The guys name was Kevin Murphy. He said I have been defrauding the IRS since 2013-2017 and I owed over $4000.00. And if I did pay the cops would be at my door in about 15 minutes. I knew was fraud so I gave him nothing.

I got 2 phone messages asking for a call back, I spoke to a foreign man claiming to be from IRS. He asked for man name, zip code, and case number. I asked when did IRS start making calls, and he hung up. You could hear quite a few people in the background.

recording said we think you underpaid taxes to avoid prosecution you must call immediately. Called number and a young girl answered; this number was on caller ID, she didn't know what caller ID was, you could hear people in the back like a call center. Who are you? she stated IRS, I stated the would sound more official I stated this was a scam and she asked if this is scam why did you call back she hung up? Phone number showed Jackson Mississippi.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I have received several calls that go to my answering machine that claim to be from the IRS, or the Sheriff's department wanting to arrest me. They say I have to pay money or I will be arrested. The dialect they use does not sound like an American English, it's foreign.

I am a Sr. Citizen. I called the and they said it was a scam.

Victim Location 43537
Type of a scam Tax Collection

I received a voice mail message from IRS on July 2, 2018

The message was I needed to call 281-947-9009 Immediately

to get details of my case file. I did not return call. I do not believe I have any

issues with IRS. Surely it is a scam. Not sure if tracks these complaints.

I do know that even though I am on a do not call list, I keep getting more and more

phone calls from unidentifiable numbers.

Thank You,

I got a call yesterday around 3:20 p.m. saying they were the IRS Investigations Department and that either I or my attorney needed to call them. I don't owe the IRS any money so I knew it was a scam.

Hello do not hang up the phone. This is an urgent message. You owe money to the IRS and if we do not hear from you within 24 hours the police will be at your door.

I received a call from phone number 646–3 68–5573, New York New York. They said on a voicemail that they were part of the IRS and that I owed money and I would be having consequences if I didn’t call them within 24 hours. I know IRS does not call you for collections like this. Please look into this if possible. Thank you

Scammer trying to say I owed back taxes and there's a warrant out for my arrest.

Victim Location 67226
Type of a scam Tax Collection

They said there were 4 different warrants out on me and never gave my name or information about me. This is a work phone number for the Catholic Care Center and they called over 10 times within 5 hours. I listened to it twice. It was definitely a recording of a women's voice, but sounded like a robot.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

The caller identified herself as an IRS employee working in their Litigation Dept. She notified me that the IRS had filed a lawsuit against me to collect back taxes. Since the IRS NEVER calls a citizen on the telephone for any reason, especially for collection or filing a lawsuit, I hung up the phone.

Type of a scam Tax Collection

I believe the letter my family rec’d in the mail from the IRS is a fraud.

It is asking for my father’s death certificate for the year 2015.

My father died in 2016. I was concerned that someone was filing a false tax return in my parent’s name.

It has my father’s ss#, full name, my mother’s full name, and my brother’s address (the mail is being forwarded to him because both parents have died)

I called the phone number listed for questions, realizing that it had too many digits 1-800-267-466-1040.

It was an automated machine that said “press 1 if you are over 50 or press 2 if you are under 50”

I pressed 1 and it said I was eligible for a free medic alert system and wanted me to press more numbers.

I hung up and called back. This time I pressed 2, thinking it would connect me to the IRS.

After pressing 2, it said that I was eligible for a free roadside assistance package and wanted me to press more numbers.

My concerns are that it is a scam to try to get older people to give information on themselves to get something free. In addition, If my mother was still alive, she was instructed to send a copy of the death certificate in order to get her refund.

Also, they had complete social security numbers and info, so I am concerned about identity theft.

As far as we know, the scammer has not gotten any money. They may have requested a credit card if I stayed on the line long enough, but I hung up.

Thank you for you help in this matter.
