taxes and have not gone bankrupt in the last 7 years. They knew my name, address, and phone number and repeated that information back to me. They needed a bank card or credit card to deposit the money on to. Then they gave me a Grant confirmation code of AM888 and said to call their supervisor to release the funds into my card. He said to call Mr. Melvin at (512) 646-0919. I called and Mr. Melvin said he would release the grant on to my card. It would come from the Federal bank of California. I asked him how I receive a grant when I didn't apply for one. He said it is the government rewarding taxpayers. That I do not have to pay it back. Then he said I need to Moneygram or Walmart to Walmart $250 to activate my account so he could release my grant money. I said no so he got mad and said well he will find someone who needs the money more than me. I said that's fine.

I have been receiving calls from someone claiming they are from Washington and that I have won a Federal Grant.  They said I was eligible because I had paid my taxes on time. I was told it was an $8,000 grant.  They gave me a claim number and a telephone number to call for further information.  The number they told me to call was 202-657-4610.

- Laconia, NH, USA

I was contacted by telephone four times in two days by someone saying he worked for Federal Government Grants saying I had won a grant.  That a small number of people had been picked randomly to get this grant.  He wanted me to go to Walmart and send a money order for $170.00 as a registration fee and then they'd send my grant money of $4,800.  They gave me a number to call - 646-583-0671.  I called the number and it was a "chat hotline" for men and women.

She was instructed to go and make a Money-Gram transfer of $750 to a random account. Scammers called the consumer multiple times on numerous occasions. Scammers were rude and forward with the consumer. Consumer was told that it was a scam and wanted to report it to BBB for further investigation.

9000 Government Grant for being a good person and paying taxes on time

- Palm Bay, FL, USA

Caller represented himself from the US Dept. of Health and Human Services who is "authorized" to give me a grant of $8400. I requested to know from which program and/or division with the US-DHHS and the caller was unable to provide. I requested to know what the grant if for and he said it is for me to use on whatever I want. I didn't believe that and continued to ask questions of the caller until he chose to cuss me (using the f-word) complaining that I wasn't listening to him. I asked him if he was a scammer and he didn't know how to answer. I repeated all my previous questions again telling him I would repeat until I received the correct answer from him. He escalated his frustration. I asked for his supervisor and/or manager and he became even more agitated. A "manager" came online only to repeat the previous discussion. I requested a website and proof that they were not scammers. The website given was; the website "looked" official; I told the caller I don't give information over the phone and he implied he would send me an email. No email has been received.

A foreign man call me and said I have been selected to receive some government grant money in the amount of $8,500. Asked me if i wanted it on my debit card, western union, money gram or direct deposit. Then he gave me a ref #KV143 and told me to call a different number. I called, the person on the phone said his name was Brian Douglas. He told me to go to my nearest Western Union, fill out the form, oh and there's a $250 security deposit. Once I have the form filled out, then i call him back at (646) 583-0103 and he'll tell exactly where to send the money. after I send him $250, they will then release the government grant money to me. Oh and that I will receive my security deposit back after they receive the money.

they said I was selected in my area for a grant for thousand two hundred dollars,but wanted me to send them two-hundred and sixty five dollars, and said that would be sent back to me after my application was approved. I did not send any money but upsets me deeply because I am a college student who could use the money.

- Santa Barbara, CA, USA

I received a call stating that I'd been chosen to receive an $8,000 grant from the Federal Government. It was clear to me that the man was calling from a call center, as I had trouble hearing him over the background noise.

I was given an "Approval ID" number, a "Security Code", a website, and a phone number to call 206-925-3966. I was to call the number, give them this information and they would finalize my grant.

I did not call the number, instead, I got online and found that other people had been called as well and it's a scam.

I was called from somewhere in Missouri 573-714-6676. The man said his name was Eric (or Derrick) Bell.
