Someone pretending to be the IRS threatening a law suit if I did not press 1 to speak to an agent. Person had foreign voice and I asked who he was. He replied he was an agent. I said the IRS does not call people and he hung up.

I was scammed via the phone from IRS imposters on Monday, 11/26/18. I have lost $6000 in ($1900 in cash & $4100 in credit) to Google Play cards from this awful scam. I received a call a few weeks prior to the scam from the same number (202-719-5316) with a recording stating that I owed money to the IRS & that there were serious allegations against me & that I needed to call back in order to avoid facing legal action.

I ignored that call but then unfortunately fell victim when they called back & I answered on Monday, 11/26. They told me that there was a warrant out for my arrest due to $5276 I owed to the IRS discovered from an audit from miscalculations & errors for the tax years of 2012-2017. They told me that there were 4 severe allegations against me: 1) violation of Federal tax regulation 2) violation of inter revenue code 3) violation of theft by deception 4) willful misrepresentation of information to the government.

Officer Fiona *** with said Federal Batch # IRM 026814 & later Officer Neal *** when I was transferred to the 'Resolution Team.' My case ID # was IRSC031486. Officer Fiona told me that a tax collector had come to my home in September & December of 2017 to collect the owed amount as well as June of 2018 but I wasn't home so he had left yellow notes on my door. She told me that they had also sent letters to my address & that they had made sufficient attempts to contact me in regards to this matter. She told me that this call was an exception because I don't have a criminal record & this was their final attempt to contact me to get the payment.

At this point she started talking about the warrant out for my arrest & that I had some choices to make, that either I could handle this matter publicly or privately. Also that I either had the option to appeal this case in court with a lawyer costing thousands of dollars or I could settle this matter right now. She also kept telling me about the 'privacy act' & that I couldn't involve a 3rd party at all & that this matter must be kept between myself & the IRS.

She told me to hold the line & never disconnect or involve another person & to leave work & directed me to the nearest Seven Eleven to go & buy an EFTPS card. Once I confirmed that I couldn't find what she was describing I was asked to buy a Google Play gift card for $500. The 7/11 only took debit or cash so I went to take out $500 cash at the ATM there but I was only allowed to withdraw $400. After a call with my bank I ended up paying the $400 cash & the other $100 in credit.

Sadly, I let this go on for quite some time. I visited 2 *** pharmacies, a *** *, & a *** *** & a few gas stations inbetween in attempt to find these giftcards. Since it was a 'federally recorded line' I was asked to purchase $300.00 worth of the $5276.00 that I owed because that's what I said I could pay today early on in the call, so I was held to that amount.

I eventually swung by a *** Bank & took out $1000.00 cash from my savings account in order to avoid dealing with my credit cards that had kept declining due to fraud alerts. I later then went back to the ATM & took out another $500 from my checking account in order to hit the $3k mark.

Once I was able to purchase $3k worth of the Google Play giftcards I was transferred to the 'Resolution Team' & that I was no longer facing any legal trouble, however the warrant for my arrest was still active & my case was still not closed.

I was told that I had proved over the federally recorded line that I had proven enough that I was willfully attempting to remedy this case but that somewhere along they way I had indicated that I was perhaps trying to back out. They told me that I needed to collect the remaining $2276.00 in order to prove my intent that I was trying to not get arrested.

They kept telling me that at the end of this once I collected all of the funds that my warrent arrest code would be given to me & that someone would come to my home the following day for a counseling session to explain what happend to me to ensure that it never happens again. They told me that I just had to prove my intent in purchasing the $2276 & that the officer that was to counsel me was to reimburse me with a check for the $2276 amount during our session.

I was hesitant to keep going as I had no more cash & I didn't want to charge anything but Officer Neal told me to keep trying with my credit cards, so I did. At the end of it he told me they had made an exception for my case for the length of time it took. They told me not to go to work the next day as it would have been very difficult to focus at work until my case had been officially closed. He told me he would call me the next morning between 9-11 a.m. & could have more questions. He kept telling me that I had no longer been facing legal trouble but that it was best to not go to work.

I feel very embarassed, scared, shocked, & really violated after this happened to me. I literally almost crashed my car into a median as I was driving about the city in this state, he kept telling me to be normal. It's like I was possessed. I hope you can help me.

I have every receipt & giftcard, as they repeatedly kept telling me to not lose. Please let me know if there's anything else you need from me regarding this scam.

Thank you.

Said that I owe 3986 and I have only until tonight before I would be arrested pay it.

Both numbers called me within a couple days of each other allowing them to leave a message. When you check the message the 2022397814 tells you that you have an IRS debt and that you have a warrant for your arrest and tells me I need to call the 202#.

When you call the 2068011974 the answering machine says Officer Eric Wright or White. When you reverse check the number it comes up to a Peter Black Foreign person.

Both numbers are scams because I know the IRS doesn't call you to tell you that you have a warrant for your arrest and I do not have an IRS debt. I just wanted to make people aware because there are many vulernable people out there. I did call them back on a different number to see what they wanted and each time they would just hang up but did answer the phone Internal Revenue service. I called back so many times to try and get information to find that the 206# was later disconnected or changed with a verizon wireless code of 1 switch 1189-3. I tried to get as much information as I could.

I received a call from the IRS saying they were filing a lawsuit against me. The call was from 936-230-0396.
