Type of a scam Tax Collection

I got a call from a Steven Wilson from # 212-547-9867 who said he was with the IRS and told me I needed to "straighten up because he was an officer of the law". I hung up on him but he called back from a different # 541-994-3636. I read in the paper not too long ago that if we get calls like these then we need to report the #s which is what I did with the BBB

I have received voicemails from these above numbers telling me that the IRS has found fraudulent reporting on my tax filing, or fraudulent activity connected with my SS #. One of the calls identified herself as Deputy Director Samantha from Social Security Administration saying my SS# has been compromised. One or two stated my SS # was going to be suspended because of suspected fraud. All of them were electronic digital voicemails rather than real people. I obviously did not return these “urgent” calls, believing them to be scams phishing for my SS #. Two calls were from CT (Stamford & Redding) & one was from Manchester, NH.

Received call from an entity claiming to be the IRS. Stated that if I did not contact them (aka the IRS) back at the number provided that legal action would be taken against me. This phone call was followed up within five minutes by a restricted number with a live person telling me they were calling from the US Treasury. The first phone number was not restricted - 786-504-1762.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Checking messages on my recently acquired cell phone, it looked like a friend from Texas was trying to contact me regarding an upcoming visit.The creepy robo-voice said this exact message: "Right now you and your physical property are both being monitored and it is very important that I do hear back from you as soon as possible before we proceed further in any legal manner. My direct callback number is 325-206-6010. Again, that number is 325-206-6010. Thank you." I called back later in the day, fairly sure that it was a scam, and was surprised that after a period of background music, a person actually answered. The woman who answered was very heavily accented, but Identified herself as an agent of the IRS, and wanted to contact my deceased mother (2007). I can see trying to scam a woman who would be 97 at this time, but how did her name get associated with my recently acquired number?

My brother recieved a phone call the first time the person left a message and wanted a phone call back. So he called them back. He told them there is no way he owed money. The second time he was told he was getting arrested within the hour. I googled the phone number and it was a spam phone number.
