Type of a scam Government Grant

They call you and tell you that you have been chosen by the government as part of the ARRA to receive $9000 payable to you. They go to great lenghts to explain that this does not have to be paid back. Then they ask you how you would like to receive the money as they suggest Western Union. They tell you that you have to go to a drugstore and purchase a prepaid credit card to load the money onto when you get to Western Union. Now, comes the scam part (as if the rest isn’t bad enough) you have to put $200 on the card and then give them the card number so they can pass this information on to Western Union. The US government doesn’t send money by Western Union. Sometimes they call from a DC number and sometimes its NY .

They call on phone # (000)000-0000. They tell you you will receive 9,500 for whatever you want but you have to give them your account numbers or credit card numbers or you must buy an ITunes card. To get the money. Will not cooperate and hang up several times when questioned why they won’t send a check like any other government agency.
