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.

Received a call left on answering machine identifying caller as IRS and that they were filing lawsuit against us. They left a call back # 914-499-8220. Of course we did NOT return the call. We are seniors and try to keep up with scams we hear about and always careful and screen all our calls.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

received a call from 206 708 2849 this morning with a recorded male voice instructing me to call 206 201 0042 because the IRS was proceeding with a law suit against me due to the nonpayment of taxes. I know that It is a scam because the IRS does not call people. Just figured that I would report this.

I never called the other number to proceed any further or to investigate.

IRS impostor, indicating I was in violation of several IRS breaches, filing a fraudulent tax return, violation of IRS act, and tax evasion. Did not allow me to ask questions, was very belligerent, multiple threats of a warrant for my arrest. When I asked questions, he accused me of being rude, that he didn't care if _they_ were being rude, he was just doing his job, he didn't care about me, I was just a number. Then he advised that if I spoke more than yes or no, recorded the call, had any conversation with 3rd party during this call or had any background noise, he would immediately terminate the call and issue a warrant for my arrest. Said I had committed treason, that Homeland security is involved. When I answered his questions, he said he didn't believe me and thought I was being distrustful, that I was trying to dodge taxes. He cited two mailings to my address, the second saying that I had 30 days to respond. Since I didn't this was only a courtesy call to advise me they were sending sheriff to handcuff me and drag me to jail for three days, until I had my courthouse trial. He said that since I had a clean record, and although he was surprised I was trying to evade arrest, he could transfer me to a Sr. Case Manager who might have a *might* have time-sensitive alternative. Transferred me, and she began asking the same questions. I advised that I was hanging up, and terminated the call.

Very convincing call from an actual IRS general number in Buffalo. 716-200-5100 with a call back to 716-200-4980. Indian/Pakistani accents. Very threatening. Threatened my with impending arrest for tax evasion. Read an alleged affidavit that basically said I had broken just about every tax law.
