They called saying mary parker is the name to use. i was almost excited but why would you have to pay money to get money makes no sense
Received a phone call telling me I qualified for a free nontaxable government grant. I could use the monies how I pleased ,Buy a house ,start a business etc. I am to receive $ 8500.00 and all I have to do is , go to the nearest Western Union and give them $250.00 dollar deposit for a 3 minute transaction and bring ID. and cellphone so they could text the information Western Union needed would. Then I was to call Nancy Romero at the 202-738-1464 number and give this conformation number etc... The money( 250.00 ) would be return along with the $8500.00 free money . I almost fell for this but my sister said why did they call you from an OUT OF AREA PHONE NUMBER TO START? RED FLAGS PEOPLE !!!!!! IF it sounds to good to be true it is ...Momma always said nothing comes free in life .
Wanted me to go to western union and send $250 for a government grant of $8000 to receive just plan bs.
Did this turn out to b a scam?
The stupid are condemned. Get an education and learn to recognize an obvious SCAM.
You won't get your money back, it was stolen by crooks who are smarter than you are.
In I just been scam I gave them $250 in was told to pay another $800 in then I would get the money how can I get my money back????????
Your a f****ng liar and your probably working for them you dick cause they just robbed me for 250 dollars
They scamed me just now out 250.00 dollars.
I sent the western union and was promptly reimbursed the $250 plus I received the full amount $7800! i just had to go to 5 different kroger locations because they have a $2000 wu limit. i thought it was prolly a scam but they have an even better scam to get you the real $$$. i spoke with an addmission specialist the previous day and he told me how to do it all.
Same number, same scam. Foreign accent named Gloria Kelly. Wanted $250, deposit for a govt grant of 7800.00. advised not to mention to western union. Please beware. Thanks everyone for your posts

Recieved the 7800 dollar grant scam. Asked me too send 250 dollars via western union.
just got this call from 202 738 1464.. the chick yelled at me for asking for a call back number, then she yelled at me for not taking advantage of this Once in a life-time chance to get 7800.00 of FREE Gov't money.. I had to laugh..
Got the scame scam. Reported to FTC
same thing all indian voices phone number is a dc number I called and reported this to the depertment.. freakin bs
Same thing happened to me loolz.
I'm international student why the US government gives me grant!
they called me for a grant 7800 dollar but on condition of paying 250 dollars first via western union, they told me that its governmental and i cannot inform the people of western union with it so they would charge me.. the girl called tracy berry, but her accent is asian.. the funniest thing that they told me i won the grant cause i am a good citizen who payed my taxes.. while i am not a US citizen :)
Indian woman name mary parkersaid i have been approved for 7800 dollars but to get i have to put up
250$ at western union.....sounds a lil bit fishy!!!
I got a Call from this # and I dont even know why!
Got the same phone call same number and reported them to the federal trade commission. Gave them the name and number of the person who called, and what they were offering we all should report this to the FTC
i just got the same phone call! i called the number and the man was rude to me, i got rude back and he asked me if i had 250.00. i told him yes i have 250.00! he said "maam, im sorry this is a scam!"
Same thing happened to me telling me I qualified for a grant of 7,800$ as long as I payed $250... same number same accent and I purposely tried calling the number after what would be business hours to find this is a wireless phone. If this was a company or legit business they'd have a proper answering machine of sorts...ignore these morons or if you find a way, report them.
they just called me and an indian accent female said i have to pay $250 before i get to westren union store i had to call them her name is tracy berry and her id #is tg286
