Type of a scam Government Grant

I have been awarded a u.s.government grant for $9200. to be used however i wish. Was informed that i do not need to give my ss#

Call 718-514-7372 and give the grant # I was given. When I called that number they put me on hold. According to reverse phone directory the 718 number is in the Bronx and the 202 number is a bandwidth.

Consumer was called by someone saying they were with the government and offering a grant. Person said her name was Jessica Foster in NY. Consumer was told her name was randomly picked because she is unemployed. Was told she would get a grant $9,000 and pick it up at Walmart. The person on the phone asked for her checking account number. Consumer did not give it. (315) 628-1515 was also another number given.

text message saying I won a facebook profile from WCAB radomly selected. go get 750.00 on a walmart or an itunes card and take a picture and send it to them. They will then send info as to how to send it to fedex after they get the picture and they will send the cash prize. Constantly badgering me about getting it, finally stopped after hours of going back and forth and my daughter told them to leave me alone and she was heading to police station.

Friday 9/14 I received 8 phone calls from 347-880-1230 before noon, of which I answered twice and was informed I was selected for government grant money. Both times I asked them to not call me again and take me off their list. I then received an additional ELEVEN (11) calls from 369-445-2180 telling me that again my number was selected for government grant money. Of the 11 calls, I was able to answer probably 5 - and each time asking to be removed from list. The last call I asked to speak to a supervisor and informed him that I was respectful in asking all the other times to not be called and informed that I had reported both phone numbers via the do not call registry and requested again to not be called again. Monday 9/17 I began receiving calls from 369-584-2536 and again, same story of government grants. I told the guy to listen clearly to me - and he then interrupted me and said NO YOU LISTEN TO ME - I hung up at that point. If I do see the call come through, which there have been more since this morning i have just been answering and crinkling paper into the phone or turning music up very loud. Hoping they will get the hint. I truly don't know how to get these people to stop calling me.

Sounds like a cold call right away. The only thing they know about you initially is your name and phone number. They tell you they will wire 9,700 dollars to a walmart, wells fargo, etc. To be able to to that they need to verify who you are either by birth date, date of graduation, driver's license number....etc. I never got past this request but they are relentless in their persistence. They call me 3 times an hour and this has been going on for 2 days now. Always a different person and sometimes a different number but the same pitch about a grant that I have been selected to receive. Some of the numbers they called from:

369-525-3658 / 369-742-3658 / 369-475-2563 / 369-422-6523 / 369-486-2549 / 364-252-1028 /

They called me and told me that I was eligible for an $8,000.00 government grant. All I would have to do is go to Walmart or Western Union, call Michelle at (253) 260-4390 and give her the grant approval number, and get a money order for $199.00. They said once they received the money order, I would receive the $8,000.00 and the $199.00 back

Person called claiming student had been randomly selected from a pool of college students that met certain criteria. Requested bank routing/account number to deposit money into. Offered a different call back number to discuss other payment options. Person had a lot of personal information (name, age, zip code, phone etc) and called on the first day of school, so likely had knowledge she was starting college.

Initially, the first caller a woman called from 456-482-9563 in unclear English and stated that they were offering government grant. She had my name and zip code. I was curious to hear the rest of the offer, and answered about 3 questions. After that she provided me phone number to call, to which I was to give a certain CODE after I answered more questions. I did not answer the other questions, however, I did call the number she gave me 518-768-1678 and proceeded to give a "made up" code number to the man that answered. After that I was transferred to another department. Then I was disconnected. Then I received a text message saying "Hi you sounds to old I don't want to [censored] with you hahaha". Then a second text message saying "hahahahaha". I then called back the number, and stated I wanted my number removed. A man answered saying to me "are you F-***" spelling the words out. I restated I wanted my number removed. That's when he asked what's your name? My wife said to me don't they know your name? And that's when he said to me, "I don't want to talk to you, what's your wife's name. Let me talk to your wife so I can [censored] her". I hung up.

He sent another text message saying [censored] you. I called the number 518-768-1678 again and the recording says "The Google subscriber is not available, please leave a message". I tried calling them again and got a child like voice (kind of like disguising the voice) answering. I hung up and called again. I got a man and he asked "Is this [censored]?" I told him I was going to call again until my number is removed from the harassing. I told them that their number is already shown as a "Government Scam" or "Fake Federal Scam". Then he said give me your wife's number, give me that lady's name and number and I'll call her so I can satisfy her. I hung up. And called back in again. This time the voice that was child like started 'singing'. The singing seemed to be like a mantra of some sort. And obviously it was to get me tired to stop calling them back, but since they were threatening me by making the call in the first place and then threatening what they want to do to my wife, well I am going to continue to call them until my number is removed from their system. After that I got too more text with a [censored] you message. Why doesn't the Department of Justice and Google go after these folks?

I received a phone call from a lady stating that she worked for the government and that I was granted by the government a loyalty grant of 9,000 that I could use on anything except illegal things. She called me from 646-818-9380. She said that this grant was not have to be paid back. She provided me with DC number for the grant and a number to call to speak with another agent.That number was 315-600-8537. After speaking with the gentleman he stated that I was being given this grant and that I would receive it through western union. He stated that in order for me to get the 9,000 grant I needed to purchase a 200.00 card at the store that I was going to for western union. I informed the gentleman that if the grant was free why should I have to pay 200.00 for a card when you can just send the money through western union. Scammers. They did not get me though. I have more since than that.
