    Jessica Lee Called me and said that i'm very lucky to be selected to received a federal grant money. Wants me to give my debt # or my checking or saving account to transfer the money to the account within an hour and I refused to provide any account information and I asked her to send a Goverment check instead. She said not a problem, it would take about 4-5 days to process but first I must call the account manager Ricky Johnson--Indian Accent at 202-621-0410. I called him so many times and didn't answer. When He finally answered the phone He then told me that I misunderstood the instruction and should call him back tomorrow before 11am.  So I google the US grant Department: The department itself is legite but the telephone numbers..can't be confirmed because the goverment website has only 1-800..So I called the Grant Fraud dept unfortunately they are closed at this time.  I will be calling again tomorrow and report them.

    i got a call from nancy, an indian sounding woman. she tells me i have a government grant for 7,000 and i need to call ricky johnson at 202-684-6822. then she corects herself and tells me his number is actually 202-621-0410. ricky johnson got me to send money to india via western union claiming it is for a charity. then he tells to to call jeniffer martin. she gets me to do the same thing but says it is for the money transfer fee. they keep talking to me and telling me they are trying to send me the money but that there is a technical dificulty and they are trying to figure it out. they are all india sound people. right now i am waiting for the money but it doesnt look like im going to get it.

    Lucky me! The amount I was promised was $12,000 and the only stipulation was that it couldn't be used for gambling or anything illegal. When asked for my banking information I informed the woman that I had to close my account because of fraud. She didn't comment. I asked her to send a certified check to my mailing address which she already had. She informed that that it would take a lot longer and instructed me to call this number. She also gave me a PIN number and the name Richard Pacer. According to www.snopes.com, search for information about government grants came up with one item described a similar scam.

    I recieved a call from a woman with and unknown number. She gave me a big spill about how i was one of 2,000 people selected to recieve a government grant of 7,000 dollars. He gave me a confirmation number for the grant and a number for ricky johnson. they already knew my name, address, and phone number. Asked me to call "Ricky" and my money would be in the mail and in my hand by morning. Then the next morning got a call from Keith Johnson wanting $380 just to ship my check. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE dont give these people the time of day! It is 100% SCAM SCAM SCAM. If either RICKY OR KEITH reads this please tell us why you are trying to scam us out of OUR HARD EARNED MONEY!

    I received the same call, but did not call back or give any personal info. You can find out more information about the caller by going to reverse look up at www.anywho.com and clicking on the intellus tab. It costs like $1 to get the information for the number including name and address.  I didn't lose any money behind the wasted time so I did not purchase the information

    FIRST OF ALL, THIS IS A SCAM. DO NOT CALL THE 202 #. So I got the call from a woman who made no sense. She had lots of trouble making sentences and could not answer a single question. She reassured me not to be scared. But I still did nt give info. She tells me to call Ricky Johnson. Then I google the # and come here to find that this thing is a SCAM. Yet I called "Ricky" just for the lols. First of all, the man claiming to be Ricky Johnson had a huge indian accent and I don't know any indians with the name "Ricky" (so this is another sign that this is fake). So I ask him about the $99 donation and he got angry (not very US Government like at all). PLEASE DON'T waste your time on this garbage.

    I got a 'absent number' call on my cell phone today at 3:15pm. It was a lady with an accent who went on about that I had been chosen by the government to receive a $10,000. dollar grant from the United States Treasury department. The background was very noisy I stopped her and she was shocked as I asked her where she was from as I could hear her accent, she went on with her spiel from her script, so I asked her again - finally she said she was in Washington DC and from Germany originally. So I let her go on she said that it was not allowed to be used for gambling or drugs! I told her I would use it to pay off bills or further education. She went on and on and then said she could expedite it faster if I gave her my checking account info; within 1 hour I would receive funds or a credit card I would receive a credit within 3 hours!!!!! ( i know that this is something to never do so I insisted on a check to be sent to my address the same way w get our tax returns... She gave me a grant number to quote when I called the number 202-684-6822 as soon as possible. I called and spoke to a Indian guy who didn't give me his name but he verified my name and phone number and said he would call me back today before he leaves for the day.

    I just got a call from some Carol from the US Government Finance and Treasury and that they would send me $700.  As I know there is a Department  of Treasury but not Finance and Treasury, they have a problem with credibility.  I kept asking what part of the US govenrment and which program but she could not answer a single question with a valid sounding answer.  They wanted me to call 202-684-6822 and talk with Ricky.  Not going to waste my time on this scam.  The US government would never operate this way -- it is way too bureacratic.  While the magic of google gets me to this website, the magic of the internet and Vongage makes is possible for scammers to do some research and make phone calls/emails from Nigeria and other parts of Africa and even set up a US phone number that can be routed anywhere.

    I got the same call from a lady and saying I get a grant for 7,000 and asked how I would use it and how I would like it, I said by mail and she gave me another # to call and talk to Ricky Johnson the loan officer and I called the # and verified my info with him, he then said he will give me a call back in 2 hours to verify to make sure it was me? Who does that... I am most definitely not going to give him my account Information, this is a huge scam! I would like to hear from someone that really got the money..

    Scam Scam Scam.  My wife was on the phone with "Ricky" for an hour--did not give bank account or any thing harmful.  He insisted he was at 200 Independence Ave- Washington D.C.  That is the Health and Human services building--(Google works wonders, anyone can find this address).  Bottom line, yes, a check was going to be on it's way, just western union $99 to the address. (immediately--tonight, can't do it tomorrow.....)  She told him sorry, she can't make it tonight-- He was still VERY insistant and gave her a location within 20 miles of here for western Union.  This is when they parted, and I came upstairs and said (hopefully that "Ricky" could hear) this is a scam.....  (I had been checking his info and this phone number on my computer).
