US Government- IMPOSTER

Type of a scam Government Grant

"Justin" supposedly calling from the US Govt Federal Grants department said that I’ve been selected to receive a $*** grant that is completely free and non-refundable. He stated that I would never have to pay this grant back and that I’m eligible for this grant because I have no bankruptcy or criminal record. He gave me a phone number to call his supervisor to confirm my grant ID# and MTC (money tracking control) number. When I called the number I was given and I spoke with a lady who said all I have to do is go to Walmart or CVS to purchase a $*** card and she would stay on the line with me to ensure I received my grant fund within 15 minutes.
