Called claiming to be from the "IRS". Called several times today, every hour. They told me I owed the IRS money for back taxes - I am elderly and have not had to file taxes in years. They are threatening and try to scare people into sending them money. Sometimes, they will leave a number and tell me I have to call this number back.

This phone number contacted me (I'm from Ohio) and claimed to be the IRS. I'm sure this is a federal offense.

I received an automated voicemail message from this number today from Ocotillo, CA at 9:10 AM stating "this is to inform you that the IRS is filing a law suit against you. To get more information about this case file, please call immediately on our department number 442-900-7092." I knew immediately it was a scam. I called and the individual identified himself as Steven Griffin #096675 a Federal Agent of the IRS Investigation Department. The more I questioned and wouldn't provide any identifying information he became defensive and agitated and demanded to know if I was investigating him then hung up. I called back much later to an open line with dead air. When I said "hello" a man said "bye-bye". So I called again and reached "Service Crime Investigator Officer Paul Aaron". I questioned again and he demanded to know when I received my call. As I gathered that information, he hung up. I called one more time and reached Walter Gersmit Rodrboso Internal Revenue Member 7425 (seriously - can't make this up). I never offered any identifying information and he informed me I was behind 3 years in filing my taxes and "paying less than I should not the fully right amount" He stated I'm paying only $300 when it should be $500. I asked if that was state or federal and he said both. Odd - since when is the Federal IRS so interested in my state taxes. I asked why I hadn't received anything in the mail and he said it was sent certified 5/19/16 to 211 Orange Science street. Interesting. Never heard of that but he offered no city or state. He said it's 2013-2015 and my outstanding balance is $1562 including the pending taxes, late fees and legal charges. He repeatedly asked me if I wanted to resolve now or "fight the IRS in criminal court". He told me I had 5 days to resolve or I would need to hire a criminal attorney to fight them in court. I asked him to confirm he was an employee of the US Government department of IRS and he did. I asked if he was headquartered in Maryland and he said "No - the District of Washington" I did not laugh. He repeatedly asked me if I could hire a criminal attorney and face jail. I again asked if he was aware of what jail time someone who impersonated a representative of the US Government might face. I also asked if their calls were recorded for quality assurance and training purposes and let him know that mine were too with voice recognition and asked who he thought might be wishing for a nicer jail cell. He then told me I would be facing $75K plus legal charges and late fees and asked me if I was writing any of this down. I let him know I was doing my best and to call me back in 30 minutes. I told him I actually was a criminal attorney for the state. He wanted to know what state. I suggested he refer to my tax records for that information and the call ended.

This "IRS" office called my home on six different occasions, twice on Wednesday, September 23 at 12:53 p.m. and 2:42 p.m. The next two calls came on Friday, September 28 at 12:05 p.m. and 1:54 p.m. The last two calls came on Monday, October 3 at 2:04 p.m. and 3:20 p.m. Each time the message started To call them Or have my criminal attorney contact them as soon as they left the message. If I didn't contact them, I would be arrested for both tax fraud and tax evasion. On Saturday, October 8 at 3:29 p.m., I tried calling back the number they listed to find out who they were. The message on the number stated it was an 04 message, which stated the number was not working. I kept the messages on my answering machine.

The person that called said they were with the federal IRS and I owe them thousands of dollars and for me not to call any third party about this issue because the FBI is listening to all of my phone conversations and they will put me in jail.

Victim Location 70605
Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received a phone call of a recorded message that stated a name and phone number of an "IRS agent, Ms. Gray" cautioning me to not ignore the call from 818-330-5440. I called back and reached a man with a Jamaican accent who identified himself as an agent. I heard several voices talking in the background like a Telemarketing company. I asked for MS. Gray and he said she was not available because she had "gone home". I asked who he was calling for because it was a new phone number and I keep getting texts and phone calls for the previous owner of the phone number. He told me my name. He asked if I knew why Ms. Gray called. I said no. He said it was because I had filed my taxes incorrectly. I repeated, "I filed my taxes incorrectly?" He said yes. I told him he would have to send me a letter. I hung up the phone. I KNOW I have not filed incorrectly.

Caller informs the answer that this is the final notice for an IRS investigation and that the answer needs to call back immediately. The caller must be anticipating below average intelligence to think people would believe that the IRS would use a phone call for any official means of communications.

When I called to number back to have my phone number removed from the calling list, an Indian voice answered stating that he represented the IRS and needed to take down my personal information. When I refused and informed him that he was not from the IRS, the line was disconnected before I could ask to be removed from the calling list.

This number has called numerous times, never leaving a message. I answered the other day and a recorded message stated that the Federal Marshal will be coming to my house as an arrest warrant has been issued for my failure to pay taxes to the IRS based on my last year's tax return. It continued to state that I should call a number and arrange immediate payment to prevent my arrest within in the next 24 hours. I did not get the number I was suppose to call, as I knew this was a scam from the get go.
