received a call 2/22/09 2:56 p.m. saying i qualify for grants,private/public/non profit "wealthy individuals,foundations up to 25,000 dollars. never applied to them. I was trying to get a grant to go to a medical coding & billing college, so i figure they must have gotten my info somehow. However, I thought when I applied it was strictly for gov't or state aid. NOw I don't know who has my information. Something tells me I will be getting calls from anyone and everyone. Do the colleges give out this info? Can they track info from an application for financial aid?

Just got a call from this number. It was a recording. I am positive it is a scam. I work at a bank and there are a lot of scams going on in this world. Don't know where they got my number from, its a cell phone number. More than likely it is from someone who is scamming who may work or have a friend who works at businesses who steals numbers and sells them.

Received message on 2-1-09. Have no idea who it was: 'WSHNGTNZN1 DC' appeared on my caller ID. Message sounded like, "Hello, this is Sharon, give me a call." Who cares?!
They called only once; when I answered the phone, there was no one on the other end - just dead air. Very strange...
It came up as an unknown caller on my caller id. They left a prerecorded message about receiving free government grant money...sounds like a scam. They called me on 1/23, and twice in a row on 1/30.
