I received several calls from a guy named James Avery. He claimed that he worked for the FBI. He stated that a survey was conducted in my city and that my phone no. was randomly chosen for a $12,500 government grant. He also stated that I would receive $500 in coupons that could be cashed. He stated that I would have to pay $49.99 only after the $12,500 was deposited into my account. He stated that I would be signed up for health insurance costing $299. He stated that after 2mos, if I didn't want it all I had to do was call the customer service number and cancel.

After several calls, and the story changing several times, I decided to close my checking account and explain to the bank why I wanted to open another account. Another guy called from the same company. When I stated that I was going to call the Better business bureau, his exact words were, "I hope you do and stop being such a b***h." Then he hung up the phone.

A few days later I received a letter stating that I would be billed within 7 days for the $299. It was signed by someone with the first name Crystal. It had a phone number and a website to contact them to cancel. Needless to say, the phone number was a fluke and the website led me here. I hope whoever these people are get caught and pay for what they have done to innocent people. Also I did find out that one of the numbers that they called from was a Rogers AT&T Wireless phone. When I contacted Rogers At&t wireless they stated that they couldn't tell me who the phone was registered to.
