I received a call from this number on my cell phone. A woman by the name of "Karen" with an Indian accent told me she was from the US Government Claims department and told me I had $9,000.00 that would be coming to me. She asked me if I knew why I was getting this money and I told her because she was a fraud. Then I asked her for her name and the agency she worked for again and then I asked for my claim number. Then she hung up. Darn...

Iranian or Indian guy called and said he is with the U.S Federal Grant Department. I told him there was no such department and then he proceeded to argue with me like a 2 year old regarding the validity of his call. He kept trying to reassure me that I had won a federal grant and I kept assuring him that he was full of shit. He wanted me to give him my bank account number so that he could "deposit" my grant money and I told him he could just mail it to me. He became so frustrated with me and I told him I would call him back after I contacted the FBI....needless to say, he hung up/
Please, if you've gotten a call from this number, or from any number from anyone impersonating a federal officer or agent trying to get personal information or money, please call the FTC's fraud line at 877-FTC-HELP (877.382.4357), or complete a short report at https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/#crnt&panel1-1 (under identity fraud). These are serious federal and state crimes. If we don't report these calls, chances are they won't get caught!
I didn't bother answering
They offer government money and call me 6 times
