Same call today about the $9000 Gov't Grant I hung up immediately. Now I wish I had a little fun with them first!
Just got call from dude with Indian accent. He said we received 9 g's and he was from the New York federal reserve. Off course I pulled his chain a little and tried to waste his time for being a douche bag.
Same call...the guy spoke broken English and I could barely understand him. My first thought was "Why would the government be paying these idoits to give me more money that the government doesn't have?" They really should think about their timing for these calls since the governement isn't even open for business right now, Oct. 9, 2013. I also asked that if I was randomly selected but they knew I had no criminal history, how is that random? AND...My phone isn't under my own name...I have a family plan with my folks...good luck geting your $9000, dad, I think I might have been too inquisitive and screwed up your chances! :-)
I did the same told them I had no credit card no family member told me to go buy a green dot card he'll call me back tomorrow

Just called me, spoke terrible english, all I heard was something about a federal grant for $9000 that I'd never have to pay back and I was pre-selected. When she said "I bet you are wondering why you were......" the phone cut out. I didn't do it. Not sure what happened. But this is definitely a scam. How is this stuff legal? Why aren't these people thrown under a jail somewhere?
Same story here. Filed a complaint with the FTC.

Called with the same Federal Grant of $9000 scheme. Knew it was a fake to begin with and asked if I was already selected, what was my name and where could I come visit since headed there to DC for a Department of Defense briefing and I thought they broke their neck hanging up so fast.
She could barely speak English called me on 5/30/13 said i had won a $9000 govt grant. They told me I could use it for anything. When I said I'd use it to throw a party with alcohol and strippers, she hung up on me! The nerve....Government
