Victim Location 71129
Type of a scam Tax Collection

Veronica Green claimed there is a warrant out for my arrest due to discrepancies in taxes owed for years 2010-2015. Her ID employee # is 30100. She claimed the case file #CP12173T. She said according to Sec 101 that I owed IRS $7,986.00. If I wanted to contest this I would have to travel Washington DC. There was much noise in background as if in a call center. She said we were on a recorded line and if I hung up I would be arrested within the hour. I hung up phone and contacted BBB.

Advised they were from IRS, that this was the 2nd call, and a federal warrant could be issued if we didn't return their phone call ASAP. I didn't write the call back number down - just hung up.

Someone called and said they were from the IRS. I didn't talk to him long enough for him to threaten or ask for money, but a recording informed me not to ignore the call. When I called the number back is when he wanted a case #. I interrupted him and told him I would contact the IRS because you're trying to scam me. He immediately got angry and said "Call the IRS" and hung up.

To Whom It may Concern,

I am writing to inform you that there is people calling phone numbers , which my husband just got a call from say they are from the IRS and there was a warrant issued for my husband if he does not pay a random amount and my husband handed me the phone and I ask the lady how much the amount was that my husband had to pay and she told me that the amount was $756.32 and then I asked her if they could send me a letter detailing the case number and information and she informed me that they sent several letters and they came back because there was no one home to sign for them. Then I asked her if she could inform me what address they have on file and she hung up on me. I know there is a scam going on. the number that called me is (567)2440052 I just thought someone should know you can contact me at (***)***-*** my name is *** ***

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received a phone call and on my voicemail it stated I need to call or a warrant would be issued for my arrest. The phone number they gave me I called back and he said his name was Officer Kenneth Botkins and I needed to pay immediately or he was going to arrest me. I hanged up before they gave me any amount as I don't owe any taxes.

I received a call from 202-241-2421, claiming to be with the IRS, wanting the last four digits of my SSN, when I wouldn't provide that information the person on the line starting using profanity. I asked him where are you calling from, he said "I do not need to tell you that." I ended the call, called the number back and they answered "IRS."

I received a call and voicemail from 773-269-3251 claiming to be IRS Criminal Investigations.

It was someone in a call center named “James” (if that is a real name) that answered the phone.

I received multiple calls since Saturday, October 1, 2016. Not all the calls were from the same number. They just say this is the IRS. I then hang up. These calls were from both male and female. Today, October 3, 2016, I received six telephone calls from the IRS. I have not provided any personal information.

When I answered the call it was a recorded message supposedly from the IRS saying they had been trying to reach me and would be filing a lawsuit against me and to please call back at the number listed above. I decided to call back - a man answered and said he was Officer Jason Wright of the Investigations Department. He asked for my first and last name and number. I told him I felt sure he had that in front of him, which he denied. I never gave him my name or number. I told him I was worried about the call I had received and wanted to know what I needed to do. (this was not the first time I have gotten these calls but I decided this time I would just pull someone's chain for a little bit!). "Officer Wright" said that I needed to quit trying to run away from the situation and just give him my name and number - I then asked him if he had a badge number and he gave me IRM11005. I managed to keep him on the phone for over 18 minutes and then he began to get frustrated and agitated...told me that someone would coming to my location to take me into custody and would keep me in custody for 72 hours! And then he finally hung up on me! I called back, got another "officer", asked him to pass on to Officer Jason that I was not a stupid woman and that I would be turning the call over to authorities, this guy actually apologized for "bothering" me. Well, today, I get the same recorded call from the same number - I called back and get the same Officer Jason Wright....when he realized it was me again...he tried to turn the call in to a porno call...I said a few choice things and then hung up! I am so tired of getting these calls - I recognize these as scams, but I know there are so many that don't.....how do we get rid of this stuff???

The caller claimed that my bank accounts will be frozen because I owe money to the IRS. An automated voice mail was left when I didn't answer (caller showed up as a Washington DC number on my cell phone). When I called back, the person who answered was foreign, and I could tell did not work for the IRS based off the type of questions he was asking. When I told him if this was truly a legitimate claim then someone could send me paperwork int eh mail, he hurried to get off the phone.

This started in 2015. I started receiving messages left on my cell phone that I needed to call the IRS back immediately. I owed a debt and they were trying to collect it. If I did not respond immediately, they would file a lawsuit against me. The calls continued with a total of 12. I received two within the last two days. The calls started out as a man talking in a extremely mad tone. The calls have become more sophisticated utilizing a recording that actually sound like they could be coming from the IRS. I know this is a scam, have heard that, but also know that the IRS does not have my cell phone number and would contact me via US mail anyway.

I got a call from the provide number and they said I was being charged with tax fraud. They had my name and asked for the last four of my social and my DOB. When I asked how I knew if the call was real, he said I am not here to prove myself and gave me what he said his name is Officer Alexavier, badge #IRM0931. He gave me a case number too. He said I was being charged from the years between 2013-2015 and I committed wilful misrepresentation. When I hung up because I started to disbelieve the call, they called me back with a different number but I did not answer. That number was 18008291040.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I was called, left a robo voicemail told in that voicemail that the IRS is suing me after attempting to get into contact with me several times. I immediately called someone back, they told me that they have been attempted to get into contact with me that there was a mistake on the taxes I filed and that I owed them 2,259 dollars. That if I didn't pay now that I would be taken to court. I was utterly confused. I asked him to explain over and over again what had happened. He stated that they have been trying to contact me by certified mail and that someone has signed for all five pieces of certified mail. He called me a criminal and finally when I was over the call stated that I could be arrested. I hung up.
