A James Foster from the US Government called asking for my husband, I said it was his wife, and he proceeded to tell me that we were randomly chosen to receive a $5000 grant because we had never filed for bankruptcy and only 2000 people were chosen for this "Grant", he proceeded to tell me that in order to get the money I would have to pick it up at a Western Union and that I would have to call 206-201-2214 in order to get a 10 digit code so that I can receive my money. He asked me how far was the Western Union and that I should go get it right away. I told him that it was 7:30pm - 3 hours later than California. He asked how soon could I get there and I told him after 2pm tomorrow. At this point I sensed his desperation. I continued talking to him without giving him any of my personal information but he already knew my name, address and phone # and asked me to confirm it which I did. He assured me that I would not have to give any bank info or money but that when I get my $5000 I would get another 10 digit code so that they could take $99 just to confirm that I got my money but it would be giving back within 5 min of confirming my identity. He said I could check the website at Grants.gov but since I didn't apply for the grant my info would not be there. He then gave me the address: US Government Grants Dept. 200 Indepenence Ave SW HHH bldg. Washington, DC 20201 to verify that this was not a scam in writing. I am sure that this is a scam...
