Got a voicemail about a free government grant that has been awarded to me! To get the money I need to call 206-736-6950. I have never applied for a grant! This is some sort for a scam. The accent is not clean, too!

Jane about Government Grant

Call received from 408-692-5819 stating I have been selected randomly (sic) by the US Govt Grants Department for a $9000 loan which I never have to pay back! The caller went on to ask how I wished to receive it! As if it's so easy to get 9000 bucks sitting at home! Who wouldn't want 9000?! But this is a scam! SCAM! Take care!!

Melissa about 6145598564

She said her name was Woodall Diane and wanted my full name to see if I was on data base list for being a winner for federal government grant.I asked several times to give a site information or something so I see for myself if any of this was true or not and they went on about getting to fill out information on the text they were requesting. Examples were mothers maiden name, annual income etc. They sent me a pic of some woman. I tried calling the number and it just rang until some kind of voicemail came on stating that the text subscriber you are requesting is not available to leave name and number
