I was excited as I could definitely use the money. $7000 grant... grant means free money and I had recently applied for a few so this was not unusual until they told me I needed to call another number to get my funds... huh?? LOL I called the number 202-738-1068 and it just kept ringing and ringing. I called several times and never got a human... So yea... scam.

When I started questioning her then i told her I wasn't intrested to my suprise she started to tell me to burn in hell, bitch and many worse names . I couldn't believe what I was hearing.

who is this i recieved the same confirmation number of bo301. Has anyone went thru with this seemingly scam. I could use the money but the government just dont give money away out the blue. Also in order to obtain the funds you have to pay a one time fee of 320 for verification which is immediatley returned to you at the time of transaction. Making your total 7,320.00 smf. Any info anyone

Like Richard,I too finally decided to answer this number in order to get them to stop calling. However, a man gave his name and stated that I had been chosen to receive a government grant in the amount of $7,000.00 with no obligation to ever pay it back. I said yeah right; He gave a reason for me being chosen in Michigan, and confirmed my address; I thought oh shoot do I own somebody any money? He gave a number to call {202-738-1068} and provide them with a confirmation code of BO-301 and said they would then make arrangements for me to collect my money, in cash.
Lord knows, I could use $7,000 and I wanted to see how far it would go. So, I called from another phone, sounds like the same guy to me. He asked me to stay on the line while he verified my confirmation code, then he hung up! As I thought, another SCAM.

Finally decided to answer this number in order to get them to stop calling. A woman gave her name (I couldn't understand what she said) and stated that I had been chosen to receive a government grant in the amount of $7,000.00 with no obligation to ever pay it back. She gave a reason for my being chosen, but between her mouth full of marbles and a bad connection, I couldn't understand her. She gave a number to call {202-738-1068} and provide them with a confirmation code of MB128 and they would then make arrangements for me to collect my money, in cash.

I was born at night, just not last night. I dropped the subject and started looking for confirmation of it being a scam.

I just received a call from 202-621-7457 that I was picked to receive a grant for $7,000 and needed to call this number 206-866-5749 to get the information. So I did and the lady said that I could get it direct deposit or western union, I said ok sure ill do western union then she continued saying that I would have to pay a FEE really a fee for free money but the fee would be refunded. The fee was $330.00 she asked if I could come up with this fee today and go to a western union store and then call her back and she would give me the details for the wiring. At this point I'm just playing along, so I said ok and how long is it going to take to get my $330 and the grant for 7,000 back she said the next day. Really does she really think i'm stupid. And that I would need to call her from the parking lot of the store I was going to use. I'm thinking maybe I should just play along just not really send the stupid fee and see if she like being played and with. SCAM SCAM us grant money is free and there are no fees associated with grants these people really think we are that stupid.
