I have received several calls from a Washington D.C area code.  The operator never announces his/her name but claim to be calling from the Federal Government Grants Division claiming to be part of the Federal Government.  

The reason for the call from the Federal Government Grants Division is that the person (I) has been selected by the Federal Government Grant program for $8,000 free money is because the person has a clean background, meaning (1) Has never been arrested (2) Never filed a bankruptcy (3) And is current on all credit card bills.

Based on this criteria the Federal Government Grants Division is going to wire $8,000 via Western Union to the person.  Or if the person can give them their banking information and the $8,000 will be wired to them.  

Yes, there is a BUT; and that is, the selected person must go to a Western Union location and call the phone number provided by the Federal Government Grants Division to call a security officer where he/she will provide an address for the money to be wired in the amount of $500 only a one time fee for this service.  Or the Federal Grants Division will take out a payment of $500 from your bank account as a one time fee for providing the service.  Once the payment has been received by the security officer the $8,000 will be either wired via Western Union or to your bank account depending on the option selected.

I am sure this is a fraud because when the operator is scrutinized and/or asked about the which branch of Federal Government or for a phone no. the operator always hangs up the phone.  I am not sure how to report this to the Federal Government or to the responsible entity but these people are committing a financial  fraud by robbing people of their hard earned money.

I will keep updating this report with new information when I get a call next time from Federal Grants Division.

WWW.MYGOVERMENTGRANTS.COM - U.S GRANTS DEPARTMENT, CLAIM TO BE A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ENTITY GIVING FREE MONEY

AUTHOR: Appendectomy - ()

I received a call from an unavailable phone phone claiming to be calling from the U.S Grants Department.  The persons name was John Hovie who claimed to be an employee of the U.S Federal Government.  John and his federal govt. grants dept want to give me $8000 for being a great citizen.  He wants my credit crd no. so he can put $8000 on my credit card.  The man never gave me the federal govermnet address, nor a phone no. just websites:  WWW.MYGOVERNMENTGRANT.COM AND WWW.MYGOVERNMENTGRANTS.COM.

Upon visiting these sites there is no information on them but just links that take you to other sites.  The best part is that these people have the information of where I live, my ohone no. my wife and kids, and their names.  So how safe are we when John says that the Federal Goverment is using the internet to make the calls and this is why the phone no. is showing up as unavailable, but I have all your information and your should just give me your credit card no. and John will add magically add $8000 to the credit card.

Please be careful from scum like this.  The man did not speak good english and sounded like an African.  The credit card is not designed by the financial institutions that someone can add money to them.  How to stop these people should be the priority.
