Was called around 3pm on Wednesday, November 17th 2004 from a man with what sounded like an Indian (middle eastern) accent telling me that I was selected to be given a $5000 government grant that I could do what ever I would like with.. "Education, home repair.. anything you like"

He told me his name was Jason Hanks and he was working for the government grant association. His ID# was 1755. And there website address was www.grantsloan.com
He asked me some questions like are you over 18, are you going to be claiming bankruptcy, do you have a checking account and you check book to verify it? He told me my address and asked if all of the information was current, I replied yes, but what is the catch? "You are just calling people and giving them $5,000?" I said, "come on whats the scam?" He said, "no scam sir, I work with the government and your name was on the list...

I need $199 for the processing fee and shipping but you do not need to pay for anything right now. The only thing I need is the name of your bank and an account number to check that you are not going to be claiming bankruptcy."

I spent a good 20mins talking to this guy, letting him think that I was going to give him my checking account number and then I told him that "well, you called me at work and i don't have my account number with me, but if you could send me the paper work i will go over it." haha He didnt like that. He got mad saying "you said you had your checkbook with you." "You are not going to be charged right now this is only to confirm that you are not filling for bankruptcy." I said, "well i don't have it on me but I would love to check out the paperwork." There was a rather long pause, then a laugh of disapproval and he hung up.

I would love to find out what is being done to stop this.
