Type of a scam Tax Collection

My daughter got a letter from IRS Department of the Treasury, Austin, TX, 3651 S IH 35, STOP 6579 AUSC saying she had to immediately contact the IRS. (Potential identify theft) The IRS is outsourcing a company to check ID, called IDme, and it has made me put my daughters SSN in 8 times, take a photo of her drivers license (back and front) and then made her take a selfie - at which point they can't "identify her" and asked for a photo of the front and back of her SS card (back and front). No way is that right.

My 92 year old grandmother received a call from the IRS. They asked for her social security number, which she gave them. I called her bank to let them know. I also called our local ScamPulse.com office and was given additional advice including freezing her credit bureau reports and alerting social security administration.

They call you and there is a recording that says you can be arrested for issues regarding taxes. When they come in the line and you start asking questions they get annoyed and ask why you are calling them. Then when you point out that they are a scam they disconnect.

I received a call from someone claiming to be with SS. They asked me to verify my name and SS number which I did. When the call ended, I noticed the number seemed different, so I called the SS office and they let me know that it was a scam call.

Yesterday I answer a call where a robot was speaking telling me that my social security had been canceled and that I had to talk to a consultant.

Then answer a lady who says she has the name Moore. She tells me that my social security has been canceled because they detected criminal activity under my number and that the police are looking for me.

I told her I don’t speak English very well and she start to ask me about personal questions and them I’m start to thinking this is so strange... and I just tell her

You know what? I’ll prefer go and fix this in person, so will do an appointment...

in the end, I just I hung the call.

I answered calls on my cell. phone. Identified themselves as the IRS or US Government. I was approved for an $18,000 Grant. Press one. I refused to press one. I yelled into the phone it is a scam and hung up. The phone number in my caller ID were 440-826-9259 and 440-828-5380. I was expecting a call so I answered. I usually don't answer my phone.
