Last year I got a phone call from a woman with a bad English accent (calling from D.C.), telling me that since I had such a good credit rating (no late payments, no bankruptcy filing in the last two years, etc.), that the federal government was going to give me a $6200 grant that I would never have to pay back! I promptly informed her that, from what she had just said, she had absolutely no idea what was on my credit reports, therefore she was a scammer, and Good-Bye! I got an identical call a couple months later from a guy, but his English was so bad, I told him I didn't understand him and hung up!
And I also have received emails, evicting me from my place of residence/mandatory court appearances! What makes it interesting is that my wife and I broke the lease on our last apartment after a month, due to bad living conditions, but that is another story!
Edited because I can't type!
