I received a call today that they were from the IRS and they were suspended because there was drug related charges on my social security. When I asked for more information regarding this they hung up.

Type of a scam Government Agency Imposter

Guy called posing as IRS agent. Stated that they have reason to believe I was tied to a drug deal at Texas/Mexican border where a car was found in my name with drugs and blood inside. I stayed on until he wanted me to repeat a case number he had shared, which I refused to do. He then said the police would be coming for me. I laughed and he hung up. Sometimes I stay on just to mess with them as it's obvious at the outset it's a scam. One new strategy they use to keep you from hanging up..."If you hang up at any time during this recorded call, we will assume you are guilty and you will be arrested." These scams are out of control. I worry about folks that don't know any better. They try to scare the crap out of you. I can see where someone might take the bait.

Type of a scam Government Grant

An Iranian called me (10/21/2019) 7 times today saying he was Steve from the IRS and that I was approved for a Federal Grant of up to 9,000.00 & he wanted to get it to me. He wanted my credit card or debit card number. He wanted my account and routing number for my bank information. Once he had an Iranian female call to ask if I had any major loans out there. Her name was mary.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Received 2 missed calls from 516-344-1271. Checked and saw I had 2 new voicemails each left by a different person. The voicemails both said I had outstanding warrants for my arrest. Since I know i don't have any legal issues i thought i would call back to see what this was about. When I called the number someone answered "IRS, this is (name) my badge number is (random number). I was informed that the warrants are for not filing taxes and that I have a large amount owed which could be cleared up over the phone. I said that's not possible because I file every year and asked to speak with a manager. The girl said no you can speak with me very rudely then hung up. I was annoyed so i called back. Same greeting but a different person. I asked right away to speak with a manager and a guy said no you can speak with me. I said I was not paying anything and this was a scam. The guy replied 3 times "Hey ***, Hey ***, this is a scam, *** you."

I was obviously furious so I wanted to file a complaint here.

The internal revenue services. The issue at hand is very time sensitive the very second you receive this message I need you or your attorney to return the call at my number which is 847-979-0706. I repeat 847-979-0706. If you don't return the call you will have to face the legal consequences.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

It first began with an automated voice saying they were the IRS and that we owe money and if we don't call back or press 1 now there would be a warrant for our arrest. That screams scam to me so I pressed 1 for the hell of it. It rang and rang and finally a women's voice answered with a heavy accent. I said take our number off your call list. Thank you and hung up.

I'm registered on the National Do Not Call list and 928-399-4863 called. It was a robo call and left a message that I was in trouble with the IRS and to call them back. When I did, a lady answered the phone as "This is the Internal Revenue Service how can I help you." When I asked why a robo call from this number keeps calling me she hung up. SCAM

If you call them back, they answer IRS and it sounds like a man with a India voice, when I told him I knew it was a scam he immediately hung up. On the voicemail they left they said this was the last time they would contact before an arrest.

Tax evasion of $5,983 over last 5 years. Asked for my zip code. First person I spoke to sounded Asian, second India. Noise in background was similar to call center. Very difficult to hear person due to accent and noise. I was told to calm down and center myself. They said because I have no arrest record was why I was being contacted by phone. Told me having my taxes done by an accountant was for my convenience and I was lazy and not smart for that. I was to be arrested that day for tax evasion and to officers would be at my door to handcuff me. I said I didn't have the money and needed time to ask a relative. I was instructed to do a third party call, but told I could not tell person on the line of the nature of why I was asking for money..they stayed on line. As they told me to stop crying I responded by telling them to stop talking down to me and behaving like a bully, that behavior got worse, so I told them to spell every word they were saying. Aggressive behavior escalated. Person gave name of Charles Green and ID # of IRN1164.

In the phone call, the scammers claimed to be the IRS. They said the government has tried to get a hold of me for the last 6 months and that a lawsuit would be filed in my name.

It is pretty clearly a fake phone call - there was obvious grammatical issues and the voice is a computer generated voice.
