I recieved a phone call yesterday from a company stating that I was approved for a grant. I just would like to verify the company is true and real. The company's name is Human Healthcare Services at the HHS Tower in D.C. and the contact person was Angela Jones at 202-47*-3941.

I strongly doubt that was a legitimate call. The government DOES NOT call to tell you that you have qualified for a grant, and I don't know of any groups that do so, especially if you have not submitted an application. Most frequently these are scams and people are trying to get you to send money and/or get you to give them your personal information. Please NEVER give them such information, and do not send them any money thinking that you will receive a “grant.” It just doesn't happen that way. Important: read this quick article about Free Money Phone Call Scams so that you will not fall for one of these calls!
