Type of a scam Debt Collections

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.

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.

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.

3 of our 6 employees received phone calls on June 28, 2018 between 7am and 1:30pm and the person on the phone said they were with the IRS and we all needed to take immediate action regarding a claim with the IRS. No information was given and one rep was very rude to one of our employees. The other 2 just hung up.

Wanted everyone to have a heads up.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

Received recorded phone message from "IRS" about debt collection on my cell phone. I knew sounded very strange since I do not give out my personal cell number; so I called number back and the person answer the phone "IRS" . Person had foreign accent and you could hear multiple people in background. The foreigner asked for a 5-digit reference code. When I did not have a code, he said well then give me your full name, address and phone number. I immediately informed this person he was a fraud and he hung on me.

I tried calling the same number from my business land line and after ringing continuously; someone picked up on the line and did not say anything and hung up. Tried again from land line phone and no answer.
