Complaint / review text:
A student received telephone calls from a Ryan McCarthy and a Vincent Cooper who both claimed to be from the "U.S. Federal Goverment Grant Department." They told the student that she had qualified for a $6,000 cash grant because she had paid her income tax on time and that she could use the grant however she chooses, but that she had to pay $200 up front that she would get back later. Fortunately, the student recognized the calls as a scam. The contact number that the student was given for the "Grant Department" was 202-580-8490. When this number is called, a man with a very thick Indian accent answers with "U.S. Federal Government Grant Department."
