  • grant scam repeated calling

    $0.00Unresolved

    A person who has an accent speaks English and says they have a grant for me, how would i like to recieve it? They then ask for credit card information for you to recieve grant money, or another caller asked for a debit card number and a third caller asked me to wire money to them to pay the taxes on the money before they would send me the grant. They gave me a phone number to call and a security number to give to set up the transaction. I told them all not to call me. I put all the numbers on auto reject on my phone. They have called me 5 times a day for two weeks. I stopped answering my phone unless i knew the number and I turned the ringer off my phone. After telling one I knew they were scam artists and they should stop calling, the guy said "what are you going to do? There is nothing you can do - the police can't help you." bunch of jerks. The last time they called was july 5th They just keep calling on new numbers. down to two calls a day!

  • Free Grant pay 250 for activation card to get 10,050

    $0.00Unresolved

    I was called and told I was chosen to receive a $9,800 Free Federal Loan from the Western Union. But I had to bring $250 for an activation card. But I would get that money back. At that point, I knew it was a scam! I spoke with Annie first. Then had too call 202-642-4336 and spoke with George. He told me about the $250 fee.Said I would get it back. Instead of getting $9,800, I would get $10,050! I didn't fall for it, as much as I need money!

Hello, I've been dating my girlfriend for 3 years now and she just suddenly stopped showing me love and care after I lost my job, so I hired ******ZEUSHACKERS01 at OUTLOOK dot COM****** to help me hack her facebook messages and cellphone and I caught her cheating on me.She denied it and I showed her proof including all her deleted messages. You can also reach them for hacking services. Tell them I referred you

I received a call yesterday that sounded legit and fishy. I did a couple of the phases before banks flagged activity. I did see what this was and contacted the banks stating that these were fraudulent transactions. I'm taking other actions to try and protect what happened.

they were offering me $9,300 from the government for have good credit and paying my bills on time. Wanted to know how I'd like to receive it. I chose the safest method of western union. They were saying it would cost me $300 in setup fees and taxes. You can send money to anyone without them needing anything but identification. RUN PEOPLE!! FRAUD!!

I was contacted as well by this # regarding a $9,000.00 grant I was eligible for. (202) 738-1017 (Washington D.C.)foreign female and I would have the choice of either direct deposit into a checking or credit card account or have it sent to me via Western Union. Then I was told I needed to purchase an I tunes card and put 250.00 on the card while my reference and control # was verified so the 9000.00 could be released to Western Union. Hahahaha! Had to call her senior account manager @ (315)710-0498 (New York)Simon Curry was his name...Hahahaha! My grant ID # was JY117....They already had my personal information and asked my age additionally.....What a scam! they stated often they were with the U.S. Treasury
