Type of a scam Government Grant

A man that could barely speak English told me he was with the government, and he wanted to give me a grant.

He said the amount was for $3,400 and that I could get the money at a western union. He gave me a code MX428 and said that he was transferring me to an account verification manager. Then he gave me the wrong street address. I told him that it wasn't correct, and then he said he needed that information to verify my identity like my age. I didn't give it to him. I told him that I felt like this was a scam. He insisted he was just verifying information, then he hung up on me when I told him I didn't believe him.

I received a phone call which left a phone # to call about free money of $11,300. That phone number was 315 510-9796. On returning the call I talked to a person and he told me because I was a loyal citizen I qualified for this free money. I did not have to pay it back and no taxes would be taken. I was then instructed to call another phone #. This perso was to give me further instructions how to receive this money. That phone # was 747 666-5104 and the person I talked was named David Johns, this as the number to call back if we were disconnected . I asked to have the money sent by check which they could not do it had to use Western Union or give them my bank account # which I knew was something I was not going to do. I was instructed to use my cell phone and he was going to instructed to go to Wall Mart and buy two Itune cards, I asked how much the cards would cost which he would tell me. He did call my cell phone which I did to answer because I was checking with ScamPulse.com to see if there was anyone else who had received this type a call. After checking with the ScamPulse.com and seeing this was a scam I tried to call David Johns at the phone # he had given 747-666=5104 Oh guess what, no one was at that number you had to leave a message. As you can tell I did not go to Wall Mart to buy any ITunes cards. Because I am a loyal citizen who pays her bills I know the Government does not give free money. In all my life the Government has taken my money. This scam sounds good but don”t fall for it. The only thing I this life that is free is God’s salvation He has paid all fees.

Type of a scam Government Grant

A lady named Jessica called from the 2027070707 number and told my that I had be selected to receive a government grant in the amount of $14,589.00. In order to receive the grant I had to call one of the other numbers listed above to speak with my grant transaction specialist. I had to provide the specialist with my case reference number of SS015 and they would then tell me how to proceed. Upon calling the 2532873535 number I was put into contact with a gentleman named Travis Smith with a Badge ID and all. He proceeded to tell me in order to receive this grant I had to go through a verification process.

To do this I had to go to the nearest Dollar General, purchase a google play card in the amount of $300. He had to stay on the phone with me the entire time I drove to town and went in to purchase the card. He also instructed me that the cashier may ask for my ID for the purchase but because I live in a small town the cashier Once I did that I had to tell him the time stamp from the receipt as well as the verification code under the silver scratch-off bar. I provided him with this information and he proceeded to complete the verification process. He then said that he would need my debit card information to process the funds transfer. I again provided him with this information. He then told me that the transaction had been processed and I should be seeing the funds in my online banking. When I told him that it was not he then proceeded to tell me that the state of Texas w[censored]d the fund until the taxes, in the amount of $9,999.00 had to be paid before the state would release the funds. I told him that I did not have that kind of money. He then claimed that his department would cover whatever amount I did not have. I said ok say I could do $200 he said that would work but that I would have to go back to the store and get another Google Play card. He told me that if I did not proceed with the $200 transaction that the IRS would debit my checking account $699.00 for the taxes and that I would be arrested first thing this morning for tax fraud. This is when I figured out I had been scammed. I proceeded to tell him I was going to call the Sheriffs Dept. with him on the line and he at first said ok. Then when I went to dialing the number he hollered at me that he was just going to cancel the transaction and that the $699.00 would come out of my account in 10 minutes and the cops would be at my job in the morning. He then hung up. I immediately called the local sheriffs dept and had an officer come out and take a report and I called and cancelled my debit card. No other transactions were processed on my account.
