Type of a scam Tax Collection

Received a call from Washington saying they were from the IRS investigative team and they found discrepancies on taxes from 2008-2012. They said they mailed me a statement in July 2015 and asked me if I wanted this to go to court. I told them I never received anything in the mail and they said we just verified your address. I told them I was calling the state of Ohio irs and the bbb and they hung up on me

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received two voicemails on 3/17/16 that I am being sued by the IRS and asked for an urgent return phone call. My husband called back and they asked him for his home address. When he did not give it the lady said the address and asked if it was correct, saying that they needed it for identification purposes before proceeding. When he agreed they told him I was being sued by the IRS for a tax collection. He told her to not call back and threatened to call the police if she did.

My husband received a call, saying they were the IRS; from phone number 305-407-1377, the contact name was Nikki Johnson; she told him he owed over $4,000 in back taxes from the last two years. He phoned me, gave me the number and the contact name. When I phoned, a man answered, "Thank you for calling the IRS, how may I help you?". I explained that I was returning a call and he asked me if this was [my son's name], I asked, "Why do you want to speak to my son?", he responded, "This is your son?", I said yes. He replied, "Then he is a minor?", I said yes...then repeated my question why did he want to speak to him; "I am calling about the phone call my husband received." He asked me for the phone number in reference, and I repeated the same number I already provided. He asked what his name was, I gave it to him and he asked me to hold a moment. When he came back, he said the case worker was not available, could I call back. I told him no, that she was welcome to call me back when she was available; but before you go, what is the case number for my husband? He asked, "The case number?" I said yes, "...you asked me for a case number earlier when asking about my son...what is the number for the case on my husband?" He replied, "I do not have that information because it is not my case." I told him, "NO, if you are the IRS, then you have access to the information; let me speak to a supervisor!" He said he was the supervisor and I told him to let me speak with a supervisor over him. He replied, "If you want to speak to a supervisor over me, you will have to wait one to two years for a response." I replied, "NO, IF YOU ARE REALLY THE IRS, YOU WILL LET ME SPEAK WITH A SUPERVISOR RIGHT THIS MINUTE, OR I AM REPORTING THIS NUMBER AS A SCAM!" I was disconnected.

I have received multiple phone calls from this number (704)530-6940 with an automated recording telling me that the IRS is filing a lawsuit against me and to contact this number immediately. I spoke with the IRS a year ago about a similar incident and they said it was a scam. Please help me.

This is the content of an voice mail that I received today:

Suit which has been filed against your name with the legal arrest warrant. So if you need any information about your case just kindly call us back on my call back number

205202013682052020136. Again this is James Anderson. All the Internal Revenue Service.

Thank you.

I called the number and a person with Indian accent answered the phone with Internal Revenue Service. I was able to hear people talking in the back ground. I told this person, which I barely understood, that I had received a phone call regarding an outstanding warrant. He then tried to connect me and after a few seconds the phone hung up on me.

I received a voicemail from someone claiming that the sheriff would be out with a warrant for my arrest. I called the number back and they asked for my phone number. Unfortunately I gave it to them. The person had a heavy accent and was hard to understand. He claimed I owed back taxes and that the sheriff would arrest me. They called from 954-906-7277. I realized it was probably a scam so I called you (BBB).

I had a voice mail that said it was urgent to call. He didn't use the word urgent, but it was something to that affect, because the voice was deep and low and the first part didn't come in clear. It left a number to call. 6465132919. I started not to call but thought it might have something to do with another matter I've been waiting to hear from. So I called and immediately recognized a foreign voice and was suspicious. So I ask what company they were with. He said, IRS and I immediately hung up. I had my phone carrier to block this number. In the details of the number, it said New York. After blocking this number from my phone, I had another call that I did not answer. I didn't get it wrote down, but it started with 202. When I went back to look, that call has disappeared. I am registered with the National Do Not Call Registry and have registered a complaint with them as I've been registered since January of 2016. However, I though it needed to be reported and investigated. I've heard about such calls and that's why I hung up. But I fear for the elderly and those like my mom who do not hear well. These scammers need to be stopped just like terrorist groups. It is not right for them to continue to prey upon innocent people. I'm not sure how or if you need to contact me, but I hope you will take this serious. It is the time of year that many people are either paying or getting refunds and they are using that to their advantage. Thank you.

Told me I was being recorded for IRS purposes, for my local authorities. Said I owed over 6 grand in fraudulent taxes and gave them reason to believe was not negligent about it. He (daniel brown, batch ID 635027, with foreign accent). He then told me that he was going to transfer me to his supervisor to figure out a payment plan. I told him I wanted this in a form of letter sent to my address that he said I lived at. He said that I only have 1 hour to figure out a plan. I hung up. He tried to call back. I did not answer. The number is coming from Vancouver, WA (360)9491624

caller said from IRS and that we were going to be sued for fraudulent tax returns 2009-2014. Very "commanding" "don't talk just listen". We use an accountant, hadn't received any notices of problems so were sure almost from the beginning that it was a scam. We did not get to the point of money demands as scammer knew we were on to him and hung up. Accent sounded East Indian.

Claimed I had been audited by IRS and I was being sued by IRS for fraud. Said I had made some calculation errors on my forms and that I owed them 4600. They also said a warrant for my arrest had been issued. The first guy sounded foreign and I couldn't understand him clearly. When he said his name was Frank Winston I knew it was fake. He transferred me to someone else I could understand more clearly. He also had an accent and he said his name was officer Danny Green, badge number 678106. I knew it was a scam by them using names that did not fit their accent. Plus they said I could not pay by check, debit or credit card. I would have to go get cash. That is when I hung up on them. They called me back and the number appeared as 911. The first number they used was 202-297-6946 and it showed as coming from DC USA. They used scare tactics.

My boss received numerous calls from people claiming to be an officer of the IRS. They say this is her final warning and they are going to bring a lawsuit against her. She knows there is no problem with the IRS and just wanted to let people know.
