202 Area Code Scam Calls from Cybercriminals

Scammers are calling persons from a 202 area code and telling them that they qualify for a $7000 or 7K government grant. The amount may change. Please note that this is a scam and there is no $7000 government grant. The scammers will ask you to send money via Western Union, Moneygram, Prepaid debit, iTunes Card, or ask you for your credit card information, which they claim they will need for the payment of the processing fee, taxes or delivery fee.

    "I received a text message from a 202 area code which showed as Washinton DC. It said: 'ALERT: Important message to view visit hxxp://boaisb.online.'

    That site said: "We're letting you know that we've detected some unusual activity on your Chase Bank Card on 5/3/2020. As a precaution, we have locked your Chase Bank Card in order to protect against future unauthorised transactions.'

    They wanted me to start a verification process which I ignored. My online account did not show any alerts. Chase Bank needs additional information from you before you can continue using your card. Start the 'Verification Process' below so we may gather with you additional verification needed. © 2020 JPMorgan Chase & Co."

    Received via email.
