Do not provide these thieves with any personal information when they call you.

We received a phone call this morning 6/29/13 from a Nicky Cutter with the US Government Grants Department.  They claim to be awarding $7,000 to a selected group of a 1000 some people randomly selected to receive grant money awarded by the US Government.  They claim it is dervied from overpayments to the IRS.  Ridiculous of course.  The government would never do this in this way. Nor officiates any grants from these sources.

These are clearly thieves involved in an identity theft scheme to acquire personal information such as Bank Account Numbers, Credit Card Numbers and other specifics so your identity can be stolen along with your personal funds from bank accounts and credit card accounts to name just a few. 

Nicky Cutter has a foreign accent.  We were very calm and did not provide any additional information to them.  They already had our name (partially incorrect), our PO Box address, city, zip code plus an email address we use primarily to catch scam emails.  This and a few other things was the first clue.  We knew that they must have gathered our infomation from some place we ordered from on the net or asked for information since we only provide the specific email address they had to those we want to track and identify as scammer and theives.

They provided an award code and a phone number.  We were asked to call the phone number to arrange for receipt of payment in three forms.  1) sent to a bank account number we provide, 2) to our credit card which we are asked to provide or 3) a Western Union MoneyGram or Money Order which we understand requires credit card and personal identity information in advance. 

In each instance, these thieves are fishing for personal information to accomplish identity theft as well as card and bank account numbers to sell and use to drain your account of money.

Again, do not provide these thieves with any personal information.  Let them talk and get as much information from them as possible.  Do not call the phone number they ask you to call.  They can track your telephone number and try to get additional personal information. 

File a Report. Contact the FBI, Local Police or any other agencies that are appropriate.

Hopefully an official agency will shut these thieves down.

Thank you for listening.

I recently recieved a call from Brittiny and a few others that had either an indian or middle eastern accent. They said that thier goverment was giving moeny away becasue of a recent survey. It was through money gram. It was to be activated through a paypal account from the moeny gram store. It was $7000 and I needed to pay the $4.95 for the card, and an additional $260 for some reason. I told them that I would not have the $260 ever and they started to talk over me and I told them I would report them. Any goverment distribution would not be done this way. 

Call back number 202 738 1655

Verification number JN134

Brittiny was the name and her extension was 778

another posable number is 202 697 7222

If the US goverment is doing this then why would this be handled in such a way. Seriously. 

There are other reports on this site for this problem. 

I live in Wisconsin and also Michigan . It may be origanating in either state to my knowldge.
