Re: Phone scam making its way around Baton Rouge

Certainly a scam! Unlike products telemarketers call you about, grants and financial assistance are things you apply for. And it's highly impossible to just get picked and receive money from the government. Clearly, it's a ploy designed to tempt you into giving them what they'll ask for.

There's been a lot of this scam being reported at http://www.callercenter.com already and I think, with continuous updates about them, scammers don't stand a chance anymore.
