Someone calling themselves officer Nitzwalker with a badge number of IRM1129

informed me that the IRS had a lawsuit against me. They had my address down. I didn't have to give them that.

They spoke with an accent from India.

They said there were charges against me and that there was a warrant out for my arrest concerning taxes that I did not pay from 2011 to 2015.

I was to be quite while he read the legal charges against me. I could hear enough at the end of it that I could hear him say

I was going to be kept from deporting from the country, could not leave for 5 years and that I could go down to the federal court house or pay off the fine right now. Which one would I rather do?

I asked to speak with someone that I could understand and they hung up on me.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I was called by a number similar to my company's phone numbers that I work for and was notified by "Officer Branda Garmin" that I was "under investigation by the IRS" for some serious allegations. After she continued on about the allegations I was facing and told me that I owe the IRS over $3,000, it became clear it was a scam. She then transferred me to "the most senior agent at the IRS" and recommended that I be polite and receptive to him or that I would be in trouble. Once transferred to him, he was even more aggressive and rude and threatened to send the police to my place of employment. And to that threat I said he better bring the SWAT team with him and at that point he hung up and it was over.

First time they left a message stating I was part of a lawsuit being filed on my behalf. The second call message was so broken the words were unrecognizable. Then, my husband used his phone to call them and after many rings a man answered and said, "This is the IRS...". My husband heard voices in a foreign language speaking in the background and in a short amount of time they disconnected the call.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received several calls from the "IRS" stating that there was a lawsuit against me, and that I needed to pay them money in order to get all of this resolved. The first time they called, I received a voicemail on my phone from the # (201)-948-1016. This was a general message saying that they were from the IRS, they mentioned the lawsuit, and asked for a call back. I did call them back just to see what was going on. The man that I spoke to said that they needed to confirm some information, and asked me for my address and social security number. I said that I didn't feel comfortable giving this information to them, and he immediately hung up.

I received another telephone call from the # (609)-756-1332, who said his name was Samuel Martin, who said he was calling again from the IRS. He was different than who I had previously talked to. He was very rude and told me that he would continue to call me until I gave him my social security number and address, so that this issue could be resolved. This was definitely a red flag for me, and I knew that this was a scam.

I never answered the phone because I have a monitoring service telling me the number was a potential scam. Two numbers left a message saying there was a problem with my tax filing and I needed to call them back. I never did.

On March 7, 2017, I received a telephone call from a Lewis Lerner who provide a badge number of GS1917. She also provided a case file number CCB501. She stated that she was calling about tax invasion and that I owed the government $4,700.00 and it was for the years 2010 - 2015. She wanted to know how I wanted to solve this issue, in court or out of court; at that point I told her that I was on disability. At that time she passed the call on to a head officer; however, I could not understand his name. He stated that the batch number I put in for my employer did not match up with the system. I stated to him that I was on disability for those years and that I am still on disability. He said, how would you like to resolve this, in court or out of court. He said I had to pay 15% of the total or I would have to obtain a criminal attorney and I would spend five years in prison. I said I could not pay, what I receive each month is what I need to pay my bills. He said a warrant will be issued for my arrest and he asked if I understood that and I said yes, I guess so. He then stated ok, have a nice day.

I was scared. He said unless I settled out of court by paying $2,986.73 immediately I would be arrested and held without bond TODAY! He gave me ID# IRM5347 and Case #TDS5616. I asked him to repeat the info and his name, he gave me a different name of "Steven", I said "I thought your name was "Ron" which he replied "sorry, he was talking with someone else....I smelled a rat at this point!!! I told Ron-Steven or whatever his name was, I did not have that amount of money, he then asked did I have $1000.00, I said I only had $8.00 in my checking and no savings account, he mumbled a few words than hung up. I called back but got hung up on again. I called using a different phone and asked for "Ron Martin" but they recognized my voice and hung up again. SCAM!!!!!
