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.
Claims he is calling from the US Government regarding grant money that I will receive as I have been a good tax payer for the past few years. This money can be used in any way I choose. He was to transfer me to another person and that person would get my information so that they could "transfer" the money to my account!!!!!! SCAM! SCAM! No way would the Federal Government be giving away money.
THEY CALL EVERY NIGHT. I CALL THE NUMBER AND GET A RECORDING ONLY. THIS IS HERASSMENT AND I WANT IT STOPPED.
trying to get you to send them money on a green dot card stating you will get it back with your grant money. Do not believe them this is a way to get your hard earned money.
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 $200 security deposit via Western Union or thru a MoneyPak voucher available at Walgreens, CVS, 7-11, etc. Naturally I didn't send them any money. I told "Cynthia" (who had an Indian accent and therefore most likely a Buddist background) that she was totally screwing her Karma by stealing good people's money and that her Karma would pay her back. Then we politely said goodbye to each other and hung up.
I received a call around 1:16 PM CST. The caller stated that I was eligible for a government grant for 7,000 that did not ever had to be paid back . He gave me the choices or options of how I would accept the money and I told him cash. He then mentioned I would have to call back the number in question and give them a code of " NH486" and speak with hs senior officer named Brian Williams. Mr. williams would then direct me on how I am to get my money. I asked Mr. Cooper what is this going to cost me? He said "You will have to speak to my manager". I said look I know this is a joke but I will call. I knew this was a scam so I went to Snopes.com and sure enough there it is! I called the number back but the line has been busy . I will not be calling back .
They called me and said I received 9000$ 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.
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
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.
These annoying recorded calls come in several times a day from different numbers.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
