I received a call from a 000-000-000 sometimes I get calls from friends on Skype like this, so I answered. The lady wanted to give me a free 9.000 grant. Sounded too good to be true. She said I could receive the money in cash or directly into my bank account. The government just randomly selected me, um hum. I said if I want the money in cash what would I do. She said to call her supervisor at 202-657-5500 and give them my confirmation number. What a scam. I'm not calling.

Received a call from an unknown number (00000000), then I was told to call their supervisor at 202-657-5500 with a conf# the first person gave me. He then was telling me to go to an Western Union with $300 and he will instruct how to get that $300 plus another $9000 grant from US Govt.

I told him he was a fake person impersonating as us govt. official. He then started cursing. These are all scams. Please be aware...

I just received this same call, and when they asked how I would like to receive the money I told them Western Union, then he gave me  code and asked for my DL# to help Western Union ID me, as to being the right person  to pick up the money. I told him I didn't give out my info on the to anyone, so he said I could call this number (202-241-9449) and give it to them when I called back. I googled it. nothing but a scam, but of course this goes on all the time and when they caught our government will do nothing but slap their hands and say don't do it again or else

I was literally just on the telephone with this group, and they sounded too good to be true. My fiance and me are in a bad place with money, due to my recent injury, and hearing I'd been awarded grant money for school was great news. I'd only applied for financial aid a little bit ago. Anyway, I googled the phone number and was shocked. I stopped communicating with them, but I feel hurt being taken advantage of when we're really in deep need for help. I hope someone finds these people and the ones behind this scam get caught and punished for their crimes. They talked about paying tax money on the grant (which is when I began questioning things, because grant money isn't taxed), and how they were making the request from the New York Federal Reserve. If you're not well informed, experienced, or if you are desperate (like we are for help) it all sounds very real. Beware, I have yet to encounter anything that is real when it sounds to good. Though I hold out hope, I am starting to think people are basically evil and only act good out of fear of being punished by others over them in positions of power. =(

forgot to mention this phone number is in Washington where the U.S. Federal Grant Department is located which made it hard to tell whether it was real or a scam, but obviously a scam if they wanted me to send them money

I can't understand how this still going on, and the POLICE, (good only to give tickets) don't do s*** about it, it's sad that a powerfull goverment U.S.A. dosen't do nothing about it, but sure let's get involved in any onther bussiness that we shoudn't be in, and that's how the cookie crombles!

Caller said I was to receive $10,000 Gov. Grant.  Just purchase a $green Dot Card for $162.00 to lock in my code.  She also asked why I wanted to receive by Western Union not my checking acct.   I  said I was scammed once and she assured me this was no scam. Said that I completed a survey about 6 months ago and the info came from there,  What survey?

I have had several calls from this number, claiming to be the Federal Grant Office. They want to give me a $10,000 Government Grant. But, only after I purchase a Green Dot Money Pack for $180. Sure sounds like a scam to me. Why Would the Federal Government require the purchase of a Money Pack card to award a grant?
