Received call saying they were calling from IRS fraud division and that I would be arrested if I did not respond immediately. It gave the listed phone number above. Even though I answered the phone, I could tell it was a recorded message.

I've gotten this call a few times. Usually they say they will "report me to tge local cops" and this time "I and my property were under surveillance". I called back this time and the line was a Google Voice number and the person who answered said they were an agent with the IRS. I called the police and they said the IRS doesn't call people and wouldn't use Google Voice.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Said they were from IRS and I had a Warrant out for my arrest for making a fraudulent State Tax claim. Said Please call Telephone #029965164 wherever that may be.

So I did not respond because I am retired and even when I worked I didn't claim on my W-2 tax forms any state taxes because Texas does not require me to pay state taxes. So I have never had to claim any state taxes on my W-2 forms to make a fraudulent claim. I have received this same call about 4 times over about 3 years with the same accusation. IRS does not use this method to contact a person anyway. As for as I know this is as accurate as I could be for this is a message left on my answering machine and a little hard to understand but enough to know it was a scam.

This is the transcript of the voicemail left on my phone. I do not answer unknown calls for this very reason. I am also attaching a copy of the actual voicemail to this report. “Officially a final notice from the IRS. The nature and the purpose of this call is to inform you that we have received legal petition notice concerning a tax fraud against you. So before this matter goes to the Federal claims court house or before you get arrested, please call immediately on our department number 804-800-7004. Make sure you call us as soon as possible! Again this is Officer Steve Parker from the internal revenue services.”

Received a call today. It was a recording which started by saying "This call is officially a final notice from the IRS ... " at which point I hung up. The call log gave the number 1-210-607-8230 and the name "Janice Stickle." Below, you require an answer to "Did the scammer attempt to take money?" I was forced to say yet, though I hung up before hearing the entire pitch.

I received a phone call on 9/29/2017 from the listed number (above) on my cell phone and was unable to answer it. The message left stated, "to inform you that the IRS is filing a lawsuit against you. To get more information about this case file, please call immediately on our department number 803-626-1417. I repeat, 803-626-1417. Thank you". I knew IRS would not contact me this way so I googled the number which is registered as a landline phone in Rock Hill, SC.

Received phone call bout a lawsuit by the IRS. Knowing that the IRS does not call you, I hung up and retrieved caller's number.

An automated system called and said I had a warrant out for my arrest due to tax fraud. It stated I owned money to the IRS and I would be arrested. After calling the number back a man picked up and said, "thanks for calling IRS, how can I help you." This immediately prompted me to hang up due to its fraudulence.

Received 2 identical phone calls with the same message indicating I had four serious IRS allegations and needed to contact IRS Investigative team as soon as possible. If I didn't follow-up within 24 working hours to discuss allegations, local police would arrive at my house and take me into custody.

This number called and claims to be with the IRS. They said a warrant was issued for my arrest and no bail would be set. And they were moving forward with the lawsuit against me. First of all, I always get a refund back on my taxes so I don't owe the IRS any money. When I told them I was taping their call they said "F you ma'am" to me and hung up. This is the second time it's happened to me in 2 years. These people are crazy!
