Never identifies what card company is calling.
NO MESSAGE, JUST THE NUMBER.
I got 3 messages in the last week from them. I have no picked up and it leaves a cut off message saying that I need to call back before legal action is taken against me. From looking up the number, it seems to be a scam.
Unknown caller, female, called to verify my name, age, marital status, state and zip code. gave 202-738-1426 for $9K gvt. grant being offered to me from U.S. Treasury for no criminal record, no BK. They have my info from a survey I took about 6mos ago. Gave Grant conf# and told me to call. They asked if I wanted funds trans to bank, visa card, or western union cash. Gvt request funds be used for personal needs, nothing illegal.
Tried to say i win a grant for 4'500. When I called the number I got no answer.Said that it was government. Try to see if you would give out your bank information.
I did not answer because I did not recognize the number or company.
I received a call from a person named Chris Parker at 214-717-5310. He told me to call his manager, Adam Wilson, at 202-738-4542 because the government at IRS had chosen me to receive a tax refund of $7,200.00. I called the number and a man named Nick Richards told me that if I wanted the refund, I had to go to Western Union and show my ID they would process the refund. I asked if he worked for IRS, he said Yes, in the Tax Department. I asked him for his manager's name and then he hung up. This is clearly some sort of scam.
Call shows up on caller ID.
Apparently an automated call.
Another credit card scam. They always say push "2" to be removed from our list, but it never does any good. They just keep calling.
the first time they called, I searched the number-web says it is a scam.
I got a call too today saying that I qualified for $7K grant money because I pay my taxes and all this other bull. Had my name correct but not my address. Said if I go down to the local walmart they will release my funds after I provide my Grant ID Number of JM9003 but right before I go into the Walmart I am to call Alex Gendre at 253-843-6189 because he is the right person to release my funds. What a bunch of crock. And that number for Alex Gender is always busy. I called just to see what this guy was going to say and then I was going to screw with him. Bunch of freaking losers. WTH.
no message on my answering machine, hang up when my ans machine answered no name on caller id only "Anonymous" MAKE THEM STOP !
Tried to sell me a cruise to the Bahamas.
he said I won grant money from the govt or something like that and I had to call this number to win 9000$ but how they find me if im under 18 and Im not even in the system? I don't remember taking any survey lately so this is a complete SCAM
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 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.
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!!!
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.
told me i an entitiled to a goverment grant for 9,200 dollars. I am assuming this is a scam
