A man contacted me online for free money. He said he was a lawyer for gov't grant money but I could only deal with him. He only wanted my drivers license # and said if I was eligible I would get my money overnight. I feel it's a scam. Whom do I contact with his e-mail address and his name?

Yes, Blondy, this is definitely a scam, glad you recognized it as such. The government - or any other grant-giving group - will never contact you in this way about getting a grant or any sort of "free money".  They will take your information and use it to do just the opposite -- take your money away. You can learn more about these free grant money scams here. Never give out personal information or numbers! Thanks for alerting others to this.
