Type of a scam Government Grant

I was called and told I was selected for a $9000.00 grant. That the US Treasury was awarding one time grants at random. I was given a code# and phone number to call. With the second call, I was told this was a once in a lifetime grant. I was given three options of how to receive the money. Then I was told the fastest way to get the money was to go to a western union and I would have to buy two different cards, one to register and another one. The cost was$200.00 that would be refunded as soon as I got the money. I would be required to be on the phone with them through the process. I told them I couldn't do anything until I got off work. The man said call as soon as you get off work. I didn't I got online to check it out.

Person keeps calling over and over. First they called and said they are with the US Treasury Department and that they have $9,200 to give me since I have never committed a crime, filed bankrupt and have paid all my debt back. I then hung up. They called again and told me I owed money and that I would be arrested if I didn't pay it back. When I told them I knew they were scammers he then threated me and my family. Saying they new were I lived and would kill us all.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I received a call today by a gentlemen with a foreign accent , claiming to be from the Treasury Department , using the name Albert Johnson. He told me he was calling to let me know that I had been selected to receive 9200 dollars in the form of a Government Grant. He told me that I was chosen because I had no Bankruptcy's on my record and I could use the money for anything that I wanted except alcohol and gambling. He left me a number to call (1-513-203-3847) and speak with his superior and he also gave me a confirmation code(GG2086) that I needed to provide to his superior to identify me as the person to receive the grant. He told me that once I contacted his Superior and gave him my Confirmation code the 9200 dollars would be deposited into my account. Mr. Johnson repeatedly kept reminding me that he was not going to ask me for any personal information at this time.

Received automated phone message: "This message is intended to contact you regarding an enforcement action executed by the US Treasury, intending your serious attention. Ignoring this will be an intentional second attempt to avoid initial appearance before a magistrate judge or a grand jury for Federal criminal offense. This is the final attempt to reach you to resolve this issue immediately and to speak to a Federal agent. The departments call back number is 409-299-3560."

Petition notice to Dept US Treasury final notice, before it goes to court or you get arrested...left message on phone when I didn't pick up. They did not use any specific name. I know it's a scam by listening to it and have no intention of calling.

I have kept computer generated voice mail

Received a call from "David Martin" of the US Treasury Department informing me of a pending legal action against me. I have received this call 4x in the past couple months, but I was home this time. I called the number that was given, and a man with a heavy Indian accent answered. When I asked about it, he hung up. I called back and he told me it was WRT my 2012 income tax return. When I challenged him, he hung up again. I called back and a woman with a heavy Indian accent answered. This time, she told me it was WRT my 2013 income tax return. I could hear others in background making similar calls. I was again hung up on after I challenged her with my own questions.

Recorded voicemail claiming to be US Treasury that I needed to call back about an 'enforcement action'. I'm sure they would have tried to collect money if I were foolish enough to return the call.

Guy called at around 8:20 this Saturday morning, claiming to be with the Treasury. He claimed he needed my assistance on a financial matter, and that if I ignored, I could face prosecution. Not sure if he's legit or not, but when I did a reverse phone lookup, all that I found was that the number was a land line based out of Blue Island, Illinois.

I received 4 recorded phone calls in one day (Feb. 5) from an individual with an accent who identified himself as Darryl (or Harold) Williams. He said it was in regards to a judicial action from the US Treasury and I would have to appear before a magistrate if I deliberately ignored his call. The phone number I was supposed to call was given as: 972-587-7110. I hung up and did not call the number.

He said,"Hi, This message is intended to contact you. My name is Daryl Williams. (can't understand the next part).. this is an action executed by the US Treasury Department. Ignoring this will be an intentional offense. To avoid appearance before a magistrate judge, or a grand jury for a federal criminal offense, you must contact me at 972-587-7110. Repeats number.

They are threatening with federal inditement charges, I think it said something about the US Treasury but it was very unclear and sounded like a robot. They do not say who the call is for but do say this is their second attempt to reach someone. They called from 1 202 657 6381 and left a message on our answering machine
