Type of a scam Phishing

I received a recorded voicemail stating that I was receiving a final notice from the IRS about being sued. I have verified independently with the IRS that this is not the case. I called the number back and told them that I was reporting them to the as a phishing scam, and got hung up on. The telephone number this scam originated from is 202-341-1764, showing Washington, DC as the location.

Recorded message claimed to be from the IRS and I needed to call 551-236-6054 to clear-up the issue or it would be turned over to the Grand Jury or Magistrate court for legal action. I ignored the call, but wanted to report it.

First Message:

This is an automation message from the IRS. It’s in regards to a Lawsuit filed against you; before it takes legal face, call us back on our hot line division at 757-951-1267 to justify this matter as quick as possible.

Second Message:

Voice message starts IRS -this message is intended to contact you regarding enforcement action executed by us treasury, intending your serious attention; ignoring this will be intentional and this is our second attempt. To avoid prosecution by a grand magistrate judge or grand jury for a criminal office; please call 509-359-1427 to speak to a federal agent. This is the final attempt to reach you.

I didn't call either number back.

Call from a fake number stating they are the IRS. When I called them back they got an attitude with me because I called him out for being a scam and proceeded to tell me [censored] you [censored] you [censored] you.

I received a phone call informing me that a warrant was out for my arrest. That I needed to pay in full. There was an issue in the amount paid to me from 2013 and my taxes get audited every 5 years. It was very alarming until I started doing research. The number is 844-248-6951. They had an Indian accent and seemed to be in a call center environment representing the IRS from DC.

Type of a scam Credit Repair/Debt Relief

IRS called and left a phone number 347-560-5662 on my answering machine. They said it was a final notice for back taxes. And filing a lawsuit against us. I called back and an agent asked for my phone number. She then gave me an IRM #201223. I told her I didn't owe any taxes and then we were cut off. I tried to call back, and now I can't get through to that number.

I am at my grandmother's residence and an automated call came through on her home phone from 214-838-9668 stating that the IRS has filed a lawsuit and to call the number above to speak to someone regarding the matter. When I called a man answered the phone advising that I have reached the IRS and provided his title and name as Officer Winston Chapel. I explained to him that I had just received an automated message and he asked if I would verify my grandma's name, dob, and last four of her ss#. I did, and he proceeded to advise that there has been a dispute regarding tax returns between 2006 - 2009 and the IRS has made 2 attempts to deliver certified letters to my grandmothers residence in Sept and Dec 2015 and this is their final attempt to resolve this matter. He asked if we'd be willing to pay the amount owed of $5000.00 today or he could offer a payment plan with a minimum deposit today of $2,300 and $100 monthly payment. He advised that if we are unable to agree to a payment today that an arrest warrent will be issued and the local authorities will come to the house today to arrest my grandmother. He provided me with his badge # and a supposed case #. I advised him that we would need time to have our lawyer look into these allegations and he advised that we had to make a decision right now of whether we will set up the payment plan otherwise the local authorities will be notified and an arrest will be made today. I advised him that we wanted to look into these allegations to ensure that this isnt a scam because I don't these allegations are valid nor is this process legal. He advised that it's not a scam, but, if I think so and do not resolve the matter with him we will be paying the consequence of imprisonment. I said ok and hung up.

I called the Virginia Beach Police Department to speak with an officer about this call and was informed that this was definitely a scam call to distort money. I was advised to add a scam report on the the BBB. I believe these folks are targeting the elderly and I'm not at all sure of how they are getting their listings. Please be aware and spread thr word about this scam. Thank you.

April 14, 2016 approximately 8:30 AM, we received a recorded message telling us that the IRS was trying to get in touch with us & for us to return call to 207-229-8990. Then about 10:30 (ish) a second recorded message came in stating that it was urgent to return the call or Charges would be filed against us from the IRS..Then about 11:47, a 3rd recorded message came in stating the IRS was going to file charges against us..I let the answering machine record this message. Once again about 3:30 PM..another recorded call from the same voice with the same message..Again, I let it record on my answering machine.
