We have received some reports of individuals in our area receiving telephone calls from someone claiming to be from the U.S. Government and informing the individuals they have qualified for a $9,000 grant. The caller requests bank account information to take a processing fee and to deposit the grant proceeds. This is a scam to steal your money and/or bank account information.
