government grant representatives scamming

They asked for me. I said I was not home but asked who he was. The only words I could make out were government and grants. When I said I was not home they hung up. I tried to call back the number after reading online that other people had gotten calls from this number, but a few strange things happened. I got a few messages that the number was not in service, or that I should look up the number and call again, then a few times the number hung up with no messages. And a couple times it was busy. I believe they were a scamming team of some sort.

She allegedly is online agent for government grants. She request payment from winners through money gram, via I. Moore, and Steve Richards. She asks for funds as delivery, tax, certificate fees. Please instruct me accordingly. I believe she resides in Bainbridge, GEORGIA, African AMERICAN, but has her cover page as a Caucasian. Her photos on the fake page are on the same page from Georgia. I have the info on my FB page.
