Total money lost $500
Type of a scam Tax Collection

A call was made to my husband's cell phone. They claimed to be the IRS and that we owed back taxes. They told him the payment needed to be made in $500 iTunes cards. They told my husband where to buy them in town. He bought 1 card at 1 store. He questioned as to whether it was legitimate they threatened him and said they were at the jail in town and would come and arrest him if he didn't pay. He was told to scratch off and tell them the number on the card so they could cash it. He bought 2 cards and only gave them the number on one of them. He went to the bank and asked them about this and they said a lady in town had been scammed the same way for $4,700! He was on the phone with them and said he was across the street from the jail. They persisted and when he said he was at the jail, they hung up. He was able to return the 1 $500 card that he had not scratched off thankfully. These people were SO persistent!! My husband is embarrassed that he fell for this scam and doesn't want anyone to know about it.

Ms. Mary S*** an 85 year old woman, received a call from someone claiming to work for the IRS. This person told Ms. S*** that if she didn't pay them they would sue her. Ms. S*** was then given a phone number to call, 585-524-4638 so she could make payment arrangements. Ms. S*** got off the phone and called the ScamPulse.com right away

I was told that the IRS has been trying to get ahold of me by mail and I have not responded. Legal action was about to be taken. I have not received anything in the mail from the IRS. Years ago I had been contacted by the IRS and I always got things resolved through the mail or on the phone.

number was left on my answering machine, I called and as soon as I heard the Indian accent. I knew it was a scam, but stayed on the line. They hung up on me 3 times when I complained about the noise behind them The 4th time I called I got a Indian accented Paul Davis, who after I gave a wrong phone number and asked ALOT of questions, he hung up on me,,After awhile I called back got the same Paul Davis who told me to go F--- myself. That made me laugh and I asked him if he kissed his mother with that potty mouth and finally I hung up...SO I though I should list this scam with you. All I have is a phone number. But you guys go have some fun with them. Maybe you can get Mr. Potty Mouth.....Thank You

Had a message from this number 662-715-0529 claiming to be the IRS. I called back from my cell, so he asked me for my telephone number and I gave it (figuring it was public information anyway). So, he asked if I was ........ and I said yes. He then asked my address and I said yes. I knew it was a scam from the beginning, but I just wanted to see how they would try to get info out of me. It was a foreign accent with plenty noise in the background. I finally told the scammer that I was not giving anymore information and I demanded him to tell me why the IRS was filing suit against me and asked why I did not receive any certified letters in the mail notifying me of taxes that I may have owed. He actually told me that if I hung up I would pay the consequences. I demanded an explanation! As he put me on hold, I googled the number and saw it was involved in many scams. When I heard noise in the background again, I immediately heard a dial tone. He hung up on me. I just want to report this information and hopefully this can be stopped. It is a disgrace that this is going on and has not been stopped yet. I hope these people who robbed so many people get caught and are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Thank you
