I was called by a person stating he represented US DEPT OF HUMAN & HEALTH SOURCES. He said I had been selected for a free government grant to help with anything I needed the money for. I was very skeptic and ask questions. His answers seemed legitimate. He even gave the address of US DEPT OF H & HS in Washington along with reference to the BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU. Being I am in need for medical assistance, I agreed to the $1.92 processing fee to send out papers to be completed for the grant. After the call, I searched the above .... made a call to them and they stated it was a SCAM BIG TIME and that the $1.92 would not be the only charge. I had to cancel my CC immediately. The $1.92 had already posted as a pending transaction. Problem with trying to stop something like this is next to impossible. The phone number that was on caller ID could not be called back to. Once you have made this DUMB MISTAKE, the US DEPT has no way to track these people down.
