I received a phone call from a individual who identified themselves as a Federal Officer. They then asked me my name and if they could forward a MoneyGram to a local store they then asked me to pay a $250 processing fee. They haven’t called her number back several times to release the funds.

Was contacted by somebody I know on Facebook and told to about this grant for home improvement for $150000 and you just have to get $500 in gift cards. I knew it was a scam. I’m not stupid but things mike this piss me off. Have the complete conversation on my phone. They are still talking to me.

They called and said I have been chosen by the government for a $9,200 grant because I have no criminal record and no bank currency. Then she said we will need to register you so they can send the money from state to state with no extra fees. But I will need $198 for the registration and that money will be reimbursed right away.

I received calls all day from numbers that came up Washington DC. (202) 891-1753, (202) 801-7560, (202) 801-5708 and

2 times from (202) 801-0089.

When I answered the call from the number (202) 891-1753 the female spoke with a deep voice slowly and deliberately. I felt she was trying to hide an accent. She stated because I paid my bills on time and didn’t file a bankruptcy that I was one of 1500 people in Ohio picked to receive a federal grant in the amount of $9200. She asked if I wanted to give my bank account number or go to a Western Union location to receive my money where I would have to provide a photo ID and call 1-844-200-1615 and reference AJ2891.

The call was also very noisy and her voice broke up quite a bit.

At one point I told her this sounds too good to be true. She responded defensively, "its true or I wouldn’t be calling you from the US Federal Grant office".

I received a phone call from Greg Tyler saying that I earned some government grant money due to maintaining proper credit, taxes, social security and whatnot. He told me to call 646-854-7855 and provide a grant verification code: DM127. Another time I got a call from Larry Richard for the same thing. He provided this his ID number: AR54813 at one point during our conversation. He said they could deposit the money in my bank account or I could go to a federal credit union or Walgreens. They said all I had to do was pay a $200 processing fee first. However, before submitting anything I did my research and was informed multiple times that this was a scam.

Today 9/15/2016 I received a call from someone named Max Cooper, telephone # 202-856-5826. He said he was calling from the Government Federal Grant Office and I was selected to received a grant of $9,000. This was a one time offer to assist with any debts. I was questioned about my address and whether I was working. I was asked where I wanted to collect my grant money and I told him, Walmart. I was given a code number BD456 and a call back number 360-928-6324. I was told to call this number as soon as the call was disconnected. Mr. Cooper called again and told me he had given me the wrong call back number and provided me with a new number 202-798-2613, which I was to call once our call was disconnected. I called the number and spoke to a woman named Cindy Williams, x1825. I was told I needed to go to the nearest Rite Aid and purchase an Activation Voucher as Walmart and the other companies do not have an agreement with the government. I asked what will the activation voucher do. I was told to purchase $300 on an iTunes card. The woman inquired how far was Rite Aid from my location. I told her 10 mins. Ms. Williams wanted to stay on the phone while I traveled to Rite Aid and I told her I will call back. I was instructed to call back before I enter the store.
