A man called my with a thick accent, claiming that he was calling on behalf of the US government to award me financial aid money that I would not have to pay back. He said that I was randomly selected due to being a good citizen. They money couldn't be used for bad purposes, and I was being awarded $84,000 for my education. He confirmed my name, phone number, and address (all were correct). He then said that the only way the money could be awarded was directly. They wanted banking information or debit card information. When I asked if they could send in check form, he said no, it must be directly to an account. I told him I was declining, he didn't understand what the word ment. I told him I didn't want the money then. And he said really? I said yes, and he hung up on me.Show more...
