This whole thing started when I was receiving this call on my cell phone from an unknown caller at 0000121233, so today I finally answered it. Some Asian guy with a thick accent was trying to tell me that I qualified for free grant money in the amount of $7,500 that was not to be paid back because I filled out a census report with the government in December and that the government was giving that money to me and all he needed was my bank routing number to have the money deposited in my account. Of course I said no and then he went on to give me this claim number which was TA104 and I was to hang up and call this number 202-738-4391 and give the claim number to the person who answer's and then they will give instruction on how to get the money from a western union preferably through Walmart. So I called it and an Asian woman just answered saying hello and when pressed she said this was the grant department, I said this is a scam and she hung up on me. I called back and informed her that I was reporting this to my attorney general in Arizona and she started screaming at me so I hung up. The guy has alot of your personal info already when he calls you.
I just got the same call from a Asian speaking female I could barley understand I refused.
I received about 5 calls from a number that comes up on my caller ID as 0000121233 and also a number 202-241-7703 never left a message so I finally answered the 000121233 and it was an asian man telling me I was receiving $7,500 in grant money never to be paid back and could he get a bank routing number for direct deposit? I said no he said to call this number 202-738-4391 and get instruction on how to get it from any western union preferably walmart. I called the number and some Asian woman just said hello. It was very fishy so I said is this some scam and she hung up so called back and proceeded to let her know I was calling the Arizona attorney general on MOnday to report this and she started screaming at me so I hung up. These people already have too much info on you when they call. This needs to be investigated.
They called me a lady name sidney/stacie ross and said that I was chosen to revied 7500 grant money and to go to walmart n put 290 on green dot card and call her and ill receive my money plus my 290 "deposit" bk. I just never did it n glad I Google the # because I see everyone saying its a scam....thanks
ya some lady called me had all my personal info which was weird and on a blocked number and asked for bank account number to deposit the money into which i thought was a bit strange, so I told her no and then she said I could call this number back talk to a grece and give him my release number for $7,400 grant that I dont have to pay back. This all sounded to good to be true so i googled the number she gave me and its the same one you guys got, so i'm glad i didnt call it back or give her my bank account number, figures someone would try to f*ck you. sorry about you guys but some things are too god to be true
