I received a phone call from 202 986 2207 telling me I was going to receive $9000 gov grant. I asked it if was a loan and he said no that it was just free money. That i was chosen. He knew my name and old address. He told me to call Derick Clark at 202 738 4541. When I asked about the money and what it had to do the with gov he ignored my question. He ignored most all my questions.
A call from a heavily accented female stated I have been selected from a random group of sr. citizens with no criminal record to receive a grant for 9200.00. I had to call a second number and was told to deposit $100 and I would get a money order for the $9200.00. When I said I couldn't do that, the other party hung up. The caller was identified as (1st call) 416-364-1111-Toronto (Call Back #) 202-738-4158
They are still trying to scam people. I got a call from them today about a grant. But I would have to pay $310.00 for them to verify who I truly am. but the $310.00 would be refunded back to me with the grant making it $7,310.00... Its a SCAM people please do not do it!!!

Gave me this number to return a call to his supervisor . Can you tell me if this is legit ament I had been checking grants to help my Grand daughter pay her College debt. She Graduated Purdue now working & paying her loans. But I think I am being scammed. Respectively Mrs Mary Ann Puterbaugh
Calls from this number are frequent. I have noted they are calling a number on the 'Do Not Call' list.
Called - too faint to hear and hung up.

I call Alex at (209)782-0062,(202)738-1921 I log him in and low and behold he showed me exe…TROJAN virus and all my personal files and information could have been compromised and assured me he was going to save the day…Lucky me..He took over my computer for couple of hours and was fixed BUT for 1 year for 199.00.And he told me to ONLY purchase a GREEN DOT MONEY PAK because all the others make you put personal info which was dangerous! I drive all over looking for this Green Dot money pak I get one and call him to give him the 14 number on back(scratch off)number he calls me back after few minutes to tell me It had 0 (zero) balance I go back to the store trying to figure this clever scam. He said to purchase another Green Dot card he said he called Green Dot customer Service and they will issue my 200.00 back to me, I said call them and 3 way so that I can hear for proof he said hold on and pretended to be that customer service guy funny he had the same accent and lisp, I hung up and felt horrified and violated! I put my computer back on to find he was my computer looking for Hindu movies, I got scared and shut it down. I am totally convinced they worked together to scam me and am highly suspicious about a deliberate attempt to install a TROJAN virus In my computer, he showed me the Trojan virus.There is one caveat He left a message on my voice mail to call him, BUT he forgot to hang up I have a conversation in Hindu with the 2 men. I will ATTACH with this email form here to Washington or whomever this warning should help, warn, prosecute, publish and I want to help stamp out these SCAMS! I've had no problems up until Friday Aug 12th 2014 5:15pm my cell rang with I had paid 499.00 I had to get issued a 499.00 refund for poor service the first time Second time by a Indian woman who bashed prior coworker and insisted I buy from her 499.00 I've had nothing but aggravation time and a lot of money.
They just hang up after I answer the phone
they said I won a7k grant that didn't have to be paid back but I had to send them 150.00 on a green dot card. Its all a scam. I said I knew I was being scammed and she hung up on me
Lower our credit card interest rate. They hung up on me when I said we were on DoNot Call List
loud, noisy recorded lady voice.
I have received a call from this number: 202 738 1924 the person who called me was not from the USA but he said that he is calling from the gov. mentioning about my good records and paying my taxes on time and good records... the funny thing here is I have just arrived to the States and I don’t even have a Social Security # yet.. He give me a name of his super visor (Steve Taylor) after I made some researches the number contacted me was found as a Fraud. I advise not to give any personal information and not any responses..
This must be the 100th time that I have reported this company. Sometimes it says press "3" and they will stop calling. They never did.
THEY CALL EVERY NIGHT. I CALL THE NUMBER AND GET A RECORDING ONLY. THIS IS HERASSMENT AND I WANT IT STOPPED.
Yet another call from the same company- just from yet another number.
When I tried to speak with someone to have my number removed she disconnected the call.
just looked this up as I was talking to him and thanks to your comments here, I was able to read them to him and then told him to officially remove me from his call list!
Scammer asking for ach details
they send spam text messages. i've asked them to stop in the past.
We are private about our information. Our phone number is also unlisted per our request with the phone company. We do not give our number out to companies.
It's a scam. Received call from Utah # 385-313-3974 and was told I had been chosen to receive a US Government grant for $7000. Answered some questions and was told to call this number to get the grant. I called this number and was told in order to receive the grant that I needed to send them a $200 security deposit via Western Union or thru a MoneyPak voucher available at Walgreens, CVS, 7-11, etc. Naturally I didn't send them any money. I told "Cynthia" (who had an Indian accent and therefore most likely a Buddist background) that she was totally screwing her Karma by stealing good people's money and that her Karma would pay her back. Then we politely said goodbye to each other and hung up.
They called me and said I received 9000$ government grand for free, all I would have to do is pay 200$ for a transaction/application fee. The money would be wired to me while I am on the phone... I checked on the BBB website and found that this is a scam, please be carefull and dont fall for it
This is the second time this company has called. I did press 1 and was advised by the recording that my number would be permanently removed. Apparently that wasn't true since I again received the same call.
I had the same experience with this scam the man called to inform me I was selected for a granted. He even gave me a number to claim my money GG11012 and the phone number to call was (202) 738-1055. As he was talking to me I looked the phone number and it came up that this was a scam. I told the man this scam and got mad and used profane say I waste his time.
After I told this person to remove me from the list, he started calling me names and using profanity. They need to be reported to the FBI... matter of fact, I'll do it myself.
I got a call from 408 627 7767, Karen French. She said she was calling from the US Federal Government Grant dept. That I should call 202 739 4646 and givre my cofnirmation #GG110--. I suspected scam, and was right.
This started with a recorded message. When I held on for a rep - it was obviously a scam. As soon as I asked them who they were - they hung up.
The guy keeps calling to report that my computer has a security flaw in the microsoft program. I have a Mac. He gets upset when I want to speak to a manager or get an address to report to BBB. He keeps calling and all call back to him are either busy or recording of "disconnected". I want this guy found and put in jail for harassment!
I have gotten multiple calls per day coming up unavailable. Said I had a US Grant for $7500. Asked for employee ID and was given DG6089 and asked whom his sup was and her number. He told me her name is Michelle Williams and gave me this number of 202-738-4039. My bf tried called and no answer. I called and a woman picked up whom said her name was "Clara". She was very rude to me stating I needed a "grant number." Must be working for Scott Walker's re-election....stealing from the poor.
seriously? i laughed and listened to all his prompts. hahaha yes it was an indian male with the name Rachel. scam.
This is the second call from this same number today. I am on a fixed income and cannot afford to pay for these text messages. I AM GETTING TIRED OF GETTING THESE MESSAGES AND CALLS.
I am to receive $7000 from the Government to spend on personal use. 202-556-5522 the caller number. Then she gave me 202-738-4616 her manager Sam Benjamin.
Had missed calls from this number. Tried to call back both on cell and landline. Only get a message that call can't be completed as dialed. Began receiving scam call from other numbers at this same time. Most can't be called back on as either you receive busy signal, sent to voice mail, or number is disconnected. When you do speak to a person (when you answer their call) it always someone with heavy accent wanting to speak with someone that you've never heard of. Here is list of other numbers I received calls from all in one day. Also received calls with anonymous showing on caller id. 409-359-5364 606-981-0160 601-434-9000 439-523-8785 801-396-7956 601-329-2115

when I asked the representative what was the name of his company he hung up on me. I then called the number back and there is a recorded message that says to push the number 1 key on your phone to continue.
