Type of a scam Government Grant

Yesterday received a phone call saying I qualified for a $9000.00 USGov. Grant. I was given the phone number 646-902-5053 and an access code to give that number. I did not call. Today I received a call from the same person as yesterday @ 646-517-4605 and told to call right now. I did call and spoke with Nisha who told me to go to the nearest Western Union and register with a security deposit of $250.00. Once verified that I paid they would send me a text with code to receive my $9000 plus $250.00. I felt this was a scam and reported it.

They called and said that I was picked for a US Grant for $3900 because I had no bankruptcy I paid my bills and I had no criminal record and I do not need to repay the money. They told me to call 315–332 -1364. And use ID code GG7017. I did not call them back I just wanted to report it. I live in Carroll County Maryland.

I received a call from 202-780-6019 and a message was left stating that they were giving money away. They said that they had $15,000 in grant money to give away and that I was due $9,200. I just needed to call them back at 202-780-6019. I did not call them. I called the BBB instead.
