Total money lost $500
Type of a scam Government Grant

Called stated I was awarded a personal grant, that they do a random survey of citizens, you can't have been arrested, not filed for bankruptcy, give you an alpha numeric confirmation number, then you have to call a number and they activate the "password" by making you pay a $200 fee on a Google play card, then $500 then $1000 and they will reimburse you for the fee amounts. The explanation for the Google card is to protect you supposedly.

Total money lost $550
Type of a scam Government Grant

My family member was scammed out of $550 today by a caller with a foreign accent saying that he was calling from the U.S.treasury department. The caller then informed my family member that he was one out of 1700 people selected to receive a $9000.00 grant if he was unemployed, with no criminal record and a US citizen who pays his taxes on time. This grant was coming from the Health and Human resources department. All he had to do was go to Walgreens and buy prepaid google play cards then scratch of the silver box on the back of card and give them the numbers. In doing so this fee would free up the money so they could wire the money to Walgreens. They wanted him to stay on the phone with them while he was buying the cards. They gave him tracking numbers and grant serial numbers. They also gave him a federal reserve bank number. The number on the phone was showing that the call was coming from Washington, DC. #202-827-6836. After the caller got $550 from my family member. They then told him after that the fact that he was going to have to pay and additional $380. of state taxes in order for them to transfer the money across state line from New Your to Louisiana. Please google government grant scams it will tell you a lot more about this scam. So if you can investigate this scam and air it to let other’s know about this and hopefully this will help to prevent someone else from being victimized by these crooks.

I got a call around 3:00 p.m. yesterday from some one saying they were with the Treasury Department and I had been randomly selected for a $9,000 grant. I was only required to pay the $200 Western Union transfer fee but I had to pay it in 2 $100 transfers. I was told to go to CVS, Walmart, or a store like them and once I got there to call them. This didn't sound right to me so I called the ScamPulse.com and they said it was a scam.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I received a phone call twice so far on my cell phone. The man said that he was calling from the Treasury Department, and that I was randomly selected to receive a government grant of $9000. He said I would not have to pay this money back. He gave me a "conformation code" NA1015. He also gave me a phone number to call. 206 880 3945. The man said his name was Henry, and that he was a Verification Officer, in the Grant Department. The phone number he gave me was a Washington number. When I tried to call it, the number was not a working number. The phone number that appeared on my caller ID was not even a complete number. 952 290 786. I said to this man I have heard of this kind of thing being a scam, and he said "Oh no, it is not a scam". He had a very thick accent, and he sounded Asian of some sort.

Left a message stating they were the treasury department and a lawsuit has been filed against us for tax fraud. Continued to say if we don’t call them back this would be a second time to intentionally ignore federal law. I called the number back and I call a message that call was reject then the call was disconnected.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I have received numerous calls from Hungary, Washington D.C and New York, all with the same objective. They tell me they are from the Treasury Department and that I have been selected for a one time grant of $9,000.00 that does not have to be paid back. They tell me to go to these websites to confirm it is real after I ask if this is a scam. They then tell me this was put into place in 2009 by then president Barak Obama. After going to the websites I then just hung up on the caller. They attempted to call me back from different numbers. When I try to call back, I get a message saying the Google number can not receive phone calls.

I received this voicemail at 5:09 pm October 6, 2017: "...against you. The Treasury Department is also going to confiscate your bank accounts and including your passport and your Social Security number is going to be blacklisted as well. Before we proceed any further and take legal actions please reach us for more information and call this direct number which is 206-497-0435 I repeat 206-497-0435 thank you and have a good day..." I do not answer phone calls whose area codes I do not recognize so I let this call go to voicemail. I filed a report on Thursday of this week regarding two calls from Washington, DC stating that they were the IRS. All three calls have an automated voice; male voice fro Washington, DC number and female from Shoreline, Washington. Please advise me regarding these calls!

Type of a scam Government Grant

They said I had been picked to receive a government grant of $7,000.00. They said I could pick up at Western Union, Wal-Mart, Walgreens or CVS. They gave me a Grant # & said I needed to call 202-642-6215 to confirm it. I didn't even call that #. I could hardly understand what the guy was saying because of his accent, possibly Indian or Pakistanian. Just wanted to a complaint so that others would be warned & that maybe somebody would be able to put a stop to it.
