Called my friend telling her she has been given a $9000 grant. Wanted personal info from her.
This is a SCAM! Lady from DHHS for the federal gov't told me I qualified for a $5,000 grant and to call another number to receive a western union money transfer when I wouldn't give her my debit or checking account number. Both phone numbers were female and had heavy accents....nice try but I was not born yesterday.
Offered to get me a grant. Since the caller refused to ID themselves, I will not phone them back.
She said I was eligible for grant money from US government. I was suspicious that this was phishing, so I asked for a call back number without giving her any of my information. She gave me a grant approval number and the call back number of 202-738-1247. When I looked up the number on the internet, it appears it is associated with scamming.
I just received this call also but from someone claiming to be Mark Phillips with U.S. Treasury Office. He also had a thick Indian accent. Did not call him back
It is some refinance scheme.
I screen all calls that I do not recognize with my Caller ID and answering machine and do not answer calls I do not recognize.
I have requested to be taken off of their list other times.
FL location internet suggests Nigerian scam?
Was told grant $ 7000 .. Thought it was about the grant $ I receive from my college. Sounded fishy so I googled. Sounds like I was right ! Was told to call this # for federal grant dept. I will not be calling it and will now proceed to report to federal gov as it is a crime to impersonate the Feds!
Called concerning free grant money, of which they said I qualified for. They gave me a call back # and a Grant file # ef822.
Yes Venesa Falis, I am suppose to call you back at Wallgreen's before I purchase a Green Dot card. Well, I am not going to call you back and I have the State Police monitoring my phone number in case you call back. You remember me, my APPROVAL # IS MF7371. Whoever you people are at the National Mall near the Pentagon, are very close to ending your scams.
I received a call today from 202-738-158. The caller stated they were from the Federal Government and that I was selected among 1500 people to receive $9000 in grant money to spend how I chose. They wanted me to go to a Money Gram store and put up a $250 security deposit. IT IS A SCAM!!!! SCAM!!! SCAM!!! No money is required by the US government when receiving grant money. I called the number back and the same person answered the phone. I told the person "shame on you for lying and stealing from people". I told them that what they do is vile and despicable. The person told me that "I was a failure in life" and hung up in my face. NO government employee in a legitimate position would EVER speak to its customer like that. SCAM>>>SCAM>>>SCAM!!!!
This is a scam. I received the call and was left a prerecorded message it was the IRS, and to call back.If it was the IRS, they would leave a 1800 callback.
This company called three times in one day.
I have gotten this call twice. It is a recorded message saying it is the last time they will try to reach us about the IRS filing a law suit against us. The number to call back is 202-239-6007. I think it is a scam.
These are scams, clearly. If anyone calls you saying your selected for a grant and want the last 4 digits of your social and to call back when you got a PREPAID credit card... ROFL you deserve to lose your money if you fall for this one. i mean cmon...
says I have a Grant for 9700 dollars
I received a call informing me I qualified to receive 9,000 in my checking account or savings account, debit/credit card. But before receiving the funds into my account I need to drive to Wal-Mart, some store and dial 202-580-8227 in the parking lot. He tell me what to do, I need to pay 200.00 for transfer fee. I told him I didn't have 200.00 nor did I no anyone....he was very persistent in asking me to contact friends or family to get the 200.00. If anyone should call you from a 202 area code from district of Columbia DO NOT buy into that mess. It's a SCAM. THIS SHOULD BE STOPPED AND THEY SHOULD BE ARRESTED.
5 calls today, non-native english speaker. each time i request they do not call again. this last time I threatened them with the FBI and the State Dept because it's unlikely they are in the US. Since it's a VOIP number, easy to access from outside the US. Perhaps it's time to pull out the emergency whistle and blast his ears?
I recieved call from this number too, they said, that IRS has case against me and I have to call back immediately. Monday, 1st of December I will call to real IRS !!!
laws enacted to reduce credit card interest press one to talk to a live agent
A male claimed from US government In Washington DC kept called me several times after I declined his offers. It really annoyed me. sun
Said there was a warrant for my arrest and if I need more information I should call .... I hung up and did not listen to where I should call. Sounds like a typical scammer who will then get my phone number on their list and continue calling with other threats.
I think it is like a job positions company but I have a job already. Just want them to stop calling.
Caller is an ESCO, making reference to my Con Edison account.
They said the Gov. wanted to give me $9,000 for being such a good citizen. Yeah right!
Time to stop these calls!
I've asked these people not to call and to remove my name from their list, but to no avail.
Can't request calls to stop, because it's a recording. Have received several calls from this number.
Caller would not identify themselves or company representing.
they call me and tell me I want a grant from the US Department of Treasury the amount was at $8,400 and I wish to to wire them some money $250 this was a scam.please be careful.
The number 202-738-4489 It's location Country: USA Location: District Of Columbia (Washington Claiming to be federal grant department... Telling me that my name was pulled from a survey and I would receive nine thousand dollars and they will put it on a green dot money card. But I would have to put two hundred and fifteen dollars on the card first.
Didn't answer, let go to voice mail. Caller didn't leave a message. I called it back, got message that this number has been disconnected.
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!!!
Recording came to a cell phone offering Medical Alert for seniors.
This caller keeps saying we have received a $7,000.00 Gov Grant to pay med or use to further my education. Gave me a code to use at a Money Grant Store to receive the money . 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.

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

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.
