Pat said: Received a call today at approximately 12:50 p.m. EST from a lady that had a heavy asian accent telling me she was from the U.S. Treasury Department in Washington D.C. and I am one of 1500 people selected to receive a Federal Grant in the amount of $9,000. She said it wasn't a loan, I didn't have to pay taxes on it and I could use it for education, bills, buy a new car, medical bills or whatever I wanted and it did not have to be paid back. I listened because she didn't ask for any of my information. She knew my name and address. She gave me an Acceptance Approval Number of MG105 and told me I had to call another number and give them that code to claim my grant. The other number is 202-684-6555. Sooo I called that number and it says it's an invalid number. Sooo I tried to call her back at the 543-210-9876 and it told me I had a zero balance and I had to replenish my account by dialing another code. I knew all along it was a scam, but I wanted to see how far I could get with it before they asked me for personal information.

Rayell said: Didn't answer, but they left a voice mail. It just sounded like someone butt dialed me. I could hear a man's voice and a female voice talking back and forth, but couldn't understand what they were saying. It was muffled like the phone was in a purse or pocket. So weird.

Resident said: Foreign (barely intelligible) asian accent said he worked for treasury dept. He had "special one-time offer"-that's the last thing I heard before I ended the call. I hate these thieves, why don't they try robbing someone closer to home? Maybe I'll just assume that all the poor foreigners I meet have worked at a similar job. I can hardly wait for the first opportunity to dispatch them with extreme prejudice.
