Type of a scam Tax Collection

On Tuesday, February 9, 2016, an automated message was left on my home telephone in a woman's voice saying that they were calling from the IRS in Washington and that this was our last opportunity to take care of our tax debt. Later on that day, when my adult daughter arrived home, another call came in. She answered and spoke with a man who spoke with a very heavy Indian accent. He told her that she owed over $4,000 for back taxes and that she had filed fraudulent tax returns and was trying to defraud the government. She told him that she needed to speak with me and he told her that she could not speak with anyone and if she did they would be a party to the matter. He further told her that if she failed to pay the $4,000, they would be sending the police to arrest her. She called me at work from her cell phone and told me what had occurred. She was very upset and worried that she was in trouble with the IRS. She provided his telephone number to me and I said I would call to speak with the man. I called the number and I also was informed that I over over $4,000 to the IRS and had filed fraudulent tax return and was trying to defraud the government. I put him on hold and asked a colleague who is a part time tax preparer if the IRS places threatening phone calls to demand payment of money owed to them. She assured me that the IRS send correspondence and doesn't make phone calls or threats to tax payers and that it must be a scam. She advised me to contact the IRS myself which I did and was reassured by the IRS Representative that I owed no taxes and that the phone call was an attempt to scam me and my daughter. The man that I spoke with who was impersonating the IRS spoke with a very heavy accent and also threatened me with police arrest if I did not make a payment immediately. I did report the incident on the TIGTA website. Last week, we received yet another message on our answering machine claiming to be from the IRS in Washington. The call back telephone number that was left on the answering machine was (206) 451-9513.

The caller called and stated that he was Officer Edward Fitch with the IRS with the ID: IRM529700 - and he was calling because the IRS had filed a lawsuit against me. Stated that my taxes had been audited from 2008 to 2013 and found that I falsely reported earnings and owed $2400. He ask me if I wanted to handle in court or out of court because there was a warrant out for my arrest. I told him out of court and that's when he transferred me to someone else who stated I couldn't tell anyone about the call until after I received court documents. He said I needed to pay $500 up front then they would put the rest on a payment plan. I kept questioning him until he finally hung up the phone...

Mark Williams from the IRS office from phone number 360-209-8907 Ext 2128 called stating a Radom audit was done on my taxes from 2008-2012 and I underpaid $4986.00 and I would have to pay a penalty of $15,000 if something wasn't done in 24 hours. I would be picked up by federal marshalls and serve jail time. I supposedly received a notice in the mail July 2015 that wasn't responded to. (I never received anything).

I was called by 2 different numbers 206-201-4322 & 360-464-8671 and the messages left said I was being sued.

I returned the call 206-201-4322 and spoke to someone who said they are the IRS - ( Name: Alex Hall Badge #77809) Said they have a warrant for my arrest because I owed taxes from 2008-2013. Options where we can arrest you or you can resolve this now by paying in full or making a payment.

I have also reported this to the IRS on their website.

I received a call on my cell phone on Monday, 2/22/16 at 2:41pm EST from 360-810-6212. The message was:

Received voicemail from Internal Revenue Service [via text to speech program] Informing me that IRS is filling a lawsuit against me. **Transcription of call from voicemail** -- "...Internal revenue service the reason of this call is to inform you the irs is filing lawsuit against you to get more information about this case file please call immediately on our department number 206 319-8780 i repeat 206 319 8780 thank you." -- Google says Bainbridge Island, WA was where the call originated from at 12:34pm on Feb. 19th 2016

I figured I'd report this since I read about SCAMS in East Brunswick on patch.com and that reminded me about this voicemail.. Well hope it adds on another count when they catch these [censored]. I attached a copy of the voicemail file in mp3

Thank you for your time.

I received a robo phone voice mail message, indicating it was a "final notice" from the IRS. It actually left the same number to call back as showed up on caller ID. I have no tax issues, and I know the IRS doesn't contact people this way
