Cape Girardeau police warn of government grant money scam

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The Cape Girardeau Police Department is warning residents about a scam involving government grant money.

They say a man or woman with a foreign accent claims to be from the U.S. government or from the IRS. They will either tell you that you owe money or that they have grant money for you to spend.

Police say these people will ask for personal and/or banking information.

The numbers they have been calling from have a 202 area code, which is Washington, D.C.

Police ask that you not give them any person information or bank information.
