Type of a scam Tax Collection

I got a voicemail that said this:

"Executed by the US treasury depositing for tax evasion and tax fraud. Ignoring this will be an intentional attempt to avoid initial appearance before a magistrate, judge or a grand jury for a federal criminal offence. Which is against your name. For more information on your case you can contact the tax and crime unit at extension 201 4197467021. We'll be glad to share your case information and help you with you situation.

I did not call them back and instead I called the IRS to inform them about the situation at 1 (800) 829-1040. After a talking for a few minutes I was advised to report this scam to this website.

Thank you

A recorded message states they are from the IRS and that I must make immediate contact because my SS # has been linked to criminal activity. I was given a choice to call back (a number was given) or to press 1 to speak to an "investigating agent." I received two of these calls. The first was from the 833 number, which came up as suspicious by my carrier. I just blocked the number. I knew right away it was a scam. The second call came from the 202 number. I can see how people get hooked by these crooks - the recorded message was very convincing. Even though I knew it was a scam, I pressed 1 to speak to an agent - mostly to see what they would say. The person on the other end of the line answered as "Officer" so-and-so, and had an obvious 'English as a second language' accent. He immediately attempted to take control of the conversation and convince me that he was really trying to help me because I was in serious trouble. That is when I ended the conversation by telling him I was reporting all of this to the FBI cyber crime unit. Officer so-and-so hung up. Again, pretty elaborate story line, and scare tactics. Don't fall for it. The IRS does not call you PERIOD. The IRS does not call to tell you your ss# has been linked to criminal activity. They do not call. If you are linked to criminal activity in any way the police will show up at your door and arrest you with a warrant. No one calls ahead. Please don't fall for these scams.

These scammers will first call using an automated voice saying to not hang up, this is an emergency, there is a warrant for your arrest. Then they will leave a phone number for you are to call back. When you do, a man will most likely answer and will sound legitimate. He will say you've called the Internal Revenue Services and will give you a "case number" and "badge number". In my personal experience, he had my maiden last name and threatened me by saying I owed the IRS $2,989 and I explained that I used H&R Block so I will contact them then. At this, he got escalated and said I was on a recorded line and that I was responsible, not anyone else. He "transferred" me to his supervisor who sounded just like him but with a slight souther twang. He proceeded to also threaten me and tell me that I had a warrant for my arrest and that if I disconnected the call 911 would call me and I would be picked up at my workplace. I told him I knew my rights and that this sounded like a scam call. He got upset at that and I hung up. literally 1 minute later I got a call and 1(911) did pop up on my caller ID. I answered and it sounded like the same man asking for me but using my maiden last name, I hung up. At this point, I was shaken up and was searching for myself online. He called a second time and I didn't answer. I googled the IRS actual phone number called and had them verify my account and the representative also told me that, that was scam call and they have gotten reports about that same situation

Some voice recording that starts halfway through a sentence about my ssn being suspended from “suspicious activity” and to call back and press one if I want to fix the situation.

I received a call from phone number 530-378-9374. It was a recorded message telling me that they were the IRS and I had 4 allegations pending against me for taxes. I was supposed to call the number right away or else in 2 hours there would be federal agents sent to get me.

I called the number to see what they would say, and there was a bunch of background noise, and then a lady with a heavy accent answered. When I started asking her if she thought I was going to fall for this, she hung up.

It is a recorded call claiming to be the IRS and that my social security number has been suspended due to fraudulent activity. I hung up and did not give them any info (they ask you to press 1 to get to a person). They keep calling back, I've gotten about about 6 calls in one day. I got these same scam calls for several days in a row a couple months ago. They change the phone number they call from so even when you block their number they keep calling back.

On May 2, I received a call from the "IRS." They said I owed the IRS over $7,000, and they would let me make a $30 payment the next day (I didn't have any money that day). I called today, and no one answered. I got suspicious and called BBB, who told me it was a total scam. Unfortunately, I think I gave them my SSN, but ScamPulse.com gave me several suggestions to protect myself. Hurray for the BBB!

I only listened to the first part of the pitch..."If you are receiving this call the IRS is taking legal action..." that when I disconnected. If it were the IRS, they would know who you are and would be asking for you up front.
