(222) 222-2245 Phone Call Reports
This is the third call that i have received in the past month. saying that i won 9000 in free grant money. they give me some conformation code and tell me to call their supervisor at (202)738-1655. I am not giving up any personal information over the phone.
They said I cannot use this 9,000 grant money for activities such as gambling, drinking alcohol, etc. I asked, well if its my money why can't i do what i please with it. I asked for them to never call again, and 15 min later my phone rang again,
I just got the same call said I would receive the money western union to day from the Government, just because I was a nice person and filed my taxes and paid my bills on time.
said I won a $9,000 US government grant. told him to quit calling he told me to go to hell. they have called 3 more times today and many times in previous days
I already asked to be put on the Do Not Call List and I keep getting calls from this number.
They called with very disturbing harassment when i told them I wasn't interested in grant money. They said they were going to rape me and put a bullet in my face. I hung up and they called back 5 more times.
Just received phone call from this number claiming they had 7k grant money they wanted to give me, then gave me a confirmation number and a phone number to call. I wated to see what they were going to say so I called and they wanted me to go and buy a Green Dot Card and I said hell no if the govt. wants to give me money they will send me a check he got mad and told me not to call that nuimber again.
These people have called me 15 times today alone. When I said that I am on a do not call list and to remove my number from their records they repeatedly told me to F*** off then hang up and call a few minutes later.
I just got a call from this number and it's before 7 a.m. When I answered it was like mushy. I couldn't understand a thing. It kind of sounded like when you have a pause from ship to shore, when you're not talking.
If some one call from unknown numbers please do not reveal any personal information and bank details. Just disconnect. Take care
Some one called from 222-222-2245, saying that he is calling from US federal government, grants department. He said i won 7000 USD. He spoken in broken english language. He gave me money approval number and asked me to call 202-738-1655 to claim money through money gram. I found it as money scam. Beaware, Best wishes, VK

can't call back and won't put me on do not call list.
this is the number i that called me requesting money and personal info his accent sounds like he is a korean possibly cambodian
My house is being bombarded with these types of calls for at least a month now. Today's was from 222 222-2245. After being awoken by an early morning call from a wonderful peaceful nights sleep, thankful my bowels were not full or they'd have emptied, and saying "hello and a gracious good morning to you too", this very loud heavy accented young girl yells out my name.... An obnoxious arrogant loud yelling, one decimal short of screaming young lady having extensive trouble with the English language. If I had been lucky enough to have been in bed with someone in the caliber of Morgan Fairchild, this call would have definitely put me out of the mood. Yes, what do you want having woken me up on this fine Sunny EARLY MORNING? Her reply, "I have free government money, $7,000 which you don't have to pay back.....IT'S FREE, nothing else, just FREE MONEY! I said "I DON'T WANT IT, THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS FREE MONEY"!, and if there is, send it to Somalia for the pirates to buy gas for their pirate ships and continue on with their thieving ways! But Sir, you don't understand...it's free government money for people like you, free, no pay back, just spend! Again I say, then give it to the Somalians, they need it to continue on with their high sea priracies!
Told me I won 7,000 sounds nice but to good to be true. He gave me a confirmation # and a phone # also told me that it could be through western union today. How are you going to try to represent for the government and u sound like a damn terrorist lmao. Some people need to get a life. THIS IS A SCAM. I encourage anyone who has had this call to report these individuals to http://www.grants.gov/web/grants/support/general-support.html They have a section for anyone who is impersonating their department. Grant fraud.
I have decided not to take any surveys any more. Every time I do this like this come up. They told me that I got the $7000 grant for paying taxes and not filing bankruptcy. That was a BIG RED FLAG. I have been paying taxes but I am one that had to file bankruptcy about 4 years ago. It is so funny how these groups get your info and try to run scams.
called and told me that i have been accepted for 7000 dollars and to call this other number and gave me a code to give them.and the other one had my full name and home address and told me that if i send them 290 dollars i would recieve 7290 back and said to give them a call back when i got the money sent.i never sent them money and i didnt call them back now i am getting phone calls from a withheld.
Pretty much same as above. Lady called (broken English) said I would receive 7K. I asked, why? She said, "for paying your taxes on time and not filing bankruptcy." She also said I would receive the money via Western Union...umm BIG RED FLAG. She started verifying my info name, home, address, I kept asking her to repeat the information. She was getting impatient. I asked how did you get my number again? She sighed and said ayeeeee and I hung up. LOL :P
The caller, "Mike", spoke with a non-American English accent (perhaps some broken british, Hispanic, or general Asian accent), calling for my mom (BY NAME... probably through caller ID) on behalf of the "US Grants Department". They said she was eligible for a $7,000 grant, which she didn't need to be paid back. When she asked what did this grant was for, "Mike" told her, literally, "For f***ing." What a disgusting little BASTARD!!!
And yes, the number was 1-222-222-2245.
