Victim Location 03240
Type of a scam Government Grant

I was called by someone claiming to be with the IRS. They said I was one of only a handful of people chosen by the IRS to receive a $9000 grant to which I had not applied for. When I asked how I was chosen, I was told random based on my credit history and would need to go to a CVS, Walgreens or somewhere for a Western Union or Money Gram and that once I arrived there, I needed to call a number so they could guide me through the process. Before I was given the number or any more information, I hung up. Just a few days ago, my niece received same call telling her the same thing. Someone needs to check into this.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

This number calls with a recording informing you there is a time-sensitive matter regarding tax fraud on your behalf and that you owe money. It gives a number for you to call immediately. I called back and a man with an Indian accent answered as an "agent". I asked why they are calling and they hung up on me and would not answer my question or speak to me after that. According to a quick search this scam has taken thousands from people. Please report this or something similar if you get this call.

I keep receiving phone calls from this number but when I pick up all I hear is dead air. The one time I let it go to voicemail they left a message stating that I owed the IRS money and this was my last chance to avoid jail time. I know I don't owe any money as I have already received a tax refund this year.

Automated / Computer-Gen. Voice left message stating the IRS has decided to take legal action. (*Note: I DIDN'T BOTHER TO ANSWER THE CALL & just let the Unk # go to Voice Mail). Next, I screen-captured the SCAMMER's # from the Missed Call Log & the Voicemail Log-that's the picture I've uploaded.

Also note, I am a Disabled Veteran & have been aware that we are OFTEN "targeted".

I received a robo call phone message from the IRS telling me I was about to be sued and had to call their phone number immediately. I Googled the phone number left on the message and found that other people have received the same message. Don't bother calling as it does appear to be a real law suit. IRS would send a letter. Here is the website I found.

The phone call came through my cell. They left a message asking me to speak to Alex Brown because of a warrant that was issued due to a debt I owed to the IRS. If I did not call then the case would be handed over to my local police and I would be arrested. I called the number above back from my work phone number and spoke to a different man because Alex Brown was in a meeting. He asked my name and I only gave him my 1st name (no other info was given, no address, state, last name ect). He said since I called my file was now downloaded into the federal court. I asked why had I not received any mail and he said too much personal info would be on there and they could not send in case someone was to grab it. He said I had to hire a lawyer and then to pay approximately $400 in order to pull my case out of federal court. Mind you, he has no info other than my 1st name! I said I didn't have $400 and that I wouldn't have it especially for not having any paper proof that I owed money. He then said they were immediately turning over my information to my local police and that they would be coming to arrest me at my doorstep within 30 minutes. He said good luck and hung up the phone.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

The scammer called my mother and told her she owed the IRS $6,000 and they were preparing a warrant for her arrest. Luckily, she informed them they needed to talk to her son. She got his name and phone number for me to call back. When I called there was a lot of call center background noise and the guy who answered said I reached the IRS. I asked for Officer John Miller as directed. He "transferred" me to Officer Miller (it was the same guy). Officer Miller asked my name, I gave him a fake one. He then asked if I was calling in reference to my mother and I said yes. He then told me to listen carefully to everything he says and not to interrupt him until he was done. He gave me a badge number (5740), a case no (cc1908), and rattled off a lot of alleged IRS Codes. Once he was done I told him to mail out the information. He then provided me the address associated with the number I was calling him from as to where they would send it (I never gave him the address). I told him we would go to court to get it resolved. He then asked if I loved my mother. I said, that has nothing to do with it and we'll be taking it to court. He then asked a series of other "yes" or "no" response questions, but I answered them with "we'll go to court" because I was not sure if he was trying to get me to say, "yes." At this point I told him I knew it was a scam. He still tried to convince me it was not and began cursing at me for not believing him. He then demanded I hang up if I did not believe him. I told him no, he should hang up (I figured the longer I kept him on the line, the less time he had to scam other people). After about a minute he eventually hung up.
