Received a call today saying he was from the government (he had a definite Indian accent) and that I was going to receive $5000 for paying my taxes. I just needed to go to CVS Monday after 11:00 and call him with the confirmation code to receive my money. Of course, I won't go, but I played along.
Received call on Saturday morning. I yelled at him to get off my phone and then I hung up on him. He called me back!! ASKED me WHY I hung up on him. Told him it was harassment and hung up on him again. I am on the "do not call list"
this person is a pain tell me go pick up the money in cvs or walgreen
Got a call this morning - person claimed to be w/the u.s. govt and giving a grant to people who had paid their taxes... did I want the grant - I told him no - he then said "why not dear"... yea he really did!! I said because I know its a scam, I am on the do not call list, and that the number is being blocked.

I received the same call. Man with a heavy accent told me he was from the US Government and that I and my family member have been given $5600.00 that I will never have to pay back in my lifetime. When I told him I didn't understand he said the same thing again. I said that I don't believe it and he said that my number had been chosen to receive $5600.00 that I wound never have to pay back. I asked him if he even knew my name and his response was "Do you want the money or not?" I said Not and hung up.
DONT ANSWER A CALL FROM THIS NUMBER,THEY TRY TO STEAL YOUR MONEY.
Received the same call from 708-406-5647 around 10:00 on 1-30-2014. Caller offered $5,600.00 from the U.S. Government because I paid my taxes and bills on time. In order to collect I would need to go to the local Walgreen and purchase a Green Dot Card. Caller had an Jamaican accent.
Obnoxious & repetitive - 3 x after another - 8 times in one day

Received the same call from 708-406-5647 around 10:45 this morning. Caller offered the same $5,600.00 from the U.S. Government because I paid my taxes and bills on time. In order to collect I would need to go to the local Walgreens and purchase a Green Dot Card. Caller had an Indian accent. Note: This caller was persistent and called me back 6 times.

This is not actually a response to anyone. I am just placing it here because this post has been reported as a number for the Grant scam:
As per the Federal Grants website at http://www.grants.gov
YOU WILL NOT BE CONTACTED BY THE GOVERNMENT TO OFFER YOU A GRANT.
The government does not contact people to offer them money. If you do qualify for a government grant, the government does not request payment for it.
THERE ARE NO FEES ASSOCIATED WITH APPLYING FOR A GOVERNMENT GRANT.
Providing financial information to prove that you qualify for a government grant is typical, but you should never pay money to apply for a grant. People who run scams often claim to provide help and sometimes claim to be "federal government" officials, don't be fooled by these scams that request money from you.
ALL GOVERNMENT GRANTS INVOLVE AN APPLICATION PROCESS
If you have not submitted an application for a government grant and someone claims you have been awarded one, it's a scam. Grant money is not given over the phone for a fee. In order to qualify for a grant you must apply for the specific opportunity that you are qualified to apply for.
GOVERNMENT GRANTS ARE AWARDED FOR EXPLICIT OPPORTUNITIES
Government Grants are typically awarded to states, cities, educational institutions, nonprofits and other organizations to fund research and other projects.
GOVERNMENT GRANT APPLICATIONS AND INFORMATION IS FREE
Be cautious of offers that ask for your personal information (especially financial) when requesting a fee to access grant information. You can always access free information about government grants and other benefits at Grants.gov and Govbenefits.gov
If you get this call, please report it to:
someone call me to tell government gave 5.600, go to walmart and call them back
