One of many scam numbers do not pick up call!
Called saying I had a $9000 government grant that I never had to repay. Have asked them to not call here again & they always hang up then. Have had numerous calls from the same people. The have heavy foreign accents & say they are calling from Washington DC.
No name on the caller ID. I do not know this person. They called 2/25/2014
A few days ago I got a call from this phone number saying the same thing you guys are saying he said.(and I hung up).well today this guy call's again and said that he is my ex-boyfriend I told him that he is mistaken I would never go out with a hin-do!!!!then he said he wants to f-me again well now after that I handed the phone to my husband and he said to my husband he wants to f-your wife and kick my husband a$$ well now he hangs up and calls the cops. They told us to keep a record of all calls and what is said and if it keeps happening to call them back.
I hope you you low life SOB's get caught and I hope they send your sorry a***s back under whatever rock you drug your spineless self out from under. You are so unbelievably stupid!!!! We hear your wife ,and or sister and twenty three kids in the background! I'd like to kick your A** !!!!!!!!!!!!

Caller ID said Fiola Mare The. There is a restaurant by that name in Georgetown.
Just got the call that I have "won" a government grant of $9,000, which I don't have to repay, cannot use for drugs or gambling, but I have good credit thus have "won" this money. All I had to give them was my bank acct. info and/or a credit card #. I did the logical thing and hung up. This is the 3rd time I have gotten this call. And I am on Do Not Call list. How does the US Government tolerate these idiots?
I have received several calls a week from this number. This time I asked them to please take me off their list. A woman with a thick accent said "who am I?". I just repeated that I wanted my number removed and she called me a fu--ing bitch. I told her she was a weirdo and hung up.

These people have called and offered me "free" government grants up to 60000$. They claim they are from the US Fed government and want to give me this "grant". Ive told them no and they have still called over 40 times.
I'm extremely happy I added "Call Control " to my phone to filter these assholes !! I thought about calling the number back & saying everything that they are saying, back to them!! Like they just won $9k government grant ect. LOL. How annoying !!
No one on the phone. Called # back and it says its disconnected.
When I told the representative to put me on Do Not Call List he said "FU*K YOU"
This number keeps calling but I do not know who it is, so I do not answer it.
I got this call today, and actually had to read through some of the comments below to realize exactly what he was saying. But yeah, he said that I was selected to receive 9,000 dollars and then something about that I don't drink or some nonsense (along the lines of what @Erin was saying). I asked him to repeat himself several times because I couldn't understand what he was saying with the background noise. When he got to the confirming your information part, I said that I didn't understand how I got on this list, and asked if it was something that I signed up for. Then he said something that I also didn't understand and hung up.
any unknown call don't answer.
id. I'm afraid I'll let my kid down and thaatae done enough in 40 years here. if I diw b4 I wake son ivlovecu nothing ur fault. you were best thing I ever did.
maybe used as pawn never know
SCAM ALERT!!! FREE USA GRANT MONEY!!! SCAM ALERT!!! Don't waste your time with this one very difficult to understand caller!!!!
Received a call from 202-506-1967
, a number that you cannot call back to. Spoke with someone with a strong dialect from the India region that said the US Gov't Grant Department was giving away money to 1,700 people with good credit, no bankruptcies, no criminal records. I was chosen to receive $9,000 of this tax free money. I could receive the money via direct deposit, credit card or cash - asked me how I preferred to receive the money. The money was to be put to good use and could not be used for things such as g***ling, etc.
This individual provided me with my name, half the name of the place in which I live. I was suspicious because he could not pronounce the name of the 10th largest city in the USA. The individual then says you're 40 something, right? I also noticed a lot of chatter in the background - sounded like a legitimate place of business because of all the chatter.
As the call comes to an end, this individual gives me 202-697-9564 number to call back to.
Caller with a thick foreign accent said he is Ming Bravabala, works for US Govt and I am eligible for a grant of $9000.00
called me and then says the number you have reached has been disconnected
Spanish accent. Threatened us. Told me that I "Stole" his Aunts phone number
Free Grant Money SCAM!!! Foreign hard to understand. Claimed I could get 9K in Grant Money from US Government by listening to him. I wish it was true, I could use it!!!.. I hang up and they called several more times. Guess they like voice mail!!!

Foreigner called, said he was from the United states government. This is not the first time he called.I told him to stop calling me. He proceded to call me a MF. I then hung up. We are on the cell no call list how can we stop these calls??
Has called at least twice but hasn't left a message.
What part of Do-NOT-Call is so hard to understand? Oh wait, apparently the "NOT" part. At least leave a message if you're already breaking the law, right?
They identified themselves as federal agency called me fxxxing asshole after I advised I was turning them into attorney general
They called saying i had won some type of government grant money and wanted me to give them a bank account number to transfer it.
who ever this is shouldnt be calling me asking me to return 1000 dollars and hung up on me not even know who these people are i dont appericated asking for my daughter
I received multiple calls from this number. Sometimes it shows as Gloria Day and sometimes as CAP 8 DOORS. The people have heavy foreign accents and will not stop calling. I have put on a do not call list but this number keeps calling. This is a scam.
I asked this woman who she was because this number will not cease calling me and the woman did not respond to my question. Instead she claims the US government had "selected" my name to be given $9000 in "free " grant money. She is obviously foreign. This is why America needs to focus on educating and spending money on our own! What happens when we accept every damn immigrant and go overseas to "help" others? We get people who become citizens that don't care that they are pulling one over on us! This is not the first time I've been targeted with a similar fraudulent claim from some foreigner and I have many friends who didn't do their research first and got swindled out of their money. You cannot trace these people and they probably won't be caught and brought to justice. If you try to call them, the recording says "unavailable" so what, we can't stop them from calling our phones now? I hope they rot in hell!
After I answered with my business greeting (on my business phone)there was no response and they hung up.
I wish she stop calling me I don't know her!
Three calls from this number. Called back, got recording about reaching a non-working number.
I keep getting calls from this number, when I do answer it hangs up right away, I called it back the other day and got the Hyatt Hotel? "I keep getting calls from this number" and then I got transferred to an automated message about how it's a scam and I need to call the FCC. Which I did, and put in for the Do Not Call list. Got another call at 12 today! Whatever this is is a Scam, not that anyone is ever there to tell "stop calling"

Continuously call at all hours of the day!!!
This number calls me everyday so I finally answered. Same story, offering me $9,000.00 I said I didn't want it nd the guy asked what did I want. I said nothing, for him to stop calling. He then asked if I wanted a boyfriend and when I said no he asked if I had a boyfriend... I really hope nobody believes the GOVERNMENT would call out of the blue like this.
I was told that I was awarded $9000. Just to see what the scam was, I asked her what I have to do to collect. She eventually asked me to call another "Account Manager" with a grant number. Definitely a foreign call center with a lot of noise in the back and she did not understand English much at all.

I was told I had been identified by the US Government as a 'good citizen' and therefore, would receive a grant of $9000.00. How silly is this. I hope no one falls for this stuff.
Caller id said Day Gloria and a foreigner on line saying I was approved for a grant. Complete scam, HHS grants division would never call out of the blue like that. If you did apply for a grant they would have a grant id number and the specific grant you applied for. If anyone has any questions on legitimate grants you can visit grants.gov or call 800-333-4636
called my cell phone which i have NOT given out. rejected as bad caller 200 since sept 2011 when i got number. another site reports as treasury or grant scam. and one call back got number not in service.
