The Indian guy said the federal government was giving me grant money of $7,800 for being a U.S. citizen, etc. Then gave me a MV713 ID number and told me I needed to pick a place like Walmart, CVS for where to pick it up. I asked him to send me a check, but that wasn't allowed. He told me I needed to call 408-915-6404 the financial department to verify my grant. I said I would NOT give out my social security number. I called this number and he told me I needed to purchase an itune card at Walmart. Then they wanted $200. I told this was a scam and told him to never call again. He got irate with me and hung up.

I just call them an mess with them. It's great. I told him I live at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave in Washington DC. He asked if I had a Job, so I told him yes, I'm actually Dave Thomas from Wendy's. (He passed away a few years ago). I then spent about 5 minutes trying to get him to agree that the Wendy's Frosty was superior to the McDonalds McFlurry. I put him on speaker phone and my friends and I made fun of him. At that point he started telling me he was going to F my A. He actually said "F my A" - not the swear words. It was great. He hung up.

Got a call and message from this 848-217-4202 say I qualified the Federal Government money of $7,800. I called back and asked her to explain. She gave me another number 253-243-9660 this lady couldn't even keep the weak scam going because she was very unprofessional. She got an attitude when I said no to getting a Wal-Mart card for $250, she said you have to and it will be refunded. I said no thanks and she was heated. I called the first lady using name Sophia Smith back and she attempted to confirm what the other lady said. She then offered to get her manager and I hung up. He called back, I hung up and blocked them he has tried to call two times since then
