They have called within the past month more than 15 times. Sometimes (3) times a day. Claiming to be IRS and I owe back taxes since 2012. They have sent out numerous letters claiming I owe $6380.00 if it's not paid they will send the authorities out to arrest me immediately. The calls are as early as 9am last until 7pm. I told them to send the authorities. Then they hang up

Type of a scam Tax Collection

A foreign man called my cell phone & said he was an IRS agent & that I owed back taxes of $9800. He said if I did not pay $4000 today there would be a warrant for my arrest & that my license would be suspended. I asked to speak to a manager & he acted like he transferred the call but it really was the same person. He proceeded to use the F word & said that this was a serious offense & if I did not pay I would go to jail for 5-7 years. I was at my place of employment when the call came & I was so upset I had to leave my job. When the caller hung up on me he said "thanks for wasting my time". I googled the phone number that he called from & saw that it was a scam. I don't understand why these people are able to do this & why they are not being arrested for fraud!

Type of a scam Phishing

There number called. I called back because I missed the call. The man said that he was with the irs. He asked me for my name and dob. He then asked for the last 4 of my social. I told him that I wouldn't give it to him, but I would called him right back if he gave me a number and extension to verify that he was with the irs. He asked me why and said that he was making a courtesy call. I told him that I would not give him any information unless I could verify that he was with the irs by calling and hearing a recording that asked for an extension number. He then hung up.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Got a call from 888-928-9555 w/ recording saying I had an IRS tax debt, turned over to collections, subject to seized bank accounts, arrest ( ! ), that I needed to call the IRS at same number call came from, 888-928-9555.

I called and got a foreigner (Philippines?). He transferred me to his supervisor with the same accent.

He insisted he was in Washington D.C. and that he was an IRS employee. He could not pull up my name and had no other info on me. I was waiting for him to ask for my SSN or other info, so I told him to mail me a letter.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

Appears to be roto calls - leaving 8 - 10 messages daily on my home answering machine stating "this is the internal revenue service, you are being sued and must contact us immediately to avoid having this turned over to the local law enforcement agency" So, with full knowledge this is a scam, I first reported to the Indiana State Attorney's office on the do no disturb line, then called the number back. The special agent advised that I was going to be sued - so I promptly replied that I knew it was a scam, that I had reported to SAG and remove my number from their calling roles. I was put on hold, he came back and said Never mind...

Caller ID indicated they were out of New York, and so I did a reverse look up on the internet - comes up with information about this scam. Then a few days later, began getting the same calls but caller ID states California.

Victim Location 55016
Type of a scam Other

Received 7 automated calls from 347-394-1622 which stated that there was a lawsuit against me by the IRS and I needed to call back ASAP. Upon calling back, the person on the other end asked me my name and address and stated it was a mistake. He stated, in very broken English, that I would be removed. I then received 2 more calls within 2 hours of this conversation.

I called back again asking about why my phone # was still on the list. I was HUNG UP on 4 times, as they were unable to answer my questions and kept interrupting me while trying to clarify (again, in very broken English). I then received a call from an 800 number, which appeared to be the IRS #800. However, upon speaking with yet another gentleman who did not speak English well, he also hung up on me after asking very simple questions.

I said we were on Social Security & no taxes due 8560 if we didn't pay it they'd have the cops to pick up in 48 hrs & loose everything. He said if we didn't have that then send 300 & they'd dismiss everything then I said we couldn't do that then said they'd just dismiss the whole thing & hung up
