Yesterday 1/25/07 I was called early in the morning by someone with unknown caller to my cell phone. IT was a man with a foreign accent with an obviously fake "average joe" name. I already knew it was a telemarketer but it was early and i felt playful so i let him talk for a minute. He proceeded to tell me I had qualified for a $5000 non-refundable grant from the government. At this point I knew this was not only a telemarketer but a scam, so i wanted to see how long it would take for him to ask for my bank or SS info, which he eventually did. He refused to give me a URL, saying I would recieve it after confirmation. HE also told me this place was located in St. George Utah. Now I live in Atlanta, GA but I have been to Utah and I know that no official government agency in their right mind would operate out of Utah. Also at 9:30 am in Atlanta its about 6:30 am in Utah. Eventually I get tired of the joke and tell the dude im not interested and hang up.

This Morning again at about 9:15 am Atlanta Time I recieve another call. Another foreign guy name "Henry" this time. I had already read other peoples reports of these guys on here (which unfortunately weren't all smart enough to NOT GIVE THEM THEIR ACCT.##) so I told "Henry" in a raised voice that I already know his company is a F------- ripoff and to remove my name from his G--D--- list.

At that point he said "okay...you M-----F-----." No real company would ever let an employee say that on a taped phone call. long story short, DON'T GIVE YOUR INFORMATION TO THESE PEOPLE. LET THEM KNOW YOU KNOW THEY ARE FULL OF BS. ITS SO OBVIOUS.

Atlanta, Georgia
