Identified as with IRS and wanted me to provide a recent address. Told me who I was. Gave me old addresses from my past. I advised IRS does not contact people and would definitely have a more recent address than those since i file tax returns each year. Would not give them my recent address and told them this was a scam and to not call me again

Total money lost $40,000
Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received a automated message in my voicemail stating that some one had been trying to contact me about a legal matter ( "4 serious allegations pressed")and I needed to return their call right away.

When I called the telephone number provided in the Voicemail, I spoke to a man named Song Wilkinson who claimed I owed a large sum of money to the IRS , including up to $22,000 for legal fees. When I questioned the debt and mentioned that I needed to contact my tax guy and find out more information, I was told that calling my IRS guy will deem the out of court settlement null and void. There were about 4 or 5 people involved, calling and making threats to have me arrested. I received a call from 202-660-9953 from a rep who claimed to be a police officer, stating that if I was not going to comply, he would track my location from my phone and come and arrest me. He also informed that the amount owed would increase If I was arrested for failing to comply. I was then told that they would try to help me out, and reduced the legal fees from $22,000 to $11,000.

Over the course of 4 days, I was instructed to travel to various apple stores in Annapolis, Golden Ring, and Columbia mall, to purchase I tunes gift cards in the amount of $4500.00. The cashier at the Apple store did question the reason for my purchase, but the scammer who I believed to be the IRS at the time, told me that If I am asked the reason for purchase, inform this the gift cards were for a family member/friend. The scammer had me stay on speaker phone during the transactions.

After I provided the iTunes gift card info over the phone, the IRS scammers provided numerous confirmation codes/#s to appear more legitimate. The scammer also requested the last 4 digits of My social security number and a picture of My I.D.

The scammer told me that one of the payments , from my credit card did not go through, and requested a photo copy. At the time I did not know this was a scammer so I sent the photo of my credit card. My credit card companies have been very helpful and have initiated investigations on my behalf. My Bank , however has informed that they are not able to assist/dispute cash withdrawal transactions.

The scammers goal was to lure me in with a fear tactic/false sense of urgency, have me believe they they were trying to help me to gain my trust, and then empty my accounts.

I questioned the legitimacy of the calls numerous times, hung up on the scammers, even questioned their very American sounding names and foreign accents. The scammers had an explanation/excuse for every concern. This was a lesson learned the hard way.
