I sanded the money and it was a scam. So be careful people these people are just trying to get your money.....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
These 2 #'s called us 360-369-4375 & 202-657-5492 making huge promises. My boyfriend got a call from these # promising him all this $ they said he'd have it 3 min after he paid them well before I knew anything about it he had already wired them $255.00, then they asked him for another $450.00 to pay state taxes, and after 3 min he'd have over $7,000.00 ya right. These PEOPLE are thieves they are taking your $ don't send em anything.... here it is Christmas how do you think their kids Christmas is gonna be, pretty damn good with their crooked parents, stupid B*****DS
I got the call and did everything they said now i want my money back because i havnt got my money and nobody called me
they told me i was approved for a grant for $7000.00 but i had to send them $249.00 and they will send me 7249.00 back through western union. I trying to figure out how they have my info. and my background info to call me.... scam this is the second time my household was almost scam out of money
Same scam. $7000 federal grant in exchange for payments.
received a phone call from someone from a government grant for 7000.00 and I had to go to western union and pay 249.00 for security purposes and I would get it back
they called me too. they gave me 3 options to either deposit into my checking or savings or to my debit card which makes no sense or cash through western union . i acted like i was going to western union and would call herb when i get there. i then called the 360-369-4375 number from different phones. i called and asked about the program name and who was i speaking with and she got really rude and hung up on me. i called from another number saying i was from the philadelphia consumer affairs dept. and she told me F*** YOU BI*** and hung up."VERY PROFESSIONAL for a goverment employee. i then called from the phone she was calling me on and she answered and asked where i was . i told her i was at western union but i called her a scamming w***e and i was coming to her with the police she said ughh you f****ng bi*** and hung up. whatever number you call these people from and tell them you know its a scam they block that number.
I received a call from 3603694375- Robert from verifiction, stating that I received a grant from the government andthat I should call back that number...The caller had a strong East Indian accent.
Concerned that this is a scam and to get my identity information, I am reluctant to give out any information.
I just got the same call from a gentleman name "Steve" He gave me a number to contact an "Amy" his Supervisor to approve the transaction to deposit $7000 into Western Union. The number to "Amy" is 360-369-4375 and whenever you dial that number it rings once or twice only for a busy signal to come on in your ear. Thank God my bank infor was not given.
i just got the same phone call and called family to get the 245 $ they said it's probably a scam so i called the lady back at 3603694375 and when i suggested scam she hung up on me.
Government grant scam trying to get $245 for a $7000 grant. Just go to Western Union with picture ID and your deposit and the grant money will be yours. Gave a verification number and to call back at 360-369-4375 to talk to supervisor and further instructions.

THEY CALLED ME FROM UNKNOWN NUMBER ON 10/14/11 AND TOLD ME I WAS APPROVED FOR A 7000.00 GRANT AND WANTED BANK INFORMATION TO DIRECT DEPOSIT IT TODAY IN 45MINUTES, DONT DO THIS IT IS A SCAM
A government grant scam. Offer of a $5-7k grant to be deposited on debit card, bank acct or picked up in person, with just a $250 security deposit which will be returned with the grant money in 15 min via Western Union.
OMG! This ALMOST happened to ME! But when i got to the WESTERN UNION they told me that it was a scam. They gave me a fake name of GINNI REPALS these people need to be put away for life for taking people money telling lies.
I think google will be the helping hand for this kind of scam. 360-369-4375 is the number. There is no free money, so please do not fall into the trap.
Adding terms used in the call, so google can direct people to this page.
got a call today fron unknown number said to call 360-369-4375 for verification and then asked for $249.00 to be wired to then. I called back several times and they hung up on me and then the las time I called I asked for someone who spoke english and they hung up again. Hey if I can't understand them why wouldn't I want to speak to someone who spoke english. This is the US isn't it
the reps name was kathy. heavy indian accent.
i just got off the phone with them. why would they call from an unknown number if is a government funded program? and when they told me to pay $248 at a western union for it, i said i dont have that money and hung up. and then i looked up their call back number...glad i did!! they aint getting a call back for sure! thnx!
I did not fall for the scam and have reported all information to my local sheriff's department.
A lady named Jackie called saying that I qualify for a grant of $7000. She had a strong Indian accent and told me to go to western union to pay a "transfer fee" of $249. When I asked to speak to someone else she hung up. I called back several times and she said "don't make me angry, you don't want to make me angry" but I insisted on speaking to someone else. Then I tried calling a few days later and they ignored my call.
They called me too. I wonder how they got my information. The address they had was where I had went to school. I am glad that I did not actually go to the Western Union. It sounds enticing when you are a poor college-age individual. Watch out college students!
They must have called you right before they called me. IDIOTS!
BEWARE: Caller named Gary from an unknown number states that i was randomly selected to get a government grant of $7000. I had 2 options to get $. 1. cash / 2. transfer into bank. I selected cash just to see what they would say. He gave me phone# to call back 360-369-4375 to speak to Amy, the Senior manager and she will send $ to me. When I called her back, she asked me where was the closest Western Union that I can go to, to pick up $. When I told her, I don't know, because I don't go to western unions and asked if she had a list that I can choose from, she hung up. She figured I was catching on to their scam. Total scam! I've reported them/filing a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission as well @ http://www.grants.gov/contactus/contactus.jsp
These people need to be stopped and captured. I am pretty sure that they will not stop until they are captured.
I finally answered a call (they have been calling me for 3 weeks now) from an unknown number. Spoke with a guy named Gary with an extremely heavy accent telling me I was selected for a one time only $7000 federal assistance distribution from the government. It actually sounded pretty legit, knew my name, address, my phone number and date of birth. After asking my method of collection (cash or direct deposit) I chose cash(suspicious of my "luck"). He gave me a follow up number and a confirmation ID number. I called the number 360-369-4375, questioned the lady about the name for this "program" and told her my father was a superior court judge and would like more information. After some silence she hung up. Thank god i googled the number!
So glad I just looked this number up before calling them back..Ugh I could so use $7000 right..lmao..oh well..glad Im not out any money..and for those who are unless you paid cash, your bank will refund..
