Type of a scam Tax Collection

In the last week I have been receiving voice mail calls from callers stating that it is the IRS. I called the number they provided of 320 207 6942. It took a few rings for someone to answer the telephone and it also took a few minutes for a woman to answer. A female, with a real strong accent, stated IRS. I just said I was calling you back and at that time she asked me my name. I gave my name. The lady said I will tell you what is going on but please do not interrupt me. The lady said that they went through my taxes and she stated that my information did not match up and there was a warrant out for my arrest. She also stated that I owed $3,000.00 plus fines. I tried calling the number again and told the woman who answered that do you think I believe anything you said, and I said I was going to call the ScamPulse.com and called her a name and hung up.

I have received two different robo calls stating they have a lawsuit with my name on it and before they send it to my local courthouse to call them back. When I called the phone numbers both of them answer as the IRS with a man with a foreign accent claiming to be a IRS Agent. This is the scam that has been going sround for sometime now, The calls stopped for awhile until this past wek. I received a robo call on mon May 8th from 1-631-550-7771 which was a robo call directing me to call them. I received another robo call today from 1-631-343-0219 same foreigner calling claiming he was the IRS.. These people need to get a job and to stop trying to scam people out of their hard earned earnings.

Good morning. I received a threatening call this morning from 206-204-5478 claiming to be the IRS regarding tax fraud. It was a pre-recorded message left on my voice mail stating this was my final notice that I’ve been marked as committing tax fraud & would be arrested. No business name was listed but the above phone number was left. It’s the same number that called. Has anyone reported this number as a scam? I have an accountant that does my taxes so I’m sure this has to be some sort of scam.

I received a call from 720-442-7718 claiming to be with IRS. Between 2011-2013 I owed them $997.13. And if I didn't listening to what they had to saying the would come and arrest me and they had already contacted the FBI. They wanted me to go walgreens, krogers, walmart and for me to stay on the phone with them while I did this. I am not sure now but I think they wanted the money wired to them. I hung up on them and called my accountant. He advised the IRS would send a letter first, not just call you. They have tried to call several times since then. I have not lost any money but wanted to warn others.

This number has called 7 times today claiming to be the Criminal investigation division of the IRS, speaking in an Indian accent and threatening to send the police, they have left messages that say the same thing in a computer voic that says they will send the "Coops" if not contaced in 24 hours.

They have called now more than a dozen times from diffferent numbers, the latest was California 209-636-6407. Interestingly the calls started immediately after I placed a call to a colleague in Texas in the same area code. Again I called a colleague in California then the calls started from the 209 Area code. Maybe coincidence but starting to wonder if they have hacked either my phone or the phone company (Verizon)

Said Internal Revenue Service had issued an arrest warrant in our names. We should contact the aller by phone for help.

The message was on my answering machine and I didn't call them back so some of the questions/answers below don't apply.

This company claimed to

He the IRS collecting back owed taxes and claiming that I was under audit. If I didn't reply back to them they would call the authorities and have me arrested if I hung up the phone. They actually hung up on me and said I was be arrested for four counts of defrauding the IRS. Sounds very fraudulent and like a scam.

As I tried to indicate above, a message was left on my answering system that I needed to contact IRS concerning a pending lawsuit against me. I knew that the phone call was coming from Ohio because my phone tells me where it is coming from, but not indicate that it was Federal govt. I got another phone call about an hour later and called back. I told them I felt it was a scam because the phone would have told me US govt and the phone call would not be coming from Ohio. After I told the individual I thought it was a scam the phone line went dead, the individual would not indicate that he was still there.

My mother has received several phone calls from this phone number. The initial call is a recorded message that instructs you to call the number back. When she called back the person asked for her name, phone number and address; none of which she provided. They told her that this was her final warning and that a law suit has been filed against her. After refusing the give information, she immediately ended the call.

Called claiming to be the IRS and " we have been trying to reach you. A lawsuit is being filed against you." These folks called and threatened me that I owed taxes from an audit of 5 years of taxes. I had miscalculated. Continued that an arrest warrant was issued and all of my property and bank accounts were being seized. Asked if I wanted to go to court or settle out of court. Have sent me certified mail several times with no one to sign, these "confidential letters" so we're returned to them.

ALL of this is a lie.

There were serious threats that I need to give them agreement to pay at minimum $1500.00 to stop the action against me right now. If I hang up this call then he will he will act

and is my only chance to stop this.

Several times, I asked who is this, why are you calling me, never received any mail from IRS. Asked to send- fax-scan me these letters, I need proof that this is real. The "supervisor " became more aggressive. I hung up. Then he called back 3 times in a row. I ignored these calls. I admit this took me by surprise and I reacted with panic.

The "officers" each provided badge number and names that did not match their accents.

After I calmed down, I went to the irs.gov website and read about scams and how to file a complaint with the BBB. Tomorrow I will contact the local newspaper and police.

Thank you.
