Looks like the IRS website and then after payment it’s explains it is a third party site for to gain a EIN # which is free.

He said he was an Irs recruiter and he wanted me to fill out paperwork. I thought it was legit because i did fill out an app for the irs but i guess that was fake. He also set up a zoom meeting as well. Now when i tried to file taxes someone used my social security number.

Reduced pay during service. Instead of using payroll the owner decides writing personal checks and using cash app instead of the system for the business and takes a percentage based off taxes. Unprofessional and not how a business is run. Proceeds to threaten me with law enforcement instead of recrifying the issue legally.

I am a newly licensed Advanced Practice Registered Nurse in the state of Florida, and I just set up a LLC for myself recently. Before I can open a bank account for my LLC, I have to apply for a Federal EIN. So, today I Google searched "LLC EIN" and clicked on one of the first websites that came up:

I went on this website and it looked like a legitimate IRS website. I entered in all of my information, including name, address, social security number, etc. Then it directed me to a page to enter debit card information for a payment of $299.00. I am totally new to this whole process so I did not know that an EIN should have been free. So I paid the $299.00 not knowing, and then I contacted a friend to confirm that it is normal to be charged for an EIN. I was informed that this service should be free. So there is someone getting peoples' information and money, and then filing for a FREE EIN number and then emailing the person their EIN number.

The email does not have an address on it. When I call the number online, it goes to a "voicemail box that is full" so I could not leave a message. All $299.00 has already processed, and I have no way of knowing if they are going to use my personal identification information. I am going to my bank today to file a dispute to try to retrieve my money, but I was unable to stop payment since it was a debit transaction.

I am not sure if this company has already been reported to the or not, but I hope they can be stopped!

Thank you.

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 office and was given additional advice including freezing her credit bureau reports and alerting social security administration.

I hung up and blocked number. It sounds very legit what they are saying tho k personally know was suspicious. Want others to be aware so wonf give personal information out to these people, especially social security numbers.

I was trying to find info on how to get a hold of the irs to verify my identy. An I found a site that said call the irs buy I've Bern doing that so I went into messages to see if anyone else had any ideas. There was someone that wrote they had been trying to get the irs also an they finally got a number an it was the one I put above. I called it an he said he was an irs trouble shooter an in complaint dept. I ask him how I could be sure he was really with its an he said he was on line helping someone could I call back. He said sure or he'd call me back I said ok an I told him I needed his badge number or some proof he was with its he said ok. But never heard back I have the text where we talked.

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.

- Peoria, IL, USA

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.

- Fenton, MO, USA

Last four digits of my ss number and bank that I use and how many credit cards do I have.

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.

- Amherst, OH, USA

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.
