He is not a telemarketer, but someone who is ineptly trying to work a scam! Heavy accent said he was from the US government department. I said I'm going to hang up. When I called the number back I also got a call rejected notice.

February 14th, 2014 Salt Lake City

Called and said I won $10,000, but wanted my credit card # or debit card # to get it. As soon as I asked why can't you just send me a check, or a prepaid card of your own supply? They hung up. Hope this person(s) gets what they deserve for tryin' to rip folk off~

February 13th, 2014 Kristina CA

I got called three times from this number 202 697 7222 until it woke me up. I went to call it back and it said "call rejected". Im pissed off because someone doesn't call that many times unless its an emergency. From the other posts Im guessing con artists what can be done to stop them?

February 12th, 2014 dawn kozliski NJ

Harrassing, disturbing phone calls from this number. Person sounds like a wonan with foreign accent claiming to b Alex. Knows all my personal info and says he is my daughters fiance.

February 12th, 2014 BK IA

Called claiming to be apart of the US government to give away free grant money via e-transfer. Sounded foreign claimed to get my info from an online survey.

February 12th, 2014 cs SD

Don't answer if its a number you don't know, let them leave a message. Don't call them back, you get charged for calling them back.

February 8th, 2014 Curt NV

They have called 6 times today, 202 area code probably rerouted, I'm calling Verizon!!

February 8th, 2014 Aggravated

I said "Hello" twice, got someone speaking in a foreign language I couldn't understand. Said, "Please take me off your calling list." to which the caller started yelling, why? I hung up.

Phone Number Report: CLAIMS I QUALIFIED FOR A GRANT AND ALL THAT WAS NEEDED WAS MY BANK INFO TO RECIEVE THE MONEY I DIDN'T APPLY FOR A GRANT

January 28th, 2014 JK NC

No VM left; tried to call the number back and the message stated "Call Rejected". Called 3 times at 9:56 am, 1:47 pm and 4:16 pm, as the user Nells stated, during work hours.

January 21st, 2014 C Daily CA

He said I had been drawn to receive a government grant of $10,000 that would not have to be repaid because I had paid my bills and taxes on time, had no bankruptcies or criminal actions against me. How ridiculous. Told him I'd report him to police.

January 8th, 2014 Illinos IL

A man with a foreign accent said I q m getting a grant ftom the federal government. When I confronted them about this being a scam I was hung up on.

January 7th, 2014 Nells MA

Called 3 times from this number today at working hrs. It is annoying

January 2nd, 2014 patti NY

i just received a call from the same number, the girl aske for my by name, i acknowledged it was me and she hung up. I am now filing a report with my local attorney generals office and then calling verizon wireless and let them know whoever owns this number is harassing me and I will hold verizon wireless responsible if they don't do something about it.

December 11th, 2013 John CA

The call seemed to be about a grant and how it was tax free. My wife answered the phone and did not understand exactly what he was talking about. The phone was on speakerphone so I heard the last words he spoke was F*** You! to my wife and hung up. This fact tells me that he is not working from a call center because all their calls are recorded. It must be some kind of scam or fraudulent call. Call was 12/11/2013 @ *10:40 AM Pacific time.

December 11th, 2013 mary CA

one of your worker told me fuck me because i dont understand what he said you guys stop call me because if not i make you guys go to the court

December 8th, 2013 Kristen TX

I just received a call from a guy that doesn't speak English saying I'm getting a $10,000 grant. I asked how did you get my number? He said f you I already told you that. I said can I speak to your supervisor and he proceeded again to say f you like 3 more times and hung up. I hate soliciting!! That kinda ticked

December 6th, 2013 nancy runnells IA

He wanted my debit, credit card, or bank numbers cuz I had won a $200 Grant, sounded fishy to me!!

December 4th, 2013 Mandi VA

This number has called me over and over today and everytime I answer they hang up. I tried calling back and it says call rejected. I looked the number up and found that it is a scammer so everybody beware!!

December 4th, 2013 Pat Canady VA

This scammer just called me on my cell phone and I wanted to make sure no one gets caught up in his scam. This caller will claim to have a large sum of money only available once through the US Government in the sum of $10,120. He will also say that in order to claim this money you must pay the sum of $99 in order to receive the larger sum. Do not give any banking, SSN or any other personal information. The caller's phone number is 202-697-7222. I have already reported him to the FTC.

December 4th, 2013 Lori VA

This number called me 3 times and left me a voice mail saying "Lori, F*** you!" The last time they called I answered they asked for me and I asked who it was and they hung up.

December 3rd, 2013 Darren CA

The person called me 3 times today (3DEC13). The last time he called he started with the "Grant Money pitch," but I cut him off quickly, as I had looked up this number already. Turns out thousands of people are continually harassed by the person/people at this number. Once I told the guy I had not participated/applied for any grant and that I researched this number, and reported it. He said to me, and I quote, "Go f@@k yourself buddy." He then repeated himself and hung-up. This number has been reported to the Feds.

November 27th, 2013 DCS MD

Confirmed today that this is one of many scam callers preying on young women who may have used the Yazmin birth control pill. The guy on the phone sounded as if he were stoned out of his mind, and called asking for my daughter three times today, even though the second time he called I told him that my daughter had moved out after graduating college four years ago.

Same stoner called later in the day from 786-480-0003.

November 25th, 2013 Uknown TN

Some keeps calling me from this number, when I answer, no one replies. I hang up and call back and then no one answers and the phone rings and rings!! This is very annoying!!

November 21st, 2013 Beth FL

keeps calling over and over. said the same thing gov giving me 10K. then started cursing and using profane language. then kept calling and calling and cursing at me.

Wish there was a way to shut this guy down.

November 8th, 2013 L DE

BEWARE this caller will not accept the words "do not call me again". he persisted in saying he liked me, why would I tell him not to call me again. I have no idea who he is, what he is representing.....But he said my name and number had been awarded a 10K grant form the US govt - heavily accented male...... would not hang up, even after being told I would report him

November 7th, 2013 Chad CA

Received a call from someone claiming they are with the Government Grant dept. This is a scam...

October 28th, 2013 Angie NJ

This number called me it was a woman. Her English was perfect and she said your number keeps popping up my phone so I thought I'd call to see how you are. I said I don't know you what are you talking about and how did you get my number? She hung up and every time I tried to call back it said call rejected

October 28th, 2013 R. P. KY

Just got the call from this woman also. I politely asked her to put me on her do not call list. Her answer, "Why?" I said because I'm telling you to do so. Once again, "Why?" Now by this time, I'm furious! I asked her name not once, twice, but three tines. Each answer is "Why?" Let's just say I ended the conversation with balls if fire in my cheeks and an expletive on my tongue. I am so sick of ignorant, abusive and just plain STUPID people/companies that do this. This has to stop! Let them call the N.S.A. Better yet, let the N.S.A. find where they are and stop them from calling Americans, stating they are calling from Washington D.C. when in fact they are calling from India or Sri Lanka.

October 12th, 2013 Kathy IL

Reject.my number phone block

October 4th, 2013 bev NJ

when you dial this #---"call rejected"

October 3rd, 2013 Jobek TX

My husband would get phone calls from these guy 3-4x a day. So my husband answered the phone one afternoon asking it they would take his number off the list. The guy kept asking why he wanted to be removed from the list so my husband hung up on him. The ASIAN man immediately called right back asking why he was hung up on, then the ASIAN man hung up on my husband. The Asian man calls my husbands phones AGAIN claiming he was a police officer that was going to arrest him at 5 pm and stated our address.
When we try to call phone number back is comes with "call rejected"!

Couldn't understand female voice. Said she was with U.S. Government and something about a phone.

September 13th, 2013 Dan CA

I received a call from a guy who claimed to be from US Government Grants Dept. (202)697-7222 and I was awarded a $10,000 grant because I paid my bills on time and had no bankruptcy in the last 3 years. He spoke in a heavy Indian accent and I couldn't understand the details of what he was saying. I asked for someone who spoke better English and was put on hold for a short time and was again talking to someone with a heavy Indian accent but spoke a little better. I asked for him to send me the money by check since he already had my name and address and he said he could only transfer electronically and would need my bank account number or card number. I told him I would not give out my banking information, he then said to call (202)470-2437 and give my grant approval number(2 letters and 3 digits)to the person and not to share this number with anyone I had an extremely hard time understanding the letters and numbers he was giving me because of his heavy accent and he was getting very frustrated. Needless to say, I did not give this guy any information he didn't already have and have not called back the number he gave me. I have never dealt with any government agency or grant that didn't handle things in writing,through the mail. Obvious scam!

September 11th, 2013 jenico MA

I don't know who this number is but want them to stop calling they call 3-5x a day!!

September 9th, 2013 Smiley NC

The first call I didn't answer and then the next one I received was a girls voice...when I said hello, she said hello, I said hello and she said hello again, and then I said who is this and she said who is this and hung up. Then Saturday I got another call from this number and my daughter-in-law pick up and this time it was a guy and he asked for me by name....she knew about my previous calls and she told him he had the wrong number.

September 4th, 2013 Betsy SC

Tonight I received a call stating that he was from the US Dept of Treasury Grant Department and I will be awarded $10,200. He said 1,500 people have been selected to receive this grant. I immediately said this is a scam. He said no it isn't and tried to justify his validity. He said if I gave him a card or an account to deposit this money in, that I will be awarded this grant in 30-50 minutes. While thinking the entire time that this was a scam, I thought maybe it isn't. He gave the correct address to the Dept of Treasury Grant Department. I have so little money that I was thinking maybe he is telling the truth. His accent was from India. He said call this number and give your confirmation code. I then called 202-470-2431 and no answer. Later, a woman called saying to call at 10:00 in the morning. Unfortunately, I gave him my credit card information. Immediately, I called the fraud dept with my bank and I put a hold on my account and will get a new card tomorrow. Just think of the people whose accounts could be depleted? What a shame that these things happen. Hope no one else is scammed.

August 12th, 2013 Kelley FL

This number, along with an array of other numbers with area codes from literally across the country, has called me 3 times today alone. Most of the calls I received I missed, but the few I did pick up all had extremely crackly reception on the other end. There also seemed to be a drastic delay on the other end because the callers always answered my questions either minimally 10 seconds post question, or seemed completely confused as to how to answer my questions. The three people I spoke to all appeared to sound American- 2 were men, and 1 was a woman with a southern drawl. They all however claimed that I had been chosen by the US Government (no official office or bureau etc. name was given) to receive a $10,000 grant that was immune from tax collection and that I was free to use this money however I chose. I asked the woman with a southern drawl how she received my information and she replied, "Well, you should know, you're the one who has applied for a grant recently." This couldn't be further from the truth. The calls began at 9am this morning and have progressively increased, now twice every hour. The number 202-697-7222 in particular called me 3x today and is the only number of the lot that has repeated. I've received so far a total of 12 calls. CALL AND REPORT THIS RIGHT AWAY TO THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION. They will give you a reference # for your report, and will also provide you with the phone number for the Attorney General of the state you live in. You are instructed to call back both the federal and state hotlines in the event that you receive any further calls. DO NOT simply ignore these calls- you could be a victim of identity theft. When you call the Federal Trade Commission Hotline, they do record every single number that has called you. Good luck everyone!

August 12th, 2013 Dian FL

Don't answer the phone when I get the call because I live in Florida and this call shows up as a cell phone in Washington (where I don't know anyone). So far today they have called 3 times. Each time they leave a message on my answering machine saying "hello?? hello?? hello?" It is obvious that they are calling from a call center because it is a different moron each time and there is lots of background noise.

August 8th, 2013 Kim Saladini WV

A man called our number. He said that his name was Larry and asked for me. When my husband asked what the call was about, the man hung up immediately.

August 6th, 2013 Jeremy OR

Said I qualified for a $10,000 grant then my phone hung up, I have called back three times and it just goes to an answering machine saying the person is unavailable. I have researched the number and it seems like everyone is saying it is fraud, just want to make sure

August 3rd, 2013 Jori IL

This guy called and said I am being awarded $200 from the U.S government to be used anyway I want. All he said is it because of a new grant, and I could barely understand him to get the reason as to why I would be getting this grant money. He then said to get it in 20-30 minutes I can either give him my banking info or I think he said credit card info. I told him this sounds sketchy and why would the U.S government call me on a Saturday. He said I can have his pin number and the name of his manager. Bottom line I told him that it seems odd the U.S government would ask for my bank info and if they really want to give me money, why can't they just write me a check. At this point the guy hung up. He must've realized I knew it was a scam.

August 2nd, 2013 Sharon MO

Rings. I answered, nothing, then a click and someone said my name, I asked who was calling and they hung up. Had a local wireless a couple of days ago for DISH. So now they are using wireless to fool us into answering, great.

July 31st, 2013 Stephanie NY

My 14 daughter answered the call from a man with a thick accent asking for my 16 year old son. Said he was calling from Washington D.C and that he needed $200.00 immediately. Asking for bank numbers, card numbers etc. After realizing he was speaking to a child, the man then asked if she was a young girl. After answering yes he then asked my daughter if she was a virgin. She then got scared and hung up. We have no called authorities and will take any steps neccessary to catch these dirty, nasty, perverted, disgusting scamers!!!!!!!!!!!

July 30th, 2013 Deborah OK

Spent a long time explaining I had been scammed before and could not provide a card or account, that I had verified who I was, now verify who you are or that the program is real. Refused, insisted I go buy a card from wal-mart. Told them I could really use the money but they needed to let me talk to the government people myself and if that was not possible, I would have to refuse the "free grant" from a "demographic survey" by the "government". I Hung up. Am getting really tired of people that do not speak English clearly enough for me to understand them calling asking for money or access to my accounts!Why doesn't my do not call registry work?

called and said I won a 10,000.00 grant, I said send the money in the mail and we will be fine, but she said it will be electronically debited into your bank account, I said are you deaf send it to me by mail, she said you will have it in a half our in your bank account, all grant checks are sent by courier and delivered to your door, most of them, this bitch was stupid if she thought i was going to give her any banking information, it is definitly a scam.!!!!!!!!

Had called twice today, finally I answered. It was a delay so I knew it was a telemarketer . I hurried her up and she asked why I was in a hurry? She had broken English, I told her to not call me back. She said she had to call me everyday and then hung up on me.

They call and leave no message. I can only assume that it is an unsolicited sales call.

Caller claimed that I had won a $10000 government grant, heavy accented English, difficult to understand, when I asked for another person in the company to speak with, he hung up. This is some kind of scam. He claimed to be calling from the US Government.


How do I stop them from calling?

  1. Ask the unwanted caller to stop calling and put you on their do not call list (they are legally required to comply).
  2. If your number is registered with the National Do Not Call Registry you can file a complaint with the FTC.
  3. Block them with a call blocker or something like Nomorobo.
