Type of a scam Tax Collection

Called and said they were the IRS and I needed to contact them right away. I hung up and got their number from my phone. They were from CA. I'm from MD. It was a recording this time, before it was a person. I had to call right away. As I owed money! I heard about them from tv that IRS would never call on the phone!

They told me that I had been found guilty of tax violation and that a warrant would be issued for my arrest. And if I did not pay $500 today towards what I owe then I would have a warrant out for my arrest and they would be serving it today. They sat and read a complete letter to me and notated some IRS laws and said that I was in violation of these laws that if I did not comply that I would be in violation and need to obtain a lawyer and throughout the entire conversation the man constantly reminded me that if I was to hang up the call that as soon as the call ended the case was considered active and the warrant would be issued.

I was audited for 2007-2014 and owed for back taxes not payed. They said that they have contacted by officers and I had not got in contact with them. I had charges filed for tax aviation and intentional defraud. Criminal charges were being filed against me. The phone number came up on caller ID as US GOV. The first person I talked to said that he was an officer Brain Walker, badge # 100381. He stated that I would have to pay over $ 20,000 in court fees to be able to go to court. I would need to hire a criminal atty. He said that I would hava a tax lend, this would be filed with all three credit report agencies,my bank acc. would be frozen, a lean on my house and I would not be eligible for disabled benefits, plus more I just can' t remember it all. I was emotional distort at this point, because I am disabled and that is my only income. Also that my house could be taken too. Everything seemed so real. Since I was unable to pay the court fees, I was transferred to an agent who was handling my case. I asked again if this was a scam it was so unreal. I had gone to a tax person and was told I did not have to file taxes because I don't pay taxes. I forgot the officer stated that there was a law if you get more than $ 500.00 you have to pay taxes and I do. The IRS person Simon Matthew badge ID # 1007829351 was who was managing my case. I explained my situation and that I did not ever receive any contact, that this was the first contact. He talked for awhile about the situation. than had me get online to www.irs.gov. He guided me through so I could check who I was talking to. It showed up Rochester, NY and it came up with his phone number. While this was happening my daughter called the US treasury. He guided through payments and had me push cash. That did not seem right. My daughter told me to hang up. She was told it was a scam and the IRS doesn't talk to people, they contact through mail. She grabbed the phone and told them what she was told. They hung up.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

For the last 2 weeks we have been getting 2 calls a day from IRS Legal Department to collect taxes against a claim that was files between me and my husband. It is becoming very annoying and I know that the IRS does not call but sends requests in the mail. Our taxes are paid for 2015 and all is good.

I hesitate/will not call but I just want to report it to BBB.
