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.
called wanting same now i call them prank calling all day
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!
well I am naïve to these things I guess if they are scammers I got taking for a lot....
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
Said they worked for the federal government and hungup on me when I told them to delete my information from their system. Asked for my account number and several more details of personal information. REPORT IMMEADIATELY
I just received a similar call from a lady "Mary Parker" with an India accent saying I was receiving a $7800 federal grant. I was told to purchase a green dot money voucher for $4.95 at walmart or cvs or walgreens and to call the loan officer before doing anything. I was informed that instantly $1000 would be available to me but in order to get the rest I need to pay $200 cash toward the card and then I could get it refunded right back. Still searching for answers to this- all the scams I see are about loans through payday or cash advance
When you try to call the number back they want me to key my 10 digit number in to prevent my number for any future annoying phone calls. Can't you stop these people? They have gone from calling my home to my cell phone now!
Woman's name in the recorded message. Also received same call last week from the same number.
we get calls from this number almost every day, we have repeatedly tried to get them to stop calling us.
me too!! This number call me multiple times a day, since early in the morning til late in the evening
trying to sell something. I can barely understand the caller.
They are calling every day!
This men call me and toll me I have to pay $680 for fees to receive a grants he said I m qualify for. I think he is a thief.
This is very annoying, and wouldn't stop calling.
A lady named Veronica (sounded Middle Eastern) called me blocked and told me that I was randomly selected to receive a grant for $9000.00 and all I had to do was call this number 202-657-4853 and give them the code number that she provided me with and they were going to send me $9000.00. I called and the guy said that his name was Calvin Jones and that he worked for the US Government and his badge number was CH257 and the department that he worked for was US Government Grant and Finance Department. Then he proceeded to tell me that the money was not a loan or a grant and that it was from US Federal Taxes and that it was tax free money. He wanted me to go to the western Union and pay a security deposit of $300.00 dollars and I will receive my $9000.00. I told him that it was a scam and I hung up on him.
These people call several times a day. Half the time they hang up on me. It's completely harassing.
they called me from 310-777-1324 saying i won a 7k grant. they had information on me that i think can be looked up in a phone book. told me to call 202-657-4180 to talk to jeffrey the sr accountant manager to get my money. he hung up on me.
Ok so I received a call from 530-559-1657, saying they were from the government and they have a $7500.00 grant for me to pick up. They ask for your checking account number and or debit card and birthdate. THey tell you to call in with a "money Approval number". to 202-657-4439, I told the guy that I wasn't paying for the money. If there any fees take it out of the $7500.00 he hung up on me.
I just received a call about Government selected me for 7k Grant money... Sounds way to good to be true its a scam right????
LOAN SCAMMERS BEWARE BEWARE !!!!
No idea who or why my cell number is being targeted.
total scam, i had the same experience with some guy with a bad accent. I want to report them but not sure how to go about it!
These Cock Suckers keep calling me then hanging up. It never stops!!!! Does the "Do Not Call" list do anything?
They call 2 or 3 times a day!
They call me and tell me they have a check for me and sometimes they call and say I've wone the lottery!
Man with Indian sub-continent accent claiming to be from a Government Grant organization with $7000 available immediately. All I had to do was go to my nearest Western Union with a credit card...He knew my name, my number, my email address and where I lived. BE VERY CAREFUL!
This is a scam, any loans or payday loans you never pay up front.
Called my cell phone. Has think accent. Said he was calling from Washington DC, worked for the Federal Grant Department and said I was being awarded a 7K grant because I paid my bills on time!!! Asked me if I wanted the grant, so I said "sure, just send me a check!" He said they don't issue the money in a check format. Wanted my credit card or bank account information. So I asked him for his Fed Employee ID number and he said he wasn't allowed to give that information out.
I get a call from this number everyday i pick up and say hello they hang up right away. Its getting anoying.
They want money, then you pat up to 250.00 with a promise of getting grant money from the US Federal Reserve Bank, then after you do not receive this grant, you call back asking "why" and they say they want another 400$$$, and that is as far as I got!!
they got me for 170 dollars
i would like to know what and who this is about
I've asked repeatedly to take my phone number off. They called me today and I got a recording to hold as the had an important message for me. I hung up as I was getting waited on. They just called me again. The calls are coming in twice a day even though I have told them I'm not who they are looking for.
THEY CALL ME WITH ALL MY INFORMATION AND ASK ME THAT I GOT A GRANT OF 10000 DLLS AND THEY TAKE OUT $400 OUT FROM THE GRANT AND TO GO TO WESTERN UNION AND DEPOSIT $110 BUT I DIDNT I CHECK HERE FIRST TO SEE WHATS GOING ON....
These text messages cost me money as I do not have text plan. I want reimbursement and shut them down. Thank you.
I will continue to register complaints until the calls stop. I DO NOT BELIEVE, FOR 1 SECOND, THAT THEY WILL STOP CALLING ONLY BECAUSE I ASKED THEM TO. They have never stopped before, so I doubt they will until the feds step in and force them to stop. Please do something about this situation.
They have the wrong people but we cant get them to stop.
They call all the time, you pick the phone up and there is nobody there. Have picked it up and told not to call, but they call all day long.
They call about several times a day, have asked not to call. On more than 10 time they call for me and know my wife. the phone number comes up a just a 1 on the caller id and unknown name so for company number I put a 1 and then all 0 after it.
They call every day.
