Total money lost $350
Type of a scam Government Grant

Joe Williams with India type or middle eastern accent. He called it the National Institute or Institution of Health Department. I was told I'd get a "free" government grant but I had to go & buy $350 in Apple gift cards. Stupidity over took my better judgement and I did with a promise I would be receiving a $14000 grant. I just lost my job last week & this money would've been a tremendous help. The $350 came out of my tax return money card. I was going to use it for bills instead of throwing it away. After purchasing the Apple gift cards they said I had to pay an additional $1000 in taxes on it before I could receive it. I didn't have that kind of money. They also said at first the $350 was refundable then towards the end said it wasn't.

Type of a scam Government Grant

Called me in evening offering a $9800 free grant that I wouldn't have to pay back. I stupidly gave him my bank account number. Luckily I realized it had to be a scam before giving my bank routing info. But did call the bank first thing this morning to make preparations to be sure that they would not be able to get anything out of it. Please be careful and always remember "IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS"

Type of a scam Government Grant

I've been harassed by this number several times. The caller is usually a man with an Iranian accent sometimes it's a woman. They tell me I've won or been chosen for a government Grant ranging from $3,000 to $7,000 all they need is my bank account number. To send it to me. They won't leave me alone. I've told them several times if I've won a government grant send it to me, from the United States Treasure and by the U.S. mail. They tell me that's not an option it needs to be deposited in my bank account. I don't listen to any of it anymore I scream into the phone leave me alone and hang up

Type of a scam Government Grant

The caller ID indicated the number calling was 253-647-8525. The woman on the phone identified herself as calling for the US Government and indicating that I had been randomly selected to receive a $9,000 grant from the US government. She then started to ask personally identify questions. I disconnected the call and then called back the number. When I tried to call the number listed in the caller-ID I received a message that the call could not be completed at this time. Because I disconnected the call and did not provide any of the information requested there was no actual fraud only an attempt to commit fraud.
