Grant phone scam targets East Texas

East Texas consumers have been receiving phone calls telling them they have been awarded a grant through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

But in order to get the grant, the caller asks for bank account and other personally identifying information. Ultimately, consumers do not receive any grant money, and may lose their own money in the process. For more information, see the July 24 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
