Same story here. Total scam.
I have been receiving a call from 202-559-7639, and today I answered this call, a lady with an Indian accent claimed I qualify for a $9000 govt. loan due to a housing program. I Asked her to mail some kind of information for docs, and she hung up on me.
I received the same EXACT today on my cell phone!! I told her to stop calling me and to take me off the list and she abruptly hung up on me!!! This is not the first time she has called my cell! this has been going on for months. Also, when I pick up my phone the call rings like I'm making the call then she picks up!
I got call today from someone who told me I had received a $9,000 "Good Citizen" grant. It was because I had paid my taxes and bills on time and had not been in jail in the past 6 months.
Oddly enough they called from a real phone number, which I think is a DC area code.
The lady said she was the "verification person" and would put me through to the director as soon as she "verified" my information.
I started asking questions and she hung up on me. She had a heavy foreign accent.
