I received a phone call at 10:49 A.M. (Central-Standard Time) from a person claiming to be an IRS Agent named Stephen Jordan. He provided me with his Identification number, which is IRM 2215 and my case number: CP069T. He said that my taxes were being investigated from the years 2014-2016 and that there were three counts (Count 1, Count 2, Count 3) of the tax code that I had violated in the amount of $4,969.00. He informed me that the call was being recorded and that anything that I say on the phone call would and could be used against me in court. He said that there was a warrant out for my arrest, that all of my accounts were frozen, and that my wages would be garnished if I did not comply. He said that the IRS has made repeated efforts to contact me and that since I have not been able to be contacted, he was calling me directly. I informed him that I was on the IRS website and that the website specifically states that any attempts to communicate with taxpayers would be made via certified US mail. He said that if I did not immediately comply that I would be subject to the full consequences of the law. He asked me if I had completed my tax returns myself or if I have them completed by an accountant. I shared with him that I had an accountant but did not provide any sensitive information. He asked if I wanted to settle my claim and I refused, referring back the IRS website. He wished me luck and informed me that the police would be coming to get me.

Had a voicemail this morning. It was a robo-call.

It was abbreviated, but I heard IRS...criminal issue associated with your SSN ...please call before it goes to the state courthouse.

Later this evening from them, so I answered. It was an Indian-sounding man who stated he was with the IRS. I asked who I was speaking to, and he said "I don't know". You don't know who I'm talking to? "No", then he hung up.

Type of a scam Government Grant

I received a call with the caller ID showing as a call from Washington DC. I let it go to voicemail. I listened to the message and they said I had a $9,000 grant coming to me and to call for more information. I did call back but the man had such a heavy accent I barely understood him. I was able to understand that he was supposedly with the IRS and the grant was for older people to help them. All I had to do was send $250 via Money Gram. That's when I told him he was full of it and hung up.

I got a phone call from the IRS saying that I owed them $3000. This was odd because I filed exempt for the last two years. I tried to set up a payment plan but they wouldn't do that without me sending them money, $740.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I had a partial message on my answering machine threatening possible legal action if something isn't worked out. They said it could be due to identity theaft. I called the number on my caller id, and got a man with a thick indian accent who said he was an officer for the irs named david allen. He asked me if i was given a case number and when i told him no he asked my name. Then after i gave him my name he asked for my social security number and when i said no he became very irritated. When he asked me why i told him that the IRS would never ask for that info over the phone. He became more irritated and reiterated that he is an officer for the IRS. Then I hung up.
