Total money lost $2,000
Type of a scam Tax Collection

While at work, I was contacted via phone. They left a message stating that I needed to call back as soon as possible. I called the number back and was transferred to "the man in charge". An "Officer" informed me that from years 2014-present, I was delinquent on my taxes. He said that my name was on a "list" for tax evasion. He said that I would be required to pay a certain amount of money to the federal government.

Back story: I have a "tax man" that assisted me this year in filing my taxes. The sum of money that I owed was the total sum that I paid the IRS this past year.

I began to explain to the man that I have had help filing my taxes over that time period and that I wanted to discuss the matter with him before further discussing this claim. He immediately lashed out, became threatening towards me, scolded me for attempting to discuss this "private matter with other people" and said that if I tried to discuss this matter with any other person, local officials would come to my place of work and arrest me right on the spot. This "Officer" said that if I ended the phone call, he would send officials again to my work and have me arrested. He further said that if I refused to pay this lump sum, he would contact my current employer, discuss the matter, and do everything in his power to get me fired. He also said that he would make it impossible to work in the state of Michigan again. Out of fear for my freedom and job, I continued the conversation. The "officer" said that no personal accounts would be used, and reassured me that my banking account would not be accessed, and that no personal information i.e. SSN, DOB would be required. Throughout the entire process He demanded that I be on the phone with him. He directed me to Walmart where he described the cash card (visa vanilla pre pay cards) were and explained the amounts that I had to load onto the cards. After 5 minutes, he then stated that he got word from upper authority that these cards were not working and that I had to get GREEN DOT MONEY CARDS. I loaded the lump sum onto the card and proceeded to the parking lot, again while continuing on the phone. He threatened to have me arrested again if I spoke to anyone without asking permission first. I completed the transaction and even still, he demanded that I continue the phone call or else he would get me fired. After this transaction, the "Officer" said that my debt was resolved however, more money was required to remove my name from the list of tax evaders that would be handed over to the local district court in the morning. He said that if this lump sum was not paid then I would be arrested by higher authority. I jumped through hoops for over an hour only to be told that I had another fee to pay. I refused to pay any more money and ended the phone call.

Throughout the entire phone call, I was afraid to hang up. I am an educated citizen. I knew that this was a scam, and yet I still followed their plan. I feared for my freedom, and feared for my job and threatened with the thought of going to prison and the thought of losing my job/never being able to work in the state again, I was willing to follow any scam.

Caller an automated voicemail asking for a call back to fix an issue with my file. When called back, the person answered the phone as the "Internal Revenue Service". I did not give any personal information and did not continue the call. It is my assumption that this is possibly a scam of some sort.
