I constantly get emails from requestagrant@cashgrantinstitute.com and I tried to reply and the email bounced back to me. They offer this number as a customer service number but no one answers???? Thay are asking for a fee for a CD-Rom that offers instruction on how to write and secure grants but I have not been able to contact anyone directly. I am thinking this is a scam. They get people's money and run and there is no grant money that they have any access to. There has to be a .org or .gov to be legit. Has anyone rported them. They collect the fee and then continuye to bill the credit card. I am a senior and I really need several grants right now so I can get set up to help other seniors living in desperation with no money and barely paying rent, food & utilities. A no frills existence and not the Golden Years that are supposed to be there. Lou

The call came from....202-683-1404, it was a womans voice, and the caller i.d. stated that it came from Wash D.C.
People have it hard already: I'm trying to start a business, and this just came to me as "to good to be true"!
I truley hope everyone don't fall for this.

Got a message from Lucas Dillion with the "Grant Writers" stating that I have qualifed for a Grant. He said" We have taken the liberty of running your information through the system. This is official. I will keep your file open until tomorrow if I do not hear from you I will have to give your grant to the next person and you can apply next summer. Thank You" He called back and I answered he started giving me information then in the middle of the conversation the call disconnected and I haven't heard from him since. When I tried calling back I got and "answering service" They said " Thank you for calling the U.S. Housing Authority who would you ike t speak to" After you ask for someone they tell you they are unavailable and ask if you would like to leave a message, and the person never calls back.

I got this call today on my cell phone. I answered after hesistation but I have been applying for goverment jobs so I thought it was a call about a position. Then I get the whole message about the goverment grants. The thing is I don't know how they got my cell phone number. I have it listed on the "Do Not Call List" and I give it to no one unless absolutely necessary. The suspicious thing is the website requests too much personal information and no information as to what it is actually going to be used for. Beware. These people prey on those who are financially distressed and count on your desperation to catch you off guard in their scam.

Apparently there was not enough chlorine in the gene pool to take care of the @#$%^&**&^%$#@$%^& who send out pre recoded messages from this number. If you are on the "Do not call" list, respond at www.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx. My habit is to send five complaints for every call. SOMEBODY will notice!

Martha - most people aren't quite so stupid!!! If you have so much money, give it to the federal government and help the bailout program!

This message is from the cash grant institute in washington, d.c. Our phone number is 202-683-1404.This is not a sales call.We are calling to let you know about free grant money available from the federal, states and local governments. In addition, we are calling to let you know that you qualify for money from public and private foundations and non-profit organizations as well as money from wealthy individuals who give away money to people like you to help you over come your financial problems. Over 50,000,000.00 is waiting to be given away right now, you may be eligable to receive up to 25,000.00 in government, non-profit, or private foundation money that you would never have to repay. The quickest way to get access to some of the grant money is to go to requestagrant.com (then they spell it out). In order to qualify you will need to have a valid e-mail address and a telephone number. Start the process right now. Go to requestagrant.com, for additional information call our capital hill office at 202-683-1404. This is word for word the message that I received 10-20-08 at 12:21 p.m. I think everyone should approach this with caution, they give you this web site. But when I look it up, this is the site that we get instead of government grant money.

Sounds like the latest sophisticated scam. My robo-message went like "This message is from cash grant institute in Wa, DC 202-683-1404, this is not a sales call. You qualify for free grant money from fed, state and local governments. You qualify for money from public & private foundations and non-profit organizations in addition to wealthy individuals who give away money to people like you to help you overcome your financial problems. Over $50,000,000 ready to give away right now. Up to $25,000 from these public, private or non-profit money is available now. You will never have to repay. Quickest way to apply is to go to requestagrant-dot-com with a valid email & phone number or 202-683-1404"
