Type of a scam Government Grant

I was called on my cell phone by a company calling themselves NIH or national institutes of health, even gave me a name and badge number (James Anderson badge #js125896) and said I qualified for a government grant of 14000 dollars. I said yeah right but he didn’t ask any questions that couldn’t be found in a phone book so I kept talking to him. then he wanted the last 4 of my ssn and I said wrong if you want to read it off to me then we will see about verifying it he asked what concerned me and I said asking about my ssn so he put me on hold to talk to a supervisor. the supervisor got on and I told him I wanted to check and see if they were legit with the bbb and he said ok then called my phone so I had his number after I checked them out to call him back, I guess they thought I was bluffing because there is several of their scams that you already know about obviously
