It's a scam. The call came from Ontario, Canada but he said he was calling from US and told me that I have won something but I knew it was a scam. He has a heavy Spanish accent and I told him that I will call him back and he left me this 202 number and the grant ID code. Be aware this number.
Got two calls from "Private Number" yesterday evening. Both times a message was left in a female computer voice saying that they had been trying to reach me and this was the final warning. "She" claimed the IRS was filing a lawsuit against me and I should call 202-657-4964 immediately to resolve the issue. Funny, last month I was receiving calls from a very heavily accented man saying the same things (although he claimed police would be at my door "shortly"). I guess they have resorted to the computer voice because nobody believes the IRS would outsource to India.
Didn't answer and they didn't leave a VM, so its probably a scam.
6.700 dollars grant money
I started getting them today i call back they wanted the last 4 of my ss# when i told them i was not giving them that info he was" i can not give you any information about your case, so don't waist your time" IM nor sure who this people are but when i asked what company they worked for will not give me that info.
I receive several a day of this type. Is this the result of the Obama administration's so called jobs that have been created? I getting sick and tired of having my privicy violated. Is our government so damn stupid that they can't correct this problem. I would like an answer for myself and all the other U.S. citizens that have to put up with this crap.

I never answer calls from unknown sources and file complaint only if the source calls repeatedly over course of several days or more.

I was told to call 206-855-3282 and I spoke with an Edward Michaelson he told me to go to a cvs store and purchase a green dot money pak card and reload it with $260 . I now feel stupid for doing this because when I called him back he told me to call 202-657-5808 and I did but by then I had already made the stupid mistake of giving him the pin number to the card I wasn't thinking and then I called the other number and spoke with a David Vellaan he gave me all the information I needed to go to western union and collect my $7000 but before I collect it I had to pay a state transfer fee of $750 after he told me that I decided to check up on the name Max William I feel so stupid because I justgave them $260. What I want to know is how did they know my home address if they called my cell phone my cell phone is not linked to my home address. I just want to crawl in a hole because now my husband is upset with me because it was his money the stole.I hope these people get caught and brought to justice. I thought I was smarter than that.
Curry-goat eating bastard. When in the history of this country does the US govt. call someone to offer money...But these are the scumbags that American businesses are going across sea hiring for less to nothing.
They call every day on my cell & it is a recorded message!
Just received the call about claiming $7000 I just need to call back to 202-657-5031 TO claim the free government grant. I did not call back. The lady had an Indian voice. I told her I was not interested in her scam and she said this a recorded conversation. What ever I am not stupid thanks but no thanks.
they hung up on me!
Was not home when they called, did not call them back either in case I would be just verifying that it is an actual phone number. I did not ask them to call or want them to call me.
Offered me 7000 dollar Grant I think it is a Scam they did not answer when aIr called They called me from this number 202 000 1111 which is a non working number when called back
said i had grant gave me a grant number of rd027 said i needed to get a money pak card for the amount of 300 security deposit that would be added to my 7500 dollar grant making it 7800 the name of the general manager in a heavy indian accent is christopher johnson
Gave me the number of his general manager 202-657-4493.. to call to receive $7,900 from the Federal Bank. . His accent was so thick and so eastern Indian that I could barely make out what he was saying.... just for the fun of it I may call the number which is in Washington DC and play along... just to see how much they want me to pay to get this $7900.....too funny....with the governmet not able to pay their own bills, I am supposed to believe they are giving money away just because I don't have a bank loan or have never been arrested....OOOPSIE... I do have a mortgage and I did get a speeding ticket.....oh darn now I guess I won't qualify.....LOL I just want to see if that guy has an accent. I can't believe people are falling for that.
said I was selected for a government school grant and they would put into my account.He gave me a grant number and a woman to call named elima Johnson no one answered the phone.
So this guy Mark Anderson called about a $9200 grant...I was like yeah like im going to fall for it..so he gave me this other number to call n spoke to John Spencer..so I was just going with it to see how far they would go..He was like go to the nearest store and get a Green Dot Money Pack paper card which is $5 and that I would have to upgrade it since I was getting a large amount of money. That I would have to tell the cashier to put $350 from my pocket in that card and that he would be on the line the whole time...I was like really dude im not falling for that bull...He was so desperately asking how long is it gonna take u to go to the store and call me back... I was like you might want to sit down cuz I'm going to take a while...so I was like BYE FELISHA!!! As im writing this they keep calling me...They are so lame but somebody should do something before someone inocent falls for it..
This is the 8th call from this ANNOYING, OBNOXIOUS, INFURIATING company in the last 2 weeks. I don't understand why you can't stop this trash?????
Same scenario, claiming to be from Government Grants. Man and a woman with a cell phone #, background noises sound like from their house. I called Washington dc police at 202-727-4159 for fraud and scam phone calls
