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
This number has called many times with a recorded message. Finally I decided to do something about it!
My roommate received a call on his cell phone about a government grant. Strangely, the caller asked to speak to me. The caller ID said 'restricted'. The caller said I had a government grant coming to me. They were foreign and I could barely understand them. They asked if I wanted the money sent to me by mail, bank account(which I don't have), or some other way. They also said I had a clean record, including a bankruptcy record. Actually, I did file bankruptcy in 2003. They were very evasive about some questions I had, including the name of their company and how they got my roommate's cell number. When I said I wouldn't answer any more questions or agree to anything until I spoke with a supervisor or manager, they then gave me a number to call, a confirmation number, and told me to ask for a Kevin Parker. Out of curiosity, I called the number, which was 202-738-1924. The individual I spoke with, also foreign, proceeded to give me the same spiel the other guy did. When I again expressed my suspicions, the guy told me he would call me back in 20-30 minutes.
This too happened with me,,said i was a good samaritan and government wanted to give me a 7000. grant to use as i wished,,yeah right,,all soudned cool,,but i werent born Yesterday,,Government dont give you free anything,,,gave me a number to call back,,,202-738-4307 conf number SN707 his name was Martin and i.d 119......

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.
they said if i put 300 bucks down the USA government will give me a grant of 9k ,,, i dont have 300 bucks so i dont think i will get scammed today
I received a call today from Joe Miller. He claimed to work with the US Treasury and Grants department. The reason for his call was to inform me of my winnings. I was provided with a 7 digit permission code and a call back number for my "accountant". I let him know that if he really was with the government, mail me the information. He stated he wasn't able to obtain that info. He had a English accent, called from a blocked number, and it sounded like I was on speaker the whole time. The government will not give out money over the phone to random people. I didn't enter any kind of "lottery" either. Please don't fall for this people! The permission number given was: GG1102*
They say they are the federal government and they gave money grats for selected people They ask to purchase $300 Money Pak and give them the pin, then they ask to purchase $650 for the taxes, that NY and one of the Carolina states also charge the amount of $7500 or other whatever they tell you as the big money grants amount.
They are saying when they call that we requested that they call us. Only my husband and I live at this address, and neither of us requested them to call us. We don't even know who this company is.
These annoying recorded calls come in several times a day from different numbers.
Attention: This Is Definitely A Scam. The U.S. Government Does'nt Require A Person To Pay Money To Receive Money.
Yea thanks for the blogs I don't think I'd be stupid enough to pay to get paid. Government would never do that I texted them. There's blogs about you. And your wife brother and mother. Good luck in a prison shower
This recorded message did not identify themselves. I received a similar call from another number about 3 weeks ago.
They said they were calling from the Government Grant Department in Washington D.C. as a part of the Federal Governemnet and I was chosen (1 or 250 in my state) to receieve $7,800.00 in grant money because of my good credit. In order to recieve my funds, I need to purchase a greendot card from Walmart or Walgreens and put $200 on it to raise the limit. Also, I need to call his supervisor to verify my information and release the funds to my greendot card. Really crazy..
Some guy with an accent said he was calling on behalf of the US government and that I was awarded $1,000 grant ( one of 15, 000 people). There was a ton of background noise. I hung up, he called back & asked why I hung up on him..hahaha. I gave him an education and hung up again.
Any thing you have to put your money that you work for all week long its a scam the FED.GOV. need to catch the guys and ship them back to there country and get them out of the good old USA . God BLESS AMERICA
This is a scam flat out. Don't buy into it or you will end up kicking yourself for sending these people your hard earned money.
This is a fraud number saying that you recieved a Federal Grant for $7,000. Don't fall for it.
We have received several call from verious collection companies looking for the same person. Can you do something about this or are you one of the goverment agancies we should cut to help the budget?
This number is an unpublished phone number. CallerID Information shows "HUTTMAN CHRISTO"...
This phone number calls several times a week. When I called back, it said to enter my phone number. I do not trust it.
When caller gets no answer, there is a whistle or other noise left on answering machine.
Said that I have 7, 500 free grant money that I would not ever have to pay back. but I needed to pay a security deposit of $300.00 dollars through green dot money pak.
Grant from Obama's
This is the 5th time they have called on the last ten days and I have asked to not to call.
I got a missed call from 730102 number and later in the afternoon i received another call and I was talking to some guy who couldn't speak any clear English. He said I was picked to receive a government grant for $9,200 and said i had to go buy a Greendot refill card and put $230 on it and call him back to get a number from him to give to the bank and i would get the grant in cash or by check come on now the guy couldn't even talk with a steady voice he was hesitant and stuttering .
unkown Indian guy called me... said to call 202-738-1686 (gave me a code to) to collect my grant money from Dept. of Health & Human services... sounded way to good to be true. I had been filling out school info, so I thought maybe the grant came in. I did a look up and saw the other reports here. Did not call the number. It is a scam!!! please people be aware!!! thanks for getting the word out.
They did the same even told me my information. I have a question have they tried to send you mail or tried to call you again?
I did not answer. I figured it was a scam of some sort. Someone called my sister, said they were with Publishers Clearing House. They said she had won money and a Mercedes. They told her they needed money to process the check. This was from a different number. I am not sure how they got my number, I am on a do not call list already.
202-738-1682.Asian woman called rude nasty.government employees are not nasty when you ask them if they are legitimate. Caught on real quick. Then an Asian guy called right back asking for my husband. 7000.grant my butt..I've had my identity stolen before took an attorney and alot of money a.d time to get settled. The department of justice notified me by mail my identity had been stolen also by whom and what prison they went too.also notified me when these individuals were being paroled
This number calls twice a day and there is no message and no one says anything.
this number keeps calling even though im on do not call list.
Called me saying that I had been selected for a grant of $10,200 from the government and I had to pay a $180 processing fee to recieve the money by wire transfer within 30-40 minutes. Both people that I had talked to had an indian accent and was hard to understand. 最开始接到一个号码是202-697-7222，是一个女的打来的，英语说得不是很专业，告诉我说我的条件符合政府的要求，要给我$10,200.00的救助款，她说我有两种途径领取这笔款项，1：告诉她我的银行账户；2、告诉她我的银行卡号。我当时没多加考虑就告诉她了，然后她给了我一排确认号码，然后让我打另一个电话：202-738-1226，说跟电话里的人提供那个缺人码，我就能得到那笔钱。后来我打电话给那个号，一个男人说他会把钱转账到我的银行卡里，但是转账需要手续费，他说让我去CVS或者warmart去买一个moneypak卡，往里面存款180美金，然后告诉他卡号，他就会在半小时内将10200美金转到我银行里。幸亏我晚上下班晚，买了卡准备第二天一早再打电话回去告诉他卡号，就在准备睡觉前查一下这个号码，原来是个骗局，特此提醒大家，小心为妙。
This number has been calling twice a day for at least a week. They call anytime during the day and at night.
They call a few times a day and it is very irritating. I suspect this will be the first of many complaints. I'm sick of them.
Saying they were the federal branch its a fucking scammer
When I do talk to someone and ask them to take me off list they hang up!
202-738-1667- through a very thick accent I was informed that I was to receive $7000 tax free dollars tbat didn't have to be paid bacl. I was offered the three options...8 told. Him he could send it tgo me on a master card...so he asked me for my charge card number. At that point I told him to go f___ himself and hung up. Undetured, he called me right back and suggested the cash option...so I talked to him. Sort of fun really. He told me I should call the next day and that he would call to remind me. Armed with my instructions I waited for his call the today. When he called, I returned the call to his supervisor, but unfortunately got voicemail. I had planned to go along with it to the end and since I knew the game plan have a little fun at their expense.
wanted to give me "grant money" from us government....gave me this number to call sara rose who only got angey and hung up when I started asking questions..... SCAM!!!!
I really got scammed, i recieved a call by cel Nov 1, telling me I was chosen for a $7000 grant, but I had to sent $650 to pay the taxes on the money. Thinking it was legit because I have a sister who works out of Wasington, on Nov 2 I sent the money western union. he told me to hold, came back and said the banks had already closed and the would call me back tomorrow. Nov 3 called said send $460 more for IRS, I did. How do I get money back? HELP
This place has called previously and I told them to remove me from their list. I spoke to someone and told him not to call again or it would be reported, he said that they would keep calling. I have nothing to do with this company but they call quite often. Thank you for your help.

how ironic . . .the caller gave me this number to complain to about receiving international telemarketing calls!! have been receiving calls nightly from people with very heavy indian accents trying to sell one thing or another
They call all the time using different phone numbers and I can't tell them to stop calling because it is a recording.
This is nothing but a scam. They tell you that you can get 7,000 dollars from a grant through the government. Then they tell you that you have to put 290 dollars for a deposit. Yea right like the government is going to give you free money lol... I answered the number cause they call me all the time. I could not even understand these women lol.. Do they think I am stupid or something. I would never send money to get money lol.. Something needs to be done with this. I would like to know how to get them to stop calling me?
This is the 4th time they call in the last 4 weeks. When I dial back, it says the number you have reached is not in service.
this is at least the 3rd time this recorded message has come to my cell. i have tried to follow the prompts to tell them to stop calling but then they disconnect me!
Keep calling my Job asking if I want a loan tell them no and please stop call they tell me have paid $100.00 dollars t
This was a recording, so when I tried to call back to ask to be removed the number is not answered. It asks you to press "1" to be connected to someone. They provide no way to ask them to stop calling.
This number has called our house several times with a recorded message. I spoke with someone and asked them to please stop calling my house, only to be hung up on. I have even tried calling the number back to try to speak with someone about removing my number from their list, but to no avail. They never state the name of the company. I answered one of those calls and again asked them to please stop calling and the person just hung up on me. Thank you for looking into this matter.
