Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

My husband answered a call today on our home phone from the IRS. The caller asked if we would be available today at 2:00 P.M. to take a picture with a number of people that won a check and a car. Did not give the mount of the check. My husband replied yes. I asked if I had to give money down. He said no. Just have your state ID. We do not have the phone number that called. We know if they want money it is a scam. All they wanted was our State ID. We do enter a number of contests.

Got a call from this number with a recording stating the call was from irs and my irs account (ssdi) had been breached and to press one for further instructions. i did not press anything other than end, but this is clearly a scam to get personal information to steal money. The irs does not and would not contact anyone this way.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Call was answered and a recording claimed that fraud was perpetrated with my Social Security Number, and to avoid "federal prosecution originating in the state of Texas by local Court or Magistrate" that I should act immediately. Then it asked if I wanted to find out more about this to push #1 on my phone. I did that and a person answered. There were sounds of a call center in the back ground and the person answered Internal Revenue Service". This is clearly a scam because it take hours on the phone to talk to anyone at the IRS office. I told him that I knew he was a scam and to never call me again. I then hung up on them.
