Foreign individuals that called claiming to be the IRS. The guys name was supposedly Officer James Martin Badge #IRM9971. He asked for my last name to verify who he was speaking with. I gave him this & proceeded to ask him what it was about. He then asked for the last 4 digits of my social #. I asked him for his. He told me that I was being charged with tax fraud. When I started to question him he hung up on me. I called back & he cursed me out. I called back a 3rd time & a female answered & told me not to call back. I called back many times to let them know how many scam reports that they already had & that I would add another to their list.

I got an article - telling of this scam - but wanted to add one more note - I have gotten at least 4 calls regarding this. When the threatening call comes--- at no time do they give their name - NOR do they ask for any particular person. Clearly they are trying to get someone to react. Know that I owed nothing & having worked in a banks fraud unit, I was aware immediately that this was bogus. These people tend to prey upon people of "age" who are already on a fixed income.

I was called by this number 760-248-0469 3 times today. Left voicemails all three times, telling me that the IRS was filing a lawsuit against me and to call 631-402-9589 to see about my claim number. I called to see and it said the number was not a working number.

I received a phone call from this number saying they repersent the IRS and wanted me to pay the full amount of 2980.00 over the phone. Threatened to serve papers in the next 48 hrs and have me arrested and put in jail and moved to washington federal prison. Then ask if I could pay 500.00 down with payment plan to stop the proceedings. Told them I couldn't and then he said what about 200.00 or 100.00 down. Still told him I couldn't. He kept saying through out the hold phone call of approx. 30 to 45 mins. that this is being recorded. when i finally refused everything and kept saying I had no money at this time then he finally hung up. The phone number that I received the call from is 206-209-1631

I received a phone call from a person that said they were the IRS. They told me that they audited my taxes and that I owe $5320 due to unpaid taxes. Wanted to make arrangements for me to pay this debt. I was told I could go to jail for up to 5 years, or go to Washington DC and fight the charges. Was also told that if I didn't cooperate, they would cancel my drivers license, etc. The number on my answering machine is 202-800-7859.. He said his name was officer Peter Max, badge number GS5583. The case number is 969812. Luckily I rememebered scams like this being reported on the news, so I challenged him, and he hung up.

I received a phone call, My caller ID said: MVICE 1-657-271-1082. The caller spoke very bad english, had an accent likely India or Pakistan possibly Middle eastern, said his name was Jim Cole (LOL). Gave me a File # and a badge #.

He said The IRS filed a law suit against me in 2013 in Metaire, La.. If that was the case I would have been served by now. Either at work or home same employer since 2008, same home address since 2006, Had to be a scam. Hung up the phone got another call 20 minutes later. From A Jesus Martinez 509-723-1877 the same thing just worded a little different.

I received a call to notify me that there is an arrest warrant issued under my name for 'severe charges' that are 'likely to be pressed against' me. The caller identified herself as Sandra Williams, Investigation Officer of the IRS Badge #735937. She stated that before they 'start legal action' and 'get me arrested' on 'the charges' I should call back their department number and if I fail to get back in the 'next couple hours' my 'case files' will be sent to local police and they 'will have to get me arrested on the charges.' I let them know that I know they were scamming me because I know the IRS does not contact via telephone call and I looked it up and do not have an arrest warrant. She responded that I would face the consequences and then promptly hung up the phone.

Note: I have already reported this to the IRS.

She called me and told me that there was a discrepancy on my taxes from 2010-2014 and that they had done an audit and that I owed money ($5900). She told me that I could get an attorney but if I did it would take time and that by the time it was said and done they would have confiscated my property and taken away my drivers license and that I would probably spend time in jail. She told me that they would do that 35 minutes after I hung up after the call and that a sheriff would come to my house. They gave me an ID number and they gave me the officer name of Carolyn Parker. She couldn't even say the name correctly. I told her that I worked for the federal government and that I needed a number to verify this information, and she hung up the call.

A person called and said that I had an arrest warrant out because of a tax debt. The name that was left was Steve Smith & phone # (949) 627-2069. I called the number back & a person answered that identified himself as Office James Anderson ID#1997144. He began to tell me that a warrant was being issued and that I owed $ 1,247.00 in incorrect tax filings for the past 5 years. I know about scams so I told him that I didn't have money to pay. He then asked how much money I did have & could pay today?? I ask how I was supposed to make the payment and he rudely said that "I'm asking how much money you have"??? He told me that an officer had been to my home two times already. I hung up.

Previously in August I got two similar calls and a voice message that I kept. The number was (202) 524-8877. When you call this number its says that the call cannot be completed as dialed

Please help me...
