  • A scam claiming to be the federal government giving away grants


    I received a call from an unknown number and they said they were the federal government giving away $9,000 grants. They verified my phone number and my address and my age and where I live then they gave me another number to call with a special code. When I call that number they were going to give me the $9,000 grant but they wanted to put it on a card that I would buy from the Dollar General Store for $212. They place me on hold and I was supposed to say hi when I had the card with the $212 on it so they could put the $9000 on there. I did not actually buy a card because I figured it was a scam to get $212 off the card.
