I have received a call from IRS 2 times now telling me that the IRS is filing a lawsuit against me, call 202 865 2383 not mentioning my name, this time. This seemed to be a computer generated call sounding like a female robot. the other caller was a man giving his name and # telling me to help them to help me - the same type of scam.

Received a phone call from 518-595-4404. The message said that they were filing a claim on me for unpaid taxes and I should call them back to discuss the matter. I know this is a scam as I am in good standing with the IRS. Please be aware that these calls are FAKE and a SCAM.

Caller identified himself as a representative of the IRS. He very believably explained that an audit was done on her 2012-2015 tax returns. He said the audit revealed a large sum of money was owed and prior attempts to contact were unsuccessful. The conversation was lengthy, At some point he asked how much could she pay that day, and she replied, "About $2,000." He kept her on the phone as he explained the "agreement the IRS has with Apple for payment." She purchased 4 $500 iTune gift cards from the Dollar General and read the numbers off to the man.

Called claiming they were filing a federal lawsuit and I needed to call. When you call the number they answer "IRS" and you can tell it's in someone's home or some kind of room but I know it isn't the IRS because they don't call....message that is played when you answer the incoming call is very robotic

On July 19, 2016, I received a phone call from a Washington, D.C. number, from an Officer William Smith, badge number 00839 informing me I was going to be arrested within the next few hours due to defrauding the federal government for nonpayment of federal taxes. I explained that the taxes were in non collectable status. The officer continued to tell me I was going to be arrested and I would be in jail for 8 months and upon my arrest I would not be able to call anyone. Further If I called anyone while in this process, I would be immediately arrested. I panicked and asked what could be done to make this go away. I was asked how much cash I had on hand and how much money could I put my hands on. I said I had a tax refund coming back and that would be about 2k, however, I was not able to access that at this time. I said I could get $800 immediately. I was directed to get off my house line and call in on my cell phone line because they were recording the call and I needed to keep the line open while I went to my bank and again I was not tell anyone abut what I was doing. I obtained the money and was directed to go to Walgreen's, I was given the address on Chagrin Blvd and purchase an I-tunes card. When I arrived at Walgreen's I was directed to purchase the I-Tunes card which was green or turquoise with pink with an apple logo on it. I purchased the card for $500, there was no charge for the purchase of the card. I asked the officer why was I purchasing an I-tunes card to pay an IRS debt? I was told something about FTC regulations. I was also told my IRS debt was being reduced, all late charges and penalties were being discharged and I would be paying $100.00 per month to take care of the balance of the debt. When I purchased the card I went back to my car and was asked to read the number from the back of the card, which I did several times. The number was ***for $500.00. I was directed to go back into the store to purchase another card for $300.00 and not to go to the same cashier, which I did. The second cashier asked if I was purchasing the card to pay a bill or someone, I said yes and she said don't do it, it's a scam. The phone line was still open. I left the store and drove to the police station to make a police report. The caller said I would be arrested and after having spent an hour on the phone with me, he could not be lying and lose his job. I told him I would take my chances with the police. When I told the police what happened, they took the report and told me not to expect to get the money back, that it was a scam.
