IRS Scam call received

Victim Location 75703
Type of a scam Tax Collection

I got a call 2131415163 with the caller ID saying it was "Unknown". It was a robotic voice saying it was the IRS and they had been trying to get in touch with me but this was my last chance before they took me to court. They gave me reference number 2134261497 and told me to call them back. I know the IRS only contacts you by letter.

Received a call supposedly from the IRS about unpaid taxes & they were going to file suit against us. We have always paid our taxes on time so I knew this was a scam. The phone # on caller ID was 509-368-7081 but the message left a different call back # 202-763-1778

I am not sure if you would be interested to know of a phone message I received today. The message was that the IRS is filing a lawsuit against me and said I should call 202-766-3301 immediately. Of course I recognized this as a scam and did not call. I am a senior (85 years of age) and I know these people are targeting vulnerable seniors.

My email was hacked into just last week so I am very aware of problems like this. I changed my password, but unfortunately, many of my friends opened the email they received, putting their computer at risk.

"Officer Richard Williams" says I am the subject of a legal lawsuit for tax evasion and fraud. He claims to be an IRS agent. Said I need to call him immediately to resolve the issue or I will be arrested. I was to call him at 352-464-6034 or face the consequences.

Of course he knows nothing about me when he left the phone message (ie: my name or who he was calling, address, etc) He has left messages over the last couple of months several times.

This scam states: "We have made several attempts to reach you, this call to offer 'Shirley' from the 'inferno revenue service' This is to inform you that the IRS is filling a law suit against you. an urgent call back is needed by you at 202-536-5775."

I received 3 phone calls from 315-277-9195, stating that they were from the IRS and that they have a law suit against me and I needed to contact them at the above number. I didn't return their call. I just read about this scam in my local newspaper and thought I needed to turn in this number.

phishing email claiming to be the IRS requesting to open a link and provide personal information. Obviously a fraud based on grammer and general concept.

I received a call from someone claiming to be Bryan Snyder with the IRS. He said that he had an arrest warrant out for this address and that I would be arrested. He called from 262-383-3971 but he wanted me to call him back at 352-547-4013. I called the sheriff and he advised me to call the because it sounded like a scam.

On 2/23/16, I received via my cell phone (which by the way, I only give out to close friends and family) four voice messages through the day from 206.899.6305 (WA, USA). Each from female computerized/auto message saying: "From IRS/Internal Revenue Service, reason for call is to inform you that IRS is filing lawsuit against you. To get more details on this case file, call 206.899.6305." On 2/24/16, I received a voice message from my cell phone from "Unknown" with similar message that IRS has been trying to reach me regarding lawsuit filed by IRS. This time it was from a male (calling himself: Officer from Internal Revenue Service) but left no phone number to return call.

I did not call the callers back because I know this is a scam as IRS always sends information via direct postal mail. However, I am most concerned there will a vulnerable person who will not know this and will get hurt by trying to be a good citizen and providing personal data and/or money to these crooks. Please strive to shut these criminals down.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received a phone call stating that I owed several thousands of dollars in back taxes. He stated that I was going to go to jail and be fined $90,000 or more in court fees and penalties. He said I had to pay the debt immediately and would wait on the phone for me to get the money. I then told him I needed more time and became more aggressive. He said that they will be at my door and charges have been pressed. I was able to get him to give me a number to call back once I had the money. I then called my tax preparers and they informed me that it's a scam. I was instructed to get payment information. I then called him back and told him I had the money. He said he would instructions through the payment process on the EFT#. I told him no he would not, that I wanted the and I would do it on my own. He then laughed at me and hung up the phone. I then received a call from another one but this one came in from Jamaica. That started another series of issues. In all I received several calls over a period of two days.
