Type of a scam Tax Collection

IRS Telephone Scam - I received a threatening voicemail stating to call 908-975-0525 before my bank accounts were frozen and I was arrested. I returned the call and it was answered by a man who stated, "IRS." I was informed that I was selected at random for a tax audit, and it had been found that I intentionally defrauded the Internal Revenu Service. Because I had not responded to prior correspondence, there was a warrant out for my arrest. I was further informed that if I disconnected the call, it would "activate" something (unclear as to what that was), and that authorities would be at my house within 45 min to arrest me. I was given a case# for my audit and a warrant# for my arrest.

I received a call and a voice mail about me owing back taxes. I just got married 3 weeks ago and they had my married name and said I owed back taxes. I asked them what name the back taxes were under and they said her married name. I told her I only had this name for 3 weeks so how could I owe back taxes and she hung up on me. I also received a text message threatening me with international fraud and to call 469-982-5000. The voice mail I received wanted me to call 707-271-0156

I let the call go to voicemail while I was at work. The voicemail reported that federal agents would be after me if I did not call within a couple hours. I called back to see what was going on, IRS was repeated three times before i said can I help you? The guy asked my age, my age do you know my name I replied? Had my husbands info originally with Z's in the spelling in random places also mine. He was able to give me an employee ID number but not accurate for IRS employees. He reported that I defrauded the government since 2013 and need to pay over 5K or they would seize everything. I did not offer any money ... rather quite the opposite with other legal issues at this time. However;

I received call allegedly from the IRS saying they were going to suspend my SS# because it had been used in a criminal case in Texas. The caller had an accent. He read off my complete social security number as well as a case number and arrest warrant number. He would not tell me where he got my SS# and ended the call. The number on my caller ID was 800-222-4569.

Received a call where the man reported he was with the IRS and doing an investigation. The IRS does not call you and nor would they call about an investigation into you. This man was seeking compromising information, I knew it was a scam so I hung up.

I do not answer unknown numbers so the call went to voicemail. I received the call 11/26/18 at 2:51 pm central. The call was a "taped" message stating that the IRS had an arrest warrant issued for me. That I could lose my house if I did not call the number, 660-246-4792, to resolve and pay what was due the government.

I received an automated call claiming to be from the IRS saying that I owed them money or I would be sued. I looked the number up and saw it was a scamming number. I want to report this to make sure others do not believe this to be real.

I've been getting calls on my cell phone from the IRS. They say I've been chosen for a $7000 grant. They gave me an ID number. to call back. She asked me if I was married. When I call it back, it's a NY number, and they say they are with the Grants and Treasure dept, I spoke to Ashley and she told me to check it out with as they are legit. They want me to go to Walmart and buy a $200 refundable card, and call them back. I called them back at 929-390-2338 because I was already at Walmart. Some calls it's a guy, other times it's a girl. All of the numbers look like they are coming from Washington DC.

Started with a ROBO call stating that I was under investigation. Most of call was not understandable. I called the number back 254-829-5136 which came up from Texas. The man sounded very garbled and hard to speak English. When I questioned his being from USA he called me a xxxxxx xxxxxx. That let me know he was a scam. I also remember the initial call said if I did not respond I would have a warrant issued by some Judge name I could not understand. Wish I could give more but I was caught off guard. Best thing I did was ask him to confirm who he is!
