Type of a scam Government Agency Imposter

I misdialed, thinking I was dialing the IRS to get my AGI (adjusted gross income) to complete my tax return, when in fact I had dialed the scammer. IRS is 800-908-9946 and I misdialed 800-909-9946. A man with an Indian accent took my debit bank card no but not my acct no, as well as my Soc Sec no, mother’s maiden name, address, etc. at the end he put on a Walmart advertisement and then hung up! The same day he withdrew $1.95 with the reference 1 Perk Place. After that I started getting 1 Perk Place email adverts.

Identified as IRS and threatened to have me arrested or talk to a marshal

Type of a scam COVID-19

IRS Two calls from 938-201-1086 to my daughter's cell phone stating "Hi this is the IRS resource center it looks like you have been flagged and your stimulus payment may be in jeopardy if you do not promptly resolve this important matter”. It is a robotic call. When you call the number, they tell you to call a foreign accented man who claims to be a special agent answers the phone, gives you a phony badge number, and tries to bully you into paying some type of fee to get your stimulus payment. He was very hard to understand, so I didn’t catch all of it, but obviously not real.

Type of a scam COVID-19

Text message included a link stating, "Access benefits here" in regards to the stimulus checks saying that the IRS needed to verify my information today in order to guarantee successful payment. It was very believable and looked official. I might have actually fallen for it but I already received my 2nd stimulus check in my bank account.

I was contacted by the IRS. They said i was in default and would arrest me if i didn't pay today. I didn't have a card to pay with so they told me to go to walmart and get some Google play cards and call him back after to give him the number on the back. I thought it sounded suspicious but i was scared so i went. The young man at walmart told me something was not right. He called his manager and she told me to call the BBB. I realize it is a scam!!!!!!!!!

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received a voicemail with only half the message in my voicemail box. "And once again expired after that you will be taken under custody by the local police as there are four serious allegations pressed on your name at this moment. We would request you can get back to us so that we can discuss about this case before taking any legal action against you. The number to reach us is 518-507-5403. I repeat 518-507-5403."

I called the number back because I usually hadn't heard anyone leaving a call back number. I called, and the foreign guy said he was with the IRS. I personally know the IRS will reach out via mail. I just wanted to get this phone number added to the scammer list so others are aware.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

It was an automated call saying it was the IRS Fraud Investigation Department and for me to call immediately because I was in trouble for tax evasion that they knew I had done on purpose and to call immediately.

I did. A man with an accent picked up and identified himself by same department name and then asked how to help

I said he could help first by doing something to prove he was a legitimate agent. He said he wasn't fake. I said ok, but every day you hear about this EXACT scam on social media.

he told me I could come there and suck his *** myself to see that he is real.

I told him I knew it was a scam and I was blocking his number.. Then I hung up. and filed this.
