Apparently, I'm one of those good citizens. They've called me twice. The first time it was a woman who hung up in me when I asked her what she wanted from me to get this grant.

The second call was from the apparent Indian guy, who refused to give me any information until I provided him with information. Needless to say, the conversation ended shortly afterwards.

Please beware.

Received call last Friday from 202-391-0961 and a man named Eric Carter was attempting to pull the same (easy to see) scam..  After I said "oh please, do you really think people are the stupid."  He started screaming into the phone "I'm going fu*k you" over and over again..  What an idiot..  Would love to personally meet Mr. Eric Carter in a dark alley one night..  We would see who does the Fu*king..  Please someone, do something with these idiots who are scamming gullible people probably out of a lot of money..  After research I have found a couple of numbers for this group and thank you *67 because I can now call them whenever I want and as many times as I want..  Give Eric a call everyone and let him know how you feel about con artists and foreigners taking advantage of the U.S. name..   Just sayin'..

yep just got the same phone call and had me all excited until i read this but the lady told me to call back tomorrow during business hours 11am-8pm eastern. something told me to research this and i found all these stories. they must have made there quota for the day because they told me to call back tomorrow because they couldnt release the funds. I think they seen that i wanted my money western unioned or they seen i didnt have no money to send they but they never asked me for money.

Political Call
Got a call today from a blocked number saying i got a 7,500 grant for being a "good citizen" at first i believed it and i did give them my bank number which was a MISTAKE. This person was a girl with an accent and gave me that 202 436 9770 number to call with a access code. I did so and an indian man picked up claiming to be from the federal grant service. He told me to go to the nearest western union and give them 295 dollars. Luckily I didn't have that much money and told him ill call him back at the same number so i think that number is still accessible. DON'T BE FOOLED

Yesterday I got a call from a guy name Steven Moore and his phone # is 202-621-0402 with some kind of Indian accent and he told me that I am qualified for a goverment grant of $7000 that I never had to pay back. At first I believed him and he asked me if I had a bank account and I told him I don't have a bank account. Then he said we will send the money to your nearest Western Union and I said okay cool. After that he told me when I went to the Western Union I have to pay $230 in order to get the $7000. Then I told him I'll call you tomorrow. Then I told my mom about it and she told me its a scam because if they want you to get the money why did they want you to pay $230 why don't they just take $230 from the $7000 and give you the rest. Then I started to think about it how can a person with a f***ed accent work for the US government. Thanks to my mom I saved my $230. So don't believe this people when they call you just hung up on them. PEACE.

they keep calling me, i told them i was 16 this is irriating, i didn't give them any info, but humored them because i had to make calls at work today and getting hung up on is hurtful, but f- this stuff ><
they didn't leave a number, it was an unknown call, first red flag >< then i looked up the us tresuary department, doesn't exist or w/e and if they did exist, they would have better english skills, i would think that would be one of the few jobs the US didn't outsource.

I fell for the scam I received the call that sens I paid my taxes on time that the Government was rewarding me money with a grant worth $7,000 and all I had to do was donate $129.00. I did what they asked being as though I could use the funds to pay off some bills and catch up on my rent. I wired the money and gave them the tracking # from western union and waited for a phone call from someone in New York Finance Bank and never received the call. And the number is still active and the contact persons name is Michelle Kay. I had to wire the funds to India to a person named Veenia Kumari and what I found out from a co-worker is that back in India the 129.00 I just sent them from america is worth 11,000.00 and the tracking number from the western union I sent is not traceable I tried so I can stop it. So yeah its a scam and I was played like a grand piano.

They called saying i was to get a $10,000 grant just for being a "good citizen" they said it would be a bank wire to wire transfer. All i had to do was confirm from details about my checking account. Before they could question me further i suggested they send me a check. Or better yet, use the federal ID code for my school and send the money directly to them. She hung up on me after that without any more questions!

I got a call from them saying that I was selected for 7,000 in grant money. As I have been going through the financial aid process recently (actually managing my stafford online at the time) because I decided to go back to school and pursue my master's in education through USC....anyways I thought it was plausible at first. But there were red flags all over the place so I asked for his department and employee ID number...he said he worked with the department of finances at 200 Independence Ave. West in Washington D.C. his name was Jay Tyler id# 1052642512. In the end...total bu***hit, he said it had to be wire transfer, and that I could apply online for grants but then I'd have to pay those back...the wire transfers were completely tax free and I didn't have to repay. Glad I took a second to ask myself these questions even though I'd been dealing with grants and loans up the yingyang lately.

Same type of call from "David Smith" at 202 900-5555, offering a $7,000 grant due to having no criminal record, paying bills on time and not filing bankruptcy. Smith was calling to confirm my daughter's information but kept referring to me, her dad, as Ms. Miller.

When he said the US Treasury could not send a check, I really started messing with him. We called at 7:30 PDT and could't tell me what time it was in DC. I asked for his year of birth and he could not calculate his age. He called on Memorial Day but did not know the holiday. He was not aware that US Government was closed today. He would not tell me where he was born. He hung up when I told him it was a scam.
